Another layout for DHs Aunt's Birthday Album ~ Guest of Honor ~ THIS LAYOUT WAS FEATURED OVER AT LASTING MEMORIES!! AND, WAS CHOOSEN AS ONE OF THEIR TOP 3!! THIS LAYOUT WAS AN HONORABLE MENTION IN THE TOP 3 OVER AT IF THE SHOE FITS SCRAP IT!!!

Hi everyone!! I completed another page for my DH's Aunts Birthday Album and wanted to share it with you.  I had this beautiful paper and thought it would be perfect with this photo of the "Guest of Honor".  I'm thinking that this will also be the first page of the album..  I really like the way it turned out!! 

Here are a few close ups...
Top Right...
  I did a little fussy cutting on the flowers and inked the edges just a little.. Stitched around the edges... Used the Martha Stewart Butterfly Die and added a couple of small pearls, and Distressed the Edges..


Bottom Right...
 You can see more of my Distressed Edges, Stitching, Martha Stewart Punch which I inked the edges and added small pearls to the centers..  Ribbon and Flower.. I inked the edges of the flower and then added the Bo Bunny Trinket, and finally part of my Masked Background.

Bottom Left...
More Distressed edges, Stitching, Fussing cut Flowers and then inked the edges and Fussy Cut Butterfly with stickles, Martha Stewart Butterflies with pearl centers, and some of my Masked Background.

This layout will qualify for a few challenges out there...
