Scrapbooking the days of Summer

During the holidays we managed to get out into the bush a couple of times for walks, even though it threatened rain with overcast skies. One of the days we visited Girrakool National Park. We walked as far as the caves, crossing stepping stones over rain-filled creeks and had some good conversations along the way.
I really like this stampset: "Kindness matters" because it has butterflies designed to go with vintage style pages. It seems to match a lot of my stampsets at the moment. 
 For a small 6 x 6" page there is a lot going on starting with some
 "flower garden" embossing on the Elegant Eggplant cardstock.
Distressed edges on the patterned paper
Punched flowers from the Boho Blossom punch with added PEARLS
Embossed vellum butterflies (Beautiful wings embosslit)
 and of course the photo that has been cut out with the Beautiful butterflies die.
And the corner has been sprayed with shimmer paint mist for added sparkle.
Its appropriate that I have used the kindness matters stampset from Shelli Gardner's collection as the layout was inspired by one of her gorgeous vintage cards.

  1. Everything in this layout is making my heart skip a beat, i love it all. I really like how you have cut the photo out into a butterfly, very eye catching. There is so much going on. It's fun looking at all the details.
