Shared moments together.....are the Best

Today I'm sharing a layout of my two sweet girls when they were bird watching from their breakfast table vantage spot in the kitchen. (hee hee) This photo was taken April 14th on their birthday...YES, they have the same birth date! :)   Miss Gali (the Mama) turned 7 and Lucy (Gali's daughter) turned 5. I've been telling my online scrapping friends that Lucy is tiny.  You can see the difference in head sizes very well in this photo!  LOL

I'm entering my layout in the Blue Fern Studios April 2016 Sketch Challenge.
It's a random draw challenge.  Click HERE to get the rules and join in!

I am so in love with Blue Fern Studios products.  All I can say is that they make me smile - enough said! 
All papers and chipboard on my layout are Blue Fern Studios. 
I used BFS Imagine Ink embossing powder color Oatmeal on the chippie pieces. 

For the metal word "together", I heat embossed with BFS EP color Peacock...and it is GORGEOUS!  Check out how detailed and clear the BFS stamp is!  It is from the Shabby Edges set.  I used Distress Ink color Fired Brick.

All of the butterflies were fussy cut from BFS paper. 
I added wire antennae to some of them and gave the one next to the word 'together' added dimension for its front wings. The large flower by Prima was perfect and so is one of the pretty BFS butterflies!

I die cut some ticket shapes and used foam tape to create a dimensional layer.
A little punching on another piece made for a cohesive look with the mesh chipboard.

A flag shape is in the BFS sketch, so I incorporated some into my design. I love how they look!

 Until next time.....have a great day!  Lisa, Miss Gali & Lucy >^..^<
