She Goes where she pleases and pleases where she goes...

that's how I feel about my daughter Isabelle.
She makes me so proud! 
I created a layout using some photos 
captured last fall.  We were going
out to see a production of
Fiddler on the Roof 
so I made up her hair
and she is so beautiful!
I used sketch 55 from Sketchabilities:

Here is my layout:
(click for sharper image)

See I told you she's beautiful!
After a few tips from my readers I was able
to use my butterflies with slightly greater ease...
Cereal boxes are my new must upscale
because the thickness is perfect for the shadowed
butterflies and the texture really 
shows when running through
a folder.
The bottom layer of the butterfly was gray
 so I inked it white
 then rubbed in some color 
and add some pearlized ink.
Do you recognize the stamp sets?
They are Close To My Heart's
Playful Flourishes (single word sentiments)
Blooming Flourishes and
Butterfly Wings.
The rest of the embellishes were 
pretty old items
just waiting to find a home. 
I stamped the word dream onto a button
that I used black cord to attach to the layout
leaving it lose to mimic 
the flourishes. 
Well That's about it have a wonderful Saturday!
