one for you, one for me

You know that feeling when you complete a layout that just melts your heart? Well this layout is one of those for me; I just adore it! It's not a great photo, but the photo is very sweet and takes me back down memory lane. :)

I also adore the (new to me) Heidi Swapp butterflies that you just add some mist to, wipe away the excess and let dry. Oh my! I have used these on two cards and this layout this week and I think I have my new favorite item! I had to stop by Michael's on my way home from work yesterday to pick up another package. I should have picked up several of them. lol Next time.

my layout was inspired by this really cool sketch on the My Scraps & More Sketches blog- sketch #30.  I originally had nothing but the pink chevron papers, but it lacked color and character so I added the yellowy papers and then thought a stripe of grey across the photo would add visual appeal. I just love mixing prints.
