Beautiful Girls (SATW, OUAS & 2Crafty)

I'm sharing with you today a layout created for my DT reveal at 2Crafty chipboard.

If you've seen this month's mood board at Scrap Around the World, you might have guessed that this layout was inspired by it with all its pretty pink hues and delicate girly images, which right away reminded me of my nieces.

I was also inspired by another favorite challenge blog of mine, the March sketch and journaling challenge at Once Upon A Sketch.

 I found that both challenges went perfectly together and were great inspiration to scrapbook this precious photo of the most beautiful girls in the world.

I handwrote my journaling on a tag... a little heartfelt wish for Ella and Daphne.  They are so full of life, happiness and personality, and I hope that they always stay that way.  I hope that life treats them well. :)

And no girly layout is complete without a butterfly 
and the "Graceful Butterfly" from 2Crafty is a beauty.

 I covered some of the chipboard with just white paint while other chipboard pieces like the  "Beautiful Girls" title were painted white and then dabbed with different pink shades of Silk Glazes.  This pretty vine that I tucked beneath my flower cluster comes from the  "Leafy Shrub Set 2" and the smaller frame is from the "Square Leafy Frame Set".

Visit the 2Crafty blog to see more beautiful projects made with 2Crafty chipboard.  The design team's talent is out of this world!

I'll be back here tomorrow to share some more of my chippie work!
