My Beautiful Book-Reading Creature


I have used this photo from Kass' senior photo shoot before, but I wanted to create this one for my "wall of layouts."  It is a true representation of Kass...she is a beautiful book-reading creature.  

I used this week's sketch from the Crop Stop Challenge Blog for inspiration. 


The butterflies are punched from an EK Success punch & double layered to give them dimension.  I added a little Perfect Pearls to them to give them a nice shimmery sheen.  


The quote is the one that is on my Nook cover.
 It was perfect for this page!  
Supplies:
Paper ~ Basic Grey, Bazzill, The Kraft Outlet
Flourish Pearls ~ Prima
Perfect Pearls ~ Ranger
Dymo
