Bird Is The Word

Magic
Been absent for a little while as I haven't had much time to scrap. Hubby has been away for for a couple of weeks (still 1 week to go) and I have had all these little dramas cropping up... these things always happen when he's away!!!.

Managed to start a LO last night and have just finished. Really enjoyed creating this LO for the challenge at Bird Is The Word this month. The challenge word is "MAGIC" and I knew straight away which photo I wanted to use and the papers to go with it. I pulled out my Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime pp's as it's so sweet and magical and perfect for this challenge.

Lots of fussy cutting, distressing and inking and a touch of lace and pearls. The butterflies are made with the Martha Stewart punch and a Scrapmatts butterfly chippie and I also used a Scrapmatts scroll chippie at the top of the page.
I just love this photo of Luke and Brittany when they were little as they look so sweet and innocent. My title reads "It's only in innocence you find any kind of MAGIC".
YIPPEE!!
YAY!! I have some wonderful news to share very soon... so excited :))))
Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving some love:) I'm off to leave some love for all you gorgeous girls right now!!
