mother and daughter **flamingo scraps**

This picture was taken when my daughter Catherine was 2 weeks old at our annual burger and butterflies event to help remember children we no longer have with us, and for us it was for my other daughter Kristen.  Having Catherine there with me and the absence of Kristen makes the event that much more special.  The writing says "I have only held you in my arms for 2 weeks, but I know in my heart, soul and in my bones that I will love you forever my precious Catherine".

For this layout I used a tight to the center feeling, leaving the outside of the circle as an empty space.  All the flowers, butterflies, ribbons, doily, and cards are meant to draw your eye into the picture.

I used a digital file I had for butterflies, printed them out in various sizes, and then place a layer of crystal beads over them with Glossy accents.
I added extra Prima roses (the black ones) into the Prima vine for extra dimension and contrast.

I wanted to match the look of the "mother and daughter" note card with the stitching, but the "love" card did not have it.  So I cut it in a circle, traced the scalloped circle from the other card, and added faux stitching by punching holes in the paper with a paper piercer and connecting the holes with a pen.
