Hi again.
Another layout today! Yay!
This one is a different style to the last few pages I have done lately and doesn't really have a title (I just loved the photo). If anything I suppose it would be called happy.

The extreme distress of the page came from Scrapville who have been holding ScrapBurst challenges all this month. ScrapBurst # 3 says : Stamp It Distressed. You must literally Distress this layout using Distress Inks, Distressing Tools and Distressing Techniques. As well as that, you MUST have at least ONE STAMPED IMAGE in the Background (using Distress Ink, and noting the colour used when entered)
A close up of the background xoxox's:

Another sketch challenge enterant aswell, this time Purple Pumpkins September sketch:

The sketch got a lil lost in all the distressing, but I assure you it is there!
The cluster at the bottom right is mostly Purple Pumpkin goodies and the layout was actually designed around the girl button, it is soo cute I just had to use it!

The distressed 'circle' is many sized squares cut out of 5 different pieces of paper then layered over a penciled circle to the back sheet.
I haven't used much (or any really) bling on my layouts yet, same with butterflies but they both seemed to fit perfectly and earned themselves some glue.

The inside of the big butterfly is a stamped image with I cut out and creased for dimension.

So what do you think of the different style? Did I make it work?
Thanks for looking!
