And my butterfly obsession continues....

I am a butterfly addict. There. I admit it. Stamps, dies, diecuts, papers, charms, embellies...I just love butterflies. So you can imagine my absolute delight at getting these GORGEOUS new Prima papers from the Flights of Fancy range. I had recently been out at Point Heathcote with my children for a modelling photo shoot, and I took my own trusty camera along too. I took this shot of the children sitting on the lawn as quickly as I could focus  (before they started giggling, poking tongues, pulling faces or doing 'bunny ears' to each other.) I developed it in sepia tones to keep in with the feel of the Prima papers. Here is my LO I did for My 2 Angels ...called They are My World...

Materials used:
*Prima Flights of Fancy papers: Miss Pretty, Firefly, Faith
*Pink Paislee holly doodle - cubicle - alphabet stickers
*Carolee's Creations Adorn It Tiny Aqua Sandra alphabet stickers

The butterflies are hand cut from a piece of Miss Pretty, coated in Tim Holtz Rock Candy, with the tips of the wings dipped in Twinklets Diamond Dust, and a little bit of crystalina kindyglitz. I continued the diamond dust/crystalina kindyglitz theme by dribbling the glitter glue along the bottom of my photo, then sprinkling with Twinklets.

The title is Pink Paislee holly doodle stickers (cubicle) that I lightly coated in kindyglitz then finised with dimensional magic.

Thank you to all of you who commented on my son's birthday cake. The 'secret' to the volcano look was to use butter based icing, dribble it down thickly, then when the candles were dotted down the cupcake tower front then lit, the butter icing warmed up and became runny - et voila! Running lava.
