Dream a Little Dream for me :)

Well blogging buddies,, it is Christmas Eve, the stockings are hung, I am 
just about ready to bake the pie and the cake for tomorrow,
and then it is off to bed for me! We are having just a small 
dinner tomorrow - a few friends coming over and that is it.

I made this layout a couple of weeks ago when I went to retreat.
I just haven't got around to taking a photo of it and getting it posted.
I bought this fabulous paper from Creative Imaginations a few
months ago and I knew exactly what I was going to do with it,
and what photo I was going to use. It just took me
a little while to get around to it :)
My inspiration was the challenge at Quick Quotes which 
was hosted by Barb this month - use Vellum on your 
project. Pretty simple right? So I broke out my butterfly punch
and got to work.
 I have fussy cut and layered the paper several times over. The very top layer was covered in a thin layer of Ranger Crackle medium and sprinkled with a little bit of glitter. 
My butterflies were punched from vellum with my Jenni Bowlin punch, I inked the edges with Powder Puff ink in Pink Cheeks, dipped them in WOW embossing powder and heat set them. I used my Stampers Big Brush Pen from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft in Warm Grey for the centers of the butterflies. 
Here you can see the crackle a little better, and one of the Prima hearts I scattered all around the page.
This blingy title I got at Michael's in the $$ bin, and the ribbon is Maya Road - I think!
I also used my Art Grip Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil  #126 to highlight my flowers on the layout. I added a little bit of stickles to everything - you can never have too much stickles!

There you have it! And, yes, it took forever to fussy cut that top page. 
But I think it was worth it!

Merry Christmas Everyone!
