Challenge me Happy Challenge # 16

I am absolutely thrilled to be the lucky winner of Challenge 15 at CMH,, it was a lovely surprise.... and to think I was not entirely happy with my layout, it was the first one of year..... so thanks to all the girls on the team,

So onto Challenge # 16, it's a receipe challenge and I really struggled with this, sooo many Pattern Papers, but I managed to actually keep the layout simple and still use all the ingredients, although I have to say I did want to add a little something extra... but didn't.

The Challenge :- Use the following ingredients on your project:
1 photo 
2 different cardstocks 
3 journaling spots/tags/etc 
4 words in the title 
5 patterned papers 
6 butterflies

Products used:
1 x Photo
2 x Cardstock (Black & White Bazzill Cardstock)
3 x Tags or similar (I have used 3 x Crate journal Tag Stickers)
4 x Word Title (Best Friends 4 Life)
5 x Pattern Papers (MME - Dilly Dally Best - Both Sides of Checkered Paper, Vines Paper, Websters'  Yellow PP)
6 x Butterflies

I absolutely love the new MME Dilly Dally Best range, so I whipped up this layout last night, using the same paper range.

Products used for this layout:-

MME - Dilly Dally Best - Both Sides of Checkered Paper, Vines Paper,the base is Howdy Doody Happy - Decorate Paper, Label Stickers, Dilly Dally Adventure Stamps, Pink Paislee Expressions Weather Wood Chipboard Alpha's, October Afternoon Mini Market Stickers, October Afternoon Holiday Style - Sprinklers - Red,

I really love the way this one turned out, here are a couple of close up shots.... to show the detail, gotta love that October Afternoon Sprinklers - it's my favourite product at the moment, I also love the rich blues, mustard and rich red colours of the Dilly Dally Adventure range, and it's suitable for both male or female layouts,

Thanks for looking and happy scrapping
