Happy Friday everyone!

This is my first layout for Pages in Time for the month of January.

I had a blast working with the new Harlee Quinnz Designs papers. I especially loved the green one, Butterfly shadows. I used Suepup's Sketch.

I distressed the green paper so that it would match the picture a little more since the picture was taken at the park where I got married 7 months ago (how time flies!). I cut a circle out of the DCWV brown cardstock and distressed the edges with a pair of scissor which is the same way I distressed the green paper. The Tim Holtz mask I cut with my Pazzles using a left over piece of brown paper. I distressed it with ink and applied a few dots of white 3D paint. The brown paper matting the picture, the other Harlee Quinnz Designs paper, I distressed using hole punchers, something I learned from Irene (scrapperlicious). I love this look! For the little butterflies I used the Martha Stewart Stamp and Punch set that I got for Christmas. The butterfly's trail I handmade with black stickles. I also rubbed some black stickles on the yellow flowers to mute them down a bit. Finally, for the title, I cut the word GRAND out of a transparency sheet with my Pazzles. I ran it through the cuttlebug with the Textile embossing folder to give it dimension. Then, I painted the back of the letters with the white acrylic paint. Finally, I inked the edges of the front of the letters to add depth.

Here are a few close ups:
