She... and Silence Is Not Always Golden

I have two completely different layouts to share today: a very boyish layout and a girly-girl layout. I do like to mix things up a bit.

I enjoy incorporating some of my favorite Scriptures into my layouts, and I have been wanting to use Proverbs 31:25 for quite some time. This picture is of my mother, my two sisters, and of me. It was a challenge to find a picture without one of our boys!

Once again, I used my Martha Stewart doily border punch to create the blue "lace." I just punched long strips of paper, inked the edges, folded them behind the mat, and then taped them behind the mat.

For the butterflies, I used my Paper Studio butterfly punch (I LOVE that punch!), applied a layer of diamond Stickles, and added a Robin's Nest dew drop to each one. I can always find a place for a butterfly. :)

Supplies Used:
Patterned Papers - Prima, Jenni Bowlin, and Basic Grey
Bazzill cardstock, Prima Flowers, Robin's Nest dew drops, Prima chipboard, Making Memories alpha stickers,Colorbox Ink, and Martha Stewart doily punch

Silence Is Not Always Golden

Silence is golden, or is it?!? I hardly ever doodle on my pages, but I thought that this page needed some white accents. I used up some of my scraps from one of my favorite lines of American Crafts papers to complete this.

Supplies Used:
Patterned Papers - American Crafts, Cosmo Cricket, and K&Co
American Crafts Thickers, Spare Parts chipboard letters, miscellaneous buttons, EK Success border punch, Uni-ball Signo pen, My Little Shoebox letter stickers
