Minnie's Butterfly Garden

Good Saturday morning to you all

Well I work a good bit of the night on this one...

But I think it was worth it.

When we went to Epcot they where having there flower festival for spring, and let me tell you it is AWESOME..... I will be making more layouts to show you. The landscaping they did was just breath taking. This was are first peek at Minnie's Butterfly Garden and WOW !!!!!

I thought I took pics of the Gazebo, but guess not, it is in a Gazebo with plastic chains hanging, so the Butterfly's don't get out.... It Is soooo Beautiful...but I did take pics of the rest of it....

this is a 2 page layout of the Garden, for this I used

Mickey & Friends ..... Minnie cut at 4 /1/2 ins

I wanted red polka dot paper for Minnie and didn't have it so instead I used Large Pearls....

They did the trick. In the pics Minnie & the Butterfly where done in all flowers ....they did an AWESOME job on them!

Indie Art .....Butterflys...cut at 3ins & 2ins I added pearls to the small one & embossed the large one with cuttle bug folder Swiss dots. pop dotted them& inked around the large one.

Walk in my Garden ....Caterpillar , inked it cut at 1 / 1/2ins , pop dotted it and flowers behind Minnie cut at 3ins& pop dotted.

Jubilee .... for the title Butterfly Garden cut at 1 in and shadowed.

DCWV summer stack paper

Glitter paper for pic frames

Home Accents.... the flourishes cut at 2ins & 3ins & 2/ 1/2 ins.

I cut the flower on the paper and stuck the pic under it to kinda frame it a little...

added Pearls to the flowers on the paper....and doodled .

stamped Celebrate Spring at the bottom with a studio G stamp.

I really like how this one turned out. The small pic under the Caterpillar is a real one , you can't see him that well ....he blends in to good.... but he is there !

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend

This is a simple ....OH MY .... did I just say that. I don't normally do simple layouts.
