"Here & Now" by ~ Mistra Hoolahan

Hi lovelies!  I have another layout to share with you all today.  This one was so much fun, I think it helps that I have a kooky son to inspire me!

I have used Donna's Natural Beauty papers for this one, with some little cut out clouds from the Fun and Funky Paper Pad.  These little clouds are so darn cute!  I originally had the little 2x2 photos placed square in the squares... I lifted the layout up to hunt for something I'd lost underneath {as you do} and the photos shifted... and I preferred the look, it suits the silly photos!  Love little 'accidents' like that, the ones that are meant to happen.   

All the paper layers were distressed with the Distrezz-It-All, it's become my new best friend again - the poor thing was sadly neglected for a little while {I stole it's power point for something else}, but no longer!

I've made some flowers using Donna's Bitty Blossoms die.  They make just the right sized flowers for clustering.  Tracey has a fabulous little step by step on how she makes the Bitty Blossoms > HERE.  I'm still learning to perfect my method on these ones, I keep trying different ways, but Tracey has them just perfect!

I've hand cut out the title and clouds and used them as embellishments on the page...

... and have popped in some pearls into the flower centers, with a few scattered near the clusters.

Thanks for stopping by today, see you again soon!
