Swirlydoos 2nd Reveal

Hello friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This year Delilah's birthday fell on Thanksgiving. So instead of pumpkin pie we had birthday cake...lol!
Dream, Love
 With the first reveal, I felt that my two layouts didn't have my usual "fill the page" style. So, with this page I did layer upon layer and lots of pretty embellies! The butterflies are my newest addition to my Etsy Shop.
My first layout with Hot Air Balloons. At first I thought they weren't my thing. Now, I like them..hehe! They are a perfect embellie for a more masculine page. I didn't want to get to girly, so I held off on adding butterflies and tons of flowers.
And here is just a quick card I put together with left over scraps. I'm really trying to improve my cardmaking skills.
Thank you for stopping by and taking a peek! I really appreciate you taking the time!
Until my next post......

For my first layout I used the sketch made exclusive for Swirlydoos by Begga.

Here is the fabulous sketch. Be sure to join us for our Sketch Challenge over at Swirlydoos.
 This month it's my turn to do Anatomy of a Layout. You can find step by step instructions how I made this page HERE. The great thing about Anatomy of layout is it's only done with the main kit.
 I made this OTP project using the Technique kit. It was my first time using Gelatos...so easy and fun. I love the way this turned out and plan to make more OTP projects. I'm so disappointed because this picture does nothing for what the project looks like in person.
