I *Heart* Her Eyes {Cosmo Cricket: Girl Friday}

I lifted this layout:
 From Maggie Holmes' layout:
 I made it for this month's "Use your stash challenge" at Birds of a Feather to use masks to create a patterned paper starting with white cardstock. I placed a few butterflies where I wanted them and misted over them, then after it was dry, removed the butterflies. I also misted a little bit of CS to be very saturated pink and then punched butterflies out of that. My daughter's eyes are almost the color of those tiny type stickers ;)
 I really like how Maggie Holmes used the different banner shapes and I've been wanting to stitch a banner for quite a while now - love this look!
The only thing I'm not happy about is that the trim that I wanted to use on the right side of the picture is not the paper I wanted. Apparently, I had two sheets of PP left out of my pack that I bought! I did end up with extras of two other sheets though...

I think this is GORGEOUS! Using the tiny type stickers that are close to her eye color was an awesome idea. The misting is awesome and I love your banner. You're going to make me figure out that stitching thing yet!!

P.S. I added your blog to my reader because I couldn't find a follower button.
