Imagine Two Page LO -- Imagine That Blog Hop

Welcome to GabyCreates
and to the
Imagine That Blog Hop
hosted by Sandra 

This is a fun hop where we got to play with our Imagine!
Hopefully you just arrived from visiting Mistyrose, if not, and wish to participate, start with Sandra

I created this two page layout of my grand daughters at the age of 1 (one year old).

Mis Dos Princesas = My Two Princesses
I used the layout design and flipped it in order to create a two page layout.
I stitched around the inside part of the layout and across one of the already printed strips. I additionally used fancy leaves stitching on the bottom right side and the left inside side where the pictures are located.

I used a fiskars punch to punch the 3D butterflies on either side.
For all the butterflies already on the design, I added GlossyAccents and glass beads.
Here you can see how when I flipped the layout, the circle's words did not flip--I decided to leave it like that rather than cut it our or adhere another item/embellishment on top (so that you can see).
Here you get a better look at the GlossyAccents and the beads on the butterflies; and the fancy stitching.
I used an Xacto knife to cut out the openings for the pictures rather than place them on top.
I finished by adding buttons to the flowers with some thread.

I would like to mention that My Title was created by printing on a transparency sheet using MSWord and Storybook Font, a technique I came across on Linda Kaiser's Blog The Paper Boutique - I love visiting her blog! she always comes up with the most ingenious ideas!  Go check her tutorial on how to create your own Rub-ons!!  (I just wished I had printed mine in brown ink, oh well, next time!)

Thanks for Visiting! and leaving comments!!
I will choose one person randomly and that person will receive 5 cuts on the Imagine, their choice!
(as long as I have that particular cartridge)

Time to go Visit LAUREN
