Butterfly Wings

Welcome to our brand new Beary Sweet Challenge, I am first up again and absolutely thrilled to show you my layout of "Things with Wings." Two weeks ago, we had a "girls" trip to Las Vegas, Nevada (about 10 hours from where I live). My youngest sister and her family live there and so my other sister and I took our daughters, along with my mom, to visit for Spring Break. We had a fabulous time, soaking up some much needed sun by the pool and visiting some Vegas sights (I do have a picture of daughter with some Elvis impersonators-- I'll save that for another week!).

One of the highlights was lunch at Serendipity 3- a really fun restaurant near Caesar's Palace (check out our frozen hot chocolate, yum!)- and visiting the Bellagio Conservatory which was planted with tulips, poppies and even butterflies! These were the perfect pictures for my layout this week--

I had so much fun making this layout and using lots of fun new goodies from the store including Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden papers (absolutely gorgeous!) and charms.

Other great stuff I used includes seam binding-- new for me but oh so much fun! I spritzed with water and crinkled it up then sprayed with Pearl Gimmer Mist and adhered to my layout with glue lines. Seam binding in many colors will be in stock soon so check the store website! I also used lace and some handmade crocheted flowers-- I must still be on that vintage kick that seems to be going on around here!

Supplies used:
Bazzill Cardstock
Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden paper collection
Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden charms
Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist- Pearl
Colorbox Fluid Chalk- Chestnut Roan
Seam Binding
Crocheted flowers
Assorted brads
JoLee's butterfly stickers
Assorted alphabet stickers

Thanks for looking and have a lovely weekend! Take some time to create your own project that has "Things with Wings" and enter it in our challenge for a chance to win a voucher to The Beary Scrap.

Jamie this is GORGEOUS! So many fabulous details to drool over. I love how you've done the seam binding - so cool! I didn't know the Bellagio had a butterfly garden. I get the itch to go to Vegas every couple of years and I've been thinking about it lately. Now I have something new to do! Thanks!
