Take A Bow

The photo for this layout reminded me of Madonna's song from some years back titled 'Take A Bow', hence the title for the layout! The photo is of my older DD taken when she was still in kindergarten, and it remains one of my many favourite photos of her.

I used papers and chipboard embellishment from Basic Grey's Ambrosia Collection for this layout, which is inspired by a sketch by Anna Bowkis, the founder of Pencil Lines. I love how the Basic Grey papers lend themselves so well to cut-outs!

For the butterfly, I stickled the Basic Grey chipboard butterfly, and then layered another butterfly cut out from their Winsome paper and also stickled, on top of it.

The flower acts as a kind of "pocket" for the two journaling cards, which can be pulled out and read.
