Summer Layout to Share

Quick post today as I still have my MIL and BIL here visiting, and I don't want to neglect them too much.  I've been working on this layout for a while, just playing with the finishing touches and finally finished it last night.  I'm quite pleased with it!  I used some colours that I normally wouldn't choose for this photo, but I just felt like experimenting.  I started off with a new Dylusions mask and some Fresh Lime Dylusions spray to do the border, then just layered various papers until I got the effect I wanted.  The papers are from Studio Calico, Echo Park, MME and Simple Stories.  There's a floral border there from Sassafrass Lass, and another B&W polka dot one from Amy Tangerine that I cut into little flags.  The flowers are made with the ever trusty Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die, and I was surprised to see how easily this die cuts felt!  Fun, never tried that before!
There's some Kaiser rhinestones there, and an Echo Park sticker, some cool buttons from my stash, and look here:
See that butterfly pin?  That's one I won from Channa, and it's just beautiful!!!  I have four more, and I'm torn between wanting to use them all up or just hoarding them forever!  Here's the sketch I used from Creative Scrappers:
I'm really loving their sketches these days, but once again, I missed the deadline.  Huh.  I'm seeing a pattern here...

Oh, I should write out the journaling, because I doubt if you can see it.  It says:  "You two look so peaceful here, sitting by the Nechako River in the sun.  The relaxed mood was broken abruptly about two minutes later, when Brenna decided to pitch herself face first into the water!"  Yep, you can just imagine her surprise and tears, it was hilarious!!!
