Kiss the Frog-New Websters 'Life's Portrait' Layout

I was the lucky winner of some beautiful Webster's pp!! I absolutely LOVE LOVE this line. It's called "Life's Portrait" and it is very soft, pretty, and a great quality paper. I did this LO for Alda's Die Cut Challenge at Pages in Time. The challenge was to use your die cut machine to make at least 3 die cuts..such as flowers, picket fence, bird, etc..I made the fence, flowers, and leaves. I printed out the photo in both a 5x7 and 4x6 to get the double effect. Saw this on Such A Pretty Mess Blog (Gabrielle Pollacco).

I actually had to hand cut the picket fence since I have no cartridge with one that still works for the challenge. I used the "George" Cricut Cartridge to do the flowers. I inked the Tattered Angels Butterfly Glimmer Chip with Wild Honey and edged it with Vintage Photo inks and then covered it in Crackle Accents. I also used Glossy Accents on the butterfly printed on the pp to make it pop. The bird is cut from stash pp I had.

The index tab is holding a small journal card telling the story about my dd kissing the frog to find her prince. Here are just a few more close ups. I used Tattered Angles SWAK Glimmer Mist for the lettering.
