My Mind's Eye March Challenge

Ooooo I'm having so much fun with the My Mind's Eye-Miss Caroline range.
I loved the last layout I did with it, so for this one I decided to join in the March challenge 
on the My Mind's Eye blog which is a sketch challenge.

Here are some close-ups.
The woodgrain papers are fabulous, great texture and I added
Gesso, paint, rubb-ons and stamps to add even more texture!

The butterflies are punched out with a Martha Stewart Punch.

Most of the Embellishments I used are also MME, various brads, twine, buttons, tickets and diecuts.
the white doily was cut with a Cherry Lynne Designs metal die.

Some MME pins and a Charms Creation Luscious lollipop.

So this is the sketch I used. 

And here's the whole layout.
some pictures of my daughter and nephew messing 
about on the Ipad.

I had lots of fun creating this, thanks for stopping by. 
Cheers. :)


  1. Wow! Soooooooo gorgeous! And that twine bow is amazing! I don't even know what you did to it! It's not plaited is it? It looks like it has been spun around like Twirly Curl Barbie's hair. I really love this, Leonie!!!

  2. Hi again! Thanks so much for letting me know! I'll have to give it a bash!!! It would actually give the same result as a Twirly Curl Barbie thingy. LOL. I thought it was a bit of a long shot that you had the exact same Barbie with that accessory when you were little! LOL! Thanks again!!! :D
