Layout 2 from Kit - Mother and Daughter

This pretty pair are my youngest stepdaughter and her daughter.  I wasn't present when the photo was taken so I don't know the story.  I decided just to capture the moment as a obviously happy time.

This worked perfectly with the kit I shared last week in this video - Kit Layout 1.  Most of the colors are lavender, blue and greens.

When I was making this page, I'd gone upstairs without my laptop and that day my knee was hurting just a bit from a slight issue the night before.  The problem cleared up quickly but I didn't want to be going up and down the stairs a lot so I used a punch in place of the die cuts I was planning to do on the Silhouette and scribbled my sketch by hand for the video.  A better version of the sketch is shown below.

Two things that have been in my stash a looong time are the purple ribbon from the dollar store and the chipboard buckle that I think I bought about 2006 or so.  The buckle wasn't quite the right color but a little white paint fixed it up.

The punch is the 2 3/8" scallop punch from Stampin' Up! and the butterflies are EK Success that were freebies in an online order.  So I used a lot of stuff from my stash to go with the Bo Bunny Enchanted Garden 6x6 papers.

Watch at YouTube:

Here's the sketch:
