September Challenge at More Than Words

Don't you just love the first day of the month? So many exciting challenges are revealed. And of course, my fave is More Than Words!

Due to being away on holidays, I've missed some of the challenges, both literally and figuratively. I'm so excited to back participating again now.

Here's what I made for the September challenge:

In case you haven't seen it yet, here's the challenge board:

I've chosen to use the Art recipe. I've added:
  1. Die cut butterflies
  2. A small badge that I made myself
  3. Heaps of flowers
  4. A healthy dose of mist forms the base of the layout although I've also added plenty of water mist to my pigment powders background
I don't take many selfies but I remembered to take this one at an old fort on the top of a mountain on a small Greek island. It was so hot but I was having such a 'delightful' time! I was supposed to be showing the beautiful sea way below me in the background but I didn't quite line the camera up right! Never mind, its the memory that counts.

I tucked my little hand-made badge in among my chippie flowers.

I love these butterfly die-cuts. They're a fave of mine.

I sure hope you can join in the challenge this month. The prizes are awesome!

Happy scrappin'!
