Mellow Yelllow

Hello there :)
I hope you are having a lovely weekend so far?
Here is another one of the layouts that I made at our retreat last weekend. Once again it is heavily inspired by the wonderful work of Gabrielle Pollaco
Chloe is absolutely obsessed with the colour yellow....she just ADORES it! So I thought I should really make a layout for her and her fave colour.
I de-saturated the photo to remove all the colour except for the yellow squishy ball. I have used a mix of bits and bobs paper wise, some is October Afternoon, some Fancy Pants and not sure what the other was as the tab had already been removed.

I made the large ring by cutting around the edge of the circle with a Martha Stewart Corner punch and then added crystals, flowers and punched out leaves and then popped a length of beaded lace along the bottom ( yellow of course!). On the top corner I used half a filigree square that I had and popped it under some blossoms.
The little alpha stickers are My Little Shoebox and the word YELLOW is using AC Thickers. The beautiful yellow butterfly is by Prima and was part of a lovely prize that I won from Tracie Hudson ( Thanks again Tracie)

I printed the butterfly off on the laptop and then Stickled it and popped its wings up on foam pads for a little more dimension.

I have to say I REALLY enjoyed making this page and I am really pleased with the end result....and more to the is Chloe :)
