you've got a friend in me layout!

**this is my 2nd post of the day! to see my Lawn Fawnatics Challenge card, scroll down or click here!**

hello and happy monday!
today i'm just popping in to share a layout I created for the Altenew July Scrapbook Sketch challenge! I've had the Reflections Kit for a while, but I've just been hoarding it! it's SOOOOOO pretty, I didn't want to 'ruin' it!! ha ha!
but luckily I was just TOO inspired not to finally start playing with it! 

here's the sketch:

so fun!
and here's my layout:

what do you think?
I really LOVE that photo of my littlest Mann waiting for big brother to get off the bus from school! and he brought his large Storm Trooper stuffed animal (that he calls Storm Troopy) along for the wait! ACK! all the feels!

I used the letter stickers in the kit, mixed with some small alphas from the stash for the title! just too perfect with the toy and the boy, huh!? ha!
I altered those AMAZING origami wood veneer butterflies by patingin them with acrylic paints and then splattering some paint on top! love it!!

lots of those INCREDIBLE wood buttons and stickers were used, too! I stitched on the stitckers, cardstock embellishments and paper directly to the 12x12 photo! 

so that's it! 
I am SOOOO excited I finally convinced myself to get the kit used up! and now I can't wait to make even more layouts with it - starting with the paper!!! swoon, the paper!


thank you SO much for taking the time to comment! just like that, you made my day! :D
