Precious Layout - Picture This! Blog Hop

Hello everyone! I'm excited to be a part of my first blog hop!

Welcome to the Lets Get Sketchy/Picture This “My One Word” Blog Hop. You should have come from Brenda's blog. If you have stumbled across this by chance and want to play along then you can head back to the Let's Get Sketchy site to start at the beginning and to start collecting your challenge words. These words should be bold on each DT member’s blog. My words are "to make".

The word I chose for my project is “PRECIOUS”. This picture is of my daughter, niece and 2nd cousin. We have so many girl babies joining our family but they won't stay small for long so I'm glad I got a picture of them together. The large butterflies are punched and I used a gold marker to draw on them. Then I folded the wings around a pencil to give them some shape. The smaller butterflies I traced from a die cut that didn't match so I could have a variety of sizes.
