Capture the Moment - April Hip Kit

Hi there, I am trying to use up my April Hip Kit.  My June kit has been stuck at Customs for the past two frustrating.  Last Sunday we were on our way out when Kobus Jr, Lache and the children came around on the corner on roller blades.  We ended up sitting there on the curb for an improptu "kuier".  I took some photos with my iPhone.

 Needless to say Bella was the Belle of the Ball.

 Father and son.

 Oupa and grandson :)

 Leane and Bella.

We ended up going back inside for coffee.

Here is the page of Leane and Bella.
Supply list:  Patterned papers:  Elle's Studio; Amy Tangerine:  Cardstock:  American Craft; Wood Veneer (you & me):  Prima; Flowers: Petaloo; Enamel dots: My Minds Eye; Clear stickers: Shimelle; Butterflies: Maggie Holmes Bloom;  Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink; Stencil: Prima; Other: Silhouette Studio.

I inked onto my background through a Prima Stencil.  Love the controlled mixed media.

 I cut the butterflies from a Maggie Holmes Bloom paper.

 I love that I could add the green onto the layout using ink without it being messy.

The leaves were cut with the Silhouette Cameo.

Thank you for visiting my blog today ♥♥
