This month I wanted to keep things simple as I find when you have something like this it is already busy due to the multiple boxes. I used various pages from the Chantilly Paper Packet and the Chantilly Complements Dimensional Elements. I jazzed things up a bit using liquid glass when I just wanted a bit of shine, and Glitz Stardust Glitter Gel for Sparkle.

This is the completed project, you will see in the upper left hand corner I did not insert a picture. I just love this one paper style and decided to use the Chantilly Dimensional elements to emphasize it. I popped them up with half inch glue dots.

 One of my other passions is gardening, so I thought this was the perfect venue to show off two of my favourite past-times. I also added a shot of my daughters puppy at the time because was the last time he was small enough to fit under anything.

 We had a lot of Monarch Butterflies last year, and that was the first time since I had moved to Manitoba that we had so many in our neighbourhood.

 The Glitz Glitter Gel just adds a nice sparkle to the dimensional elements.I used the Liquid Glass in the centre of each flower in the border accent on the left side. It made the pink centres show up brighter.
