A few weeks ago, we were invited to a Hari Raya open house do by one of our neighbours. As usual whenever we attend these things, hubby and I would take turns looking after Nadiah and eating. When it was my time to eat, I saw hubby taking her out into the garden and in order to prevent her from running around, he sat her down on a big rock and kneeled down in front of her. They had their heads together looking at something or rather and I thought it was the sweetest thing I have ever seen.

Of course, being the avid scrapper mommy that I am, I had my camera with me and quickly snapped some pictures. Hubby was actually showing Nadiah some Ixora flowers that was next to her and how you can pull out the stigma and suck out the sweet "honey" (nectar). That certainly keep her busy for some time.. *wink*

Anyway, today I decided to scrap that moment and I used the sketch from Creative Scrappers #123. Here's the sketch:

And here's my layout:

Beautiful Prima flowers and butterflies. Awww... aren't they just lovely? Especially that lilac flower, which incidentally, I also used Fancy Pants Designs papers from their Lilac House collection.

Painted some crackle paint on the chipboard swirl just to give some texture and character. And I used a paper cup, top and bottom, to print some circles with acrylic paint on the paper.

Materials used:
Patterned papers: Fancy Pants Designs. Journaling card: Fancy Pants Designs. Chipboard swirl: Maya Road. Flowers and butterflies: Prima Marketing. Chipboard alphas: American Crafts. Chipboard card 'Father': part of RAK from Mich. Others: Tim Holtz Crackle Paint (Aged Mahogany), Tim Holtz distress inks (Vintage Photo, Wild Honey), Alpha Acrylic paints.
