"Once in a Lifetime" 12x12 Scrapbook Layout & Tutorial

Hi everyone!

Today, I have another very special project to share with you. This picture of my parents was taken at their 42nd wedding anniversary lunch this past January. My parents are the cutest ever! After all these years, they are still so very much in love. I just had to create something with this ah-MAZING picture they took together on their anniversary. ❤

The paper collection I'm using is Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime. I incorporated several items from Karla's store to accent my layout. All the products will be listed below, but first some pictures...

Going wild crazy with the layers... LOL!

The loopy trim is one of my favorites... it's perfect for layering or even lining an altered box or pages on a mini album!

I love accenting my projects with the pearl sprays to add dimension and an additional accent/layer...

The Sheer butterflies are another favorite of mine.... I added one to the edge of the layout, sort of in a "strategic" position to cover where I cut off the trim. LOL! ❤

I did a lot of fussy cutting with the design paper... lots of layering and distressing... super fun!

I LOVE Karla's large 3D clear Crystal Butterflykisses flowers. They are so beautiful and capture the natural light so well, bringing in this radiant glow to the layout...

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to give Karla a visit over at her STORE and show some love! ❤

hugs! ❤
