Winter Crop Smash book page

I have another Smash book page to share with you.
I am on a roll.
My goal was to do a page a month….look at me, my second one ;)

I started this page at the Crop I put on the other Saturday.
I actually took these photos that same day (as I am in the photo, someone else actually took them ;)
I used my new Instax, instant camera my daughters bought me for Christmas :)
It is a fun little camera, I had an instant camera when I was a young girl and loved it :)

Let us take a closer look to this page.
Here are the cute photos :)
I popped them up with foam dots.
At the bottom of the layout I needed to cover up the manufacturers information.
I didn't realize when I did my first page (which is the back of this page), that this wasn't where the books pages actually started, lol.
So I used some pattern paper to make a pocket to cover it up, I then added a journal tag and popped it inside the pocket with my journaling on it.

I had fun making this little cluster :)
I used a journal card and added a overlay on top of it.
I added some washi tape, a flag that I cut out of the same paper as the pocket and lastly stapled this cute birch bark butterfly on top of it all.

This butterfly was given to me by Verna (she is in the bright pink shirt). She punched it out with a butterfly punch out of a thin layer of birch bark that was picked up on some trail…or in someone's back yard ;)
Pretty cool eh?

Using the same pattern paper as I did for the pocket, I cut out this banner.
I then adhered it to some twine and popped each banner up on a foam dot.

I sprayed this wood piece with some glimmer mist to better match the colour of the layout.
Orange would be one of the last colours I would use in a layout, but the page facing this one has pretty orange, I guess they are more of a peach colour, flowers on it.
I like the facing page, so wanted this one to blend nicely with that paper.

Here is a closer look at the overlay on the journal card.
"Enjoy This" is on the overlay.

One last look at the finished page :)
As you can see, I have added the journaling to the journal card.
I just started a new novel and I have a feeling it may be a late night for me ;)
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a Creative Sunday :)
