Last Retreat Paper Reveal - Fancy Pants Memories Captured

Hey there,

Less than 10 hours to the HKMC Autumn retreat and I have one more paper line to show you. This one has actually been on sale already at the shop, but it's nice to do some sample layouts to showcase the papers.

It's also been a while since I entered one, so I am also submitting this layout for the My Creative Sketches September sketch challenge. Here is the original sketch.

 Watch The Birdie!
 We had a great time this summer in Isle of Wight and Miss C was such a pro at mini golf. She even got a hole-in-one on one of the holes! Chalkboard effect papers and embellishments are very popular right now and the black/white contrasts very well with any colour.
 I wanted a single punch of bright colour against the paler colours of all the other papers, so I added a small heart to add a visual focus. 
I got the cute little resin butterflies from a shop in Sham Shui Po, and the colours match this paper line perfectly.
The "Birdie!" was cut with my eClips. I remember I'd heard this phrase used in golf (meaning one under par) and it's also a saying by photographers to get kids to look at the camera. Pretty spot on title, really.

Products Used
Patterned papers from Fancy Pants Memories Captured collection
Cardstock in black, grey, blue and fuchsia by Bazzill Papers
Mini title letters from Jillibean Alphabeans
Resin butterflies and sequence sourced locally

Now, time for some sleep. Have a long day tomorrow at the retreat and can't wait to have lots of scrapbooking fun.
