Finally Time To Scrap

I am so happy life finally worked out to allow me some scrappy time.  With that time I was inspired by several challenges.  First, I loved the color challenge at Color Me Scrappy.  Added to the color combo I had to use a butterfly and 2 of the same photo (a first for me).  When I first saw these colors I didn't think I'd be able to find anything to work with it but then ran across this darling photo of me a little over a year old. 
Here is what I created, using some October Afternoon stash.  I accepted a challenge at My Scraps & More to find a kit and use it up.  I should be doing this every month.  I also was inspired by Audrey Yeager as I'm taking a fun class from her so this layout is very inspired by her and it's a sketch from her.  I also chose to be a part of this week's challenge at Inspiration Elevator.  I'm not sure who I was supposed to partner with but I chose to be inspired by Audrey, which is an easy thing as I love her style.  I chose to use her layering style, the distressed edges, the sewing and splattering.  Oh...and she uses the negative space a lot so I created the word "sweet" inspired by her.  Thanks for stopping by!
