Little Lady(bug) Layout

Hi, everyone!
Happy Easter, to those that celebrate! For those of you that do not, well......Happy Sunday! :)
We had a quiet day at my house, as hubby is sleeping days, still, resting up for midnight shifts this week. It gave me plenty of time to finish up a scrapbook page I'e been dabbling at over the week.
I have to apologize for the somewhat fuzzy, dark pics on this: my camera battery was near dead, and I was too impatient to wait until tomorrow to post. Bear with me - better page pics for future layouts, I promise! :)

You'll notice, I actually ave pictures added to this one! :) This is my beautiful sister, and my super adorable niece (well....I think so, but I may be biased! lol!). You may remember me mentioning a recent challenge win at Designs on Cloud 9......well, the adorable little ladybug paper-piecings on this page are from there. So CUTE!
I made my own title using SCAL and some Sizzlits dies. I also used a ton of flower punches on this layout, as you can see. The pretty leaf flourishes are Cheery Lynn Designs dies. 
Here are some additional views that offer a little better look at some of the details:

I inked edges of all my pieces before glueing, and I used pop dots on the ladybugs for some extra dimension. I used my white gel pen for adding details, as well as a micro-tip pen for my additional eye work. A few heart-shaped rhinestones on each of the antennae gave each bug some sparkle. My papers....well, they're a combination of designers, and I'm sorry I can't tell you for certain which ones: I am trying to keep raiding my extensive stash to work on putting some dents in my inventory! :) It's amazing how fast paper collects! lol!

Thanks so much for flying by today! I hope you enjoy what you see here!
