Butterfly Kisses layout

Good Morning, ahhh it's Monday! Had a long night last night I hope your Monday is better than mine was. I have a layout I did for the sketchathon challenge sketch #25 and the twist was to add a large title to it:
This is my little great granddaughter Emily, 3 weeks old in these pictures. Her parents took her to the butterfly gardens I guess near their place in South Dakota. This is the sketch:

I kept to the base of the sketch pretty well. the left side has the butterfly transparency that was in my counterfeit kit, thought it worked out well for the theme. Also on another Purple/Scallops challenge #2, so the purple of her butterfly wings fit that theme very well and I brought in the purple background designer pattern paper, the purple hearts paper, purple vellum punched with a recollections punch and added the purple ribbon to cover up the tape.
I shifted the journaling strips so I could have the 2 pictures of her in the wings. I have more pictures to this outing and will do another page to it later this week. The rhinestone butterfly was from last month's kit.
The title block came from a swap a few years back, it's from the cricut imagine and the lady that did it really did a fantastic job on dressing it up. This past week I went through my swap cuts and put a few that I plan to use aside and this one was one of them.
 The journaling strips I moved up to the right hand side of the layout, seemed to help with the empty space there. I used my Dymo labler for the strips  in the blue.
I tacked down the transparency at each corner with the brad/flower combo from Queen & Comp. Sassy Sequins. Overall I really like the way it turned out. So far all the sketches have been lost of fun to use. This is the last week of the sketchathon so got to get in gear and get er done!
Thanks for stopping by and checking things out :) Have a fantastic day!
