Thankful For This Ordinary Day - a Daily Stories Layout by Leslie Ashe

hi everyone!

I'm back today to share a layout I did using the beautiful line
Daily Stories by Teresa Collins.

For my layout I did a BUNCH of fussy cutting, punched LOTS of
butterflies & added a TON of embellishments for this final outcome:

I'll admit, this one took me a little bit to do, as I was cutting along the scallops
(trying to be as perfect as I could...ha!), then distressing said edges with a
distressing tool , as well as punching several butterflies as a border to go with
the Daily Stories butterflies :D
My favorite part about this layout is adding the fun things to the butterflies.
As you see, I added sequins, wooden letters, buttons, brads...

Plus I did some fussy cutting around a couple of the word bubbles
for part of my journaling about my sweet daughter

and added banners, word stickers, gems, titles from the ephemera pack, chipboard,
wooden butterflies, wooden words, washi tape...
what's funny - this layout was SO easy to make! Just add layers upon layers,
size your photo to 5x7, print in Black & White, add layers on top of it and bam...
you have a Daily Stories creation too!

I had a BLAST with this layout. I hope you have fun using Daily Stories too!

Have a GREAT day!
