'White with a Pinch Of'

Hi there blog friends! I hope you are all well. I can't believe it's been so long since my last blog post!
I've spent this past weekend at The Scrapbook Store's Retreat and as per usual had an absolute blast! I did manage to get a few layouts done, in between all the chatting and laughing. :)
But, before I carry on for too much longer, I want to share the latest challenge at Scrap Africa with you.
The challenge is "White with a pinch of" and is about creating a project that is 90% white and 10% any other colours.
Here is my take on it.  I've used a photo of my friend's little girl and mainly added my colour in the form of butterflies.  Can you believe I fussy cut all of them?! :)
I then finished it off with a few flowers, a couple of words and my title, which I cut 3 times in coordinating paper using the Die-Versions 'Precious' die.
To avoid allocating too much 'space' to colour, I added a couple of stitched circles.

To see all the other DT members' gorgeous examples, take a look HERE.
You have until the end of November to link up your entries. Why not give it a go?
That's all for today.  I will be back soon with another layout to share. Hopefully I can change this 'blog drought' for a while!
Thank you so much for visiting! Have a wonderful week!
Until next time.
