Butterfly kisses

I love that song Butterfly Kisses by Bob Carlisle - it makes me cry every time I hear that daddy singing about his little girl. You never realize how fast kiddos grow until you have them yourself.
My layout for Practical Scrappers this week features a picture that I know one day far too soon I'll look back on and automatically think of that song. It also features our challenge this week - white-core or color-core cardstock. I featured the white-core cardstock in both tearing and sanding. For the butterflies, I used laid my white-core cardstock onto my stamp - these two in particular from Close To My Heart's Butterfly Wings stamp set, then I sanded the paper down to showcase the stamp in a whole new way.
This layout uses paper, stamps and cardstock from Close To My Heart; Making Memories flowers & bling brads; Colorbok bling swirl and EK Success glittery foam letters. I also used some Stampin' Up pop dots and a white gel pen.
