I used the RSVP collection from Basic Grey, including the sticker sheets.
The butterflies were cut using this pretty Spellbinders die set:
The sparkly leaves were created with Hampton Art green glitter and new Designer Shapes from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.
This layout is actually being featured on the Crafty Power blog, and you can click HERE to see how I made these pretty glitter leaves.
My layout doesn't really look much like September, does it? That is because I went to Phoenix, Arizona, for 5 days with my dear friend, Michelle Marks, a couple weeks ago.
We visited the beautiful Desert Botanical Gardens and were delighted to walk around and see so many incredible desert landscapes and vegetation. This is where I took the photos of the cactus flowers on my layout.
I never knew that cactus could be so pretty!
Our other memorable part of this trip was visiting the Grand Canyon. This was Michelle's first time here and my second.
Words cannot describe the breathtaking panorama of this wonder of the world.
Along with lots of shopping and sunshine, this was a fantastic, relaxing getaway.
I definitely needed some down time with the two Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnivals taking place in September too.

I taught a "Double the Fun" layout class in both Edmonton and Calgary and had a great time meeting lots of wonderful scrappers.
