New Memories Layout

Hi there, unfortunately another weekend nearly over, I love weekends because it's my scrapbooking time. Today I created this page inspired by the Sketchabilities Sketch #123 and also the theme from this months 7 Dots Studio Inspiration Circle of New Beginnings.
A new beginning for us was when we moved from New Zealand to Australia in 2011. It was a scary time for us as we had lived in Christchurch NZ and had just been through all the earthquakes so we decided we might get better job opportunities in Australia so we packed up and moved to start our new life. This photo was taken in the first week we were here, we went to the zoo and our daughter feed a kangaroo to the first time.
 I used some gorgeous 7 Dots Studios Nature Walk papers, plus I cut pieces out of some Prima and Marion Smith Design Papers to add some pink accents to complement the brown of the Nature Walk papers. I put some modeling paste thru stencils on the background, added colour with sprays and then randomly stamped abit. For the chipboard butterflies I mixed a Lindy's Stamp Gang Color Shot with Finnabair Art Basics 3D Gloss Gel, then I sprinkled the with the Finnabair Art Ingredients Light Pink Art Sugar. The oval chipboard frame I coloured with a Faber Castel Gelato then heat embossed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Embossing Powder

Here's my close ups
