Sprite Delight part deux

It has been a while since I've blogged. 
Too long, but I have been busy making schtuffs.

Today is the beginning of the new challenge at Aurora Wings.
The new theme is Sprite Delight Part II
When I first saw Mitzi's artwork years ago on Etsy
I fell madly in love with her sprites. 
This is one of my favorite Aurora Wings challenge themes.
I'm still chuggin' along on the wedding album I'm making for my Aunt and Uncle.
I'm hoping to have the entire album completed by their second Anniversary, 
this September. Good things are worth waiting for, right?

After using various inks, and distress sprays to achieve a sandy texture on
some kraft card stock, I began the layering of my 8" x 8" scrapbook page. 

I began by coloring up this gorgeous little 
I thought he was perfect for a tropical beach themed wedding.
Just the right pop of color to set off the image against the 
washed out beach colored page.

I also thought it was a good idea to add some bling and fleurs 
that wouldn't compete with the little Sprite, but compliment it. 

More fleurs, die cuts, gumdrops, half pearls, and pearl sprays
to finish it off. I love the look of the frantage on the leaf die cuts. 

And here we are at the completed scrapbook page, once again.
I like to see the completed piece after all of the details have been
accounted for . I still have about 18 more pages to go before this
album is complete, but I am having a good time making sure each
page is perfect, and a good representation of their love. 
They are two very special people, and I want this book to reflect that.

Be sure to drop by the Aurora Wings challenge blog to see all of the
incredible inspiration pieces, and meet our newest DT member, too! 
Thanks for stopping by today.
