Officially my first LO

Scroll down for my giveaway

So this is my very first LO ever!!!  I have stayed away from making LO for long because I used to think they were a lot of work..and complicated ,but trust me I found making a LO quite ok. There is so much you can do on LO and you don't have to be 100% neat..a minor mistake here or there doesn't show as much as it shows on a card perhaps.I made this LO for the challenge at Lulupu.The DT have provided very nice tutes on how to get going for your LOs.
.Feb was my fav month of this year because I had gone to my hometown to meet my relatives.. all of my  cousins,aunts and uncles had gotten together to meet my daughter. The LO has a picture of one of my cousins liftin my daughter high up in the air...the weather was great as it was just the beginning of spring and we had this get-together at my aunt's farmhouse so that's why the LO has so many flowers and butterflies.
Coming to the details..I have used every possible method known to me for making my own embellies from PPs. So 95% of the embellies are handmade..all the flowers are handmade from Prima Zephyr collection using techniques I learnt from various blogs..The butterflies and flourish  and the tiny birds above the photo are embossed and fussy cut.I  used some die cuts.some punched embellies too. The two medallions/rossettes were handmade without a scoreboard and were really painfully difficult to make.The letters are hand drawn , fussy cut and then embossed them with clear embossing powder to give a faux epoxy look.I have left some space below and near the photo for journaling which I will do later.The picket fence is made from rolls of paper.Hope you like my attempt.
