Today I have a layout for you! YAY! I really am a scrapbooker first then a card maker - but I really like the immediate satisfaction of finishing a card! I go through spurts of mojo - for awhile it's cards , then layouts, then jewelry I am all over the place! Maybe I have crafty ADD?!?!
I began this layout at CKC in the class my friend Cheri and I took together. The instructor was supposed to be the incredible Maren Benadict but due to scheduling conflicts and really bad luck on my part - it wasn't :( It was still a pretty cool class though! I am now in LOVE with Core'dnations cardstock! I learned I really love my big shot! So we made this layout which was very simple but has quite a bit of visual interest thanks to the embossed cardstock that we sanded. I also inked everything. We also made two cards. When I got home I tried to figure out what I could scrap with a butterfly?!?!? I have two boys remember? Then I thought about our amazing butterfly bush! I so love it! My mom is even jealous of it! It will be one of the (few) things I will REALLY miss about this house! So I had the boys pose in front of it snapped some photos and turned them black and white so they wouldn't clash horribly!
Here is a close up of the layered butterfly and the sanded Core'dnations paper.
Thanks for looking!
Today I am thankful to have a nice warm home even though there are MANY MANY things about it that frustrate the heck out of me! I am thankful to have a roof over my head and a place to lay my head at night.
