Playtime Butterflies

Here is one of the layouts I made at our retreat in Debden last weekend.

The triplets at play in the park. This layout was designed using the Cricut Craft Room programme. I picked the butterfly shadow from the Designer's Calendar cartridge. I repeated the image across the page then copied the rows so they were exactly where I wanted them. Then cut them from White Bazzill. This was trimmed down to leave a narrow border of the green Bazzill underneath. I used lots of pretty scraps of Doodlebug Designs Inc. papers and positioned them on the lime card stock so each one would show through a butterfly aperture.

The white was layered up with a lot of 3D foam tape. Some of the cut outs butterflies were inked and curved and added to the layout, just sticking them down by the bodies. Each one has two layers, and flower stamen to make antenna. I made a trail of flat backed pink gems between the butterflies. The ribbon was trailed loosely across the bottom of the page just sticking it down in a few places. and pegged to the photo.

The title was an old Making Memories rub-on which I have had for years.

This was inspired by a beautiful Studio Calico layout I saw on by Wilna Furstenburg.
Thanks for looking.
