I haven't been scrapbooking for a while, since stamping and cardmaking took over my will and reason to live, not to mention my finances! However, I wanted to start to do something about the bazillions of photos I take, and these challenges offer the perfect inspiration. Here is a look at the gorgeous inspiration for January White with a Twist:
Sharon and Kylie!) Most of the girls elected to have their faces painted as butterflies and so I thought that was a pretty good theme to follow for this layout.
I love this pretty patterned stripey, shimmery paper - I bought about ten sheets of it years ago, and now I'm down to my last three (sob!). I thought it would go nicely with this page as it has the green and pink stripes in it. I punched out butterflies from the patterned paper, as well as from Melon Mambo cardstock (Stampin' Up!) using the 'Elegant Butterfly' and 'Bitty Butterfly' punches from Stampin' Up! Using stamps from the 'Papillon Potpourri' stamp set (Stampin' Up!), I stamped and heat embossed with white the two different size flower butterfly images on American Craft Weave cardstock in 'Cricket' and also punched them out. I then used glue dots to stick down all the butterflies.
A list was created of all the fun things the girls got up to on the day by way of journalling. For finishing touches I put a handful of Annabelle Stamps 'Sprinkles' down the right hand side; I doodled a border with my Copic Multiliners and added a bow with some awesome ribbon I had that just happened to be pink and green.
I've had so much fun creating this page! Thanks to Scrapping Outback for providing such fun inspiration!
