Buttons and butterflies...

That's what I had in mind for my layout for the " Scrap your Story" Blog Sketch challenge .

I saw a layout on pinterest  with butterflies which had been sewn on with bakers twine, made by Nicole Doiron .I thought it was such a pretty layout and the butterflies looked so lovely, I wanted to try the technique out myself.

I kept the sketch pretty much as it was designed , but squashed it all into my usual 8.5 x 11 layout.I loved the little embellishment clusters on the sketch and used the circle element as my photo. 

The papers were a mix that I had in my stash, but the washi tape and alpha letters were bought specially for the project from Papermaze..since I put the layout together at the April crop last Saturday. Its great having the shop open on crop days...for those essential bits and bobs!!

here's the sketch

Woo Hoo ....

April 2 years ago was HOT ! I'm finding it hard to remember with this prolonged coldness.....

I took the girls to visit their friends on a farm....they spent ALL day jumping around in the haystacks . I'm only glad I wasn't there to see them - the stack was high up in the barn and looked scarily unstable to me ! Anyhow they all the best fun.

I used the current sketch #30 from the blog  sketch-n-scrap  
and only altered it slightly to use 3 photos instead of 4. 

I used Jillibean soup paper and hexagon stickers, American crafts Eric Thickers, Studio calico zig zag paper, and some washi tapes swapped with my scrappy friend Sadie
I used my poor neglected Crop-o-dile to punch the little holes down the sides.

Here's the sketch

This challenge is open till 30th April.
