It's a well known fact - I love bright colors and I LOVE BoBunny's Sunkissed collection. A Cherry On Top challenged members to create a layout in Citrus colors for July - and reaching for Sunkissed was pretty obvious to me. I have loved these photos of our son for a long time, and happily scrapped them for the challenge. Many of you, who read my blog regularly, may know that we raise Monarch butterflies each summer. These photos are from perhaps three-four years ago. Kyle was trying to catch the butterfly in our living room so it could be released, but it kept eluding his grasp. Suddenly it landed on top of his head! We opened the door to the outside, and told him to walk slowly towards the door and out. That's how we released this particular Monarch that day, and of course I captured some photos first.
You might also note in this shot that the clouds have been sprinkled with a little "stardust". I had the Duncan iridescent paint out for elsewhere, and decided my clouds needed sparkle, too.
The cardstock stickers are another favorite for giving a slight mat, and raising off the page -especially the word accents!
I created this layout in under an hour...the butterfly made with Quickutz was an extra from a previous project. The clouds are actually from scrap of the Skies paper from a previous project. I can't stand to waste paper I love or throw it away, so I managed to squeak several partial clouds from my scraps and tuck them in - so you would never know they were from scraps if I had not told you my secret. Waste not - want not! Especially when it comes to BoBunny!
A belated add in - this layout was chosen as Layout of the Week at ACOT on July 25th - woo hoo!!
