Summer Flies...

Sorry it's been SO long since I shared anything (if anyone noticed ;), but my pre-order showed up just before our camping trip, and shortly after we got home, we had a flood in the basement and two cases of Chicken Pox (one after the other of course... both at once would have been too easy, lol!).

Anyway, after a month or so off, it always takes a bit to get back in the groove, but I think I managed to jump right in without making a mess of things...

I used the new Pretty Print embossing folder on the Gumball Green Co'redinations. Since the folder is landscape, I had to run it through twice to cover the portrait layout, but it worked well. The white layer is the waffle paper, embossed with the Honeycomb folder, shiny side up for a really cool look. (Not so visible in the photo though). I am so happy with all the different butterflies we have to choose from now, between the Papillon Potpourri and the Best of Butterflies sets! I never tire of butterflies...

Challenges I used:

Craft Project Central - (see sketch below)
Use It Tuesday - Un-Inked Stamps (smallest butterfly, and the stamps on the postage stamp), Other hoarded items are the waffle paper and the SAB ribbon.
SUO Challenges - Happy Birthday
Stampin Royalty - (see inspiration photo below)
Ribbon Carousel - Summertime Fun
Pile It On - No Designer Paper
