{ Memories - final challenge project }

I don't have a card to share until next week with some awesome sneak peeks from July CupCards {to go} kit...you will love it...it is sweet. There are sneaks on the blog and chances to win prizes!!! Go check it out.

I have been participating in a month long challenge at My Scrapbook Nook. I was able to complete 13 layouts and several cards. One of the layouts was picked up the other day for publication by Scrapbook Trends Magazine. It's been a long time since I had a layout picked up. This is the final project for my competition at My Scrapbook Nook. I made it to the top ten last week. The challenge was to create a Masterpiece! No, "make a layout that speaks of YOU and your style. Make something interesting or beautiful. Make something that says something about you, about your life, about whatever YOU want to say." So I did. The idea came right away and I sketched this (see the end of the post for my sketch). Top of the page is cut out and the paper curled down and distressed. The butterflies are attached with the floss and tied to pins. The original plan was to hang clouds from the top in the empty space, but when I started working these butterflies by Heidi Swapp were sitting on my desk and this idea came to mind. I applied rub-ons to the butterflies. I had a hard time choosing photos, I have so many. These are from different points in my life that take me back to special memories. Journaling is a poem that I love. I used Jenni Bowlin and October Afternoon paper. I love this journaling stamp from Journaling II stamp set by Impression Obsession. The crochet flower that my mom made was a perfect touch. Sorry about the bad scan, this is all I have. The supply list is on the next page written with a sharpie and it shows through. Have a great weekend!
