May was national scrap booking month and I did make it a point to scrapbook. I just didn't get pictures of the pages posted in May. This page was inspired by a layout I saw in one of my many many scrapping magazines. I changed it quite a bit, but kept the circle on the left. LOL Funny how an inspiration morphs! These pictures are of my daughter Sarah on her birthday almost a year ago! It seems like only last week....this year has gone by amazingly fast. I can't even wrap my brain around it!
I cut the big circle with the new Circle Scissor from Stampin' Up!. This isn't the old scissor...this one is new and improved and SO easy to use! The blade goes either way, a real improvement from the one we carried years ago. It is super easy to make circles of all sizes with it. I use the butterfly die to make the butterflies and also to make the soft background butterflies.
You can barely see them here, but I used the negative left from when I cut out the butterfly and then sponged inside it with apricot ink to make soft prints in the background. The Wings on Sarah are just a butterfly folded and adhered right to the picture. Sarah absolutely loves the look of this picture. What 11 year old girl wouldn't love to have wings?
