To Catch A Butterfly

 It's been an interesting week around here. I have been diligently working on my Mother's Day scrapbook and I have made good progress over the last several days.  Only two more pages to go, and the first of those is about a third complete already!  WooHoo!  How did I do it?   Well I have pretty much lived in this room for the past week.  But it's been worth it because I created with I believe is my best layout ever.  It's so gorgeous I can't stop looking at it.  I've walked by it several times a day since I finished it and it instantly brings a smile to my face.  The photos are from a trip to the Tennessee Aquarium where my oldest son had the wonderful experience of holding a butterfly in his hand for the first time.  Absolutely precious.  And without further ado - here it is!

One of my favorite new apps is the Sketches 2 Scrap app for the IPhone.  I can't remember where I heard about it, but I adore this app.  Great sketches, wonderful designs that aren't hard to follow or overly embellished.  I can't remember which sketch it was on, but I saw one of these ribbon flowers and immediately fell in love.  I knew I could make one myself and I was right - it is so simple!  Of course now that I'm in love there will be many more of these in projects to come. 


Thanks for stopping by!!


  1. That's a stunning layout! I love the inclusion of the tickets. TFS!

  2. Wow, I love the details like the pink butterfly outline border on the photos. I really think your eye for detail would showcase Oliver's finer qualities ;-). I just wish I could hear about Jake holding a butterfly for the first time instead of Kirby. Oh well, atleast your scrapbook shows the truly great moments the boys have.
