2010 Spring Break Memphis



I didn't discover this great challenge site until this week! So, I whipped up this layout in a hurry.  It is for the XOXO challenge blog whose  April sponsor is Snobby Walrus.  I scraplifted Robin Gibson's Butterfly!  This was so much fun!

You'll have to forgive the poor photography on this! I'm still working on getting a good, straight picture. I had crumbled the paper on this one and didn't straighten it back out before taking the picture!

I used a Cuttlebug folder for the edges of the layout and the picture's background paper (which I painted with Adirondack copper paint). I made my own shimmery mists (one yellowish gold and the other a deep pink) which I spritzed on the background paper and the flower.  The flower is a similar style to Robins, but I put a shimmery brad in the middle. This was so fun and quick!!
