Months ago I was asked to contribute to a special issue for CK called Budget-Friendly scrapbooking. I think CK has a lot to offer the crafting community, so of course I said YES! I'd be crazy not to! :)
My assignment was to use multiple rubons on a layout. I immediately dashed to my stash of butterflies in various colors, from Studio Calico, and went to work on a two page layout.
The theme was literal. A couple years ago when we went to visit my sister in Seattle, we went to the Pacific Science Center which has a great butterfly exhibit. You get to be in with the butterflies, and there are several different kinds in many different colors buzzing about. You need to watch your step, because they land on the ground and everything. The girls thought it was very cool. It was definitely the best part of the show.
I was thinking of those bug display boards where you pin down the specimens when contemplating this layout design. Lots of circles here, with some butterflies adhered here and there. I also used pop dots and raised some of them to flutter about.
This issue of CK is out and available to purchase! There are a lot of great designs and cost saving ideas there so check it out!
