Spread Your Wings & Fly!

It's June already! Time flies; before you know it, Christmas will be upon us and another year is over!

Well, I'm glad this blog is now moving into it's second month of life. To kick off June I'd like to share my 'all things butterfly' layout. When I came across the Bo Bunny Gabrielle collection online, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. I was ecstatic when I discovered that Craft Haven stocked almost the whole range; papers, embellishments etc, it was so fabulous ... I busted my scrap-shopping budget for the month (again!).

Here's my layout:

As you can see, the photo is most apt for this butterfly theme! I'm a total butterfly girl :)
I decorated the tag with Distress Ink Pads: Tim Holtz Aged Mahogany for the edges, Pumice stone for the butterflies and Tattered Rose all over. Butterfly designs made using Martha Stewart Royal Butterfly punch.

Another angle of the wraps and trim. I housed the date of the photo in a mini oval chipboard frame painted as per the chipboard trim. Alas, I can't recall where I got that oval. Flowers are Prima and brads are Bo Bunny Gabrielle.
So there's how I'm starting my June, I still have enough Gabrielle stuff for another two layouts I think. I aim to complete them within the month. Plus I'm also going to challenge myself to participate in more sketch challenges, that's pretty good reason enough to go stock up on supplies heehee :)

Very beautiful layout you have for the Gabrielle line. Your son is a real cutie-pie (I guess name under Lucas are the Cutest ;o) lol
