Butterflies Everywhere!

My 6-year old granddaughter asked me to show her how to make these butterflies a few weeks ago.  She got so good at making them, there was no stopping her.  She even embossed them and combined the different colors all by herself.  I was totally impressed because she only used scraps.  Yesterday, she handed me all the butterflies she had made and sadly told me she was giving them to me because her mommy was going to throw them out.  I could not bring myself to get rid of them, so here's what I did with her butterflies.
Natie's butterflies were perfect for this layout.  Each butterfly lifts so I can add some journaling.  The pictures were taken at the Bellagio's Spring Floral exhibit.  At the exhibit there is a butterfly sanctuary where we saw some beautiful butterflies.  Natie's butterflies are just as beautiful.
Added floral embellishments by Recollections to both pages.  Lace embellishments "boutique fleur" by Recollections were also used underneath the pictures of this layout.  Oh, I forgot to mention the butterflies were made on the Big Shot with the Beautiful Butterflies bigz die by Stampin' Up.
The designer paper (DSP) is from K and C Company which I found in the clearance section of Michael's.  Being the bargain shopper that I am, I could not leave it behind.  What I love about this colorful stack is that it has 60 instant pages.  You just have to add your pictures and a few embellishments.  In the next few days, I will be posting more layouts with this DSP.

Enjoy your week of Spring break and come back and visit again.

Sending you embossed hugs, Erlinda

Ohhhh, so sad her mom was going to throw them out! You used them wonderfully and I am sure she is thrilled that you used them.
