played with my big blue bug=b3

Oh, how I love you B3-you have changed how I feel about die cutting...I had the baby bug before but THIS is FANTASTIC, it cuts down to 1/4"-that's where the borders came from...I cut several others at 2", they weren't long enough so I glued them together to look like one. Also, I wanted to do a fun scrunchy border so I made a big long one of the same thing--I was just playing....it sure is fun to get a little artistic without feeling confined. (oh! I forgot to mention that the super long border was sprayed with two different kinds of glimmer mist--it was originally Kraft colored.) I don't know if you can tell but my butterflies were stamped with distress ink, then I sprayed them with a mixture of perfect pearls and water. They are pretty! This layout came to me last night as I was laying in bed, I was glad I could remember the sketch! I hope to do a card also...
Yesterday I didn't get to craft at all but I did do a MAJOR purge and boy did it feel good! If you haven't done it, you should. I have no idea why I have kept some of that paper for so long--5 years? That being said this layout was made from scraps that were on my desk and in the mess I cleaned up and just couldn't throw away. Basic Grey--just can't be thrown away! :) The rubons came in the mail, I bought some fun Valentine's things from Peachy Cheap, they are going to be put to good use here in the next few days!
I best run for now, the first of many soccer practices starts tonight. I wished it would've kept on raining today! :) Thanks for stopping by today!

Glad you are having fun with your expression! Fun layout. I agree that Basic Grey scraps should be used and not thrown out!

what a pretty layout, i love the butterflies!!
I'm glad you were able to get rid of some of your old scrappy stuff! I did that before we moved last year and it was insane how much junk I had accumulated! lol.
I hope you have fun at soccer practice! :)
