I hope you had a great weekend & Monday. Mine was great, but I started feeling icky. Probably due to all the junk food this weekend. I have eaten more junk food these past few days than I have eaten in several MONTHS combined. Time to head back to the fruit and veggies. :)
Well, I'm popping in to share a- no, not a card, a...layout. :) I will be entering this layout into the Scrap Challenge Yourself blog. The point of this blog is to include pictures of yourself in the layouts. Let me tell you, there's slim pickings here. :D I don't like to be in front of the lens. Especially since my illnesses have turned me into Olive Oil- you know, Popeye's girlfriend. ;)
Anyhoo, the theme for this challenge is One Little Word, which was created by Ali Edwards. The concept of "One Little Word" is to "adopt" a word for the year and use it. My word? COURAGE. Lord knows I need some of that. :D
Let's begin with a few detail pictures.
To create these butterflies, I used the negative portion of a die-cut, sponge, & ink and then sponged the shape on the base. Then I used the die-cut again to trace the butterflies & fussy-cut them.
I added sequins to each butterfly to represent their "colorful" spots. It's hard to see, but each butterfly has a name: Courage, Valor, & Brave.
(Supplies: cardstock, journal cards- Echo Park, pattern paper, butterfly die-cut, washi tape, sequins, letter & flower stickers, medal brad, type writer, machine stitching)
So what will be your word this year?
Well, time for me to bid you a good day. Thank you for coming over to visit. :D
