Butterfly LO

I created this lo for a challenge but I can't get it to load.  Oh well here it is anyway. LOL  I made this lo with pictures from our trip to the St Louis Zoo last year in between hockey games.  The zoo has a butterfly garden that you step into and the buttlerflys fly all around you.  They were so cool and there were so many different ones.  I got tons of pictures and thought I could use some to fit this lo perfectly.   I used K&Company paper for my main sheet.  The background paper if from Cosmo Crickets Earth Love collecton.  I stamped the butterflys on white cardstock with Hero Arts stamps and colored them in with copics.  I used a K&Company tag pad for the journaling box.  I used the Give A Hoot cartridge for the title.  Thanks for looking!

All American Boy Layout

I created this layout to meet a few different challenges. One is for the Scrappin n Chattin group I belong to and the other is for the Lasting Memories challenge. I used a tan sheet of cardstock for the base. I punched a lacy border in white cardstock and a bubbles border n dark blue cardstock. I used Thickers for the red glitter letters and they are hard to see but cut out the American with Lyrical Letters on the Cricut then ran them through the Xyron X and glittered them. I made them too dark though so they don't stand out very well on my starry paper background. The star paper is from Creative Imaginations. Finally I cut out stars with the Cricut George cartridge then pierced holes and stung thread through them. I saw a layout like this in the Scrapbook trends magazine this month and wanted to try it. The photo is a picture of Will wearing his Uncle Sam hat that he wears every year for the 4th of July parade. Thanks for looking.
