Spread Your Wings

I created this lo for the Lasting Memories challenge this week. I used the My Memories Suite software again and created a digital lo. I used Echo Park For the Record digital collection for the background paper. I used some flourishes and the journal tag that came with the program and some digital butterfly files I bought. The challenge was to use all black and white papers, photos and embellishments. I used some photos from a butterfly release we went to at our museum. They gave each family a little folded paper with a butterfly inside. You could hear the butterfly scratching inside the paper and when they told us to we unfolded the paper and there they were. We had just had a really big storm come through so all of the butterflys were kind of hovering in one space not wanting to fly away. It was fun to watch them. Thanks for looking at my lo.

  3. Very beautiful Beth!! We have a "Butterfly" house at our local museum and I have some similar pictures. You are giving me some great ideas. :-) In fact... check out the comments section under your "Featured" post today on the LM blog...Melissa, a fellow participant, left a really nice quote that goes with butterfly layouts. (In case you have more photos.)
