Club Scrap Die Cut BlogHop

It's time for a Club Scrap Bloghop, Yeah!!!!! For my project, I used the Tim Holtz Ideology butterfly die with Milestones purple paper for the butterfly skeleton and Raku print for the filler of the butterfly wings. I also used a homemade polymer clay bead colored with Perfect Pearls and some beads and wire from my stash for the body of the butterfly.

Here is the order of the hop: (you are here)

Hop on over to Nancy's blog to see some more Club Scrap diecut creations.

Well, I put it off as long as I could and then decided to combine this challenge with our May Lottery challenge over at PAO. This week we're in the wayback machine and using one of Tim Holtz's 12 tags of Christmas as our foundation. I used some white paint along with the Weathered Wood and Frayed Burlap Distress Inks. I made a packing tape transfer of a vintage image and added a TH phrase stamp and tissue flower topped with one of my own handmade dictionary paper flowers. Hop on over to Studio L3 to check out all the cool entries this week. mmmm......I'm having trouble adding links today and will need to troubleshoot.....sorry for the bother.

Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day to both my mom and my grandma. Love this picture of us standing around gabbing and drinking coffee together in my mom's kitchen.
And a Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there. Have a great day!

I am a Butterfly

Club Scrap's new May kit Papillon is just spectacular. I was cruising the picture files and came across these favorites of me and my dad in Golden Gate Park in 1966. I immediately thought I looked like a butterfly flitting to all the flowers in the garden. What a perfect set of photos for this quick drop layout that came with the digi kit. Enjoy your Wednesday everyone!
