SketchyThursday & The Butterfly Release...

After enjoying such a wonderful day with Rainee, I couldn't wait to scrap this memory.... and this week's sketch from SketchyThursdays was perfect for these photo!! I loved being able to use so many photos... because I know if I tried I wouldn't have been able to pick only a couple to scrap...

And for the photos... instead of using a color or a black&white for this layout... I did a bit of Photoshop-ing to make the butterfly the emphasis in color and the rest of the photo in black&white. I love love love this effect. I don't use it very often... but when I do... I remember why I love it so much... somehow it makes the photos even more wonderful than they already are....

I have been wanting to use some of my newest stash of papers and die-cuts by Creative Imaginations... their new IOD line with the butterflies is beautiful... is fab!! How perfect is it with these photos?? love love love it! Anyway, thanks again SketchyThursdays for another wonderful sketch... it was perfect for all the photos I wanted to scrap!!! Hope you all have a terrific Tuesday...

Justice had a butterfly kit one year he got as a gift from his aunt. We got them in the mail, followed all the directions, and watched them grow from caterpillars to butterflies. I remember he had a really hard time saying goodbye, and so did I(I cried)!

I can't tell you how many times I have wanted to work out how to do this and I spent endless hours trying to work it out and even tried searching on the internet for cheats but you have finally shed some light on something that I have so anxiously wanted to work out.
