Butterflies: Back to School Layout (Layout #38)

The Pink Elephant's "Back to School" challenge #32 was just the impetus I needed to scrapbook this year's photos of the first day of school. The butterflies on Ansley's shirt and in her tummy (plus an idea from Creating Keepsakes magazine) inspired this creation, as did the layout on p. 77 of the new Close To My Heart Autumn/Winter 2009 Idea Book. That layout and my sketch are based on the Cherish "Simple Contrast" pattern.

Without further ado,

All materials from Close To My Heart:
White Daisy, Ocean, and Black card stock
Petal B&T from Paper Garden paper pack (retiring 12/31/09)
Ocean, Petal, and Grey Wool inks
My Legacy Writers
Playful Flourishes, Chocolate Alphabet Large, Butterfly Kiss, and Celebrate Life stamp sets
Z1019 Dimensional Elements Fresh Shapes
Z1097 Nature's Ambience Rub-Ons
Dazzling Die Cuts (retired) in Petal and Ocean
White Daisy grosgrain ribbon
Clear Sparkles
