SPRING CROP Challenge 1: Butterflies Are Free *CLOSED*

SPRING CROP Challenge 1: Butterflies Are Free *CLOSED*

Postby SpiceMix » Apr 23rd, '10, 1:59 pm

Welcome to the Cocoa Daisy Spring Crop and welcome to your first creative challenge.

I am sure you have already guessed that this challenge involves butterflies

A free-fluttering butterfly stopping for a moment on a new bloom reminds me of all things tender, beautiful yet so fleeting in time. Can't hold it or keep it, but they bring pure joy. Yes, I find butterflies absolutely mesmerizing! Needless to say, butterflies find their way into my scrapbooking beyond pages about spring.

So, your challenge is to use butterflies as accents in non-spring themed pages.

Let me share my take on this challenge using the May 2010 Cocoa Daisy kit.

And some more Cocoa Daisy and non-Cocoa Daisy pages...

A Cocoa Daisy page. I used a big Hambly butterfly cut out as a symbol of how delicate a baby looks in his sleep.

the details: Make sure you upload your layouts to the Cocoa Daisy Gallery with the Challenge Number and the title of your LO (e.g. Challenge One - Butterflies are Free). After you have uploaded the LO, please link to the this thread!

Can't wait to see what inspiring ideas you come up with
Thanks,
Mou
