SPRING CROP Challenge 1: Butterflies Are Free *CLOSED*

Postby SpiceMix » Fri Apr 23, 2010 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

I loved playing with this one...

Mine is actually using butterflies and about butterflies..

We were in Key West Butterfly Conservatory last year and here are some cool shots captured on this layout!
