Honorary Design Team Member

I was so honored to be asked to be on the Design team for Scrapbookers Clubhouse. I had so much fun last summer as a Guest DT member so of course I didn't hesitate to say YES!

Among the duties of a Design Team member, my favorite is the challenges. I was asked to offer a seasonal challenge so I created this fun and frilly bit of sweetness

I got most of the stuff on this from Michaels... the only things not from Michaels were the Basic Grey stickers, the Heidi Swapp transparent overlay butterflies and the flower/button combo.

The eyelet squares are gift cards from the dollar bin! and can you believe that awesome felt coaster? I didn't have a clue how I'd use it but I knew it needed to be on some creation or other.

This is a picture of a quiet moment with my niece on her mommy's lap at her Aunt Nancy's wedding.

I hand wrote an excerpt from Martina McBride's "She's a Butterfly" song lyrics around the main image of the layout.

I just love that sweet little bug.

So my challenge, if you can't tell, was to create a layout using LOTS of yellow and at least 1 butterfly. I am challenged, myself, to create with yellow, so I offered everyone the same challenge I was trying myself with.

The best part of being on the design team is that it's allowed me to leave the scrapbooking drought that I was suffering under. I have created many cards over the past several months but haven't done a layout in LONGER than the amount time that I've neglected my blog!

I hope to not do either of those things again! I've got a lot going on but not so much that I can't record it and share!
