Another snowy/rainy day here today. Spring is just 3 days away, so the weather should be improving soon. Good time to share a summertime layout with you.

We had a wonderful time last year on Canada Day visiting the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory. It was like being in the rain forest filled with butterflies.

Here are some closeups....

I layered up some different size punched butterflies (I had these previously punched out in this paper...good thing as the punch has grown wings and flown away!!!) I also added some postage type stamping randomly throughout my layout.

I cut the title using my Silhouette and a font called Alphabet turned out
Another butterfly and an arrow die cut finish off the title!!!

I typed out my journaling on my We R Memory Keeper Typecast and then strip cut it and layered it over a vellum tag adding another punched butterfly, clip, brad and Tin Pin.

Product List: Authentique - Be(You)tiful Collection, AC Cardstock, Merci Tin Pin, Recollections - Vellum, and the clip, brad & eyelet are from my stash.

I was inspired by Sketch 304 from Creative Scrappers.

I was also inspired by the challenge at  More Than Words To use the word Beautiful and Butterflies on your creation. I did both!

Thanks for stopping by! Stay Crafty!!!
