Furry Friend Friday

Can a butterfly be furry?  To be honest, I really don't know.  But caterpillars are so I guess that counts.  :)

I have to admit that when I started, I had full intentions of making a dog layout.  But then it turned into something completely different.  I guess that's what happens when inspiration hits. 

Actually, I think it's that my Nana has been on my mind a lot.  As I've mentioned before, we lost her in May and she was a HUGE part of my life for 43 years.  Anyway, since she passed, my family and I have been seeing dragonflies and butterflies everywhere. And so...this is what happened...

My layout turned into a scrapbook page with lots of beautiful butterflies. Originally, the background was just the Tempting Turquoise cardstock.  It was pretty -  but I wasn't really happy with it as I felt it needed something more.  I decided to take a small stamp from the Butterfly Basics set and stamp all over the turquoise cardstock to add interest to the background.  MUCH better.  I used the Tempting Turquoise ink pad to give it a tone on tone look. (the color in my photo is a bit off.  I promise it's a true turquoise in real life.)

I guess that's it for today.  Sorry no video for this one.  There were so many pieces that I figured if I tried to film it, it would be one loooong video!  Soon though, I will have more videos up for you.
Have a great weekend!

Shelley, your layout is lovely and the sentiment is beautiful! Turquoise is my favorite color, and the yellow was a nice complimentary color choice.
