Playing

I originally saw these lovely pictures over at two lime leaves then after several emails flying back and forth to Lisa -A Spoonful of Sugar I got my act together and made this one.

Original the butterflies where cut out of a magazine. I decided to print out a contact sheet of some of my more colourful photos and use them. When I look closely at my butterflies I can see Gemma and Lucas in one butterfly a sunset in another.

Your picture looks terrific - using photos was a creative idea - it makes it more personal, and a good use for any leftover holiday snaps. Glad we were able to help with finding the right supplies. Sarah and Lisa

Wow! How beautiful! I am in awe of how neatly you cut those tiny butterflies. I would never have thought to use a contact sheet but what a precious way to use these photos,

I love this idea! Especially using photos to make the butterflies! Do you know what brand punch you used? I can only find ones with very basic shapes but yours is so pretty.

Leanne, that looks terrific! This is definitely getting added to my lost of things to make! Thanks for the great idea.
