scrapping on a wednesday.

This is going to be a quick post, and I'm sorry for that! Dinner is done and I just wanted to squeeze this in before sitting down. So, I have one new layout to share with you!

(Studio Calico June Kit: Partly Sunny + MS Butterfly Punch + Cream cardstock [Best Occasions])

This layout is for Studio Calico's Sunday Sketch 6/20 & Studio Calico's Favorite Challenge. The favorite on here is the picture. It is one of my favorite photos.

The clustering of butterflies was inspired by this layout by Elizabeth Kartchner. I wasn't originally going to do the butterflies since it wasn't on the sketch, but I just decided to add them after remembering that layout by Elizabeth.

This was also my first time sewing on a layout. I went around to my grandmother's house last night to borrow her sewing machine. She taught me how to sew and then lock the stitch (within in a short period of time... She absolutely rocks, might I add! lol). That was special. I wish I had brought my camera and gotten my brother to take pictures. Or took pictures myself.

The cardstock is creased because I rode my motor scooter to her house and had to balance on that while holding the cardstock in between my legs. Quite the sight! I almost got hit by a car on my way back! Hey, I didn't see him pulling out of the driveway until I was right in front of him! I'm kind of upset about that (the cardstock being creased. lol).

Well then, I best be sending you on your way! Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a wonderful Wednesday night! xoxo - Kasey

  1. I love the story about sewing on your layout. You did an awesome job with the sewing and the story of doing that is one you will have to scrap - even without photos. I love the little pink heart at the top. Fantastic layout. I think the crease is wonderful. It will remind you of how you learned how to sew on a layout for the first time.
