I did this simple layout last night and worked to get it finished so I could post it today. I am not sure how something so simple takes so long to finish. Maybe it was the 30 minutes on hold with ProvoCraft, or the 4 hours on the phone with my BFF Karen, or stopping to make a grilled cheese, letting Lucy out to potty, cleaning the kitchen....I guess there are plenty of reasons now isn't there!

I had given myself one of my famous haircuts *okie is just glad she didn't cut her finger this time like she did before* and I was trying to take a picture of it to send to a friend and Shiane came over and jumped into the frame. She is such a ham. There isn't enough pictures of my daughter and I together so I decided to scrap these instead of just delete them.
I actually used a sketch from Sketches2Scrapbook for the basis of the layout. If you don't know what Sketch2Scrap is, it is an app for the Iphone. I downloaded the free version first and then ended up buying the full version for $4.99. It was worth every cent!
I thought about using the Cuttlebug on the butterflies but thought the patterns on the paper were so bold that the butterflies needed to be more simple. This is not one of my favorite layouts but when my daughter saw it she said "OMG! I love it! We look so much alike" and went on and on about it. That is when I made another realization about scrapbooking...it isn't about making a work of art with each scrapbook page, it is about creating a memory that brings a smile to a face.
