Urban Scrapbook Monthly Challenge

Can you believe it's August 1st. already?!  I must say though, this was probably the hottest July I think we've had for a long time.  When I left my air-conditioned work (Urban Scrapbook) the other day, my car registered the temperature outside at 36C!  Yikes!
And speaking of Urban Scrapbook, here is my monthly Design Team Challenge layout:


In our kits, we had papers, stickers and brads from the BoBunny collection, Lemonade Stand, Prima covered wire, Chalk Ink, Ranger Glossy Paper, and cardstock.  I used Sizzix's Tim Holtz Butterfly Frenzy Decorative Strip,  Layered Butterfly, and an oldie but goodie, Paper Rosettes.  With the wire, I made flowers and two words.  A helpful hint when shaping your wire words; is write on a piece of paper your word that you want to create.  Use that as a guideline for shaping the wire.   I printed my photo on the glossy paper twice, and then die-cut.  I also die-cut the butterfly out of patterned paper, and then adhered the three layers together in the middle.  Love the papers in this collection!  Hope you check out what the other designers came up with at Urban, they all are amazing!

To all the Canadians out there, have a  great long weekend and enjoy this beautiful summer weather!

Thanks for stopping by,

Jan

I am absolutely in love with this layout Jan. The butterflies are so stunning in all those colours and each one seems to be set in the perfect spot. I saw it at Urban yesterday and it's even more spectacular up close. Have a fabulous trip!
