WOW! It's been WAY too long since I've gotten to scrap... thanks to my last two weeks before the move I picked up CRAZY hours at work and all my other free time is spent with EVERYONE I know so they can get last minute time with me. No complaints though :) I'm having a BLAST! But it's good-old friday meaning no work and all day to scrap. Plus tonight going to Olive Garden with my family for dinner - yummmm.

First, before I get on to my newest LO, I would like to mention some delicious stuff going on out in the blog world
1. Imaginisce blog is giving away an AWESOME prize over at their blog. Check it out HERE! The best part is there are MULTIPLE ways to win, and this is my third entry!! :)

2. Cathy is giving away an awesome candy. Enter to win by going HERE. This candy has products from the secret crafter and Instyle Stamps.

3. Simon Says stamp is also giving away some Trinket Pins, yummy!!

And now onto my LO for the morning :)
Here is one I did for a picture of my closest friends and I enjoying a fun summer day with volleyball and BBQ!

Products Used: Papers are from Bella Bella by Carina Gardener, Creative Memories, and Colorbok. The butterflies were made using the 3D butterfly tutorial I've shared before with my martha stewart butterfly punch and some shiny paper and acetate. The letters are by BoBunny - Love Bandit combo sticker sheet. I made the purple crystal swirls with acetate and puffy paint. The banner was also hand made by cutting triangles into purple scraps and stitching some shiny thread through the edges.

Here is a close up of the butterflies and purple sparkly swirl (above)

(Below) A close up of the very simple banner I created.

The LO turned out very simple, but I have a tough time following simple sketches. I tend to add so many embellies and papers to my LOs, that it was nice to make something so different from my usual. I am satisfied with the final product :)

Challenges entered:
The Scraproom blog - Elements that POP! (butterflies and banner)
Design Dollies: Element 1 for August - Friends! (my awesome picture)
Design Dollies: Sketch Challenge (tough but I did it!)
Design Dollies: Color Challenge - Olive Green, Cream, Purple (PURPLE!? I actually had a tough time finding purple in my stash... weird huh!?)

Thanks for looking :)
Tata for now!
