Butterfly Hunt

When I started scrapbooking this vacation album, I bought the new Fancy Pants Beach Bum and Beach Babe kits.  I adore Fancy Pants stuff!  But, I have so much older stash that I made a promise to myself to also use up all the old supplies that I have had kicking around, some of it for years.  I have stuff that I won in contests or stuff I earned on design teams.  It's bordering on the ridiculous! So, here is my first jump into using up some old stash and I'm quite pleased with the result.

This is a really old Heidi Swapp paper that I misted with Tattered Angels and inked with Distress Inks.  I pop-dotted the butterflies (which were already partially cut for that purpose) and added some My Mind's Eye brads. I inked the butterflies as well. The vines were cut with the Cricut. Even the paper strips are from scraps of Heidi Swapp, Fancy Pants and some specialty paper from a Scraptivity kit.  See?  I had to sneak in some Fancy Pants, somewhere.  ;)

I should have another page for the end of the week.  I've been on a roll!  Woohoo!

Thanks for looking,
