Challenges, Challenges!

I'm on a roll today!! Just finished this one which is based on the PageMaps sketch at Stuck On You Sketches this week. I had fun with this page because I got to use my new Distrezz-It-All tool! I've had it for a few weeks now but just haven't done any pages that I could use it on! I know Easter doesn't scream DISTRESS ME but I think it worked! I used Making Memories Flutter papers and We R Memory Keepers stitched cardstock (LOVE this stuff!), the flowers are by Irene's Garden that I got on clearance for cheap-cheap at JoAnn.com and the butterflies came from the May Deal of the Month over at Creative Charms. The letters are Jillibean Soup "Pertie Pink" Alphabeans, journaling paper is Theresa Collins and the leaves were cut on my cricut from a tracing I made from a very old Sizzix die...one of the first ones I got over 12 years ago!! Buttons and floss from my stash.  

I'm getting some mileage out of this layout!!  In addition to the above, the buttons qualify this layout for the weekly challenge over at Frosted Designs.  The challenge is to use buttons on your project.  That's a super easy one for me as I use buttons all the time!! The flowers qualify this layout for the weekly challenge over at the Alphabet Challenge blog.  The challenge is:  F is for FLOWERS! 

Boy do I love having my Fridays off in the "summer". With the kids in school still, I don't have to worry about anything but doing what I want to do!! Only 2 more of these Fridays left....then they will be home for the summer too!
