Go on get picky

Hope you all had a great weekend!! We certainly did. Melbourne played up like a hormonal teenager and Saturday was cold and miserable - but perfect for our Christmas In July party ... little bit too much food and red wine but it was great fun... only every time someone else showed up at our door, the kids were hoping there would be presents involved!! so they didn't quite get the whole concept!!
Then yesterday was an absolutely perfect day - warm and sunny ... go figure!!

I even had time to head on over to Get Picky and join in for the first time. This was the inspiration picture - and I love butterflies so this was perfect for me.

And so I had these gorgeous photos of my little princess and this beautiful paper so this layout came together very easily
I also added sooo many butterflies ( think I got carried away..)
and now put the kettle on while I show you the close ups (I got carried away with them too!!)
this one features a bunting and boys and girls... who can see 2 butterflies hiding in this picture??
 well done boys and girls...can you see 7 more in the photo below??
 How many can you spy in this one?? and some gorgeous twine and a vintage ticket from here
 and how about my cute little butterfly button??

well Melbourne also put on a show late Saturday afternoon with this stunning rainbow that was a bit hard to capture on camera but it was a FULL rainbow ( you know... right over ..) and it was a double rainbow...so pretty...see I really do live at the bottom of the rainbow!!
 Yep.... even a close up of the rainbow...no one escapes the closey
what did you get up to on the weekend???
Off to check out the other challenges!! Love the start of the month for challenges... where too first??... what should I start on???  

P.S. the answer is 17 ... 17 butterflies ..
(sorry ..too much Sesame Street - the Count..)


  1. OH WOW MEl just love this layout you work well with this inspiration challenge!!! im a bit stuck on this one??!! love that rainbow?!! My weekend was fabulous too..
    Have a great week

  2. My motto is that there can never be too many butterflies on a LO and the fact that they are all so different, love it. The background paper is very pretty as is that little girl in the photo....hehe.
    And that big pink butterfly....I think I cut that one up at some stage to use the pink and then maybe it went in the bin when that didn't quite work anyway. Good to see you using up the stash.

  3. Well I THINK you can NEVER have 2 many butterflies on a Layout!!! hehehehe
    I just L.O.V.E your layout Mel....
    Love the colors, the Banner & all 17 Butterflies!!!
    Enjoy your Week.
