March Monthly Inspiration Challenge at Auntie Em's Scrapbooking

In like a lamb ... man it was a beautiful day out there today!  Just below freezing, full sunshine, no wind to speak of ... a gentle lamb. I guess we will be in for a Lion in 30 short days!

Well, since March is here now, I will give you the reveal of my March project for Auntie Em's Scrapbooking.  We got to use some wonderful items from Webster's Pages this month.  Mellisa and I used the March sketch from the Scrapbook & Cards Today Page Maps calendar as inspiration.  It never ceases to amaze me that we can use the same sketch and the same papers and end up with such different ideas.

This month again I was stumped at how to use three photos.  This whole multiple photo thing is going to either make me snap or make me a better scrapbooker.  I hope it's the later, not the former!

I call this layout - Innocence of Youth 

I wanted to go on the March theme, and made a calendar out of a journaling card.  I chose the date that the photo was taken last year - which really has no significance.  I am really starting to love my I-rock tool, and moreover using a Sharpie to colour the gems. I loved the butterflies on this page I wanted to enhance them even more - so I stamped various butterflies with a Martha Stewart stamp in Staz On ink all over.  I used some Bloomers (ribbon trim) and Sparklers (buttons) to finish off the project. I made one of my signature handmade Cabbage Roses
