Make My Monday Butterfly and/or Dragonfly

This week, at Make My Monday we are taking our last look at NATURE with Butterflies and or /Dragonflies. The choice is yours. I would like to thank Fliss who chose the theme and January's weekly subjects, I have had a great time, which I'm sure you have too. Don't forget Fliss has ofered a prize for the overall winner in January. I am often saying you don't have to make a card, it can be any papercraft project you wish, so I thought it was time I made something other than a card. I am going to challenge myself to provide one scrapbook page each month. Hopefully Scrapbooking will become more popular.
This L.O (Lay Out) is part of a 2 page set, where my journalling panel is, with details of the day. We had taken some grandchildren to a local park one day last year. I used paper with dragonflies to match the colours. I added felt flowers and made some dragonflies from stamping and colouring. Some dragonflies were made with a dragonfly punch. One of the first things I learnt with Scrapbooking is COLOUR - look at your photographs, what colour/s are predominet, then find the papers and card to suit. The title, for every page needs a title, was made on  Word  on my PC.
I am looking forward to visiting you over the next week for I am sure we will be seeing a lot of beautiful cards/projects with butterflies and or dragonflies. Have fun, pop over to see the wonderful samples from the Design team, lots of inspiration for you, in our last week of NATURE. I wonder what February has in store?
