You & Me (My Creative Scrapbook)

Hey there, friends!  I'm so happy it's Saturday...I need some scrappy time!  Today I'm sharing another page (and a quick tutorial) I created using the August Main Kit from My Creative Scrapbook.  Yep, it's more of the Beautiful Life collection from Echo Park.  I really like the navy blue thrown in with all the pinks, reds and yellows...such a nice contrast.

I decided to use lots of various patterned paper strips for this page, and I got a lot of use out of those little bar code strips at the bottom of each page.  I've been seeing a lot of confetti creations lately, and I wanted to give it a try.  So I created this super easy tutorial is at the end of my post.  This page was pretty easy...I smudged some paint around, and I also painted the white lace included in the kit.

No layout is can totally see my dried glue here...oh, well, right?  :)

Here's a close-up of my butterfly...I think I like him.  I also punched holes with a thumb tack to create a subtle trail.

I painted the edges of this little butterfly and outlined the ones on the paper strip.

Here's a mini-tutorial of my butterfly...not hard at all.

Be sure to check out all the available kits from My Creative much to choose from :)  Thanks so much for stopping by today!
