Ready? Set...Go! {The Girls' Paperie}

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! Has there ever been a better weekend...NSD AND Mother's Day? :)

I'm cropping with the chicks at Birds of a Feather Kit Co - you should come join us! If you do... you can see my very first layout I ever made ;) This is for Deb's challenge to great a multiphoto layout using small photos.

 I've had this PageMaps sketch on my desk for about a month now and almost got rid of it because it was intimidating me :( But digging through my stash, I came across these papers and it was a perfect fit!
 Whatever did I do before I used my sewing machine? lol I distressed all of the pieces with my cat's eye chalk so I'm linking this up for the current challenge at The Paper Variety. Use inks, mists or paint for a chance to win over there!
Love those butterflies :) Sorry the pictures are so dark...but I'm not going to waste time fixing that when I could be scrapping! Off to work on another challenge!!
