School Days {Cosmo Cricket: Girl Friday and UpCycle}

For the month of June, Kayla has challenged us over at to use Cosmo Cricket products and create a layout with grids. I LOVE grids and already had a sketch in mind to use! Ready for "Grids Gone Wild!"? lol The frame paper is a grid, as well as the grid made out of the pink flower paper.
The sketch I've used is from Nuts About Sketches:

 I popped the title up, distressed and/or inked all of the edges and machine stitched a border. I cut a doilie in half to use in two places...
 And then cut a flower bling embellishment in half to use for each of the flower centers and hand stitched trails for the butterflies.
 I even got to use this felt "now and then" piece that has been in my stash for probably a couple of years!
 The only problem with this month's challenge is that mine can't count in the poll since last month's layout won! I'm super excited about winning for May - here is the winning layout :)
Thanks for stopping by & I hope to see you playing along this month with the CC challenge!

I LOOOVE the look of the stitching for the butterfly trails. GREAT idea!!! I'm looking for blogs to feature on Scrapbooking Whimsy and this would be perfect for the stitching post coming up, if you'd be interested in sharing.
