Butterfly Gardens

On Sunday i was putting away a giant pile of layouts into albums. It's always fun to go through the layouts that i've worked on over the last few (or four!) months and appreciate them again whist i'm storing them away. i came across this one that i realised i hadn't shared here yet, it's based on a sketch in the Pencil Lines book. 

Paper: Basic Grey, Ki Memories, Girls Paperie, Alpha Stickers: Sassafras, Stickers: October Afternoon, Mist: Maya Road Washi Tape: American Crafts Punches: Woodware, Martha Stewart, Other: Tiny Attacher.

LOVE that Ki lace paper, it has so many fun possibilities !! This photo was taken at a Butterfly Garden that i went to when i was travelling in Malaysia. i have a TON of photos from that day. There were a lot of unusual breeds of butterflies that were just SO beautiful (don't worry, i didn't use the flash, wouldn't want to scare them!). However i don't have the time nor the desire to scrapbook them all. To make sure they get seen instead of stuck on my hard drive, i'll print a load in 6x4 and store them next to this layout in some American Crafts divided page protectors. i tend to do this a lot where i've got lots of photos from one event/day, especially for my travel albums. i'm really bad at keeping 'regular' photo albums because i don't scrap chronologically, so i find this to be quite a good happy medium. So, i'm intrigued, if you're a scrapper, do you keep regular photo albums too?

Super sweet page! I have all my pre-digital photos in photo albums, but nowadays if they're not scrapped they stay on my hard drive!

So pretty! Love the photo! To answer your question nope I don't keep regular photo albums and I don't do video stuff either(i'll probably hear about the video thing when my kids are older lol).
