Spring Busy Page for Scrap For Help Challenge
Our lawn is a mixture of grass, clover, and a whole lotta dandelions. We embrace the little yellow flower unlike our city friends. Firstly, when you are mowing, you can clearly see a green edge amongst the yellow. Secondly, there is something therapeutic watching them shoot out of the side of the mower. Thirdly? The bees and butterflies freak out over them!
My lawn and trees are a buzzing mass of happiness.
Insects hard at work gathering.
I'd like to sit outside in a lawn chair and just listen to the hum but the wireless doesn't reach that far...plus there are the blood thirsty black flies...also hard at work.
So, what is one to do? Send out the 11 year old with a camera. She came home, had a frustrating day at school so I suggested she chase around some of the butterflies. Not sure what they are, but they are everywhere! See them up there with their orange, black and white spots? Made a great die cut!
WHO wants to bet my Dad identifies them for me and they eat something I like......
So out she went in the bright sunshine, with my camera. Got lots of cute photos and she only got one really bad bug bite...
Thought I'd link this page up with Scrap for Help where they require the use of an old envelope! Mine has the dandelion photo peeking out.
Also used some very old lace on here that was passed along by Marilyn.
And grabbed a bag of VERY old Close to My Heart and Stampin' Up paper. Felt good to use some of it up!
It included this perfect butterfly or moth paper!
Of course my very favorite part of this page was this vintage advertisement featuring a dandelion! Thanks Marivic!
And I leave you with the infamous words of an old boss who liked to walk around and say:
BUSY BUSY WORKY WORKY
Very annoying. :-)
