Social Butterfly-Masculine Layout

One of the characteristics of Fetal Alcohol Syndrome is a trusting nature and being a social butterfly. So true with Scott. His brother mentioned the other day  that it blew him away how we could go no where without Scott running into someone he knows. And he is very popular, I have to use Smart Limits with AT&T to control his phone calling while at work or College because he is unable to make anyone wait if they call. He would never have survived growing up in the 60's and 70's! And remember Party Line Days? Oh my he would have driven everyone crazy, LOL!

So I decided to take a vacation picture for Ripley's Believe It or Not (Branson, MO) and use it to showcase one of Scott's personality traits. To be honest this LO take a few days because it is very tricky to do a layout with butterflies and still have it look masculine. But Scott is happy with it now after SEVERAL opinions about the use of glitter ribbon! He won:)

Journaling: (around picture) Ever since you were able to talk you have been a social butterfly. You are comfortable in any situation and put people at ease.

Cardstock and Paper: Lawn Fawn  Brightside
Twinkling H20's: teal zircon, Mediterranean, meridian
Punches: Ek Success 1.5" square, 1.25" square
Ink: Hero Arts Cerulean Chalk Ink
Ribbon: Michael's
Stamp and Dies: MFT Inspired be Butterflies
Embossing Powder: Ranger Distress Ink Black Soot
Embossing Ink: Versamark

Die Cuttin Divas-Anything Goes I used MFT's Inspired by Butterflies Die
The Paper Players Lesley's Theme Challenge: I used Favorite color: teal, Masculine (Scott's page) Punches
Shopping Our Stash   What Was I Thinking? I brought Twinkling H2O's and they have sat there for over a year because I was clueless on how to use them on a scrapbook page.  They were perfect for making butterfly embellishments.

Have a wonderful day enjoying the Social butterflies in your life!
