Climbing with friends ... Alphabet challenge scrapbook layout

B is for busy bugs!

Whilst I was doing this layout this afternoon after the mother in law had gone home and the hubby was watching the last of the football I remembered I'd come across the alphabet challenge blog and it was b for busy bugs and so the butterflies I was adding suddenly turned this into a challenge scrapbook page too!

The photos were give to us by birthday girl Lauren's mum and show some of the children ( hubby included as a child! ) before we all went climbing at the indoor rock climbing centre. We were all very excited and as usual there were plenty of silly faces around ready to pose for the camera!

The background paper I've had for ages and then I added some little pennant type tags at the bottom from a mix of papers that seem to coordinate. I slightly distressed them with the antique photo distress ink. Then there is the doily of course! Then added the stamped butterflies which were stamped in the island indigo from su and vintage photo distress ink and were either su butterflies from the bliss set or papermania urban stamps butterflies... They seemed to mix well together I thought.

I have yet to add a title, my chipboard letters weren't making their location obvious to me this afternoon, will have to hunt them out sometime soon. But the page is pretty much done!

So for other alphabet challenge entries have a look at their blog... I'm off to link mine up now! And have a well deserved glass of wine for not just achieving so many crafty things today, but also cooking a roast dinner and clearing my craft stuff away three times in one day! Now that is impressive!
