Butterfly Mini Book - warning photo heavy

Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE BUTTERFLIES and can spend hours photographing them, as my poor computer knows, I have 100's of photos, and I have been wanting to do a layout on some of them for ages!!! I just couldn't pick out one or even 5, if I wanted to make layouts of them, even 8 x 8's I was going to be doing them for ever. I had a light bulb moment while in Running With Scissors looking around, Tracey had some Pink Pig Books for altering and I got this 6 x 4 one, I thought I can do lots of little mini layouts to show my photos! The layouts themselves are very simple as I wanted the photos to be the prominent feature!

So what I have done is picked a photo from every time I took shots of butterflies. I looked up a butterfly recognition site, so the names are hopefully correct!!! Some of the more common butterflies feature a few times.

I will be adding to this book as time goes on!

All supplies were bought at Tracey's shop Running with Scissors!
