I have been dying to post this page now for about three weeks! We got our Treasured Memories Design Team January Assignment on a Wednesday, and I was scrapbooking that same Thursday. I LOVE a challenge. Shh! Don't tell the DT Coordiantor Melissa.
Anyway, our instructions were that the layout must (1) be a 2 page 12x12 layout (2) be about me and showcase my style (3) contain at least one 5x7 photo of myself and (4) use new products from Treasured Memories. I can't wait to see it hanging in the store because I think it looks much better in person. Take a looksy and tell me what you think!
I cut up the Butterfly Swirl paper, placing the swirls on top of the Crate Paper circle in the corners. I also cut out and stickled the butterflies. Since their antennae were too small to cut out, I used stick pins. I also used gems for their bodies. All the letters in the title have Stickle on them. You just can't have too much glitter!
Each of my little embellishment clusters contains a chipboard scallop, some paper flowers, a butterfly, and a journal tag. I created the journal tags with a stamp and some rub-ons. To unite the two large circles and the random embellishment clusters, I glued down some "loop-de-loops" of sequin ribbon. I wanted it to look like the butterfly trail.

P.S. A special thanks to my BFF Frances for making me look good on camera! She turned that camera every which way and took about 50 shots. I had a hard time narrowing them down because she's just that good!
