DoodleCharms/Bug!

Hello Everyone! I had a wonderful time at my Sister's. But I'm telling you, Texas was hot!!! It's pretty hot here in Alabama, too! I took tons of pictures that I will scrap at some point. LOL I have a layout for you to see today. Now, I haven't made a layout in a very long time. I got started making cards and my scrapbooking took a backseat. A waaaaaay backseat! But over on http://paperplaytime.blogspot.com/ challenge #4,where Sue is our Paper Queen this week, we are to make a card, layout, 3-D project or any paper craft project with the theme Bugs, Bees, Ants, or Ladybugs. And then over on http://creativetimeforme.com/ Throwback Thursday, Emma wants us to use Doodlecharms (if you have it) and do a 6x6, 8x8, 12x12 or a 2-pg. layout. I decided to combine these challenges because Doodlecharm has some cute bugs on it. I did an 8x8 layout. Used the jar on pg. 95. I used my Gypsy to hide the shadow line on the side of the jar. I cut it in a gray cardstock and a piece of clear plastic. I cut the firefly (pg. 93) and the beetle (pg. 92) from Doodlecharms. I used Waterfall Stickles on the body of the firefly. The butterflies, the one in the jar and the other 4, are two different MS punches. Used bling for the bodies of the butterflies and the eyes of the bugs. The square will be used for a picture. 'Bug' was cut from Jasmine. Also cut the shadows. I am going to use this as a pg. for our 'almost 9' yr. old Granddaughter. One of her nicknames is 'Bug'! The pearl I put on the tip of the g is her birth stone. She will be 9 on 6/30. I think this will be a great start for her birthday album.  Check out both of these challenges. You have until Sunday 6/27 to make something. I had so much fun making this! Hope ya'll like my layout. Have a fantastic day!!! :)
