Getting back to scrapbooking again

I used to scrapbook when my kids were young, and then get into card making, the 12 x12 layout became history, recently, I was inspired by the beautiful layout I've seen on various blogs, I finally dig out all the old photos and started scrapbooking again.

This one is for the challenge over at 

There is no sketch required but I am using one of their sketch for the DT call


Here's my take


The challenge is to use 3 different patterned paper from 3 different manufacturer, plus we had to use some old papers, the older the better, not an easy one, but I had lots of fun.


This lilac PP is from K and Co, I bought it when my daughter was little, she is 18 now, this paper must be like 12-13 years old. LOL


The PP for that little tag and the dark purple flower, I think is Karen Foster, as old as the K and Co PP


I love the butterflies, I stitched them with sewing machine
and the bluish purple PP they rest on is KI memories, as old as can be


12 x 12 Scrapbook page is so big, it is just so hard to capture everything without taking lots of pictures


The big butterfly is made up of 2 different PP


The green scalloped green DP is Taylor for Daisy D's, are they still around?


Alright, I only remember to take picture for 3 of the PP, the other 3 that I added later were from scraps, so no picture to show


I even show you the manufacturer of the PP here, LOL!


Alright, if you want to play along, here's the LINK to Scrapbookers Anonymous, they also have a DT call that you might want to consider.
