The other week we took a family outing to the Royal Adelaide Zoo. Originally we were going to see the pandas, but the lines were too long for us to be bothered so we just ambled around looking at all the animals and had a really lovely morning.
On the way back to the car, as we were walking through Botanic Park we saw a whole pack of butterflies (OK, so what is the collective for many butterflies, lol? I have no clue.) They were flitting around Jamie, as if wanting to play with him. I kid you not, it was the most amazing sight. And it was another moment when I really wished for a DSLR camera so I could capture some pictures more quickly than my poor old point-and-shoot allows for.
Despite the technical handicap, I did capture a beautiful series of photos showing Jamie chasing around and around and around, trying to catch a butterfly. It really was such a magical thing, to see my child enchanted and chasing through a seriously beautiful garden after all these beautiful butterflies (we don't see orange butterflies all that often here).
This layout is up on the Aussie Scrap Source blog this weekend and features Twiddleybitz chipboard. So seriously cute.
I have used a variety of other manufacturers on here too, including 7gypsies, Cosmo Cricket, October Afternoon, Hambly Screenprints and Sassafras Lass.
Go check out the creations on the blog. Carol Thompson and Carole Jansen have made seriously beautiful off-the-page projects. Oh my goodness. Amazing work. And while you're there you might want to check out what the DT has made with Hero Arts stamps too.
