Cute as a Bug - Scrapbook page

Another scrapbook page today. I had this great picture of Kayla holding a caterpillar and there is a cute story behind it so I really wanted to scrapbook it while I can still remember the story. I wanted to incorporate the color of her jacket into the page so I chose to use Pumpkin Pie and I really like the way it looks with vintage violet so that's how I chose my colors. The page is a 12x12 page the base is whisper white. See the caterpillars at the bottom of the page aren't they so cute. I used my 1/2 inch Stampin Up! circle punch and one of the flowers from the spring bouquet flower punch to make the feet and antennas. Yup it's that easy. For the vintage violet paper I took a regular 81/2 x 11 piece of card stock and flipped it sideways. I used the Rough Texture jumbo wheel to give the paper a little bit of oomph. For the title I used the Typeset Alphabet (lower case), also I used our new spiral punch to make the paper look like it was torn out of a notebook. I used a small piece of our vintage violet stitched grosgrain ribbon on one of the square clips from our hodgepodge hardware set. You can see that I tied in the pumpkin pie and vintage violet by using it in the title and on the caterpillars. Behind the orange card stock is a hidden picture, a close up of Kayla's hand with the caterpillar in it. You can see the close to cocoa tab on the top that says pull. Behind the main picture is my hidden journal, where I wrote the cute story of Kayla and her caterpillar.
Enjoy and Happy Stampin!
