View Full Version : Day 6

02-20-2010, 03:49 AM
Good morning :)

I hope you'll excuse me still being in my jammies - fortunately you can't see me or I might scare you all of, LOL.

Soooo - today you get what you asked for (oh well, at least some of you asked for it ROFL).

A 3rd paper and 150 butterflies!!!!:DD To keep the size of the download small I only put one of the butterflies in the .zip - make sure you read today's instructions carefully (and pm me if you're not sure about them), okay?

Let's have a look at today's pieces, taken from the Mega Kit "A touch of love" (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9&products_id=4286):
A paper by michellemarie aka Shelly Marie Scraps (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=52) and a butterfly by Veelana's Designs (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/store/index.php?main_page=index&manufacturers_id=54):


Use the paper once and the butterfly at least once but no more than 150 times. ATTENTION: As a special bonus, anyone with an actual 150 butterflies gets a FREE gift from my store at theStudio - and you get to pick what you want!

Have fun - I can't wait to see some beautiful butterflies swarming over your pages!
(And I promise you can chill down tomorrow, last day will be nice and easy :) ...)

Same procedure as every day: Upload your layout to this gallery (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1063) and post a link to it right here in this thread!

Have a great start to your weekend!

ETA: About those butterflies... they should be visible on your layout. :) (If 149 of them are hiding behind the paper I cannot count them ... except if they bulge the paper enough, LOL)

02-20-2010, 04:39 AM
Now that's a Challenge!!!!!! Should I???? ROFL ... tooo funnee Min :DD

02-20-2010, 05:12 AM
How about setting a good example for everybody else...? ROFL

02-20-2010, 05:41 AM
This is my Day 6...minus 148 butterflies.;)


02-20-2010, 05:52 AM
Here's mine (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=51792&limit=recent) .... 150 butterflies an all :DD ROFL

02-20-2010, 06:03 AM
um, yeah...
so, I think it's going to be a while before you all see me again...
..got to go find my butterfly net! (ROFLMHO!)

02-20-2010, 06:08 AM
BTW: it's a good thing it's the weekend... looks like Min's going to need the extra time to count butterflies! :-)

02-20-2010, 06:30 AM
ROFL allergy_mom :DD

02-20-2010, 06:32 AM
hmmm - maybe I should change the rules and make you number them on the layout? ROFL!

02-20-2010, 06:45 AM
Ha ha ha Min, this is funny, I calculated that if I made a corner with 37 butterflies that would make 148 plus the larger one near the frames making it 149 but of course I got it wrong and had 38 butterflies in my corner ... that will teach me won't it, ROFL!!! :DD

02-20-2010, 07:05 AM
ROFL - that's what I did, count one corner ... I was too curious to see if you were really going for the 150 or just for the look of it :l

02-20-2010, 07:14 AM
Here's my day 6

02-20-2010, 08:26 AM
Decided against the 150 butterflies, lol. Here's my Day 6: (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=51800&limit=recent)I don't know about everyone else, but I'm kinda dreading the vote, how in the world do you pick? Everyone has done an outstanding job!

02-20-2010, 08:29 AM
Here is my LO for Day 6. This was a lot of fun and I'm always sorry to see it end. Sorry - wasn't quite up to 150 butterflies this morning.


02-20-2010, 08:41 AM
Here is my day 6. Thank you for the wonderful additions to play with. pigluvr

02-20-2010, 09:48 AM
Ilove a challenge, Min! Here's mine- with 150 butterflies!
147 butterflies in an overlay and 3 on the flowers! LOL

02-20-2010, 09:55 AM
Here's my day 6


Only 4 butterflies for me!!

02-20-2010, 10:02 AM
:DD I thought the 150 butterflies was a joke and cannot believe how many of you actually got that many on your LOs!! Good job! I have one lonely butterfly on mine :o I also added my photos today. (linked)

02-20-2010, 10:09 AM
It took me awhile to catch all those butterflies, but I finally did it. Enjoy counting them. LOL

02-20-2010, 10:20 AM
Here's my Day 6 (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showgallery.php?cat=1063)
I even got in the 150 butterflies, this challenge is so much fun, thanks Min

02-20-2010, 10:27 AM
You are all fantastic!!!! I love to see the different ways you're including all those butterflies! Thank you all for going along with this craziness!!! :D

I also love the ones that don't have me counting quite as long!! Thank you to you, too (esp from my family, ROFL)!

Here is my page way shy of 150 butterflies.


02-20-2010, 10:47 AM
Min, are you SURE you wanna challenge us to use all those flutter-bys? You'll either have to take us at our work that all 150 are there, or you'll be here for the next week counting..........LOL. This is great fun, BTW. Thanks so much for being a great host. (And I'm in my jammies, too!). Now off I got to figure out how to easily duplicate the one butterfly into the exact amount I need with only one click.............

02-20-2010, 10:48 AM
OK - so I meant you'll have to take us at our WORD, not work......yeah, it's too early.........

02-20-2010, 11:03 AM
Min, are you SURE you wanna challenge us to use all those flutter-bys? You'll either have to take us at our work that all 150 are there, or you'll be here for the next week counting..........LOL.

So far I've been doing the counting (okay, sometimes estimating, LOL) - but I still hope my daughter is going to do a slight misstep in her behaviour today so I can make her count (insert evil laughter here) ;)

02-20-2010, 11:03 AM

I do have 151 butterflies, but they'll be hard to count since 150 are so small!! :-)


02-20-2010, 11:05 AM
Please find link below for my page - I took up the challenge for 150 butterflies, - 45 on each side border, 29 tiny on each silver frame plus 1 larger on each frame = 150 ! Boy did it take some doing but I enjoyed the challenge

Now who decided 150 butterflies? :eek:

02-20-2010, 11:43 AM
Here is min for the challenge

5 rows of 25 butterflies each, the row under the cluster, 21 are visible, and 4 free flying butterflies.

02-20-2010, 11:44 AM
Everybody is doing a fantastic job adding the 150 butterflies.

02-20-2010, 11:51 AM
Here is my layout with 150 butterflies and the pink paper. It took hours to put those little things in.


02-20-2010, 11:56 AM
Had to have a go at the 150 butterflies. I thought you were kidding at the beginning of the week. :)
Grouped the butterflies by 10s and one set has 7 with 3 larger singles scattered.

That did make counting much easier, LOL!

I thought you were kidding at the beginning of the week. :)

yeah, me too, LOL - but then I just couldn't resist, the temptation was too great ;). And I'm very happy I did it - so many fluttering beauties! I love to see how you all use and stretch your creativity to fit them all in!!!!

02-20-2010, 12:09 PM
Finally I can upload, I've been struggling the whole day, our internet connection is real crap today. I did not count my butterflies. I made a scatter brush and painted the background paper. Here is my day 6. http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/uploads/6798/Day67.jpg

02-20-2010, 12:14 PM
With all 150 butterflies. Loved the challenge of it. Thanks Min!!

Here you go Min...day 6 with 181 butterflies (just to be on the safe side ROFL)

02-20-2010, 02:05 PM
150 butterflies!!!
My page for today:

02-20-2010, 02:57 PM
I had to do all 150. I put 144 in grid form to make it easier for you to count. Some of the layouts are so creative in how they got them all on.

I'm not creative enough to put 150 butterflies so I just included their representatives. LOL

02-20-2010, 03:48 PM
Wow!!!! Look at all those butterflies in the gallery, love it!!! Thanks for this fun part to the Challenge Min, so much for you not being around too much on the weekend hey! LOL :DD

02-20-2010, 04:33 PM
hmmm - I think you might have forgotten to post in the Day 5 thread - that's where I check to send out the next day's links...

no problem - Day 6 link is pm'ed to you now...

02-20-2010, 05:01 PM

02-20-2010, 05:11 PM
Mine day 6, only 3 butterfly's the one with 150 were to much for my lo i think


02-20-2010, 05:28 PM
At first I thought, "NO WAY!" Apparently I changed my mind today....hee, hee, hee:
*Day 6 with 150 flutterbys (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=51865&ppuser=9197)
*Day 6 - minimalist approach (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=51864&ppuser=9197)

With all the butterflys, I thought I should point out the subtle move with today's paper. I clipped it to a small scallop flower and tucked it under the diamond in the top right corner for a pop of color amongst all that grey.

So I'll confess, there are actually more than 150 but since my "butterfly ruffle" goes off the page, I added more throughout the layout. I must say I really like it, which surprises the heck out of me as last night I though more flowers and a swirl were gonna be too much. Too funny. Thanks, Min! Hope it gives you a laugh.

Also, I know I had a posting problem this week. Still don't know why my program is acting up and not working properly; however, I found a work around by saving as GIF through "save for web/device" option. Whew!!! I've reposted all the previous days steps.

Maggi! I love it. The brush idea was quite clever. I also like how you morphed the butterflys to make them look so different.

02-20-2010, 05:35 PM
ROFL at how many of us couldn't resist!!! Loving both the minimalists and the ones that went for it. Thanks ladies for making a really, spectacularly awful week end happily. ;-)

02-20-2010, 05:53 PM
I had to do two ~ One with 150 and one without. I'm just not liking the look of this page.



02-20-2010, 05:57 PM
Ok that took a while, I'm another one of those nutters who just had to do IT. Most of mine were individually placed, tho I did cheat and copy some sets of 10. Whew!

I had to show one of my photos otherwise it would have looked dorky. and no there are no butterflys under the photo!

Here tis...

I'm also not looking forward to the vote... this will be really hard :)

02-20-2010, 06:12 PM
(puff, puff) okay, here I am....
It's hard to catch and train butterflies while doing housework w/ two little ones and preparing for a busy day tomorrow, but I promise no butterflies were harmed in the making of my LO!

now to go upload it...

02-20-2010, 06:39 PM
All right, some explanation for my page.

I have a standing policy that if a family member has input to give on a page about them, I try to comply. So, here is my Honey's idea, which I followed, and he said looks perfect, after much constructive criticism through the day.

Therefore, I hereby forfeit my 150 butterfly bonus, brazenly acknowledging that: I, allergy_mom, have knowingly and willfully added 160 butterflies to my page. :D

I have added numbers to each letter for your calculating assistance (not to mention my own!) The numbers equal 140, plus an additional 19 flitting about, and one more looking for some nectar.

Sorry, 'bout that, but it's really hard to train butterflies, they have such tiny brains, you know...:o

Here is Day 6 - only one lonely butterfly.


02-20-2010, 07:47 PM
Last one in .....LOL


02-20-2010, 07:48 PM
Sorry, 150 of those critters was just too too much! lol.
Here is my one butterfly!

02-20-2010, 07:55 PM
A free kit for 150 butterflies . . . hmmm . . .
I don't know any shortcuts in PS, so I'll just have to come up with a way to do it, because I LOVE your November Frost kit! Guess I'll be dreaming about butterflies after making 150!!!!

02-20-2010, 07:56 PM
ha ha ha ... you know this makes my '6 foliage' look simple now!!!! What you say Jo :DD

02-20-2010, 08:39 PM
Here's my day 6


02-20-2010, 09:10 PM
I love butterflies, too, but, 150? LOL Maybe, next time. My Day 6 (http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio.com/gallery/data/1063/medium/su_PSFeb_Day_6.jpg) is in the gallery, now.

I must tell you folks! The layouts are just gorgeous! Very inspiring. I feel I am doing some good stuff with so many lovely layouts to glean ideas from. :(( Thanks, everyone!


02-20-2010, 10:07 PM
I did 2 versions of this. One with the 150 butterflies & one without. I thought the 150 butterflies looked awful & tacky as all get out so I won't end up using this one. The one I'll keep will be the one without all those butterflies.

Now this is just too funny! I thought you were kidding when you mentioned 150 butterflies before, but, oh my goodness, you were serious! Yep, this was too funny!!! So here you go, start counting...LOL!


02-20-2010, 11:27 PM

02-21-2010, 02:05 AM
I opted for just one butterfly, lol! Although I think the ingenuity shown in using 150 calls for a round of applause!
