Bye, Bye Butterfly

Pinwheels have continued to be a popular trend in Scrapbooking and today, at Get It Scrapped!, the Creative Team is sharing ideas for using Pinwheels on your layout.  I had a lot of fun with this assignment, because I have been a big fan of the Pinwheel trend.  Here is what I created:

We purchased a Butterfly Garden and the kids were able to watch the caterpillars go through the phases of becoming a butterfly.  Their favorite part is releasing the butterflies, once they emerge from the chyrsalis.  I wanted to use the Pinwheel trend on this layout, to add a fun whimsical feel.  One of the Elle's Studio patterned papers had a Pinwheel pattern, so I fussy cut three from the paper and added a punched circle and sequin to the center of each one.  I placed the Pinwheels in a visual triangle on my page to help draw the eye around my layout.

The Creative Team is sharing much more inspiration using Pinwheels, so make sure you visit the Get It Scrapped! Blog, to see what they did!
