New Releases at Pickleberrypop August 6, 2019

That’s right!  New releases are live and the birthday party continues.  This week I created a layout using Nautical Summers by Jumpstart Designs.  I fell in love with the colors and ooh-la-la the gorgeous red flowers the minute I saw this collection and there are so many more fabulous elements too.  Although I’m running a couple of days late with this post the good news is IT’S STILL ON SALE!  So head over and pick up this beauty and load up your cart while you’re there.

Use It All Challenge and a Butterfly Story

This month’s Use It All Challenge is hosted by Bryony of Heartstrings Scrap Art.  Bryony created a mini kit for the challenge called Butterfly Garden.  You can get it here.  I’ve always been fascinated by butterflies.  I think their transformation is amazing!

I recently read a story about the struggle they go through during metamorphosis.  In the story, a little boy learns about the process first hand.  He also learns a valuable life lesson about struggles and how they help us develop.  You can read the story here.

I feel very confident in saying none of us love to go through struggles but they are for our benefit.  Every new challenge we go through is an opportunity to grow and mature.  Plus when you come to the next challenge you’re better prepared to face it.

Here is the layout I created with this free mini kit.

And here’s one final quote about butterflies that also applies to people,
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely consider the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” ~Author Unknown
