I wish we had some good Mothers in Government as they would not steel our children's childhood and take their school fields and butterfly meadows! Actor Michael Sheen has very kindly sent the children a letter of support and fairy artist Josephine Wall has sent us a lovely butterfly greetings card in the hope it changes the Councils mind in selling the field and replace it with houses. The scary thing is that the water board report mentions that if they keep building then water pipes could burst and our lovely little village could end up under water.
I wonder if it is possible for a scrapbook company to sponsor some layouts and raise the money to save our school butterfly meadow? Can you imagine the Councils face when you hand over the money and keep the field for the community. That thought brings a slightly warm glow all over as men just have to win at everything no matter the cost.
The butterflies in my layout are photographs we took on the school butterfly meadow this year. Funny thing is that the Holly Blue I was chasing around on sports day and trying to capture on film was one my friend managed to photograph. And she is scared silly of them. A week before I had to save her from the Tortoiseshell butterfly, or save the butterfly, ha ha.
I managed to photograph what looks like the Lulworth Skipper which is a rare butterfly.
The little fairy being take up and away by butterflies is one I created based on fairy artists painting called Up and Away. I adore the photograph of my little girl and her friend looking at two butterflies on the butterfly meadow.
Seriously how can men destroy something so special? Especially when butterflies are dying out.
I have not quite mastered the art of creating scrapbook images so looking forward to learning from my new arty friends.
