Ugly Bug Ball

The photo that started the whole idea, I am often asked how my mind works!! I am just mad lol
Whoops got a bit of a private moment there, sorry bugs :-)
I so love that film "Summer Magic" made in 1963!! with Burl Ives singing this song, showing my age now... lol. It started with some photo's I took in the garden of the millions of Cinnebar Caterpillars that have sprung everywhere and in one of the shots there was a beetle and a caterpillar together on a flower.

In the song he sings "once a lonely caterpillar sat and cried, to a sympathetic beetle by his side" and I just had to make this book using them. I have added some of the other shots too. I cannot get this song out of my head now :-( its one to keep going round in your head at bedtime and you know how annoying that is.

Oh nearly forgot to say papers are Basic Grey "Lime Rickey", 3d adhesive vellum bugs, ribbons, gems, leaf punch, buttons and inks.
