The Butterfly Whisperer

I saw a challenge on SB.com to use butterflies on a layout and already had this layout partially planned.....you know you have 3 or 4 going on in your brain at once!! All I needed was the motivation to get it started.....

.....so I did and I finished it in one day....it's not very often that ever happens!! This large paper flower looks alot better in real life but I found it hard to photograph...as usuall!

The pretty paper is from the Baby to Bride collection by Graphic45 such fabulous quality cardstock to work with.

The white butterfly and stunning corner flourish are made by Twiddleybitz and kindly sent to me from Carol who is a Twiddleybitz Designer......more about them on my next post.

In total I squeezed 8 butterflies onto the layout and the 2 real ones in her hair makes 10!!

Love and little wings

I see the scrabble letters again, is this now going to be your signature. I love butterflies and you really have made the most of them here. Inspiring as always. Which reminds me after setting a challenge to the crafty group, I must utilise my own butterfly - which is long overdue. Maybe this will make me move with it.
