You know me and butterflies...

We go waaaay back. :) I love them!

They really do work for so many different occasions. This one is an Extra Large Butterfly Punch by Stampin' Up! and works for dressing up an Easter layout.
One last project for Chickaniddy Crafts this month. I had fun with their Twirly Girly line! Here I wanted to use the springy colors for an Easter layout. I incorporated the "family" sticker into my journaling. It reads,
"Now that we are in Colorado, 
we are certainly going to miss the holidays with the Flanders,
esp. Easter when we all got together, second cousins 
(Lou and Laurie's family as well) for the egg hunt, pinata, etc. 
It's not quite the same without...FAMILY." 

We had a quiet Easter this past weekend and missed being with all of our relatives, so I had to scrap this photo of all of the Flanders from last Easter. Funny how photos mean so much more to you after some time and things have changed, isn't it?
The photo was printed on a 4x6" photo paper, but the actual photo is 3.5 x 3.5", so I'd have room on the end of the photo paper to trim the corners off and turn it into a tag to match the tag from the Twirly Girly line.
Stop by the Chickaniddy Crafts blog for a full supply list and more details. And be sure to check out all of Chickaniddy Crafts' products!! Thank you, Heidi and Pam, for having me as a guest this month! xo

Inspired by a card sketch...

With just a few supplies, you can make a layered card like this that looks like you spent a ton of time on it. Working with a particular collection from a scrapbooking manufacturer really helps make the process quick, because everything coordinates in the line. For example, this Twirly Girly line by Chickaniddy Crafts...
All you need to make a card is a few items that coordinate to create a background and a focal point, and it was so easy to find pieces I loved in this collection!

Stop over to the Chickaniddy Crafts blog to read more about how their card sketch inspired the little bits and pieces I chose for this project. Thanks for reading today! Come by again soon!
