A Creative Evening with Butterflies!

First off, this is a layout I did for the Method Playground Paper Pleating Challenge! It also fits in really well with Heather's challenge over at AMR to use decorative borders! I love that!

And best of all...it shows off my wonderful husband! I love that man!

This is the other project I have to share with you! I am so excited about it!!! I got this Martha Stewart specimen box on clearance several months ago and I've had this vision for it ever since. Well, tonight the pieces came together and my vision has come to fruition! I used Pink Paislee for the background paper, Cosmo Cricket for the butterflies misted with Glimmer mist for a gorgeous shimmer, and American Crafts Thickers for the title! Popped up the butterflies (Martha Stewart punch that I just got this weekend!) with some foam dots and VOILA! It is PERFECT! I love it!

I have projects to share with you! I'm pretty excited about that! LOL!

Now...the confession. I was so supposed to be working on my Christmas cards tonight and I SO didn't do that at all! But this is where the inspiration led me, so that is where I went! Hmmm....I'm looking at this specimen box wondering if I could find a really pretty 1.5 inch satin ribbon in a deep orange rust color like the one in the paper to go around the outside of the box....hmmmm....that might be REALLY pretty!

Well, that's all for now, folks! We can chat more later! Have an awesome Friday!!!
