Butterfly Dreams

Come fly with me in my butterfly dreams!  Wouldn't you love to be so free?  I know I would!  Laze around amongst the flowers and simply flutter by!  I'm dreaming, I know!  ONE day left until the CHA trip to Vegas!  I'm so excited to meet the world of paper crafting designers, manufacturers and retailers!  Of course, it's not just going to be about that for the whole week!  Hubby and I are going to stay a bit longer and see the sights!  The gondola rides, the dueling pianist twins, the renown Blue Man Group, the Eiffel Tower and lights on the fountains at night!  This will be our very first trip together WITHOUT our children!  A new day is dawning!  I'll miss them, but I won't!  You know?

Mom, needing a break from the Florida heat anyway,  has flown in to care for the teen, house and pets . . . not to mention visit her relatives here as well so all is good!  Can't wait!

Today I want to share one of my favorite Shape EZ templates, the Butterfly sold at Whimsy Stamps.  The amount of possibilities with this template is staggering!  You can make it super simple, or really elaborate!  I think I've done the later here but some would say they could add even more??  Yikes!  I think enough of my inventory has been used, what do you think?

This was featured in the Whimsy Stamps Inspirations Magazine along with hundreds of other beautiful projects created by the Whimsy Design Teams and you, our fellow crafters.  For a peek at the free online issues click here.
