Butterflies are Free Blog Hop - H2H Challenge

Have you ever watched a butterfly just casually meandering and fluttering by - it looks so peaceful, tranquil and free! They get to land where they want, smell all the flowers and just let the world pass them by. The colors of the butterfly are magnificent with seeming to be no two alike!!!!

Today, we are going to be fluttering with our butterflies and takin you on journies whether it be sniffing the flowers, watching the world pass us by or just showing off our magnicient colors!!! A nice lazy day, so, let get fluttering.....

If you stopped by to visit me today, I really appreciate it but would love for you to see all the butterflies in our hop. The butterfly journey starts with Lynne at Her Craftiness ( If you fluttered here by Inga's blog then you are on the right mark to sniff the flowers.

We have a wonderful sponsor today for our Butterflies Are Free - Susan Bermudez, Creative Memories representative.

Susan is so very happy to be able to sponsor Miss Lynne's Butterflies are Free Blog Hop. She is offering $10 worth of product from Creative Memories. You can pick what you like from her website: Good luck and Happy Scrappin'.

To be eligible, just leave a remark on each stop along the way and if you aren't already a follower, would love for you to follow also!!!

I have two projects for you today... the first is a layout I did about a month ago. I just love the paper and it called out to me to put glossy accents on everything. When I think about butterflies I think of my Mom and love so I knew I had to add butterflies to this layout. I haven't found the perfect picture to go with this layout so I chose to leave it without a pic. I added butterflies that are made with my MS butterfly punch.. The paper is Bo Bunny Alora and I got it from Up The Street my fav local scrapbook store!

AND my second project is a card that I made for the HEART 2 HEART challenge this week... I used all CTMH paper - the challenge was to use polka dots and stripes.. This paper from CTMH and was one of my fav's a few years back..I got a lot of it and its almost gone so I will be very sad. The flourish is a Cherry Lynn Die that my youngest DD got me for Mother's Day... I also have a MS Butterfly Punch around the page coming ..I am sad it is not here for this project...

Check out the H2H Challenge Blog!

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my butterflies and thank you for not catching me and letting me fly around free. I would love for you to stop and visit Michele's blog to see what kind of butterfly enchantment that has been created for you to see next.
