Butterflies and Blogs Birthday Blog Hop

Good Morning and Welcome to Butterflies & Blogs Birthday Blog Hop hosted by Laura over at www.makinprettythings.com

If you came to me from the talented Theresa at www.thescrapbookingqueen.com then you are in the right place but if not please head on over here to start with Laura so you can get all the info on her huge giveaway!!!

Here is my butterfly project...

A FRAME

I used a frame I got at Michaels and DCWV Mariposa collection along with some bling, gold paint, and prima flowers
For the flowers I did spray them with Tattered Angels and then I made sure to over dry them with my heat gun so they had that burnt effect
A close up of the birdcage I cut from the paper

For the birthday part of it...Laura is celebrating the end of her 20's

I made this card for my goddaughter but I was short on time so I tried to keep it simple and fast.

I hope you like my projects and please leave a comment!!!

Your dad was a year younger than me...so sad. I lost my mom when I was 16 years old and even though I have been scrapping for 7 years, I did my first layout of her a month ago and I cried the whole time I made it! I am now the age she was when she died....

Anyway, thank you for having this blog hop, I have become a follower and I wish you all the best!

So, Christine Real please check your email and thank you so much for following in my first Blog hop hosted by me!! Hope to see you in the next one.
