Butterfly Wishes!

Happy Monday everyone!

We are getting closer and closer to completing the house! Thank goodness! Jason finally finished the paving stones around the pool and I built 13 fence sections this weekend. So that feels great to finally have that all completed! Now most of what we have left is inside stuff. Can't tell you how great that feels!

Last night we headed over to Tracy's grandmother's for Tracy's 30th birthday party. It was so much fun and the food was amazing!!! Izzy blew bubbles and played with the other kids. She had a little bit of a hard time understanding that you don't put the wand actually on your mouth or in it. Talk about washing your mouth out with soap! And she said the funniest thing on the way over there. We have to drive through some major road construction to get to South City and as we were driving by this large pile of dirt, Izzy says, "Dirt Mommy! Dirt Mommy!" I said, "Yep there is a pile of dirt." She looks at it for a minute and then says, "Have to clean it." Thanks a lot, Iz! Like I don't have enough to do already! LOL!

Now, since it is Monday that means we have another great Little Paper Shop Challenge in store for you! The great Cindy Haffner has another wonderful sketch this week and we have a great new guest designer in store for you! Please join us in welcoming our AMAZING new Guest Designer for Little Paper Shop, Ann Kranitz! Ann has been wow-ing us with her beautiful blog, Stamp with Me, for some time now and we were thrilled when she agreed to join us for the next three months here at LPS. WELCOME ANN!

I just love the great layout on this sketch and the different geometric shapes! I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted to use this great butterfly. I started this card by first stamping the butterfly from {Butterflies} by Little Paper Shop on white card stock and colored it in with my copics. Following this week's sketch, I layered on two different blue card stocks and white card stock along with some paper from Heidi Grace. I cut out my butterfly using my nesties and popped her off the front. I finished the card off by adding some white ribbon and lots of little rhinestones to make it look like the butterfly just flew in.

Would you care to join us this week in playing along? We hope so! One lucky winner will be randomly chosen to win a {Beary Best Katie} stamp set! Good luck and we can't wait to see your adorable creations! Remember, you can submit a card, layout, even a 3D altered item for our challenges so get crafty, everyone!

Leave a comment on this postthe LPS post letting us know you played along, and if you upload to SCS, PCP or any other public galleries please use keyword LPSC27. Thanks and have fun!
