You Make Me Smile


Hi everyone!  I had a very unusual evening...not one person was in my house last night except ME!  Woohoo!  Stamping time!  I actually had some relaxing creative time, using the As You See It sketch:

And the beautiful colors from Create with Connie and Mary:

CCMC400

I finally ordered the Butterfly Basics set....not sure what I was waiting for, but I was convinced that I didn't need another butterfly set, LOL!  But isn't it pretty?  I paired it with Awesomely Artistic; they just were made for each other!  I stamped a whole bunch of their images on top of the photo "frame" as well as behind it; added a couple of different washi tapes; put some vellum in the corners (which are a wee bit difficult to see) and tied it all up with some Lost Lagoon baker's twine and a really old sentiment from Small Sayings.  Oooh, so much fun to create!  




Thanks for visiting today!

Cassidy made some playdoh cookies and sandwiches, and had a wee impromptu tea party/picnic on the patio:



She had to cut up the "sandwich" so her baby could eat it!



Enjoy your day!

  3. Oh how beautiful, LeAnne! What a fabulous collage and you slam-dunked both of the challenges. What a treasure a little alone time is, isn't it? Glad you were able to enjoy it.

  4. Beautiful card LeAnne it's a great interpretation of both challenges. And of course you did need another butterfly stamp set. You can never have too many butterfly stamps really can you? :-) Thanks for joining us over at Create with Connie and Mary this week! :-)

  5. Beautiful collage card LeAnne. You always do such a great job with collage cards. Yes, these butterflies are so pretty. I like the little fiber knot you and bits of washi tape you've added.
    So happy to see that Cassidy can actually have a picnic outside there. We got a bunch more snow last night - yuck- can you believe it::!!! It's April after all!!
    Wishing you a great weekend.
