I hope to stay in touch with old friends,and I have made many new friends with this blog. Scrapbooking has become my new passion.I was introduced to the hobby by my youngest daughter.She went on a trip to South Africa and came home to Greece with a collection of papers ,flowers, brads and glue.SO the mania began,it is a mania that gives me such pleasure,creating gives one a great sense of achievement....

I am back again and no the house is not spick and span yet...its still in a big mess!!
But I took a breather and created some butterflies here they are....
I used Core'dinations Black Magic Cardstock.I cut and embossed with the Cuttlebug Combo die I then sanded the black off, added some Stickles and Glossy Accents. The one that is a bit onk has a splash of Adirondak alcohol ink on it too. Once they were dry I beaded the little abdomens with fine wire and beads.
To make these little butterflies I stamped on some scrap paper with a little stamp that I designed and carved myself, its not easy to get two symmertical sides when carving! I then used Stickles and Glossy Accents on these too.....when they dried I quickly cut them out as you can see.
