I just came from a blog where Julie had taken old silver spoons and altered them with glitter, ribbon, pictures of roses and other things. I fell in love with them and will have to give it a try. Those ladies at craft secrets are the bees knees!

This a book I made for fun. It's full of glitter and interactive pages. It's all about butterflies and how they relate to life. I used a chip board book I found at Michaels for $l.00 as the base and K and Co. paper and some of the butterflies and flowers. I found the quotes on line. There are brads and pearls and fastners and tassels that I have no idea where I got them! You know how that goes. I buy when it's on sale and stash it until I have a project that calls for it. The frames are things I'm making for our church coffee tables. Hope you enjoy these projects. Sorry it takes me so long to put up new things but with working full time and still trying to figure out how to use this blog I don't have much time! I used Elegant Edges from Cricut for a lot of my cuts on this. The big butterfly is from Picturesque.

I'm so thrilled to have followers! Thank you all for your lovely comments. I'll be putting on more pictures later this week end. Making cards is one of my favorite past times. I sometimes just don't bother with the house work ect. when a knew idea hits me! You fellow crafters know what I mean! LOL! I make cards for soldiers with the Cricut group and Cricut card fairies. I also make center pieces for my church coffee tables using my scrapbook and card making skills. I enjoy that also and will have to post pictures when I get the next group done. I don't know about the rest of you but can't think of any thing more fun than creating something from all the scraps of paper, ribbon, and flowers except maybe shopping for all those things!

Sometimes I think I just need to sit here and be calm and then I can figure out how to do things on the computer! I'm always in such a hurry! Since I work full time I don't have a lot of time and there is soooo much I want to do. Ideas are always floating around and I never seem to get to all of them or I run out of energy! Any thanks to my friends who always encourage me!
I think I finally figured out how to post pictures. I know sometimes I'm a little dense! The cards I made with the lace and flowers are my favorite type to do. I used my Cricut machine and carts and pre-made flowers, added a little ribbone, pearls, jewels and inked the edges. This is probably my favorite past time although I do scrapbook some and I love to decorate my apartment.
