Treasure the Moment

Have you ever seen the movie "RED"?  Well if you have this pictures reminds me of John Malkovich with his pink pig.  "I'm getting the pig!"  It looks like the pig got my son in this pic!  lol!!

 I have just about crafted my way through this incredibly beautiful Blue Fern collection.  I have so enjoyed it.  Just look at this fabulous Blue Fern chipboard title piece.  So easy to work with.  I used gesso then inked and finished with this intense silks blue.

 This is a handmade flower.  Simply gorgeous.   Wish I had made it but it was given to me and I thought it would be perfect for the Berry 71 Blue challenge this month.  I must add that I did make the leaves myself out of scrap paper and lacy ribbon.
 A close up of this beautiful flower.
 I just love adding butterflies to my layouts.  I have found a new love in masking!
Thank you for stopping by to see what the papers are saying today.  I hope to see you follow me on this blog.  I am so near my goal of 50!  Wishing each and everyone of you a very blessed Easter.  He is Risen!
