More Butterflies















Wow, it took a while to get a photo of this that showed the colours. This is today's colour challenge...Soft Sky, Purely Pomegranate and Basic Black. I've also used the "Try a New Technique Challenge" from yesterday which is the "Two Way Open Card". You can't tell that the "main" colour of the butterfly is Soft Sky because I used the blender pen. I may make this two-way-fold again with more vibrant colours because it's really quite easy to make.

Thank you for the thoughts and prayers....the band got back with no mishaps. They haven't heard yet of any standing they had...but it was more of a Festival than a Competition. Allison ended up missing a day of activities because she was sick...dehydrated! She'd gotten sick and was told to stay back at the hotel. She was pretty upset about it, but has gotten over it since. It meant she didn't get to do any shopping, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. She did however get pictures of the princesses she loves. Allison was especially glad to get to meet Belle again. The last time we were at Disneyland Allison had done a spring performance at school of Beauty and the Beast and she'd played Belle (10 years ago in grade 1)...so that princess is dear to her heart. She said she asked for a hug and got one. Lucky Girl.

Well, it's well past my bedtime, I have a lot to accomplish tomorrow but I'll try to get a post done....Taxes, (talk about deadlines!!!) dream up cards for the workshops on the weekend, watch America's Next Top Model with Allison, Teach....Yada, Yada, Yada.
Hey, have any of you read "The Yada Yada Prayer Group"? Awesome Book!!!
