frame it.....with Butterflys

Hi everyone, do you ever have one of those days where its tooo cold to go outside or  literally to cold to do anything at all except turn on the heat and watch a good movie., well I had one of those days on Monday and being the person I am I cant just sit so I had this idea about making something to go in my family room and thought what better then making a picture frame using the gorgeous
 from La La Land Crafts...
So out came my Bigshot, Butterfly die, Chosen paper and off I started....
The dies cut beautifully and the hardest part was measuring/placing the 30 Butterflys out on the 12 x 12 bazzill page to evenly space them.
I am really happy with the result and it looks so much better in real life- ( it is always hard to get a good pic thru glass) but the colours of cream, red, brown and black look great and the wings are up off the page.
I gave each butterfly a different coloured hearts centre as I wanted the little heart to stand out from the butterfly. 
I have found the perfect spot for it on my cupboard with all my other photos, so if you have this Butterfly die, why not give it ago and make your own frame.
Thanks For Stopping By and Have Yourself a Great Day.xxx

Birthday....xox

Whoops.....for some reason this did not post so lets try again...
This week the theme over at  La La Land Crafts Inspiration week is
*****BIRTHDAYS**** 
On my card I used  HEART BALLOON LUKA , I stamped him a few times for the 3 balloons, added some presents, washi tape, splatter paint background and some machine stitiching. The sentiment is from my dymo labelller.

Happy Birthday

Hi evryone, Today we are celebrating The Octopode Factory Challenge 1st Birthday.... so what better then  cute lil "JOLEE" but instead of her holding only one birthday cake I used this CAKE and printed it off 5 times so I could use them as a big number 1.
I then also put some balloons in her hand as no birthday should be without all the frill and once again I used my washi tape, I confess I have a few rolls of this stuff- love it -a little machine stitching and my dymo labeller(rediscovered and found packed in box since moving house) to use for my sentiment.
If you pop on over to the blog HERE, Lily has some news to share.

Classic...

Hi everyone, Haven't we had some fabulous new images and Dies released from La La Land Crafts lately.
 Today at  "La-La Land "Inspirational Monday  the theme to inspire you is
*****Something For Dad*****
On my card  I have  used SITTING LUKA and he is available as both a rubber stamp and a digi-stamp, HERE and HERE.
I have teamed Luka up with a ute digi image from "Fred she Said" and coloured it to look like a Rusty old Ute- my inspiration for the colouring of my car this way came from Suzanne Dean.
