What Started It All

Today is going to be pretty crazy around here. Do I always say that? This is the last crazy day for a while! Thank goodness! I am working on a scrapbook for a friend and need to finish it up by tomorrow afternoon. Once this project is finished I can officially relax! All of my big PTO responsibilities are over and all of the big extra projects are finished...30 projects for SU a couple of weeks ago! Holy heck! That was a lot! One more big one. :)

Last night I decided to sneak in a little fun staming. What better way than to participate in a Splitcoast challenge. The oh so sweet, Jeanne, is hosting the limited supply challenge. For this one you need to create a holiday card...any holiday will do....using blue (at least 3/4 of the card should be blue) and only one! embellishment. Wowzers! For this one I pulled out my first Unity love, Butterfly Beauty. This is the stamp that I very first saw from Unity and I fell in LOVE instantly!
LOVE those butterflies! They are big and fabulous! The paper for this is October Afternoon. I also used PTI's Ripe Avocado cs and ribbon. I colored the butterfly with copics and then went over it again with Shimmerz.
I bet you're wondering what the heck kind of holiday card is this! Well, this was the perfect challenge! I still have a list of obscure holidays from this month Dirty Dozen to all this month! The holiday I chose is 'Reach As High As You Can' day. What an awesome holiday! I thought that both the butterfly and the sentiment were perfect for this day....which is celebrated on April 14th. I actually think this is one we should celebrate every day!
Off to work on that scrapbook. Hope you are all having a great day!
