Mademoiselle Butterfly

Just another 'because' scrapbook page!



* Because I really like the photo - what a cute dreamy look;
* Because I've had a bit of a thing about embroidery recently;
* Because I've been thinking about how pretty butterflies are;
* Because I can!

So I sat down in front of the telly last night and did some embroidery on this page. It was lucky I had something to put my mind to because even Josh Duhamel's fine form couldn't save last night's movie from being just plain bad! I would have been better of watching some Olympics.......those Jamaican boys can really RUN!

Anyway, back to the page: The colours are Elegant Eggplant, Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White. The stamp set is Stampin' Up!'s simply beautiful 'Bold Butterfly'. I have highlighted the butterflies with Crystal Effects...which you can probably see a bit better in this shot:



The mademoiselle is my beautiful pixie girl!

Have a great weekend!
Sam.

PS. Go Libby, Go Grant, Go Michael!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another great page Sam. The embroidery looks great. Can't believe you did that all by hand - the movie must have been a shocker,LOL
