A new scrapbooking store opened up in my town and I am SO excited that I don't have to drive 15 minutes to the nearest city to get adhesive! ;o) They have lots of cute stuff, from beautiful papers, to fun embellishments. I bought some manly papers to continue scrapbooking Cole's races, and I found lovely vintage ribbon for my new found love of vintage inspired cards. I also found these beautiful butterfly and dragonfly charms by Paislee Press. Butterflies are all the rage right now, and as soon as I saw these charms I snatched them up.
This one was a little labor intensive. I took some chocolate chip scraps of paper, distressed the edges with a hobby blade, and then hand stitched them together. For the hydrangea, I stamped the image in early espresso and sponged on perfect plum and old olive, then crinkled up the paper and tore the edges and then dabbed it in early espresso ink. I think I'm a little obsessed with this crumb cake paper. ;o)
