Hello and thank you for visiting!

I don't know about you, but I am still trying to get used to the new blogger interface. Some of the updates are fun, but my posts may look a little funny for the next while until I figure it all out!

A co-worker asked me to make her some thank you cards and this is one of them. I was inspired by two different challenges that were looking for butterflies - Our Creative Corner and  the current Tuesday Trigger in the Moxie Fab World. I also used the sketch at The Paper Players - you will be seeing more of this one!

I had some fun with my Tattered Angels glimmer mist...gotta do that more often!
A close up of the butterfly, punched out of an old book, and a shot of the inside.

I just thought I'd share a few shots from our park excursion this afternoon. The boys had a few friends over and were looking forward to some soccer at the park. First we stopped at the playground and I hopped on the swing while they played. I had my camera of course and snapped a few shots. Everyone needs a good swing once in awhile - feels so good!

And, since the younger two boys decided they wanted to be the "photographers" and sit on the sidelines rather than play soccer with the older crew, I was assigned the position of goaltender. Hey, at least I was getting some exercise! We played two on two and stopped counting when we were down 4-0.

Doodlepants set up his friends for some gaming prior to leaving for the park...

 I hope you've had a fabulous weekend. What have you been up to?
Take care,
Shanna :)
