 Hello everyone,

Back from my road trip to Auckland NZ  after seeing the fabulous "Crique Du Soleil" and a very eventful adventure with trains and buses in a huge city compared to mine..but we made and I think we became pro's in the end, jumping from station to station, bus to bus in the middle if the night, so much fun..

I must admit I have not done a lot of crafting since being back home, but finished this one I started before I left..

It was nearly built before I took the first picture, but lovely new yellow papers
new flower dies, crafty postage stamps and corrugated card board from an old box..

Also some Altenew flowers already made in my tray..

Gold die cut butterflies..

Dimension, yes please..

Those butterflies sure do sparkle, but still it needed splatters,
and it got it, with a vengeance.

And there she is all done with little wooden hearts scattered around..

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..
