(I have a confession. I had my middle daughter bring me the chick. They were an after Easter purchase that she took possesion of and had stashed in her room. But, that is the only thing I had to get off my lazy butt to get. Oh wait, I didn't even get up for that. L-A-Z-Y. My middle name. Today anyway.)
I got inspired by this challenge to take the frame and the stack of retina-scorching pink papers of all types that I'd been stacking (yet ANOTHER project) and some paint, some decoupage, lots of punching butterfly shapes, gluing, and VOILA! A frame that (to me) screams happy and fun! I don't know if I'll put an inspirational word in the frame, a quote, or maybe a photo that I'll change out. But it makes ME happy and I like it! And I actually used stuff I could reach from where I was perched.Amazingly, no carpal tunnel from punching all of these little butterflies!
My other project, using items nearby is my "Love Cat" ATC. I had the stamp sitting there since the Cinema Saturday challenge for "To Catch a Thief" and I'd put the stamp aside - it just wasn't inspiring me for the challenge. But with all the hot pink scraps and the ribbon and punches there, it was easy to put together a cute little ATC.
