Butterflies & Blogs Birthday Hop

Hi!

Welcome to the Butterflies & Blogs Birthday Hop!  First of all I want to thank our host, Laura of Makin Pretty Things for putting together this hop!  If you arrived here from Jennifer's blog, then you're on the right track.  If you just popped in to say hello, you really want to start at the beginning so you don't miss a thing!  Now you didn't hear this from me, but this hop is for Laura's birthday, she's turning 29 today!  That's why she's having 29 blogs in the hop!  So because it's huge hop, I'm going to let you get to it!

everyone's project had to have butterflies!


this card was inspired by a card I saw in Paper Crafts.  I have no idea what month, because I cut them up!
Recipe:
French Manor Cricut Cartridge
tower cut 2.07 x 3.00
with florish to match layer
Lacy Labels Cricut Lite Cartridge
butterflies cut 1.05 x 1.71
Holiday Cakes Cartridge
scallop border cut 4.17 x .75
Scrappy Moms Stamps ~ Everyday Greetings

Paper: Teresa Collins, Bazzill, Stampin Up
button, ribbon, twine, stickles

I know there is blog candy along the way so make sure you leave a comment for everyone!

Your next stop is Anita!  I've added the whole list just incase you get lost :)
