Flutter By Wednesday # 111 - Unforgettable...


Good morning friends! It's time to flutter with another Flutter By Wednesday challenge! Today's challenge is open, but be sure to add a butterfly, fairy or an angel on your NEW creation. For today's creation, I decided to do a layout and incorporate both butterflies and a fairy. You see, today is my last day as a FBW DT member. So, what better way to end my 'unforgettable' journey than to include TWO of Danni's favorite things! Before I get to my creation, I'd like to first send out a HUGE thank you to Danni and the FBW team. You've been such an inspiration to me and even though I'm not on the new DT, I'll be playing along as often as I can and stalking those blogs! LOL! Danni, thank you for an amazing journey on my first DT, it was a blast and I look fwd to trying out next DT call, when I can relax and slow down a little :)

Now, onto my layout. My sister and I are 8 yrs apart (yep, me being the oldest) and growing up, we always gave each other 'sister' things and these are 2 of my keepsakes that I wanted to be sure to preserve and what better way than to scrapbook them! So, I took the one out of the frame and here's what I came up with. I love the way they turned out and it's something that I can treasure forever. Thanks Lee Ann!

So, now it's your turn to flutter over to the FBW blog and play along! Check out the new blog design while you're there and be sure to grab a blinky! Also, be sure to congratulate the new DT. Can't wait to see what you create this week!! Also, just a note, FBW will be taking a break for the month of June and will return in July...click here for details!

Karen, what a wonderful, sentimental and thoughtful tribute to your sister! My sis is 10 years older than me, so it touched my heart. It was a pleasure working with you on the FBW team, and I look forward to visiting your blog and seeing your amazing creations in the future!

These are stunning Karen. How sweet to have these sister things to give. Right now I have 5 other sisters spening a week together at my place (some are local and some are out of country), but none of them like to do craft except me, but we are so close though :o)
Hugs,
Cabio
