Basic Butterfly

Whew, been a busy week for me. We did a quick spur of the moment visit with family, since the kids were out of school an extra day. Sadly, Trey spent most of it sick, ended up going to a Dr out of town, and he has strep. Bad momma I am, thought it was a sinus infection, so I was holding off taking him to a Dr until we got back home. I will have spent 25 of the 31 days in Jan giving antibiotics to one of my kids! January has been rough! Than we get home, and I'm all ready for nice rest in my bed, and Gabi got sick last night. So, both kids are home today resting. Crossing fingers, both are well enough for school tomorrow.
Today is Flutter by Wed's on Danni's blog. I do like to play along. I felt a little creative and went out of my normal comfort zone. My ILS, who are wonderful folks, spoiled me for my birthday, so I have 6 new Nesties sets. Not all are from them, but we're not telling hubby that! LOL! We did tell him I purchased all of them, and he told me to get a job! One new set is the paisley set. I made my butterfly wings from the nesties. The camera isn't here, and the scanner is washing out the background paper. I used Mellow from Basic Grey, and there's a cloud paper in there, but the scanner doesn't like it! I might change out the photo later if I can capture it better on the camera. The sentiment is from Beautiful day in the new TAC catty. Solid cardstock is Ripe avocado from PTI, and all the sheets of paper are brushed with close to cocoa SU ink.
