Pretty Butterfly

I got this [My Acrylic Album] acrylic butterfly album for my birthday. I don't make mini albums that frequently, so I wanted to come up with something else to do with it.

What I did for this project was take the front and back cover and adhere them together to make a full butterfly shape. I painted the back with pink glitter paint and white paint then stamped the flower image on the front. I added some Cosmo Cricket Blackboard and Prima bling. I cut Macy's picture out and used her as the butterfly body with some Loosie Fibers underneath, then added her name.

I had a difficult time getting a pic of this. I just couldn't get focused on her body no matter what I tried! This is my best attempt! I think it turned out cute! I added a ribbon to the top so she can hang it in her room!


We had some snow on Wednesday so the kids had off of school. We went to our friends dad's farm and sledding all afternoon! It was a blast!! I'll share pics of that soon!!

Have a great weekend!!
