Fly, Bye Butterfly!!

Happy Saturday everyone! I'll keep this super short for you today, since my Mom is visiting and we're on our way to DC for the day to go to lunch & the theater. Hope you're having a great weekend so far :o) Thanks for all your lovely comments on my first video tutorials--I will reshoot them on Sunday & upload more for ya real soon.

For today's projects I used the Lockhart stamp "Chintz Butterfly", some Smooch metallic paints and Angel Wingz Shimmerz. The lil' notepad I got from the $1 bin at Michaels and just altered it with some of this fun dp from the DCWV "Citrus" stack. Such a pretty & fun gift to give to someone!

A close-up shows the Smooch paint I used in "Azure" and "Pumpkin" and then a nice coat of Shimmerz on top! Nice and sparkly!
Did you know you can paint metal & plastic embellishments with the metallic Smooch paints? Why, yes you can, lol! I painted this butterfly charm (find more charms here) to match my image--what a fun way to dress up your plain embellies!!

Hope you enjoyed today's projects and hope you're enjoying your weekend too!
