Fabulous Purse

I was looking at one of my favorite couture invitation websites and I as so surprised to see they also have created some gorgeous purses. Can you believe how beautiful it is? I have never seen anything like them. It was created by Sherri Weese of Simply Unique Invitations.

Go to Simply Unique's Blog  to find out about it. This purse is apart of their giveaway. I hope I win it.
Also, she is selling them on Etsy www.etsy.com/shop/SherriWeeseDesigns . 
I don't have any formal affairs to attend right now but I would carry it around proudly to shop, visit folks and even around the house! :)

Just had to share this purse and I feel inspired by artistic work like this. Thanks for creating it Sherri!

Butterfly Layout

As most of you know, I am a card maker and rarely make layouts. But there was a challenge over at The Moments that caught my attention. I got this new butterfly stamp by Jenni Bowlin and have wanted to play with it. I started using it on some cards but it didn't quite work. So then I had an idea for a layout.

I loved stamping and then decided to heat emboss with black glitter embossing powder. Loved that! I was embossing so much I could emboss all night. :) Plus I had fun with this because I got to use some of those gold tissue paper flowers. I love that glimmer mist, too.

This layout means a lot to me because it features my dear hubby and I. We are in the process of trying to do some new things in life and need some encouragement. So I want to put this picture up on the wall so we can remember what we are to do in this life, FLY!
