Just when....

Good Morning! Happy Friends with Flair! If you haven't had a chance to see all the wonderful creations, please stop by Unity for the full list of friends! I'm also entering this in the All Things Unity Challenge to use butterflies.

I had so much fun creating this hanging for my "tiny clothespin" wall frames! You can see the post about my frames here. I just bought the stamp set, Quote Bundle Pack, and I loved this sentiment. I also remembered that one of my Unity kits, What Matters Most, had this grouping of butterflies. I decided to nestle the butterflies into the left side of the quote. Then I paper pieced all the butterflies. Lots of detail cutting, but I really enjoy that sometimes. I just get lost in the process:) After the butterflies were done I accented the quote with yellow pearls. I used the June 2011 Sketch for You to Try as my LO for the rest of the hanging. A flourish, a string of pearls and I was done!
