Butterfly Garden ...

oh i wish i had a butterfly garden ... a sanctuary for those winged beauties ... living in a townhouse i have very little garden space, but i do back onto forest, with a pretty bit of natural wildflowers at its edge, so i do see the occasional winged beauty.

When Pink Paislee came out with their "butterfly garden" line, i just had to buy it ... it is full of butterflies and faeries and beautiful colours.  It almost makes up for the fact that i don't have my own butterfly garden.

I have made several projects with it that i have posted previously and i finally finished off my stash of these papers by making some pretty projects ... this line is so pretty, i might need more ... the papers are kind of timeless!!!

 ahhh ... yes ... yours truly ... This was my favourite piece of paper ...

I created a fan ... every Royal needs a fan ... and if your Prince Andrew .....  I'll let you fill in the blanks


There are also some beautiful B sides of the papers ... i love all of these soft colours


The soft colours look great edged in white paint ... kind of gives your projects a shabby chic feel


A little cigar box to store sweet things ... i made this for a friend ... she picked the papers and wanted it simple!
just a tiny bit of bling and a few rosettes to sweeten the inside.  this is lined with felt.


A tiny little box ... the flower on the box is coloured with inks and i added some sugar type glitter

Inside the box, a tiny photo album ... this one is going to a blog buddy, sometime soon!

I had loads of fun working with these so so pretty papers ... and thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek!

Peace, love & paper ~Jo

These projects are beautiful, Jo.

I love butterflies too. Even though I've planted butterfly friendly flowers, all the idjits 'round these parts never land. Just this week I saw one flitting around touching down on every green thing in the yard. I think it had brain damage.
