CR84FN 35

What a week this has been.  First, I want to tell all of you thank you for all of your kind and generous comments you left me on my Christmas card.  I had to go out of town to Atlanta on Wednesday for my Uncle's funeral.  He died suddenly from a Massive Heart Attack.  My mom was from the Atlanta area and that is where my Nanny and Papa are buried as well as my Aunt and now my uncle.  I have not been back there since I was 16.  It is safe to say that I think it has been 20 years to the month.  I was feeling bad for myself when my mom passed away last month because all I have left is my dad and brother.  Well, my poor cousin has nobody now.  He is 28 years old without a  mom, dad, or siblings now.  I have learned one very valuable is too short.  Enjoy everything you have and the people in your life.  You never know what tomorrow will bring.

Was that a bit deep for you?  Sorry.  I will get to the point and show you what I have to share.Edit HTML

I added a little glitter to the inside of the butterfly wings.  This set from PTI is one of my favorites called Flutterby Friend.  You can make all kinds of cute little scenes with this one.  I felt like I had to keep this one a little more CAS so I didn't make it look overdone.  Know what I mean?

Here is the beautiful graphic to inspire you this week at CR84FN.


Thanks so much for stopping by,

Oh Heather, I am so sorry to hear about your uncle passing away. I lost my Mom this year and yes, it really brings home how on your own and mortal you are. I am now looking at my loved ones with totally different eyes, intent to be as much for them as I can possibly manage. :)
Being creative is a great gift though - one of which you have received in abundance!
