I Love my Butterfly Girl

My kids are home sick again today!  BLAH...  I'm hoping tomorrow we can get back to preschool because Mommy is tired of looking at the walls of this house!  You would think since they are not feeling well that they would not be on their normal path to destruction through the house, but no...I am not that lucky!  The longer we are here, the worse it gets!  It looks like our tree tornado spread into the house today!

Well, since I haven't had to run anywhere, I've taken advantage of the extra time by doing a few scrapbook pages.  This is one of the pages I made this morning and as you can see, my sewing machine received some attention again!  She has been feeling neglected for the past few years (since Cricut moved in) so I thought since she is out, I am going to use her! 

 This is the picture that will be taking up ownership on this page.  I know it is printed but I have not been able to locate it!  I hope I didn't scrapbook it because I've already journaled this page!  My oldest daughter, like most little girls, LOVES butterflies.  She however has a very special connection to them.  Her Native American name is Memengwaa which is Butterfly in Ojibwe.  There is more to this story but that will be for another day.  She has a loving compassion for these creatures and they seem to know it.  For being such a young child she has a very gentle touch with them and can often attract one to her.

Love the colors of this paper!! I am always amazed when people sew on their pages -- That is a talent I do not have, and I would be afraid of stitching the page to my arm or something!! :) When you find that pic of your daughter, it WILL be perfect on that page!! :) TFS, and thanks for visiting me today too!! :)
