but anyho. i think you can still get the drift... well i hope.. just wanted to also add how this one started.. i said to myself.. self lets do some scrappin..so went into my room and the leftovers were sitting on my desk so i thought why not.. so i cut and misted the kraft grabbed some white cardstock and stuck them down, added the strip of sass and then punched and added the butterflies.. so wallah scraps used..woohoo.. then i just had to find photos and stuff to go with it.. oh and i had made the WINGS before.. i was goin to make them into a ATC but they were screaming at me to put them on her.. Holy crap i just rabbled on abit there ... so i will stop talking now.....
