Butterflies and Flourishes
When I saw the sketch I immediately thought of a butterfly (surprise, surprise!) and the butterfly trial subbing in for the rays. I started off with this fabulous Cosmo Cricket DT and my colours came from there. I double layered the lacy circle nesties and added my butterfly. Then I realized there was no way my butterfly trail (I used this wonderful flourish from the There She Goes Flourish set) could match up properly unless my butterfly was flying sideways or downward, so the butterfly is flying properly and the butterfly trail works right where it is, right (wink, wink). Phew!! I can't believe I've finished all the Verve sketches for this month so early - feels good :)
This weekend is a special one as my son and some of the other Grade 5/6 Youth are doing a God Rod performance to Arise My Love at our church's Easter performances. He has the lead and I had tears streaming down my face at the rehearsal last night. All the kids did an amazing job with the choreography and my little guy did a great job as the lead and has quite the stage presence the little rotter! Proud mommy moment - happy sigh...
It's going to be a crazy busy weekend with two Easter performances and then a big Easter dinner on Monday to play sues chef for (hubby is the chef in the family and we are having lamb and ham), so I'll take this opportunity to wish you all a blessed Easter weekend. Blessings.
