Grabbing a chance!

We seem to be packing a lot into our days at the moment - packing being the operative word, we are off on our travels again very soon. Yesterday I hopped off to meet friends for coffee, so lovely to catch up! Another friend is coming here for coffee today then it's grandchildren time tonight so I grabbed a few minutes to play in one of my journals yesterday. 

The page had started life as a mop up then had some stencilling and stamping added so it was time to finish the page!

This was how it looked before I started yesterday
I had a lovely little girl image taken from a set of cards I bought when a shop was closing down ages ago. Some Spring Greens die cut leaves in dark blue! Scraps to make the wings and stamp the butterflies onto.
A little more stamping - as you can see my favourite Attic Treasures has been used - quite a lot - again! The quote is from Tim's Words For Thought.

Thanks for looking, Chris

So, so beautiful, Chris... the background was already pretty stunning, but you found the perfect way to finish the page. The little girl is enchanting, and the quote is so perfect for you! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Artistic Stamper.
