Butterflies and a French Message Board


I love doing things "themed" with nature, especially in the Spring.
Little green shoots and buds have me all excited.
So when I was thinking about Debbie's Copy Cat Challenge,
I of course wanted it to be something that echoed the essence of Spring.



I keep this French Ribboned Message Board
on my computer desk with notes and photos and cards.
I had to edit it a little to make it photo-worthy,
then I added the little paper butterflies.


Just the right amount of Springy-ness.














My younger daughter loves to "embellish" and personalize her notes.
makes them more special...



Here is my inspiration,
Victoria Magazine, May 2001 cover.


Debbie's kicking off a week of Spring time fun.
Be sure and check out the other copy cats at the party.



And if you haven't entered the Give Away from

...and if you have an Etsy Shop or Online Boutique

xoxo,

  33. I love it Debra! the butterflies give it a cute dimension. Your daughter's note is so sweet. Now days most notes come by way of a text. It will be priceless. At least to mom.
