Every year for the past 5 years we have attended Burgers and Butterflies to help remember our little girl Kristen. We release butterflies to help us remember our little ones that are not with us any longer. I am not sure if we will be going to this anymore as we have moved.
This is the first year Catherine was aware of the butterflies around her, and one little butterfly stayed on top of her head for about 30 minutes, we like to think it was her sister giving her kisses.
The journaling states "Cat at burgers and butterflies Aug 2013 at Kim's house. One little butterfly stuck on top of her head for a good 30 minutes. We like to think it was Kristen giving her kisses."
We got to use the wonderful items fro this month's Flamingo 4 - we received chipboard, canvas buttons, metal hinges, and flowers.
Here you can see I "stamped" the chipboard with brown ink and then applied glitter to the bird cage and added a little butterfly inside. I used distress stains to stain the canvas buttons colors similar to the paper I used (teal, peach, and tan).
You can see the hinges at the top and the bottom just tucked under the Prima flowers.
