Fabulous Friday - Spread those wings and fly!

Well hello there out in blog land.  Long time no see!  I'm finally back and able to share some crafty stuff.

We are delivering Shannon, my eldest, to college.  It will be the last time we see her until Christmas :-(  But, she is going away to live her dream :-)

I am going to be in my craft room quite regularly now, as I get used to one of my daughters moving on in life and leaving the nest for a little while.

We are in week 2 of our Polkadoodles challenge. Our challenge themes are now always Anything Goes with an optional twist.  The twist this week is Use Something Beginning with F.

My share for you this week is a 12" by 12" canvas that I made for Shannon for taking away with her to college.

I have used the wonderful collection Lemonade Fizz.  This collection is available as a download, but it is also available as a CD and you can also order the fabulous Stamp and CD combo.

Everything on the canvas is from this collection, except the quote which I found on the internet.  I love all the pastel papers and the gorgeous butterflies, which I couldn't resist layering up.

I inked all the edges of all the layers.  Added a body and beads for the butterfly and then added some layered flowers to add dimension.

Shannon loved this by the way and it brought a few tears :-)

So I know you are all busy crafting so why not go and enter our Anything Goes challenges :-)

I promise to be by soon and catch up with what you have been up to this summer.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy crafting.
