Love letter Challenge


So it has taken me all month, but I was waiting for everything to fall into place before I attempted this challenge. I follow a blog called The Creative Type (recommended to me by the lovely Savitri) and I have never participated in one of their challenges, but I am super excited about this month's February bonus challenge Love Letters. I finally got a new printer at home so I am able to type on my lap top and then print my documents and photos wirelessly from the living room to the office, pretty sweet deal...Anyway, I sat down Thursday night, typed my love letter to myself, printed it and started thinking about a layout all day on Friday. I saw a really cool butterfly collage over on Ali Edwards blog....and I just got some new Hambly screen prints....and everything sort of fell into place after I bought my new butterfly punches from Michael's on my way to last night's crop. I am excited to participate in this challenge because there is a prize. I have never won anything, blog candy, challenges, giveaways....(well, except the Audrey, one time, ages ago, but it was strictly for bragging rights)...The winner gets to pick a print from the Blue Tree Art Gallery, and the City Scene collection is so unbelievably cool, I completely fell in love with St. Mary's.
