Butterflies Sweet Sketch Wednesday Sketch #96

             Pure Innocence 

Oh where Oh where has this last week gone, here we are in the first week of April already and we have just finished daylight savings which means it's lighter in the mornings and darker here at night.  That can only mean one thing winter is upon us but our weather is still very warm.   Liam finishes school on Friday his first term at Boarding School has gone already.  He has 3 weeks school holidays and his brother has 2 so it will be nice to spend so quality time together.

Today is Wednesday and that means it's

I love what you did with the sky behind her and that gorgeous and glittery egg paper! The butterfly is the perfect touch.

Peace & Luv,

P.S. Yes I do make my own crocheted flowers. I love to make them when I'm watching tv.
