Butterfly exhibit for the Houston Holocaust Museum

There's nothing more fun than making papercrafts with your friends; whether we're crafting our hearts out over our own scrapbooks, getting together for the Cougar Charity Crop or in this case, making butterflies for the Houston Holocaust Museum in Houston, TX

We had a great day; all of us!


 I was determined to use my new Cherry Lynn Doilie Dies to make some sort of butterfly.  I was happy that they colors used in the designer paper matched the SU Baja Breeze and Pear Pizzazz so nicely though no one knew where the DP paper came from?  A row of green rhinestones down the middle added my personal zing....life ain't much without that bling!


 My last creation was done is SU Blushing Bride smudged over the entire front of the chipboard butterfly, SU Poppy in color made the flowers with Kiwi Kiss leaves.  The scripture stamps used were from the Verve Company and are a couple of their "plain jane" series.  The ribbon was SU Dusty Durango which coordinated with the Poppy ink once it was put on top of the blushing bride ink.  Weird but fun how it worked since I had no in color ribbon yet!   :  )


I managed to get five butterflies made for my personal contribution.  Yes, they want 1.5M collected for their efforts to represent the 1.5M children who perished in the Holocaust; but I was happy to get five special ones done for starters.  Our group doesn't think this is the last we'll be doing of this effort.  It was too much fun to create the unique pieces; each one that expressed our unique personalities while joining into a museum exhibit!

What fun is that?

Here's more of what we put together!





Oh of course, including our mini me's who were there in attendance as well!  : )
