Little girls,

like butterflies, need no excuse. I found this quote recently when I was purging my scraproom. Shelves full of old stuff that hadn't been touched since the room was set up over 2 years ago....out! Gone!

But in the process, it was fun to come across stuff that I meant to use or be inspired by.

Back in the day.

Anyway, this one was still quite relevant and went perfectly with the new challenge up at ScrapFit!! Jan 1!

(Are you in with the rest of us, in looking at both the bathroom scale and the credit card statement in horror? Well sorry, we at ScrapFit can't do much to help with the numbers on the scale...but we can help your bottom line.)

Lol, bottom line. Like on your statements, not in your Calvin Kleins.

The challenge for the first part of this month is to embrace your frugal side. Use scraps. Start with cardstock and go from there. Scrap paper, bits of this and that, use up those old alpha sheets. Make embellies from your scraps. C'mon DAZZLE us!!
I pulled out the scrap paper box and started cutting. Folding papers in half and just free-forming these butterflies!! Then I outlined them with a pale grey brush pen and then a fine line marker, and finished by stitching them in place.
Used up a bunch of alpha stickers while I was at it, and Bob's your Uncle!

When you do this challenge, don't forget to link it up back at the ScrapFit blog to win some lovely prize from our January sponsor BlueMoon Scrapbooking!!
