Now that we've gotten these details out of the way, lets see what I cooked up! I've used all 5 ingredients! 

Its a journal cover that i altered! I've recently discovered that altering things is so so much fun! endless possibilities to convert a boring product into something new and exciting!!

I love love love the sentiment. One needs to enjoy life to the fullest every single day. We never know what tomorrow will bring! :) 

The feathers are die cuts, that have been misted with Lindy's and then embossed with enamel :) Have also used the wooden clothespins and bottlecaps new at lulupu! 

The butterfly is a punch out that I've glittered with my martha stewart glitter. Isnt it just yummmmmm??!?!?

All the other details are stamps that are heat embossed, coloured and fussy cut!

I've used my K & company tags to stamp the sentiment onto :) 

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Your next stop is - Hussena

Remember her hop may go live anytime between now and dec 20th! so keep checking!!
