I do realize that tomorrow is Valentine's Day, so this is about as close as I come to a "themed" post. This was my very first foray into the DIY/crafting world and as with almost all projects here, I had my "helpers" with me. I wanted to create some art for the loft, bringing in yellow and navy, since those were the scrapbook papers my daughter chose (I couldn't find a way to incorporate my son's choice of a ribbed orange card stock, it was just too much).
I drew inspiration from Young House Love's butterfly project (here), which came from Little Green Notebook's project (here) and an awesome Etsy store (Sarah&Bendrix), featured on Secrets from a Stylist with Emily Henderson (here).
The shadow boxes, scrap booking paper and heart punch are all from Michael's.
