There's no one like you

Today's post is for my daughter...we brought her to college this week. It was sad to see her go, yet thrilling to see her at the university. I remember those days and hope she is getting the most out of them. She has a wonderful on campus suite with 4 other young women. Her room is light filled and she decorated it in such a creative personal way. The most important thing was that all her  clothes fit for the first time. LOL. So darling daughter, "There's no one like you."

I used Tim Holtz Craft Resist Paper  Stash and water colored it. The paper is from the fabulous  Flying Unicorn store. I cut out the  butterflies  and after water coloring then added Stickles, fiber and pearls for accents. A matching water colored strip of lace holds the butterflies on the ATCs, but they can be taken off as well. Added the sentiment to the back, to make this an interactive piece. Some black German scrap and more Stickles complete the little ATCs.

Hope you have a  someone who is unique.
artfully yours, gerri
