Calendar Girls - September

Calendar Girl time!   Yay!!!  The SCS girls are up for the September round, welcome!

Our hostess for September is, Paola.  Our theme this round is in memory of Paola's friend who moved on to a better place this past month.  Our challenge is to create a card that has apples and butterflies on it.  Two items that remind Paola of her friend.  We are to use some of our favorite colors. 

I instantly thought of some great DP that I have had forever.  No really, like forever!!!!  I received a kit recently for a card group that I am in.   I used some pre-made die cuts from the kit, for the apple theme {thank you, MaryNell}.  The butterfly was a shiny gem....a little bit shiny for the card.  I scuffed it up a bit to try to blend it to the card.  I used earth tone colors, which I am a huge fan of.  The sentiment is from Create with TLC. 

Reflecting on friends made me think of this song.  I love my Calendar Girl friends.  Please be sure to check out their creations as well.  Their blog links are on the right side bar.

Have a great day!
