Use your scraps over at Flutter By Wednesday!

It's a new challenge over at Flutter By Wednesday and this week we are encouraging you to use your scraps!  A very useful challenge I'm sure you'll agree!  I pulled out one of my older paper collections My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup Girl (currently 15% off over at Quixotic Paperie here!).  I used my Nesties to make the perfect squares from the bits of scrap paper and made the flowers out of scraps of white cardstock...

 
 

I won over at the Catch the Bug challenge recently and this sweet digi was one of my prizes!  She is called Wee One Fairy - aint' she cute?!  I have loads of Bugaboos but don't get a chance to use them - really should play with them more as they are so much FUN!

Don't forget to add butterflies, fairies or angels on your make somewhere - you can get all the deets here!


I am entering this card into the following challenges:
