With The Rain Comes All Things Beautiful Blog Hop

( If you are looking for my Flaunt it Friday post, scroll down one post, Thanks).

Good Morning people of the craft world. Welcome to the With The Rain Comes All Things Beautiful blog hop. If you came from the craftastic Holly's blog then you my friends are in the right place. If you randomly stumbled upon my blog first off Welcome and if you would like to be in this hop of ours then you will have to start at the beginning which would take you to the Creator of this blog hop

When  I was first given a spot in this blog hop I thought what reminds me of spring.. and it hit me BUTTERFLYS of course. So I created something to get me in the spring mood, and I didn't use a cricut machine (shocking I know). I did use all DCWV paper from the Spots , Dots and Plaids Stack it's the best stack by far, trust me I have it in every size lol. I used a Martha Stewart butterfly punch and the chipboard is all from Spots , Dots and Plaids too. (told you I love that line).

Here is my creation :

And here are all the pieces :

It was my first ever banner. I plan on hanging it up when I get back home, were out of town right now.

Now for the blog candy :
