Moxie Fab Challenge and Sketches in Thyme

Good Morning to everyone in Blogland today! 
I am hopping that your week is tripping along fabulously as you are reading this.
Life remains the same here in Dallas, HOT, HOT, HOT! We Thought we were going to miss the 100's yesterday, but the clouds blew away it 100 snuck in on us!

Today I have a LO that is not in my usual style. 
I am trying to put a few more art elements in to LO's. I keep telling myself - it is 
only paper, it is only paper! If you don't like it you can start over :0)
So I determined that I am going to use all those paints and other supplies
that I bought because they were SO super cool! 

I used my Claudine Hellmuth paints as well as my Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic inks for the background color. I added in paper doilies that I sprayed with Glimmer mist and paper butterfly shapes. The chipboard butterfly is from Tattered Angels and has been covered in Glimmer Mist and Glimmer Glam. The flowers are Prima and a few other odd ones from my stash, the paper is Bo Bunny. 
I used the sketch from over at Once Upon A Sketch  as my inspriration

The added challenge was to use a quote, and my quote is 
"Little Girls, like butterflies, need no excuses"
I don't know where I picked that up from, I have it written down in my scrap journal, so I don't know who to give credit to.

And I have used the trigger at Moxie Fab World , this time around it is  
Fanatical About Botanical In The Moxie Fab World  
Which is right up my alley, as I use flowers and butterflies on practically everything I do! I hope you take a minute to hop over to the blog where they have some great work going on!

Thanks so much for stopping by today. 
Please leave me a comment so that I will know that you were here!
