**buttons & butterflies & besties...oh me.**

Hi everyone!
I hope you've had a wonderful weekend.
Ours was packed with lots of littles.
A little of this...a little of that....
but before I get into that, I have to show you something cute.
really REALLY cute.
check these out:






















yummy right? I ADORE these buttons.
Tessa Ann is SOOOO talented.
These are JUMBO buttons. FUN!

She creates some of the most GORGEOUS buttons
and even other little fun things...like cake toppers!
Check out her etsy right here:  Tessa Ann's Etsy.

It is Designer Monday so I got to create a little something
for Tessa Ann today using her Rasberry Vine buttons:





















When I saw these buttons -- I just KNEW what they were
perfect for.
My girl's prom dress (on the left  - photo from 2009 prom)!
So put together with some butterflies (totally on a butterfly kick lately),
a new die from Tim Holtz (filmstrip) using my new Big Shot (L♥VE!),
lots of Jenni B (♥♥♥!!!), October Afternoon (♥♥♥!!!) a
some chipboard and this is what ya get.

Friday I took the girl (and her bestie above!) down to Waco
 to check out her new condo she'll be moving into come August...
it's so pretty! Perfect for her. She'll be rooming with a lovely
young girl...they'll make the greatest of friends. I can totally tell.

Hubs and I watched an interesting and good movie from VOD:






















wasn't prepared for the ending. I really liked this movie.
Very REAL.  It makes you think.

and I've just finished this:























One of THE best books I've read in a LONG time.
Powerful, makes you empty a box of kleenex & feel like
 you are THERE. Excellent author.

decided it's time for a funny one, so this is what's next:























That's all I have for today.
Sure hope your day is full of sunshine...
(we're under a flash flood right now.)
