Flutterby butterflies

The Polkadoodles fairies stamps come in a set, with the girl image, then a butterfly image that you stamp seperately and attach to the girl for her wings. Or you can use them as I have here..........just pretty butterflies

The paper is gorgeous, I printed it from All Around and Everywhere CD, and stamped the butterflies directly onto the paper, then again on white

Promarkers used: denim blue, powder blue and tea green
My passport needs renewing, so I had to go and sit in one of those photo booths to have a new photo taken. The booths have become quite sophisticated. In the past, you perched on the stool, put your money in, and just as you bent down to reach your lipstick out of your handbag.........FLASH, so the first photo is of the top of your head, the flash going off startles you, so you rear up..........FLASH, the second photo is of you looking like a startled rabbit caught in the headlights of a car. Eventually of course I got a photo I was reasonably happy with, the money I have wasted in those booths.
Anyway, the new ones are a lot more user friendly, there is a very bossy female voice telling you what to do. 'Are you ready?' she snaps 'Are you SURE you are ready?' - what is this, can she see that I haven't put fresh lipstick on in case that flash went off again........
