Happy Saturday! Well, my husband decided to take yesterday off and, since my youngest was on Spring Break this past week, we spent the day with him. Took him out to lunch and then basically ran errands and took care of doctor's appointments the rest of the day. Oh, and we got Riley bathed and shaved. He must like it because he's been practically prancing around here ever since we got him home last night. He looks so cute! I got before and after pictures and I'm planning on doing a "Hairy to Handsome" page. Sad that I'm planning pages for the dog's photos and I'm still way behind on the kids. Don't you think? :) Oh, and don't think I didn't have to fight for every picture. The dog is as bad as the kids... they all HATE having their picture taken by the 'Mom-arazzi"!

So today's project is a little matchbook that holds a clippy made with my extra Beautiful Wings butterflies. In the first picture you can see it closed, and the envelope it fits into is the 3x3 envelope from Stampin' Up! (Love these, they're great for little gift enclosures!). Second picture shows the matchbook open with the clip positioned inside. And, the third picture better shows you what the clip looks like. Basically it's just a large paper clip, decorated so that it can brighten someone's day :)
