My not so secret circle sister !!!!

So as you know I'm a member of the Cricut Circle and one lady started a fun thing on the chat board. Everyone fills out 20 questions and then she "matches" you with someone that has the same interests as you. You get to get to know this person and sent them packages and just be there for them. So of course I signed up to experience it LOL.....and I must say she paired me up with someone GREAT !!!

My Circle sister is ALMA and her blog at My Pink Life so stop over and say "hi"

My beautiful find!

We painted my daughters' bedroom and she is requesting butterflies on the wall. SO Im thinking in my head about how in vinyl its all gonna happen

When I was in Michaels the other day they had their Recollection brand of NEW flower jars, and this was in one of the jars. You get 12 in a jar, arent they pretty? It would look great on a card or anything but Im thinking a cluster of butterflies flying on her wall....how cute will this be?

I believe they were 9.99 but of course I use a 50% off coupon. Enjoy!
