After seeing these adorable butterfly journal posted here:
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=130057.0

I began looking everywhere for one I could make one with! At: http://graphicsfairy.blogspot.com/ I found one labeled "Amazing Vintage Butterfly" but I thought she was more of a moth. Smiley

I cut the pages from linen paper salvaged from old letterhead with the wrong Undersheriff's name on it and headed to the recycle bin and I watercolored them to match the colors in her wings. The moth is printed onto card stock. I sewed her together using cotton embroidery floss. I really liked the fuzzy yarn, but didn't have any Sad.

I think she turned out so sweet.
