Dylan and Grandpa

Dylan sure can wrap grandpa around his little finger! He surprises me because he is quite a mouthy little three year old. I don't understand where they learn it so fast although I know how his mom is. I just wish I knew how you stop a three year old from being mouthy.

I think he is a pro at getting his way with grandpa because of his cystic fibrosis!

I did a layout for syao contest with a photo I have of Dylan getting grandpa to give in to him!

MY butterfly bush

Lately I have been having some fun taking photos of the butterflies that visit my butterfly bush! I was disappointed one day that I was grilling and looked out to see a yellow swallowtail. My choice was to burn dinner or take photos. Well the budget said don't waste that food so I missed the swallow tail!

Since then I did have a black swallow tail come visit and got some great photos of that!

I also got some photos of a monarch! which some I have already scrapped! hoping to make it a two pager by doing the swallow too!
I used corner punch for my technique and also the butterflies were painted purple and then embossed
i have 5 buttons
3 + pattern papers
and a pin
