Caraline with a "C"!

Caraline Hope...our future granddaughter's chosen name! I am so in love with it. A beautiful name that her parents finally agreed on! We can hardly wait for her arrival in a few weeks.

I altered this letter "C" for Caraline's bedroom wall. The papers are the same that I used for our daughter's baby shower card and Caraline's "Wish" box. You can see them HERE. This will be part of Caraline's Easter goodies, although she hasn't arrived to collect them yet!
The patterned papers are My Mind's Eye, Princess Line.
The large butterfly is from the Tim Holtz Harlequin Grungeboard Elements Collection. I used Smooch Pearlized Silver Fox and Smooch Pearlized Illuminate to color the butterfly. I lightly distressed it with Ranger Tea Dye Distress ink. The small butterfly is from Prima. I inked this with some Ranger Worn Lipstick and Antique Linen Distress Inks. These are two of my favorite colors!! I added some Cinnamon Stickles and Pearls.
Caraline's middle name, "Hope" deserved special attention, so I printed it on cardstock and framed it with a Tim Holtz Ornate Frame. The jewel flourish is Prima.The crown is another element in the Tim Holtz Harlequin Grungeboard Collection. Inked in the same way as the large butterfly. The small butterfly is another of the Prima butterflies.

Caraline...you are so loved already!!!

I have entered my altered project in the Do You Stack Up "Easter" Blog Hop. I had a fun time hopping from blog to blog and collecting letters for the clue as to what needed to be part of the project I created. The letters spelled, "FLOWER"!
