Orange Blooms & Butterflies

Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes yesterday. You guys are the SWEETEST. :) 

I'm starting out the week with a fun project that I made for my craft room. I just purchased some orange flowers from IKEA and I wanted to make some crafty items that matched the color.

I love to draw from inspiration when I design things. My inspiration for this project came from the Etsy Inspired Challenge and the paper design/mixed media shop called Paper Seeds.

I love this Upcycled Brown & Orange Butterfly Bud Vase with Wish Flowers.

For my project I decorated a crafty paper box that I purchased at Michael's. I cut off the top handles because I am going to put post-it notes and flower pens in it. I always need to write down my supply list when I create. This will be handy dandy for me. Plus it matches the decor in my craft room.  


I added patterned paper and topped it with an orange butterfly. I strategically placed a bunch of orange flowers at the top. I love, love, love flowers. :)  On the back I added the the word "SMILE" and another small butterfly. I love the bling on the letters.

I also wanted to share some pictures. The sky was so beautiful yesterday morning over the cross and waterfall in front of our church. I had to take a picture of it.
 
 The Christmas tree at church is so GORGEOUS too. Love it!

I hope everyone has a great week and Keep Smiling! :)

First and foremost, happy belated birthday! I'm so sorry I am late, but trust you had a glorious day!
Your church fountain looks amazing - as does the tree! Wow! You must be south as I don't see any of the white stuff that is all over the ground up here.
Your box is lovely! The details are fabulous - especially with all those flowers. It's just so bright and cheerful!
