Butterflies In Bloom

I was bad! I waited till the last minute to get both our personal and business tax returns ready but in my own defense, I knew we we're not getting a refund so ... you know, I dragged my feet a little bit. Now after spending two days, pouring over receipts and crunching numbers, we decided that we needed to do something fun. Yesterday we went to Dow Gardens, which is about 1/2 hour from where we live and checked out the Butterfly Exhibit in their conservatory. Dow Gardens is on property that was owned by the founder of Dow Chemical Company and has now been turned into a beautiful place to enjoy the day with walking trails, waterfalls, beautiful gardens, the conservatory, and so much more. Anyway, every year they bring in exotic butterflies and let them flutter around the conservatory, so you can get an up close experience. It was really beautiful. My hubby took several snapshots so last night I worked on a layout and of course, I needed to adorn it with some Wordart so I created the following and I thought I would offer to you as today's freebie.

Here is the layout I created with some of our butterfly pictures. I used Carla Holf's Tranquility kit which can be found at Scrapable. Have a great day!
