Butterflies Galore

I am back from my trip out west to check on my Mother-in-Law.  She celebrated her 89th birthday and while her short-term memory is deteriorating, she is hanging in there physically.  I took my four year-old Granddaughter with me and she was fabulous.  She loved the planes and the hotel, didn't play shy with any of the relatives she was meeting for the first time, which made them very happy and she remembered her manners, which impressed a lot of waitresses and got her a pile of little toys. 

We had at least one "I miss my Mommy" session each day but if I distracted her quickly enough, she was fine.  The ice machine on our floor at the hotel was a great distraction :)  Grandma is still exhausted but I am so glad I did it for both her and her Great Grandma and the memories they will have.

Now on to the challenge this week at Delightful Challenges.  We want you to add butterflies to your paper crafting project.
