FBW 100th Challenge!!! Woo - Hoo!!!

That's right today we celebrate 100 challenges on the Flutter By Wednesday Blog!!

I am so happy for Danni - she's such a wonderful leader and friend to me not to mention such an inspiration! I am so thankful that she started this challenge blog and that she asked me to be a part of it! To celebrate Danni's 100th challenge we (meaning the design team) have a little surprise for her. See this week the challenge is an OPEN one - which means you can do anything as long as you include a butterfly, fairy or angel on it. The challenges originally started with us using only butterflies. So that's what we are using this week. PLUS our fellow DT member, Karen, found these wonderful butterfly boxes from Brenda so we all are making one of those as well. It's our way of saying THANK YOU DANNI and CONGRATS ON 100 CHALLENGES!!!

There is a large and small template to make a butterfly box. I went with the large one. My box is pretty plain but I wanted the focus to be on the butterfly :o) Here is a close up of the box:

Want to make your own butterfly box? You can find the template HERE. I made a matching card for my box. After making it I realized that IT needed to have a butterfly on it (DUH, this is a FLUTTER BY CHALLENGE, LOL)

Isn't that butterfly cool? I found those at Archiver's. They are made with felt and came in many different colors and sizes...they are FAB!

So whatcha think? Don't you think Danni's going to love her little surprise? Thank you to Karen for finding these boxes and to Brenda for posting the template. I'm sure I'll be using them again!

I can't wait to see what the other DT members did with their boxes - have I mentioned how creative this group is? I hope you decide to play along this week - remember it's an OPEN challenge (just need to have a butterfly, fairy or angel on it). Go to the FBW blog HERE and link your creation using Mr. Linky!

Thanks for stopping by - I'll see you tomorrow Softpencil Thursday!
