ATC for All About You

I am a part of an ATC group that meets once a month.  We design our cards around a theme that the host has picked in advance.  April was my month and I chose the theme, All about you.  I think it is fun to learn things about each other, so I chose this theme.  Here is the front of my card:
I chose the color black and pink because these are my signature colors together and also these are the color of my bedroom.  I put a piece of washi take with cupcakes on it because I love cupcakes.  I love to eat them as well as see them decorated.  The piano that I made out of punches is to represent my early piano days.  I started learning piano at the age of 6.  I can still play, but not as well as I use to.  The cross is to represent my faith in Jesus.  The red roses are to represent my favorite flower.
Here is a picture of the inside of my card:
(Sorry for the side view).  In the inside, you open up the black piece and there are dictionary paper inside to represent my love of reading.  At the top there is a snowboard because I learned to snowboard and have loved it ever since.  The iPad represents the school I work at and all the technology I use on a daily basis.  The leaf represents my favorite season of smells, food and weather.  The apple represents my passion for teaching.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little about me.

Butterfly Spring Frame

Good afternoon!
Here is a project I made for a frame swap I was a part of.  The requirements were to be a frame and to decorate it in a Spring theme.  I hope my swap partner liked it!
The frame is made from one of the $1 frames from Michaels.  I cut the paper to fit on top and made strips to cover the sides.  I found a quote online about butterflies and placed that where the picture would go.  I loved it so much, I didn't want to let it go.
