Hello and welcome. I am Kathy Floen, one of the Design Team Members of Colorful Creations. For my part in all of these wonderful blog challenges I am doing an Altered Canvas. I LOVE altered projects. They are fun and I really can step out of the box and just be creative. :) I truly love them! :)

I love butterflies! They represent so much for me. :) Beauty, love, nature, growing, so much! :) So here is my canvas:
It really is self explanatory! :) I tried to capture the essence of how I feel as a person and how the butterfly represents me.
