A layer a day - A spread a week: week 12

Hi hi sweet Butterflies, Kathleen here!

It is time for another week in the ALAD/ASAW challenge.

In case this is the first time you read about the challenge, check out the first blog post on the subject here, where we explain what it is all about.

You can join the fun at any time on the France Papillon and Creative Butterflies facebook group. Since we started this year we have seen beautiful layers and spreads. We are so happy you are sharing those with us!

week 12

The shadow of the morning

I’m really a morning person, every day I get out of bed around 05.00am and in the weekends I sleep out till 06.00am. I love the silence and when the world starts to live again. Especially in the spring and summer when birds start to sing and the sun is slowly raising and when there are could knights and in the morning it’s foggy. Those are the best mornings and with a nice cup of coffee my day is complete.

I am curious how do you see the morning if you’re not a morning person? Is it all black and grey? Or are you ready to shine after a cup of coffee of tea and a good breakfast…show me how you feel and how do you see “the shadow of the morning”.

Let’s play around and make a pages this week…

See you back here soon!

Cheers :)
