A layer a day - A spread a week: week 32

Hello lovely Butterflies,

Natascha here! I´m so exciting to share my first ALAD week with you.

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, where lots of alad spreads and in between layers get shared, which will definitely help your mojo to be inspired!

week 32

So close, but so far away

So close, but so far away, what does that mean to you? For me it means al lot of different things so I will share some of them with you.

First, it means to me my dad, who lives on ARUBA 11 hours away from me, so I can not go over for a quick cup of tea or a nice talk. Thank god there is the internet and I speak to him through Skype and than I can feel him so close to me.

Second, my daughter is very close to me in my heart but I have to let her go a little bit, because she is going to boardingschool in September for her final year at the Kunst Humaniora in Antwerp.

So close,but so far away can also mean something in the past or in the future. Think for yourself what these words mean to you and let me know.

Something what I always thought was far away for me…. was to become a team member of a creative team and now France Papillon made my dream come true and I love to share my work with all of you sweet Butterflies.

I will share my layers on the France Papillon and Creative Butterflies facebook group. Will I see yours there too???

Big hugs. Xxx
