Going South for the Winter

Its time for the Monarchs to go south for the winter.

Did you know that in Mexico the people believe it is the returning souls of their loved ones?

I like that they also represent change.

I like all butterflies, but I particularly like Monarchs.

Is it their size?

The fact that they are quite ubiquitous in California?

That they are dressed for Halloween every single day? : .)

All of the above?

Inspired me to make this card...
 

(Frantic Stamper butterfly, mini brads, and some misc papers and alpha stickers from my stash.)

In other news, I recently visited New Orleans and the lovely Roebucks family.  A trip that's definitely on my top 10 list!  Pictures soon!!!  : .)
