Butterflies beyond our grasp

Our challenge for the two weeks was to use butterflies.  The little girl is our daughter at 16 months.  I scanned in an antique postcard with the Heidelberg castle that we lived close to when she was born.
the quote is by Nathaniel Hawthorn: it reads
Happiness is a butterfly which,
 when pursued is always beyond our grasp,
 but, if you will sit down quietly,
 may alight upon you.

Hi just came from Ann's nick of the woods. What a beautiful tag you have created. I am old as dirt but just now having time to do crafts and art and am having a great time. Pop over to my neck of the woods. We are neighbors. I am in central Ky, south of Louisville. blessings
