Week# 96 - Curvaceous Cat - Photo Inspiration

Evening woo hoo got on to the computer after waiting all week-end this weeks Challenge is from the curvaceous Cat she has dedicated this challenge to her late mum

She has chosen a photo inspiration - actually 2 photos for you to choose from or find inspiration in both. Her mom passed away a year ago and butterflies, especially Monarchs, were a significant part of her life. As a child they would search for the gold, black and white caterpillars on milkweed plants and watch their transformation into beautiful butterflies. Now whenever she See's a butterfly she is reminded of her mom and feel she's still close by.

For the challenge, she has selected a photo of the caterpillar and butterfly; think of it as a before and after.

Please pop over to OSCC to see all the hard work everyone on the Design Team have done their work is beyond compere all the hard work that has been done in Honour of Cat's mum is so touching.
I lost my mum quite a while a go but it doesn't take much for me to feel a bit touchy for a little while it may be something so simple it does'nt need to be anything important just an idle thought " I should tell mum" then you remember you can't.
