Time Flies Butterflies layout made using The First Few Years cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today's scrapbook layout is made using The First Few Years cartridge. I just love the play on words with the title and the butterflies. I really enjoyed making this layout. Then again I love making anything overtly feminine! Bring on the bows, flower, and butterflies!
