Silhouette Magnet with The Cutting Cafe

Regina has added some pretty silhouettes to The Cutting Cafe site.  I chose to use this beautiful butterfly from the Fun with Silhouettes set to make a clothespin magnet. 
I printed the butterfly on vintage ledger paper and cut it out.  Then I printed it again and cut out a heart.  I cut three more hearts and then sewed it all to the pink gingham.  I also cut a butterfly and hearts out of the Graphix clear craft sheets so that each layer would stand apart.
   I painted the clothespin pink and glued a magnet to the back. 
Here's that sweet magnet holding an old picture of the three of us - I think Lauren is three (maybe four) and she's now 25!  Love those big glasses on Dennis - he looks so young!  So do I, for that matter!  (I WAS young, only 25 or 26!)  I love the combination of the butterfly silhouette and the black and white picture.  Darling for the front of the fridge or on a magnet board.   This week's inspiration will be up soon at The Cutting Cafe blog - be sure to check out the other projects using pretty silhouettes!
