Scrapping Everyday Miracles August Sketch Challenge

I just can't believe how fast this summer is flying by. Our youngest daughter starts college in exactly one week. 

The Sketch Challenge is up at Scrapping Everyday Miracles, and it is my turn to create both a layout and card sketch. I hope you'll find inspiration to create a project and link it up at SEM for a chance to win our generous August prize sponsored by DaysignsYou can create a sketch based card and/or layout with any wholesome theme, but don't forget the twist. 

The Twist: Use a butterfly on your layout and/or card. 

The metamorphosis of a caterpillar into a lovely butterfly is a beautiful picture of how Christ transforms our lives when we trust in him.
