Tiddly Inks Treasure Hunt Blog Hop!

It's here.. It's here! It's the Tiddly Inks Blog Hop!! We're celebrating Tiddly Inks's first birthday with a Treasure Hunting blog hop!

You should have arrived here from Alex's blog if not.. please start here at the Tiddly Inks blog!

What would a treasure hunt be without a prize?  A few of us Tiddly Inkers & special guests have Pirate Jane 'hidden' in photos on the blogs, next to Jane will be a letter of a secret code..combine all the letters to form the the secret message!  (hint.. you'll need to follow the hop in order)  When you've figured out the secret message email it to and you'll be entered into a drawing to win a prize!!

The blog hop will be live from 12 AM CST on April 30 until 12 PM CST on May 3--be sure to be entered for the prizes by email before then and let your friends know about the fun.... (Winners will be chosen only from emailed entries and announced following the blog hop.)
Ok.. enough chit chat on to my projects!

First, when I saw this Flutterby image I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it :) My sister had taken my adorable nieces to a botanical gardens that has a butterfly garden. If you look closely you can see that one of the butterflies thought the flower on my niece's shirt was a REAL one!
All a flutter

and for my second project..after tinkering around in Photoshop some more I combined Bev and June together for this sweet friendship card...
Special treasures
(Psst.. do you see what I see?)
