All photos of mine except for the picture frame. One photo of a wallpaper pattern from a recent hotel stay and 12 butterfly photos from various visits to the b'fly garden. Cut out b'flies & combined all elements, including shadows, using layers (20 of them!) in PSP 9. These butterflies have had enough of being put on display and are making a break for freedom:-)
