We would love to welcome you there !

and to the first Challenge

  1. Love the mixed media art you created in your AB. Love what you did, but you MUST keep me away from REAL wasps, since I got deathly ill when one bit me two years ago.

    Too late to tell me about The Mirror Crack'd challenge (grin). I made something already, since mixed media is my true love. But I'm glad you let others know.

  8. sitze hier mit meiner Kaffeetasse und genieße dein bild mit den tollen farben und Texturen! (gut, dass noch keine Wespen unterwegs waren, als ich gerade meine frühstückssemmel mit der Kornelkirschen-Marmelade geschmaust habe, hmmm, eingekocht von meinem sohn... schön, wenn man die Kids mal so weit hat, der Mama Marmelade zu kochen;))
    und danke für den link zur neuen challenge, werde sie im auge behalten.

  14. Susi, I don't normally care for wasps, but yours are beautiful! I love how the page is gradient-ed! Lovely! xoxo

  15. What an amazing page! I really like that you are using such 'everyday items' in your piece. The dry wall tape looks amazing. Guess who will be calling in the Builders Merchants next time she is in town?
