We have a winner and some pages from my Rococo Altered Book.

And we have a winner....... Drum roll pleeeaaassseeeeee

Karen from Some Days are Diamonds is the lucky winner of this lavender scented Heart sachet.

Thanks to all of you who particiapted in my giveaway and celebrate my come back.

Karen please email me your mailing address so I can mail your gift to you.


I got started with some swaps that I have going in the Marie Mail Art group. Oh I cannot wait to show you. They are sooooo much fun. So while doing those I ordered more supplies that now I am waiting for in the mail.

While doing that I decided to go on to something else. Now do you remember that Rococo Altered book that I started some time last year?? You can see it here. I got really excited with all the Rococo fancy collages and art again. I wanted to do more and more. Well, I decided to work on some more pages on the book. It had been neglected for too long now, I need to work more on it from time to time.

So here are the pages I did. The graphic design is by Olga's Designs

I love ribbon roses. I really need to start making my own but I do have a pretty BIG stash of them so I might as well use them. I love the colors.

I powdered the lady and revamped her make up by hand with pencil colors and you may notice the pink streaks in her hair.

Here are the Drama Queens.

I started the page with crepe paper ruffles on sides and Asian floral wall paper border ( I love the border, a great find at the goodwill store. Got to love that store)

They were so much fun to make and yes, I was in heaven in a super messy studio with glitters and lots of colorful supplies flowing all over the room.

I cannot wait to show you what else I made....

Until next post..... to do loo!!!

Hugs To All
