TGIF - Lace


Dreaming is wide open for anyone who dares.....I think this little gal is so lovely as she squints into the camera. She is surrounded by buttons and lace both in the stamp from Paperbag Studio and in the card. This is my entry for this week's TGIF challenge.

This reminds me of so many childhood photos Heather, where we'd be outside, smiling into the camera, but squinting because of the sun...I don't think our parents thought about that when taking photos...they just stood in front of us and snapped!! I love those Paperbag Studio stamps..Roben-Marie is amazing!

Heather, this is fabulous! I never liked to have my picture taken because I always had to look toward the sun. I'm sure that's what this beautiful child is thinking too. I love the look of the stamps and the lace. Just gorgeous.

Heather, I'm knocked out by all your work, and yet, embarassed as I
am, the piece that inspired me to
comment includes the archaic stiff
elegant lady's portait you've
included in the Gothic Arch. Can
you share specifically where you
found her...she's stunning. thanks, Joyce in Indiana
