This is our new Cavachon puppy Sophie. A Cavachon is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Bichon Frise mix. We brought her home yesterday and the entire family is totally in love. I may be MIA on the blogs for the next week or so as I'll be taking care of this sweet little fur baby. Ahhh the sleepless nights again, lol.
This week the inspiration piece was the lovely Marie Antoinette. I chose to use the image and create a rather three dimensional gothic arch (4" x 6"). Please visit: http://collageobsessionchallenge.blogspot.com/ to see all the elegant submissions this week.
I participated in a 1/1 swap with the theme "Marie's Secret Garden Birdhouse". I rec'd this lovely birdhouse, tag and bird candle from Patricia Hine-Stewart and I'm just enchanted. Thank you so much Patricia for a wonderful swap! - Kris
The second in my Marie and Birds ATC series. I know I've posted quite a few Marie themed items this month but I've been involved in so many different swaps at Marie Antoinette Mail Art on Ning and just have to share everything. I feel Marie is very "Springy" so she works for me for this time of year.
