It's the beginning of the Summer season and once again, it's time for me to take a short break. I will continue to post occasionally but not as often as usual. I have found these breaks are very necessary to keep me from burnout and also to let the creative juices flow. Thank you to all my faithful followers and challenge buddies. Have a wonderful Summer and enjoy these free images:
What a challenge this week was! I do not know much about Bollywood but I really liked the Bollywood remake of Pride and Predjudice (Bride and Predjudice, 2004) so my arch this week is based on that movie. This is Lalita (the Elizabeth Bennet character) looking at Will Darcy behind a sheer curtain.
Please see all the great submissions this week at: http://gothicarches.blogspot.com/
I am pleased to be part of the wonderful design team at Moonlight Journey. This is a 4.25" x 5.5" Card that I created using collage images by Moonlight Journey. You can find these and more wonderful images at their online store: http://www.moonlightjourney.com/index.html Check it out!
I have been missing a few challenges lately and here is my reason. Our Cavachon (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel/Bichon Frise mix) puppy has been keeping me busy. She is now sleeping through the night and is almost house trained so I should be able to get back to creating on a regular basis soon. (I couldn't resist picking up a Santa Suit for her on clearance last Jan. For $1.50 it was well worth the picture. Sadly by Christmas this year I'm sure it won't fit so I just had to take the picture. Call it Christmas in May, lol.)

Each banner is 6" x 7" and made of sturdy matt board. The requirements were that we needed to make them in pink and blue and use Paris/Marie Antoinette/France as the subect. The banners needed to include the letters for the word "AMOUR"
Needless to say I was thrilled when I rec'd my set in the mail. Thanks you ladies for a whimsical, wonderful, pink and pretty swap.
