BEE HAPPY

I added some Stickles to his wings - not so easy to photograph:



QUIET TIME

 I tried to create a 'room' scene using DP for the wallpaper and patterend carpet, and some white ribbon for the skirting.  I used the 'thinking of you' sentiment that comes in this stamp set to create a mini picture frame for the wall, using acetate for the 'glass' and Anita's 3D clear gloss to make the frame shiny:


So now it's time for you to hop on over to the AMAZING Kerri's blog... but remember to leave me a comment first as I may be the secret starlet!! ;o)

Finally, here's the complete Blog Hop rotation:
