21st birthday wishes

This 5x7 canvas is for my dear friend, Alice, to give to her granddaughter.  Alice cried when she saw it.  I'm glad (not glad that she cried LOL) that she liked it.  The photo captured a special moment between Alice and her infant granddaughter.  I removed the background from the photo, changed it to black and white, printed it on shrink plastic and then mounted it on a pair of Tim Holtz' grunge butterfly wings covered with blue glitter.  Enjoy!

Getting Older is a Bit More Palatable ...

... when your dear neighbor/friend brings a birthday cake TO. DIE. FOR.

I'll let the pictures do the talking. (Except to say that the beautiful purple flower and the purple tiles around the cake are all chocolate.  With gold on them.)  I'm one lucky girl, for sure!  First, for the cake and second (and more importantly) for such a good friend.  Thanks Nancy!

Memory Book

This little memory book will be going to a friend's niece in Boston.  One of her dear friends died recently, and my friend wanted to give her something to help her remember the girl.  I put a lot of love and thought into this project.

No words, just pictures.
