What a beautiful morning, I love the serenity of summer mornings just like this one, the birds are very busy peak hour in some of the trees. I just wish mornings could last a little longer before the harsh sun comes out telling us its time to get on with our day.
First thing on my list of things to do, was a post I finished this page off late last night a couple of days over due in my scheme of things.
Both my pages and card are using the pallette #93 over in The Colour Room
all Papers are from Le Belle Jardin I am very excited about this collection having lots of fun working with it just as I did creating it.

 I painted the little metal frame from Megs with white nail polish so it would match

this beautiful lace flower and Tassels are available over at Megs Garden with the Belle Jardin Collection

 I have coloured my Digi stamp using Copics I wanted to keep this card simple I had to be very careful with my embellishments so not to take from the image but more to compliment her, fussy cutting around the leaves in Eau de Cologne helped achieve this  and the beautiful butterfly has come from Megs Garden as well

a matching tag for the card using left over scrap
well I'm going to make a coffee and venture out to give those delicate plants a water before my beautiful morning becomes day.

So here she is surrounded by colour

I am not one of those people who celebrate the New Year very well, and I am sorry for that but I get a little sentimental on how quick the years are flying by, even if thou the year was not one of the best, sent us a few life challenges to deal with I don't always want to say good by to it.
But this year I have mixed feelings for I have sooooo been looking forward to January 2012 , for lots of exciting things are happening this month.
