Collage for Erica

Here's the new collage I've been working on for my daughter. I posted several close-ups, too. Now she's the lucky owner of two of my collages - remember I made a "practice" collage for her before Jenny's "bits & pieces" collage swap? So, I'll shortly be hanging them both in her room. She loves Rachel Ashwell decorating touches, and I was really trying for a Shabby Chic look with this pink one. Not sure what it is, other than a collage! But, Erica loves it!


Once the holiday is over, there'll still be some excitement here in Blog Land! I'm waiting until Friday to draw my lucky winner for my give-away!
Happy 4th of July to everyone! Today we bought a new flag to replace our outdoor one, so it will fly proud and brightly colored tomorrow. We're really looking forward to a picnic, then watching fireworks at Central Park. Don't forget to secure all your pets! My little terrier mix, Ruffy, is just terrified of fireworks and runs under the bed or couch for the evening at the first whistle. We want to keep all our cats and dogs safe!

Wow, I love this second collage for Erica! This is truly a shabby-chic inspired collage. So soft, light in coloring and texture! I agree with Erica, the music square, "You Are My Sunshine", is so sweet and tender, filled with memories, I'm sure! These are so fun to make! My "test, or practice" collage is sitting with things in place, but not glued! This would make a great gift...I know of a summer girl's birthday coming up...will you make one for this birthday?

Have fun at the park, and do they make ear plugs for dogs Ruffy size?

Happy 4th!!!!!

I absolutely love this collage. Love the colors and all the bits and pieces. I'm really enjoying your blog! Along with your write up on Michael's. Ours isn't as accommodating as yours seems to be. Sigh.
