"Tea Party"--A Give-Away, 2 New Creations, and My Daughter

Hi Everyone--
I know, this is a long post but, I've got lots to say! This miniature-size canvas was created for the challenge at Dezinaworld. The challenge prompt was to create something with lavender. So, I used a picture that I had already created. Then, I made this altered art piece with it.

If you would like to be in a drawing to win the little canvas, just leave me a message on here and please say, "I'd like to be in the drawing." That way, I'll know if you would like to participate.

Here is the graphic I created in Photoshop.
(The teapot is from the Graphics Fairy.) I am also linking this to BRAG MONDAY with Karen!!!

This is a journal that I bought for a
lifelong friend. Her birthday is
coming up soon!

I wanted to embellish it!

Here is the inside page printed on vellum.
(I photographed the cover and put it on
the inside, as well.)

And another one on vellum.

This last picture is my daughter Jenny...I will be visiting with her for a few days, so if I'm not on here blogging, you now know why! I'm so excited!

September 26--The drawing is now closed!

Enjoy your time with your lovely daughter!!! Hope y'all make some wonderful memories doing girly things together.

As always, beautiful creations. But then, I'm an avid tea gal, so you KNEW I would love that one, didn't you?

Much as I would love to be in the drawing, I have already been the blessed recipient of some of your other creations, so I will let my chance go to someone else. (Don't want to be selfish here!!)

Anyhow, blessings and hugs to you.
