the little pin she made has a charm that reads "girlfriends".
there is so much detail in this little lady. she hangs on a chandelier in my dining room,
don't you think that is appropriate?

back of page front page closed front page open
my last page assignment was for gretchen but UU will actually be the last. i have something big i want to do with hers, hopefully. Gretchen mentioned visiting Switzerland and other countries in her college days. Her memories were a little faded. So half the page is the face with different women in the background representing her memories of the trip. When you open the page the equestrian rider and horse lay across her forhead perfectly like a little cap. they are all muted colors to represent fading. Her back page is her jardinet with her little blossoms (children) growing in the pots. I used a little torn book page, a piece of colored lace, ribbon for stem, a fabric flower and brad in the center to finish the back page. stretched after Donna Downey's class.

here are two of my canvas scrapbook pages from Donna Downey's new "Fabric" Fredericksburg class. She has so much to teach and the class was so much fun. lots and lots of gooey fingers.
