A new little paper collage I created in my favorite douche tones, using 
paper napkins , Spellbinders cutout, old text from hand written book,music
sheet , and stamps .

I love the wonderful image!

This arrived a little time ago from a very sweet friend  TERRI  from Artful Affirmations.
Isen`t it the most beautiful package!

The first thing I unwrapped was this lovely lace and paper bag, filled with 
sweet little soft pink wrapped gifts and the beautiful old card.

Inside them I found the beautiful shells filled with pearls, smaller shells,
buttons ,an egg, feathers- and all wrapped in tulle and lovely seambinding in the 
same tone.
The nature finds ,are pieces that dear Terri have all found on her trips to the beach.
Here you can see the inside papers in the bag !

And OHHH , look at this little dearest angel, she so lovingly send me,
the doll is an old Milk Tab doll,  and Terri, dressed her and decorated 
her to this most beautiful angel ,for me.

Isen`t she so lovely with her Halo ,tree, and the tiny tags she is holding.
Thank you dearest Terri, I almost never recieve an angel  ,so she is extra
dear to me.

Terri added little old religious charms ,too,-

a wonderful tag, with lace and seambinding ,

and this other beautiful card .

I am overwhelmed with all this beauty, of lovelyness,
softest pink ,white and nature elements , THANK YOU
from my heart dear sweet Terri.


Before saying happy weekend to you all, I will also welcome 
all new followers,- you are so very appriciated and welcome, I hope I can find time to
visit you all back, again.

Love and hugs and
a wonderful weekend to you all !

Hello dearest Dorthe
You have created a very sweet paper collage with many layers and interest.

Terri has really spoilt you with her most exquisite gift.
Everything is very feminine and so beautifully wrapped in tulle - with all the treasures of nature so dear to your heart.
I'm swooning as I love everything like this too, the soft palette with ribbons, lace and so many surprises.
You will keep coming back to it to look at everything again and again.

Hoping you are enjoying your weekend and feel completely well again my dear.
With love and hugs
