Coming up roses...

Just look at these beauties!
I'm not sure what type of rose they are but aren't they just gorgeous.  I took this piccy whilst at the park with Little Miss P, and I couldn't quite believe how bright, almost neon bright they were.  I love it when you spot little treasures like this, especially when you're not really looking, it's the simple little things like this that make me happy, even more so now I'm another year older.
yes, it has been my birthday, and I got the best surprise gift too

I'm so proud to be one of the featured blogs in the new issue of Artful Blogging by Stampington.  I can't wait for my copy to arrive in the post and see it in person.  The image that you can see above is one of my most favourite ones and it gets a full page in the feature! WoW.
These dreams just keep on coming true.
Feeling very blessed right now.
And feeling inspired by this, I decided to make another portrait in a similar style.
Here, take a look...

lots of recycled papers included

here she is on my desk - still a work in progress...

thank you, thank you very much.

Everything is going really great right now, everything is just coming up roses.
I hope it is for you too,

I love the way you use colors on her face, the blues especially. Glad to hear all is rosy!

thank you so much, I love to use blue for shadows instead of black or greys, I like to keep the colors strong.
