I've Received the Butterfly Award!!

Butterfly Award:
I've been given the Butterfly Award from Sonia at archiving-angel.blogspot.com.  Thank you so much Sonia.  Be sure to visit Sonia's blog to see her fabulous creations!

After receiving this special award, I have to pass it along to 10 other bloggers, contact the 10 bloggers to let them know they have been given this award, and show a link to the person who gave me the Butterfly Award.  I'm also supposed to answer the following questions:
1) Name your favorite color?
    My favorite color is Blue.
2) Name your favorite song?
    I don't really have a favorite song.  I love oldies 50s, 60s and 70s.  (I can't believe 70s
    music is now considered oldies!)

3) Name your favorite dessert?
    This one is easy -- Cheesecake!

4) What wizzes you off at the moment?
     People who can't put down their cellphones.  Do they really think everyone
     wants to hear their conversation while waiting on line in the grocery store, riding the
     train, or at the movie theatre.  Really people put it down!!!  Sorry, can you tell it
     really annoys me.

5) Your favorite pet?
     How can a Pet Mom pick?  My present pet is my beautiful boy Jackson.  He is a 9
     year old yellow lab and a total sweetheart.  My other favorite was my little furgirl
     Erin.  Erin was a gorgeous yellow lab mix whom I adored.  She's gone 10 years,
     but I still miss her every day.

6) Black or White?
    Black - it is slenderizing!

7) Your biggest fear?
     That I didn't try hard enough at something or with someone.

8) Best Feature?
    I've received compliments about my eyes, so I'll say my eyes.

9) Everyday attitude?
    Just do your best.

10) What is perfection?
       A brand new day.

11) Guilty Pleasure?
      S H O E S
12) When you're upset you?
       Shop, eat, shop!

I'm back!!

I apologize for not posting for so long.  Sometimes life just gets in the way!  I have been working on a few projects, and I'd like to share one today.  I made this for a friend's birthday.  She just got back from a trip to Paris and I thought she might like a place to put some of the photos she took on her trip. My project was inspired by a number of very, very talented people -- Kathy Files, Laura Denison and Tim Holtz.  It is a vintage suitcase with a mini album inside.  Kathy and Laura both did versions modeled after Tim's Vagabond machine.  Most of my paper is from the DCWV Tradewinds stack. Here is my version.  I hope she likes it and I hope you do too.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
