I'm so excited to share with you today my first DT project for Berry71Bleu!

I enjoyed working with a beautiful tag Berry71Bleu  Marivic sent me.  It coordinates perfectly with the papers in the Frosted Life Collection by 13 Arts, our sponsor this month.

I used some gesso, masking, stitching and rub ons on the background paper from the Frosted Life collection.

I've surrounded my picture and tag with flowers,  as I love to garden and enjoy the beauty in flowers.  I printed out a couple of pictures of flowers from my garden, cut them out and added them to my layout.  Here you can see where I've added a purple flower.
I hope I have inspired you to join in on our January challenge:

 This challenge is no-holds-barred...talk about your new year's resolution, your dreams, your childhood, your best and worst moments, what makes you laugh, cry, mad...what makes you feel beautiful...your best physical feature, what you wish you can change about yourself...your pet peeves, your frustrations, your favorite food, color...maybe a secret? whatever you want to talk about as long as it's all about you.Since we are talking about you...(the queen!).

Wow...I am stunned at the feeling this page gives. There's a mix of something really bold and yet so subtle and soft (I am guessing what could be a good mix of who you are?)
But this certainly is a page to stir up emotion...and how neat is that?
Thanks for sharing this creation!!!!
