Hi there Pink Saturday friends! Sorry I have been MIA, I'll get around to seeing you all soon, well after my artful Gathering classes are over as I'm having way too much fun. This is a practice page from one of the books where we are learning and trying out different techniques. This one I was a little carried away when playing with all my fibers but I had fun with it! I don't get to serious about all of this it is meant to be fun and I really don't expect to become a world famous artist! I hope all of you are having a great summer! Today I took two of my grandchildren to see the new Smurf movie and for ice cream. We all had a great time but I'm oh so tired and late in getting up my post. Hugs to all of you and I promise to visit everyone that left or leaves a comment on my blogs after Grandma finishes summer school!:) Don't forget to visit al the other Pink Peeps over at Beverly's of How Sweet the Sound for more pinkalicious Pinks and fun!

Happy Pink Saturday Marilou Sweetie...
Oh my what a gorgeous share. I love textures and this one is totally full of textures, colors, beauty and so much LOVE. The faces of the women are truly breathtaking. I love that and the textures you chose, seem to fit the era so well.

I have been wanting to go and see the Smurf movie as well. Two of the grands want to see it. I have a feeling in the next week we will be going as well.

Have a beautiful weekend sweet one. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful creativity. I love it when you create. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

I can't believe how popular altered books are right now. I've seen some very pretty ones, including yours.

Hello Marilou

I came to your blog via Karla and the Birdsong tag swap!
It was my first swap and I really enjoyed it. I'm trying to visit as many "tag swappers" as I can and see what else you are doing!

Love the beautiful pages you've created here Marilou!

I'm a francophile who loves making pretty bits and bobs for my French granddaughters!!

Going to the movies with the grands sounds like so much fun.

Hello there d-a-h-ling! And a wonderful pink every day to you! I'm thinkig about signing up for my first swap but I'm scared I won't measure up!!! Crisis mode aahhh! Your blog is looking so pretty and mine , well it looks like cow dung. Oh speaking of I have a Texas cowgirl give away that only 11 people have signed up for!! So it really does stink! (get it hehehe)

I haven't posted anything creative lately, just silly things and adventures for weeks, my shakes have been pretty bad so I've just been trying to fill the posts with something fun. Did you read my lizard post, it was kinda funny.

I'm getting nervous these shakes usually get better after a period of frequency but no subsiding yet.I think I'm a little afraid to try anything now, SO that's why I love what you did in this post, sewing, I can do sewing, the machine does most of the work. SO yipee skipee thank you dear friend fro bringing me out of my blues!!!!!! xoxo-cindy

Cindy Adkins said...
