Yes, my life is in transition. I am now getting used to life as a widow. What will this bring? Time will tell.

It was very hard to get a good picture of this. It is tilted so much
to remove the glare.

September Challenge 'Wings'
Dezinaworld is offering a wonderful assortment of her
Designer Paper as a prize.

Lady in the Clouds
My Wings entry uses a photo that was taken by my daughter, Susan.
I think it is one of my all time favorite photos.
It was taken from the Juliet balcony of their hotel room
in Guanajuato, Mexico. She was on vacation there with her
husband Will. The sun is just coming out after a short thunderstorm.
I altered this photo by printing it out twice. The second photo was
used to cut the sunny areas and layer them over the original. The winged
woman is from an ad in a magazine.
This picture hangs on the wall in my sunroom. I never get tired
of looking at it. It brings back wonderful memories
of my visit there a few years back. Susan and I spent a week there and loved
every minute of it. Guanajuato is a wonderful place to visit.

This card is for Flutter By Wednesday
Fairy or Butterfly and flowers

I used the image that Stef designed.
Thank you Stef for the Freebie. I'm loving it.

I love how this turned out. I used my new border punch for the first time. I made
the background paper by stamping a large butterfly randomly over white cs.
