Feeling Beautiful

Yes, I am... Once a year we plan this photo shoot, only the moms.  We get together and take each other pictures and we bring the tripod so we can record ourselves.  Our husbands and significant others have to take care of our children while we take care of ourselves.  It is not selfish I tell you, my best friend just wrote me after seeing the photos of my oldest graduation.   She said: they are great but you are in only one photo, and so it goes for 364 days, almost never a picture of me.
This weeks challenge at Once upon a Sketch is to document about a female so here it is,  me,
I did a lot of work on this one, I transferred an antique French frame from graphicsfairy to canvas and then I hand painted the blooms and leaves, very shabby, punched papers, used my sewing machine, lace, punched leaves...you get the idea


 Here is my entry for this week at Color Combos Galore, almost missed it I have been so busy, and itching to scrap, but it is finally done, with hours to spare, I love to see their counter...Once a year we have this beautiful summer bulb, the translation from the name in Spanish is "Ball of fire".  It always blooms for her birthay in July, it has been raining so much here in PR that it decided to open right away in May, mixed feelings about that...Their challenge, besides the color was to use numbers, can you tell she is 6?
 Here is the photo I used, transferred to B & W
photo credit: Myriam Reus, thank you for making me beautiful!

As soon as I ask permission I will give you the group photo or I will just post the scrapped version , LOL!
As always I love to have you visit, I treasure your comments and I welcome you to be a follower, I will follow as well
hugs Milagros

Oh, goodness! You are beautiful! And so is your page. Love, love, love the soft colors and gorgeous design, and that Graphics Fairy frame is out of this world. Love little Ms 6 year page, too. Such a fun blocked design!
