GOTHIC ARCH-"Blue"


Here's my arch for this week's theme of "Blue" over at Kris' Gothic Arch Challenge. My arch background was created using an arch I cut from a manilla folder--I stained it with China Blue Distress Ink. The gorgeous little girl image was purchased from Debrina at Land of Enchantment--I can't recommend Debrina's wonderful images highly enough--they are not only gorgeous, but very reasonably priced. You can find them at Paper Pixieland. The paper flowers are from one of K & Company's Ephemera Collections--I bought mine from JoAnn Fabrics. The words are cut out from an old (read "falling apart") children's fairy tale book. (I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the letters on the arch, so I haven't glued those on yet . . . what do you think? With or without?)

Jann, you have again made a quite fantastic arch! Really adorable!

Unfortunately, I could see no blogs for a while. My computer had a crash because of a Trojanvirus. But now everything is okay again!

Have a nice weekend my friend!
