Dressing up

… made for the Summer Tea Party on Wednesday Stamper over the next two weeks . Last year I immediately fell in love with Jean-Paul Gaultier’s "Madonna " inspired Spring 2007 collection. Just loved Dita Von Teese’s outfit and some of the others (can be viewed here ). Thought I’d alter Dita’s look a bit for the party. Finally another spread done in the journal I bought from Kelly. The white-black strip along the side uses an old Penny Black ornament stamp.

… gemacht für die Sommer-Teeparty bei den Mittwochstemplern während der nächsten zwei Wochen. Letztes Jahr hab ich mich in Jean-Paul Gaultier’s "Madonna "-inspirierte Frühjahrskollektion 2007 verguckt. Fand Dita Von Teese’s Outfit und viele andere einfach megaklasse (mehr zu sehen hier ) Dachte, ich verändere etwas ihr Outfit und hab endlich mal wieder eine Doppelseite im Journal gemacht, dass ich von Kelly gekauft habe. Gestempelt ist der weiß-schwarze Streifen mit einem alten Penny Black-Ornament-Stempel.

How about some chilling Cuban rhythm for the party? What a fab song! *** Wie wär’s mit einem chillendem kubanischem Rhytmus für die Party? Tolles Lied!

My über-talented friend Helga Strauss (and owner of ARTchix Studio ) finally started her own blog!! Welcome to blogland Helga, look forward to catching up with you. Couldn’t resist showing this gorgeous ATC she made with a rose transparency (which you can download from her blog). Looks like she’s also offering fun challenges!

Meine übertalentierte Freundin Helga Strauss (ihr gehört auch ARTchix Studio hat nun endlich einen Blog!! Willkommen im Blogland Helga, freu mich dort vorbeizuschauen. Kam nicht umhin dieses tolle ATC von ihr zu zeigen, dass sie mit Rosen-Transparentfolie gestaltet hat (Rosenfoto gibt’s auf ihrem Blog). Schaut so aus, als würde sie uns mit tollen Themen zum Mitmachen auffordern.

Blog awards keep going round and round in blogland. Marion , Nellie , Jacky , Sam , Laury awarded me with the Brilliant Blog award, and from Sam also the Blog of Distinction award. And a Wylde Woman Award also just appeared. Got it from Dani Rosie  and Kathy !! Thank you all so much, I feel very honored and flattered. Time has been scarce lately, but blogland is so incredibly creative, encouraging and supportive! I need to get a new home pc, better hurry up!!

My ole friend Kristy (hehe, I just had to say that) just surprised and honored me with the Blogging Forever Friend Award! I kind of avoid passing on awards since it’s too difficult to choose but a few!!! Yet this one will have to be passed on.

Here are the rules for this award:
1. Only 5 people allowed to receive this award 2. 4 dedicated followers of your blog. 3. One has to be new to your blog and live in another part of the world. 4. You must link back to who ever gave you the award.

Tina – we go way back and I hope she doesn’t regret offering to help with the WS site

Neda – she found my blog a long time ago and it’s been a pleasure ever since, n’est-ce pas ma chère?

Helga – we go way back as well and I’m tickled pink she’s in blogland

Sanja – a lovely and talented woman I met through the WS blog two years ago

Sam – a fairly new blogging friend from Australia who is – like all Australians – most talented. I enjoy her fishy adventures with the Terminator 🙂
