~~~~TAAA DAAAA~~~~

This beautiful piece of art is from the so lovely Jenny Holiday! I can not believe that I was so lucky to be one of her swap partners! I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, THIS! I asked for anything sparkley AND "JENNY". I wanted this to reflect herself, a piece that she would make for herself. : ) Each square is so very special. I tried to get individual shots of squares, but some where blurry (my trade mark). Then I saw that some compositions with more than one square showed her piece in another light! I love the over lapping in this photo.

My photo is blurry, not her photo. The ribbon comming up like a wave and the sea glass and

Jenny Holiday's Collage for ME!

Like I said, the only information I gave Jenny was that I like all things glittery and wanted this to be a piece by her. But you will not believe all of the things on here that do mean something to ME! My Dad would go to the Mall with us. It was an hour drive. He would go off to Sears and come back to our meeting place, always with a pretzel in his hand! : ) My Mom and Dad took us to Lake Michigan for our vacation every year! I collected some glass and many stones. My Grandmother Fraser had a button jar that I loved to spill out in the bedroom off of the kitchen. (Jenny, This Bedroom would make you faint onto the lovely bedcovering. It was All So feminie and gorgeous from, I guess the late 40's, complete with a fluffy tiered skirt dressing table in a kidney shape and all of the necessities. It was one of my Aunts Bedrooms.
I have Many Many photos for you! I wish you could see it in person because my abilities do not even come close to capturing the beauty of this piece!

Notice the confetti hearts she included in the package!

She Takes The Cake!

Of Coarse we must have CAKE!!! : ) I think that Jenny might have painted this delicous cake AND some of the wallpaper backing the collage!!! : )
So Sweet HAPPY


Notice the "M" and then see the "HAPPY" !!! That's Mary!!!
Stars in the night! Star Power!

I think that the cake that you can see the bottom of in this photo is PAINTED BT JENNY! I thought it was a cut out! SooooTalented! Enlarge the photos to see the deatail!

Jenny's collage is so pretty, I love all the old pictures.

She had a great idea for a swap there, I wish I had taken part, but had no time. Maybe I will just make one for myself:)

Love all your pictures

best wishes Ginny

Loved your collage as well as the collage by Jenny. They are both beautiful. Those tags are absolutely divine!

I'm going over to check out your items in Etsy. Those tags.
