A Look at a Journal Page and Hydrangeas

Now that the OWOH Event is over it is time to catch up on
some other things which I am passionate about
but before doing so
I would just like to say a wonderfully big
Thank you so much
for all the amazing comments I received during the past 2 weeks
all the many people who have decided to follow me -
I am truely humbled!!!

So now for some garden pleasures and a peep at a couple of pages I am working on for my
new Fabric Altered Journal.
It is coming to the end of Summer here in Australia and we are starting to see a change
in the colours of the hydrangeas

These have just been picked today!

The pinks are taking on a greenish/pinkish hue.
Don't these look stunning!

And after they have been left to dry in the vase for a couple of weeks
they end up looking more like this!
Just so soft, papery and dreamy.

currently has the most gorgeous images of
her dried Hydrangeas too so go and check out her blog.

Have a Wonderful Sunday.
Love, Suzy

This entails a total number of 60 pages (if that is what you choose )
to create on.
Even though the past week has been full on with the
I have really enjoyed putting together a number of pages
which are still very much in the planning stages
with the trusty wooden pegs keeping it all in some

It so much reminds me of Pandora's Box
that I think that is what it shall be called.
A few glimpses here lets you into some of what
shall be revealed

Wishing you all a wonderful week!
x Suzy
