I created Daphne  with the same concept in mind as 
Mademoiselle Flora.
In fact,think I might just redesign Flora to match!
I used the same background
but came out with a different Look.
I like the aged looked this has.
Daphne's image  is the work of Herbert von Herkomer 
titled "Daphne"
She is such a Beautiful Piece was fun to work with!

The Background was provided by Karen,The Graphics Fairy 
and can be found here.

~Grow Old with Me the Best is Yet to Be~

 Hello Everyone! 
Time seems to be Flying these days! 
I Have been Neglecting My Wonderful Blog Friends! 
Its Time for Me to Get on the Ball and Visit with you again!
This Little Sweetpea is my Mother when she was 4 years old!
She will be turning 80 Soon 
and we are having a 
Surprise Birthday Party 
for her in June! 
She will Be most Definitely be Surprised
because her Birthday isn't until 
the End of August! 
We  told her that we are having a Family BBQ 
when my Brother arrives from Alaska that day so we didn't 
Scare the Daylights out of her. We will just have some Added Guests.
Looking Forward to it and I can't think of Anyone 
who Deserves a Party in their Honor more than My Mother!
 I Have been Diligently 
Making Special Invitations to Send out as Keepsakes.
I was Cutting so Much Paper for awhile that you couldn't see the Floor!
I Used Multiple Layers of Images.
The Lacy Edge came from a French Holy Card
from Karen of the Graphics Fairy. I used my scalloped scissors to give it the Lace Border Effect. Then a Layer of Lovely Blue Paper and Her Picture that I actually Transferred Digitally on the Lacy Background Paper.
You Know me! I can't just Stop there! 
I added the Butterfly and the Poem!
The Label the Poems is Printed on is from Karen as Well. 
It is a French Perfume Label !I coveredthe Graphics Because I thought the 
Detailing of the Label itself was Perfect for my Poem!
This Is my Mothers Graduation Photo! 
She Graduated from High School in 1950 in a little Town
called Blooming Prairie! 
Their High School Team name was the Blossoms! 
Yep, The Blossoms!
Apparently their Foot Ball Team was Pretty Tough!!
It Kinda Makes me think of the Johnny Cash song 'A boy Named Sue'
 I cannot tell you How Many Butterflies I Cut out.....
It was in the Hundreds though!
I Know..I Know.. There is No Hope for Me! Lol!
I Love Butterflies!
Mom and Dad on their Wedding Day
Thats Me My Mom is Holding!
Look at the Red Lipstick! 
That is my Grandma Mabel on the Left!
Boy do I have some Great Stories to tell about her!
She was a Very Proper Woman with a Marvelous Sense of Humor!
I will Share Later!
I Love my Mothers Smile is this Picture!
My Apologizes for being so Long Winded! 
I think I just wanted to Share with you how
Wonderful My Mother is!
Thank you for Listening!
Soo.. for Being so wonderful and making it to the bottom of my Post,
Here is something to Share! 
 Just Right Click and Save to your Computer!
 Thank You so Much Debra for 
Giving us this Opportunity to Share Every Week!
 Thank You Karen 
For Providing and Sharing 
such Wonderful Images for us All to Enjoy!!

~Mademoiselle Flora~

Good Morning Everyone!
Hope Everyone had a Wonderful Mothers Day
and were Treated like Queens! 
I Know each and Everyone of you Deserve that!
Here is a Little bit of the Process 
I Use when I am doing a Digital Collage .
I Start off with my Foundation Image.
This one if from Karen , The Graphics Fairy 
and Can be found Here.
Then it a Matter of Layers and Transparencies 
and Playing around with images
to find the Right Combination.
You Know How Much I Love these 
Regency Era Images. 
I call them my Jane Austen Girls.
I Love these Austen Girls but they don't seem right
with the Color of Background I Have Chosen! 
They seem More Ethereal to Me 
and Perhaps be Better with
More Softer Colors.
 So here is Mademoiselle Flora!
She is Called 'Clematis' and is an Illustration 
from the Artist Hubert von Herkomer. 
I think she is Lovely 
and has a 
Sister Print named Daphne 
that I plan on doing a Similar Collage 
to make a Matched Set.
You know me.. 
I will Probably refine Her even more 
because I simply can't help myself!!
Thank You Karen for another 
Wonderful Brag Monday and Once again 
for you Generosity!
And Thank you to Debra for
Hosting us on

I Know You All Understand!
My Father Required more Surgery last week due to Complications from his Cancer Treatment. He Gave us all a Bit of a Scare but is now Recovering and doing much Better!
