in June of this year my young Marie Antoinette (below) began her round robin journey… four special friends each have their own themes for their pages (winged things, birds, divas and heart art)
… the plan was to create a book after everyone had a chance to make something for the various themes … the sizes were to be in the 6 x 4″ (postcard) range
arriving first in Switzerland to visit Margaret in her sumptuous salon with trappings from all over Europe
next stop Texas … for tea and delicious cake with Linda … that girl gets around!
on to see Nathalie in Missouri who had a fete planned (Petite Trianon) decking Marie in some seriously beautious bling
last stop before heading back home to Virginia … New Zealand … to listen to some of Marie’s favorite piano fortes with Carole … and posing for yet another pretty portrait
finally making her way home again … full of sweet memories of her adventures with the QB5 ladies
here are the fronts … you can double click for a grand closeup of the stunning details of each postcard creation
and most of the backs … Nathalie your maison did not want to flip over, but the back can be seen in your sampler above 😉
some of the ladies will be zuttering their pages … I am not sure I can bear to punch holes in mine and think I will alter a special box for these Maries to take up residence in
I am SO thrilled with these round robin creations … hard to put into words … as soon as everyone else’s pages are returned to them you’ll be able to see those posted on the blogs above
have I mentioned how much I also Love the postal services all around the world … it’s a beautiful thing!!!
