  20. Your pages always are inspiring Patty and it’s a feat to get a succulent to bloom – good for you! I’m going to be forced to go on a hunt in my studio because I appear to have misplaced the next project I want to work on. Maybe, during the hunt, I can dispense with some of my excess!!

  24. And you create so very beautiful with using the materials of those 3 words, my dear Patty . It looks wonderful that you draw around the face, and how you used the lace. I love the splasches of green in between and the flower bird , so lovely both pages are.
    Your succulents, looks also gorgeous with the tiny beautifully coloured flowers !! Enjoy your weekend, my dear friend.

  26. more beautiful pages which will soon make for a most beautiful completed book! Love the hummingbird flower and how true is that quote? Gorgeous photos-your succulents have me so tempted to get a few but I just have no luck with living plants indoors-outside of one small bamboo plant.
