Wow, I don't know where to start. So I will start at the end LOL. That photograph is absolutely devine, did you take it? Love flowers :)

Super duper giveaway, although I think I am first so I doubt that would help me, oh and we have no B&N stores here in Canada, but lovely, lovely gifts all the same :)

As for your journal, A maze ing......
I love the colors, that poor lady, the texture is so yummy, you make me want to journal, and I just love your sense of humor, so glad I found your blog :)

Thank you too for the list of online classes too :)



My goodness Woman! This post is jam packed with info, links and temptations temptations temptations. HOW in the world did you keep it all straight! You are the link Queen amongst other most deserving titles heehee ... the lady you're sharing with us reminds me of the serious look of a suffragette ... thank you for her AND your pages ... good golly Miss Molly talk about inspiring! You used the cherry blossom tissue so sweetly ... have I told you today you inspire me and make me punctuate with exclamation marks LOL
Thank you for always being so gracious, generous and grand *ggg* (ggg means *giggle* when typed in German).
My head is spinning with delight ... must go back for more lookie looks.
Many thanks dear friend


Dear me...I followed a link to your blog from another and now I've been lost in all this beauty for the past hour! Congratulations on your milestone and thank you for the lovely image and the inspiration you've shared.


PS...I've added a link to your giveaway on my blog...had to share!

Autumn Clark

Oh, Sue! You've made my day with this little shoutout. I am thrilled to have contributed in any way to your inspiration. I adore your page. What a fun image! Thank you so much for all of your ideas on graffer's tape. Back in the day when I first began altering books I was crazy about using cloth bandaging tape. I covered book spines with it and was able to paint it any way I desired. Meager, but rewarding...
PS. I've posted about your giveaway on my blog. You are so funny in your reporter tone. I often get on a proper English tone. Ha ha!

Leanne Shawler

Sue!!! My oh my :) Not only do you create beautiful wee velvet flowers but that is just an amazing journal page. I'm doing Hope's "Nourish Your Soul" journaling class right now and this technique will be PERFECT for this second prompt.

There are so many journaling classes but I can't take them all, alas ...

And your giveaway is awesome :)


Oh my goodness! I love your journal page! Now you've inspired me to work on an art journal this week.

And what a beautiful giveaway! Congrats on 100 posts!

Joanie Hoffman

What a wonderful way to end a posting: "bless your little souls...". For some reason this just gave me a huge reason to smile.
and thank you, with giggles, for the giveaway.


Sue, you do know I love you, don't you? Just coming here makes me smile. And, just look at all of the pretties.

I do believe we need to be neighbors because I know you would keep me inspired and motivated.

Dorothy Sutton. My mother has Suttons in her family. Maybe we are related.

Your giveaway is fantastic. I will cross all of my appendages.


Of course I gave you a shout out on my sidebar! I sure hope I'm the lucky one you choose!

Sweet Annabelle

First time looking at your blog - I came over from Jill Ruth's to peek at your giveaway. WHICH I'd love to win! Must say that I picked up a journal similar to that a few years ago, much smaller in black and red.

Congrats on #100!

I'm soooooooo entering this! ha! I dug out my art journal yesterday and am so ready to do some pages in it. Life (weddings) has gotten in my way lately... Love all your stuff...as always.

Carole Brungar

Just thought I'd pop by and let you know the journal class is now open indefinitly YAY! (due to pressure from the girls, not to mention bribery! lol)
Your journal page is lovely, I have never heard of gaffer tape? Sounds very interesting. Congrats on 100 posts, may you have many more!!


These pages are very inspirational indeed. Thank you for the great tips.They are much appreciated :)


Wow, Sue! Love your journal page (I don't create collage, but ohBOY do I ever love it). I'll be sure to visit the links you've shared - so many wonderful places to visit - so little time.
Hubby is rushing me off the computer, so I'll say 'Bye' for now - and thanks for the opportunity to participate in your gorgeous (GORGEOUS) giveaway.
I'm adding your blog to my blogroll & will visit soon!


Love your blog, love Dorothy Sutton, too! Pssst -- I'd love to win your giveaway, as well. Thanks for the post. . .


I do not know how relevant to this blog. A lot of talk but little that is specifically useful.
However, with the last author I agree.
