“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Stars and anniversaries

The challenge this week on Take a word is

The image of the lady is from a collage CD called 'Fairytale Follies'
from Lisa Kettell's Art Fire shop
The rest of the images
 are from Deviant Scrap.

It just so happens that I'm having my FOUR year blog anniversary give-away
starting today:)

I've probably written about this before...
The whole reason I started blogging is because I bought an awesome book 
Lisa Kettell
'Altered Art Circus'
The photos and the stories were so very inspiring to me....
I took that book (and a sketch diary) everywhere.
It was like an escape into a sweet colorful fantasy land, 
where everything is happy.
I found the artist's blog and I was hooked. 

My give away is star themed and it happens to have a 
few Lisa Kettell products in it too.
