Bag of Jewels

Hello and a very warm welcome to you all .
 Time for my Maja Design May project . 
Today on my Blog I am showcasing a little bag 
containing some tags with some of my very fave stamps /quotes.

When I began scrapbooking back in 2003 , I loved creating Off the Page projects.  
I often open them now, and enjoy looking at my style and techniques back then.
I just adore this hobby called scrapbooking x
to go to Maja Design Blog 


I created the bag and tied it with soft pink ribbon .
 I added a resin rose with some diecut leaves and foliage stretching across the top
 like a sprig of spring blooms.
When I saw this magnificent Sofiero collection, 
I just had to create a romantic little bag full of affirmations about Art and life.
When I tenderly hold this little bag I can feel the essence of nature flowing through my hands into my soul. The blooms reflected in the papers are so romantic and delicate, so Soft  and velvety and I can almost smell the fragrance of the roses and blossoms .

 I imagine myself strolling down a garden path discovering a magnificent secret garden full of color and exquisite creations, rose petals and pear blossoms, all swaying happily in the sunshine  . Pinks and soft mauve and blue are my very favourite flowers to grow in my garden and in the spring they all pop their little faces toward the sunshine and gentle light . Perfectly glorious .

Nature to me is perfect ART and so many delicate details of perfection 
are all imitated in these glorious papers. 
To me Marie does an amazing job of capturing the very essence of nature.
 From the colors, the shapes and the subtle touches in the background of these papers, 
I can see and feel the captivating beauty.

thanks for popping by and taking the time to leave me some love
until we meet next time have fun scrapping x
