I love stamping collages...they are great stress relievers!

There is something about "letting go" that we all can use a little of...

I used a variety of Papertrey sets: Rosie Posie (and Step 2),Teach & Inspire, and Year of the Flowers:Roses.

I love using the Rosie Posie Step 2 on its own...it leaves a nice abstract image.

Hope you have a great day~thanks for stopping by!

  2. Marlena, I'll echo Lisa: gorgeous collage! Rose, grey, black = winning combination; and your layout's flow is just so visually pleasing. Eye-catching and stunning: that's my verdict and I'm sticking with it! Thank YOU for being so encouraging and inspiring, with your cards and your posts. You are definitely a teacher and mentor!
