A Little Lace and Pearls

Hello everyone! I thought I would try something a little different in my collages. I had this plate and decided to try to use it for the background. Just for a change. The words on this collage come from an old hymnal. Double click on the photos and you can get a better view.

This image is from Paper Whimsy. I just think she is lovely. She has a book laying in front of her.
I love this little charm book and it opens. I hung an earring on the bow below it. It just sparkles.
I added an image inside the charm. I think it's Joseph holding baby Jesus.
I stitched pearls all the way around the doily. If you know me-I'm a pearl girl!
Yes, every promise in This Book is mine...and yours! My hope is that YOU know that. Let me know what you think about this collage. My husband thinks I'm weird. :)

I hope your Thursday is sunny and warm! Thanks for stopping and leaving your wonderful comments.

I'm linking up with Doni @ Faith, Grace and Crafts for Thursday Pearls and Lace. Come join in!

I think it is very pretty! And always great to use what you have on hand. I think there are very few husbands who don't think we are a bit weird. My hubby doesn't understand how I can stay in pajamas from days on end and just crochet or craft the day away. He certainly doesn't get the upcycling thing with tin cans and cereal boxes. When I ask what he thinks, she just smiles and nods and says "nice." :) Have a great day! Tammy
