Happily Ever After . . .

Karin's Journal Page
"Happily Ever After"
(Click anywhere to see the details!)

Although this journal page was originally created for Karin's Teesha Journal (my art group's on-going round robin), I think it works nicely as a tongue in cheek entry for this week's "relationships" challenge at the Three Muses. Unfortunately, I think most of us have kissed one too many frogs! LOL!

Hope you have an enchanted day!

Credits: Thanks to Moonlight Journey for the girl on the frog, the frog and the large flowers (all on the Fairy Tale digi-sheet). Special thanks to Tumble Fish Studio @ DeviantScrap.com for the striped border, the random words located in the borders, the word "moonbeam" and the colorful wings. Many thanks also to Holliewood Studio @ DeviantScrap.com for the crown and the little fairy house, to Julia - Ceremony for the hearts (altered), to Normal Frances - Flickr and Nancy Baumiller - Crowabout for bits of border and the little guy and to Dover Publications for the butterflies. The numbered border is from Pringle Hill Studio.

Oh Wow! I wouldn't have considered that this most beautiful collage as "tongue in cheek" because, when you think about it, it is so true. Strangely enough, Kathy of Amusing Muses was thinking along the same lines and her picture gives the same message in her own unique way as you do in yours.
Terri, I am your biggest fan. Your work just blows me away. This one is sensational.

I have to tell you, I was looking through GSO and came across this fabulous Zetti and mistakenly read the wrong attribution and got all in a huff thinking THAT PERSON has stolen Terri's work and taken credit for it!!!! Then I scrolled and saw your name. Phew. I was all ruffled up about it. And THEN so happy that it was you and you were there!! This really is a beauty Terri!
