Paper Bag Swap and Spring Peonies

Peonies are one of my favorite flowers and these are from our garden.

As promised, here's the paper bag book I received from Cathee from Art and Soul, my swap partner from the Yahoo Altered Art group.

Beautiful, right?  Love the colors and ribbons she used.

 I love that she celebrated all the beautiful things of Spring.

 Thanks again, Cathee for this awesome keepsake and to Dee Moran for organizing the swap.

Hope you are inspired by the Spring and are creating.

Hey Nelly, the peonies are nice. I saw a different type of Peony just yesterday. The flowers were pink with a shaggy bright yellow center and they were so striking, I actually had to back up the car to get a look at what they were. I went online and almost ordered one.

Hi Nelly,
I'm here from your comment on Strathmore. Fun to explore new blogs. I had peonies just that color this spring too. I love them. And sure enjoyed the beautiful paper bag book. It inspires ideas for me.
