Smell The Flowers

Thank You BPers For All The
Birthday Wishes This Past Week
And For Your BP Cards And
EVEN THE FLOWERS SHOWN HERE!!!
(Sent to me by my Second Mom Who Is On BetterPhoto).
(YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!)

This Image Is Dedicated To All Of You.

You Were Also My Inspiration For This Creation Because
You Have Taught Me To Smell The Flowers, And Appreciate Each One.

You Are All Flowers In My Life.

Having Friends On BP From All Around The World Gives Us Each
A Glance of Each Others Lives And Homes.
The World Where you Live.
Who You Are. What You enjoy Doing or Seeing.
Each Others Gardens of Life.

We are Richer For Knowing Each Other.
Thank you again for touching my world.

-Laura :D

Wow! I wish I was as beautiful as you are, Sis, so that I could do self-portraits like this! Unfortunately, I got stuck with all the brains! LOL! No amount of DDR work could transform me into such a doll! The flowers from Mumj are simply gorgeous! ... and they frame your face so nicely! What a kind and generous soul she is! This is a Winner in MY book too! ... and an instant FAVE for me! :)

Hard to believe this beautiful card slipped past me till today, Pom. It's as lovely as your thoughtful words. No surprise why people like to acknowledge you whenever they have an occasion to do so, or just for being you!
I know your birthday was a happy one ~ and you deserved it, especially after the tough year you've had. Hope the coming year will be the exact opposite for you!

Hi Everyone. :) You are all so good to me and my work.

You do realize that I use DDR on my face, right? :D It has been many years since I was referred to as a [porcelain] doll. And even then it was the Oil of Olay and the Covergirl make up that did the trick!! :)))))

I love these flowers that Mumj gave to me and they just seemed to work so well to layer a face in there. :)))

So.........Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers today! Okay? We all have many blessings!!!

Thanks again!!!

-Laura
