It's Time to Rush

I'm joining my 150+ sorority sisters around the world in the inauguration of the Bloggerette Sorority. I hope to visit all my sister's blogs eventually to see what I'm certain will be some of the most creative rushes(?) ever!
We were to take our "official" bloggerette photo and create something, anything, using that image.
I chose a 50 cent metal thingy from last weeks garage sale expedition as my base, added some fabric flowers, old pearls, vintage lace, the "official" photo, and what seems an appropriate verse. The author is unknown to me and I did take the liberty of altering the words some.

And that's me peeking out of the bottom flower!
I hope everyone had as much fun as I did rushing for our sorority. A huge thank you to our fearless leader, Karen of Some Days Are Diamonds for organizing all of this.

Kimberly said...

Hi JoAnne,

Very pretty and I love the colour of the beads. xx

Mollye said...

Hi new sister! I am so happy to meet you and hope we become true sister friends in our sorority journey. I apologize up front that this message is a "cut and paste" message to all the sorority sisters because I wanted at least to become a follower of all of you and take a moment to say hello. For those who may not know my youngest son was killed last week and we buried him on Tuesday. I had started my project before that tragic event and am not finished but I did post what I've done on it so far. If you have visited me already I thank you and if not I invite you. I am just not quite at the point of being able to think of something to say individually at this time. I will soon hopefully be able to be active and visiting everyone. Love you already, Mollye

I love your little face peeking out of the flower! What a clever way to work in what I found to be the hardest part of the project...a photo of me...oh no! LOL

Thanks so much for stopping by my place. I'm delighted to have you as a sister!


Scrap Vamp said...

Thank you for inviting me to tea! That altered Alice book is to die for!

Sherry said...

Great idea to use things you found garage sale shopping. Your creation is lovely, and I love your little picture in the corner. I clicked to enlarge the picture so I could read the verse and got a better look at the picture of you. It is so nice to meet you.
