:::Purple Sampler:::

WOW! We had so many gorgeous entries this week! It was hard to chose just six! I had to add more – you ladies ROCK in purple!!!!! thanks for playing!



This weeks theme at Gothic Arches is “Purple”…my favorite color. I am a February baby, my birthstone (amethyst) and birthflower (violet) are also my favorite color. What do you think of when the color purple is mentioned? Violets growing sweetly in a meadow? Rich jewels on the Queen’s crown? A deep rich starry sky? Whatever the thought may be we want to see it here at Gothic Arches.

A bit about our hostess:

My name is Nancy Maxwell James and I live in Michigan with my husband and our 3 fur babies. I have three children: Ian who is a collage student, Andrew who is serving in the U.S. Army in Iraq, and a daughter Allison who is also a student. I love mixed media, cards, scrapbooking and genealogy. I also love all the wonderful artists and friends I have met through blogging.

In celebration of my birthday this week I selected purple as our theme. I have always loved the color and have many trinkets and keepsakes that I collect that are purple. My Grandmother also loved the color and passed down many precious heirlooms to me because we shared that love.

You many visit my blog http://vintagepapers.blogspot.com to see more of my artwork.

Can’t wait to see the pretty purple creations this week! 🙂
