Even after 50

Change is beautiful even after 50!  Can this be true.  Oh, heavens I do hope so or I am doom!  lol...
Berry 71 blue offer up this challenge for November.  Their mood board is filled with spring time beauty.  But, what grabbed me was the goldfish jumping out of the bowl and aiming itself toward the empty bowl.  I rather see myself this way.  The first 50 years filled with wonderful memories and experiences is behind me and the next 50 if wide open.

 I had these fabulous 7 Dots papers and couldn't wait to put them to use.  One of their DT members showed how to use vellum with these flowers.  Awesome idea and it is the perfect goldfish color.  Don't you agree!

 I misted the papers with black and white paints and touched up the flowers with some gold flecked paint.  The cogs were inked and stained. 
 Awwww but you can't entered the second half of life without a bit of whimsy so here is a phone from my youth.  The bingo card is for my future...chuckles! ; )
 Well, thanks for stopping by to hear what the papers are saying today.  Hope you enjoyed your visit here.  Come again soon.
