Art Smorgasbord - International Women's Day

As some of you may know, my wife and I have two daughters, who are our pride and joy.  Although they are not perfect, they are loving, highly intelligent, and strong, just like the other two women in my  life… my mother and my wife.  In celebration of the International Women's Day, which took place on March 8th, I am dedicating this post to my daughters and all young women who are the future of the world.

Arnoldo...I really like your Tim style tag that you've entered in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Shabby Chic Challenge. It's very nicely done. I love the colors, the simulated grass and the beautiful cross cut out that you have centered on the tag. I love the ribbon and the "Life" key as well! It certainly is fitting key to be on the same tag with the cross! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy

I just kept coming back to your photo of the tag being held by your mannequin - it's just a delight to see & to ponder over - the whole photo. I particularly like your staging of the little scene.
