I took the theme of "Birds of a Feather" and put little chocolate eggs into golden heart boxes... Please take a chocolate and join my page for the Valentine's Day party!
I've just joined the Soul Journalling Group on Yahoo and am beginning to make some mixed media pieces based on the original prompts by Sarah Whitmire.

Do have a square if you'd prefer it to one of the eggs.
And then go visit more partiers at the Birds of a Feather Party
