Going to Graceland, Love Lettters, Etc.

This month I am going to Graceland to see the home of Elvis for the first time. So when I saw the theme of "Rock Stars" at Think Monday, Think ATC, you know what the first thing to enter my mind was. Here's my mini tribute to Elvis.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Check this Out.....

It's also the beginning of a new month and that means at the Vintage Veranda we are saying good-by to Jacqueline deGroot as our Guest Artist and welcoming Vicki Chrisman as our Guest Artist for February. The theme at VV this month is Love letters & Stolen Kisses, and Vicki has graced our gallery with an amazing love letter box as well as a tutorial on how to make paper flowers. You will have to check this out - gorgeous work!
Sarah has supplied the Love quizzes and trivia to go along with our theme -- lots of fun!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Continuing with my calendar I'm making, this is my page for February. I used the little Valentine Fairies that I made as part of my DT work for Oxford Impressions.

Louise, I am commenting on all of the above. Your Elvis card is wonderful and the beautiful craftwork below is just amazing. Lucky you, going to Graceland. Now I have the Paul Simon song in my head and it won't go away.

How fun that you are going to Graceland! I have yet to get there, but it is on my list of places to go in the US. Elvis had such a huge impact on US music. What a fabulous opportunity!

Love your calender!!

Louise, I love all those pieces, including the stand-up valentine. Your Elvis piece is perfectly wonderful and captures all the "King" was.

Graceland is just north on the same highway that my high school is. Graceland was not Elvis' place when I went to HS. The area has changed a LOT!!! But Graceland is still elegant and you will have a blast.

Sarah said...

How I love your calender pages!
