This is beautiful, Lisa! I love Amelia Earhart. I did an 11 x 14 collage of her a while back & used both images that you've used in yours. I especially love the the lower one. Very nice!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs, Diane

Hello Lisa - your work is always so so beautiful and delicate. Every time I see a new creation, I go all warm and tingly inside. I guess that means it touches my soul.

Thank you so much for the birthday wishes too, btw.

You're awesome.

What a great choice for the theme and look how wonderful it is too! Really like this one. Love all the rusted bits you've added. Isn't that always the way. You think you've salvaged enough then find later you could have uses for 10 times the amount! LOL!
