I was inspired to use these colors upon seeing a woman walk into my office building wearing a grey pant suit, with a pale shell pink silk blouse and a cream scarf with little tiny pink pearls woven in the fabric, and, of course, she was wearing a strand of pearls. She looked just exquisite in these colors. I hope she didn’t notice my staring her down to absorb all the details. LOL. Later on that day, I went through my scrapping stash in my mind wondering if I could create a page inspired by Lady Grey wearing those exquisite colors and textures.
Using the salt texture technique I posted earlier, some of the supplies I purchased from the C'est Magnifique ("CM") store which included the French Kiss - Glitz paper, and four staples (a challenge to members in the CM Forum),I created this page.
My title on my page comes from an experience most of us un-goddess like ladies have experienced at one time or another. While vacationing in Hawaii with some very dear friends, I was introduced to this Goddess. She was tall, with long golden tresses, with perfect teeth and a smile, and had gorgeous high cheek bones. I was told she was a Miss something or another, I can’t remember what her title was at this time, but she fit the title perfectly. J I had mousy hair, a gapped tooth smile, and flat cheek bones, and at that moment, I wanted to become invisible in front of the Goddess standing before me. Later on we were invited by the Goddess and some mutual friends to join them for dinner. It would be ungracious of me to try to think of an excuse not to go so since I was invited to stay at my friend’s lovely home on this beautiful island. I put on my best face and went. As everyone was finding a place at the dinner table, the chairs starting filling up quickly around the table and there were chairs vacant next to the Goddess. It quickly became evident to me that I might have to sit next to the Goddess. My heart starts racing, and I’m thinking, “Please don’t seat me next to that pretty girl”. Not only did I not want to sit next to the Goddess, I certainly did not want to be photographed with her as that would only enhance her Goddess like qualities. LOL. Well, all my insecurities faded as the evening went on because this Goddess was warm, friendly, funny and terribly sweet. She truly was a Goddess in every sense of the word by making me feel like we had known each other for a long time.
