Steampunk Birthday...

If you like this image you can find her HERE.
Musings for today:  
What is it about Steampunk that amuses me so?  For a sedate {Ha!} senior to have a Steampunk screen saver, be so drawn by the images, be so fascinated with the potential of the concept - is just a little odd. 
Ahhh - that explains it - yep indeedy, I'm a little odd.

613 Ave C is having a new challenge - "Happy Birthday".  
The sponsors include Chubby Mermaid and I want to thank the artist, Deborah Muller, for providing this image from her 
"Steampunk Girls Coloring Book"
The team of Paper Artists that Chana and Kathi [at 613 Ave C
have assembled   are so creative - I am in awe of what these gals do!   
I encourage you to take the time and check out 
what they have done for you in the way of inspiration.
And, while you are there, play in the Birthday challenge - 
why not?  So easy!
