Pretty in Pink

“I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.”
- Audrey Hepburn

The picture on this tag is a 20-year-old picture of my daughter at a ballet recital. Her bright blue costume and her crown are covered by lots of pink flowers.I was not a girly girl, but our daughter was, always preferring pink dresses, tutus, bathing suits - whatever. The Hepburn quote reminds me of Suzanne as a woman, despite the fact that she now spends her days in the dark blue scrubs of an Emergency Room doctor. She definitely believes in miracles! The background of the tag is gesso, watercolor, stamped, and drawn. This was a fun and easy tag, probably because the subject is so dear to my heart!
