Patty emailed me to say .. did we realise that it's the Art Adventure's first birthday today? Well, no we didn't and we're both amazed to find that a year has gone by already! It seems to have been a success as well as an adventure - I don't think there are many challenge blogs as specific to altered art as ours? If there are others please tell us about them!

So Happy Birthday to us and to all of you who've made this journey with us! We hope that you've grown with and through the art you make, and like us learned something about yourself in the process.

Here's to our next year!! ... and no that's not me and Linda up there, but I like the idea!!

Happy Happy Birthday dear Rosie and Linda!!! When you first started your art adventure blog I was so excited (and still am :) I marked my calendar knowing that there would be lots to celebrate in a year and here we are :)
I certainly have enjoyed your first year! The creativity and sharing in the mixed media arena truly is special. Many many thanks Linda and Rosie for your big part in that!
Here's to another wonderful year of creative fun ABAA ... I'm marking my calendar for 2010 ;)

Happy Birthday to ABAA girls !!!!!!
I found your challenge blog during the winter I believe and since then have grown to know how wonderful, caring people you both are. Funny too :)
I have been taking time off challenges lately to work on other things as you know, but am going to try very hard to do this months challenge with the keys, I have a note to remind me too on my work table :)
Thanks for the great challenges!

Linda and Rosie,

Happy, happy birthday! I know I haven't been submitting anything for a long time, but I always stop in to see what's going on. When autumn arrives, I'll have more time to spend on your very challenging challenges.
Anyway, I can hardly believe it's been a year. Time sure flies when you're having fun.
God bless you both.
