Happy Birthday Marie!

Yes, today is Marie Antoinette's birthday. I am taking part in festivities. I'm even going out to breakfast to celebrate!
I made this spread for Caryl, whose colours are hot pink and orange. The quote is one that Marie actually did say. Such a misunderstood woman..... but I had to add some cake in there -- she is so linked with cake -- Do you think that if that cake quote ("let them eat cake") wasn't attributed to her that we would all have forgotten her by now???
Please go to Joy's blog (Cupids Charm) to see the other artists taking part in Marie's birthday celebrations! (and to see some tres cool eye candy!!!)

Such a young girl to be flung into being a royal Queen & woman. She had to obtain some immaturity and may have said something that was totally misunderstood. There must have been Paparrazi even back then!!
Hugs, Sherry

She was terribly misunderstood. Wouldn't she be surprised to know about all the people who draw inspiration from her life of beauty today?

That is a beautiful quote of Marie's that you shared. I'm enjoying blog hopping this evening in search of Marie's Soiree as I LOVE her too. I often can't help but think that she had no idea the profound effect she would have on ladies for decades to come.

happy blogging!
