Do you know your Inner Diva: A Drunken Stampers Challenge

Does your inner diva dance amongst the embers, covered in paint and playa dust from the Nevada Dessert, while your outer diva goes to work?

Perhaps your outer and inner divas are a bit more connected, and I hope they are because frankly it's one of the best gifts women receive: The gift to laugh and cry and celebrate simply because we recognize that life is itself a beautiful adventure.

My own little diva then, has been looking forward to this week's Drunken Stampers Challenge for awhile: Show us your Inner Diva!

My creation is hardly a representation of all that my inner diva is, but it's perfection for the most important part of her: She loves to be free in that hippie sort of way, hates to be the center of attention and adores light.

She's also organized, thus my piece is contained in a shadow box. The hippie, free love, all bodies are beautiful part is floating behind a piece of velum that has been stamped with another Stampin' Up Wheel, this time it's watercolor vine, which was then embossed in silver. The tiny lights are courtesy Ikea (if you're lucky enough to live close to an Ikea ... shop there for tiny, creative stuff ... they have tons and it's cheap).

Glowing, shining, reflecting, glittering, blinding, twinkling ... luminous life intrigues and tires me. It fulfills and satisfies me, so it is a part of my diva.

What wraps your own diety in joy and comfort? What brings her out and makes her dance or sew or sing or cook?

Drop by Drunken Stampers' blog before midnight Friday, Aug. 27 to show us your Inner Diva!
