52 Starlets Challenge - Marilyn Monroe

It's hard to believe Marilyn Monroe would be 85 this week if she were still alive.  The photo was Googled and the flowers are from Christina Renee at Scrapbookgraphics.

  7. This is beautiful, Marie. It looks a bit inspired by Anahata Katkin. Is it? It certainly features Marilyn in a most beautiful way!

  8. The bright side for such an early death is that she will be always young and fresh... Your piece highlights this (and her vulnerability too - fragile as the flowers are).

  11. Very worthwhile blog post. Your web property is swiftly starting to be among my top picks.
    There was a general lack of knowledge about the nature of JFK's drug use and sexual shenanigans even after his death. It would not surprise me if this was managed and agreed to, or asked for by the Kennedy clan. They still value their image even though Old Joe has been exposed on Arts & Entertainment. Maybe Maria Shriver and Arnold will make a run for the Presidency.
