Happy Tuesday

I am usually at church working with the kids on Tuesday's, but we are on a break until January. So I am in my scrapbook room working on some new layouts. I was going through all my vintage clip art and found some that I would like to share. Please feel free to use!

Until next time...

Hi there! I have some not so new layouts to post. I am starting to feel better about Pita's passing, so I thought I would post my layouts. These three layouts where so fun to create because they turned out completely different than what I had planned, I love that! The first layout titled dreamer was created with some yummy papers. The balloon paper is Websters pages, the others are My Minds Eye. The flowers were all hand made. The title and butterflies were glittered by taking a foam brush and glue and brushing evenly over each piece and sprinkling glitter over them. I learned that trick from Martha Stewart. The other two layouts were created with My Minds Eye Bella Bella line. I love these papers! The butterflies on the layout titled That Face I printed them out and used the foam brush/glue/glitter technique. I used Martha Stewart frost glitter. That is about all for now! Thanks for stopping by.

If you have a extra few minutes, please leave me a comment so I know you were here!

Until next time...

Great time

I went out to dinner with some special friends last night. Had a wonderful time. It was just what I needed to get my mind off of everything! I am finally back in my scrapbook room working on some layouts. I have been thinking about creating a 12x12 premade baby album. All you would do is add your pictures. Not sure I want to take on a big project now.

Anyway, I was going through my wonderful vintage clipart and I came across this. Please feel free to use this.

Until next time...

I lost my wonderful sweet little friend on Monday. The sadness is overwhelming. I am trying hard to work through this terrible time. I found this poem and it puts in words what I can't say right now.

Treasured Friend

I lost a treasured friend today

The little dog who used to lay

Her gentle head upon my knee

And shared her silent thoughts with me.

She’ll come no longer to my call

Retrieve no more her favourite ball

A voice far greater than my own

Has called her to his golden throne.

Although my eyes are filled with tears

I thank him for the happy years

He let her spend down here with me

And for her love and loyalty.

When it is time for me to go

And join her there, this much I know

I shall not fear the transient dark

For she will greet me with a bark.
