Hi, Friends!!

Do you believe in karma?  I do.  I seriously believe that how you treat someone comes back around to you.  So if you help someone simply because you can, in one way or another, your life will be blessed.  With that in mind, please check out this GiveForward site and help this young lady out, if at all possible.  Your help will be very much appreciated.  Thanks for contributing in any way you can.

Merry Christmas, Brooklyn!

I've been collecting American Girl dolls for a little while now, and my great-niece has a couple of them, too (at this time I have 19).  When my mother died, I ended up with her car, which she had piled a bunch of her clothes into.  I didn't want to throw all these things out, since some were brand new with tags, but I didn't want them for myself.  I've been going through them to see which ones I can use to make doll clothes, as I have lots of patterns for 18" dolls.  I found a t-shirt in the prettiest shade of green, and I used my Heritage Ruffled T-Shirt Dress pattern from Liberty Jane to make this cute little dress for Brooklyn.  I ordered her a pair of lime green high top cons to go with it.  So cute!!  I forgot to put the shoes on my Nellie while she was so politely modeling the dress for me.  But that's okay, since she loves boots!  LOL!! 

That's our lovely Daisy checking Nellie out.

I lurk around a lot of digi scrap sites.  And occasionally I participate in a challenge or two, but it's been quite a while since I was inspired enough to just jump in and scrap.  Actually, it's been almost a year.  It was just before Thanksgiving last year when I found out my mother only had a short time to live, and I spent the last 2 1/2 months of her life with her as much as possible.  Since she passed in January, I just haven't been very creative.

But today I was trolling around at Scrappity-Doo-Dah and came upon the Bird Cage challenge for October 16-31.  The designer for this part of the month is LiseteScrap, and she has provided the cutest little mini kit to create with!  The challenge requires that all pieces of the kit be used in your layout.  If you need a fab mini to scrap Halloween photos with, jump over to Scrappity-Doo-Dah and check out this challenge.  You won't be disappointed!   Here's my layout I created with this wonderful freebie.  You can click on the image to go to the gallery and check out all the creative ways this mini has been used.

At 4:32 am on Sunday, January 17, 2010, I lost my sweet little Mother to her battle with lung cancer. I held her hand and told her I loved her with her last breath.
It's so hard to watch your loved ones slowly slip away from you due to a horrible disease.

She loved her little dog, Bandit, dearly. He has lived with her for over 12 years. Now he lives with me.
I'll miss my Mother forever, but I'm so thankful that she is no longer in pain.

Coffee House Pumpkins

I wanted to make something cute for fall, so I made these little hybrid pumpkins.

Coffee House by Designs by TerrellS (The Espresso Scrap Shoppe) at Divine Digital. Perfect Pumpkin templates by Kelleigh Ratzlaff.

Other Supplies: 3D Crystal Lacquer, Stickles gold, red, and green glitter glue, 18 kt. Gold Leafing Pen, Artistic Wire, Straw Paper Wire, raffia, Micro Beads, Prima paper flower, Making Memories square and round gold brads, silk leaves, and tree stick for the stems.


Did this to myself at work the other day! Mashed my hand between two rollers going in opposite directions at 1200 rpms! If I hadn't jerked it out with my other hand almost the second it happened, it could actually have popped the end of my finger off, instead of just having to put 10 stitches in it. Didn't break anything either, but it sure felt like it, and is still sore. Doctors said it was just severely bruised. Swelled up twice as big as this the first night, and then the stitches on the left side tried to pop open. If it isn't one thing, it's always another, isn't it? !!

Challenge Layout!

I did this layout of my sweet little great-nephew and great-niece for Kathryn Estry's It's Only Words Challenge at Digitals. You can get this wonderful word art to play with, and if you follow her guidelines for the challenge, you get another goodie! Check out her challenge HERE. And while there, check out my layout HERE. I used her word art, plus her wonderful BB5 Grab Bag (Personal Use). If you love angels and fall colors, you should check out this grab bag. Credits are posted in the gallery with the layout. Leave a little love if you like it........LOL!!
