Time Stands Still...







I've been wanting to do a layout about where I live, since it is so special to me.. perhaps it's because I grew up in this beautiful place or because we are all deeply connected to nature.... whatever the reason is....even on the grumpiest day I am having, all I need to do is take a short drive to feel my energy changing and my very being infused with a deep sense of well being....
Lots of stamping, die cuts and water coloring complete this page.....

Day's end...






I was not able to get this layout finished in time for the Reveal for Case No: 208 over at CSI but I really wanted to finish it because I just LOVED those images of my little cousins fast asleep after the BIG day they had as attendant's at their Uncle Normans wedding!
A BIG thanks to Emma for such a great sketch!!

Make a Wish...




This was my submission for Case File 209 over at CSI this past week... So many talented ladies over there, it's hard not to be inspired!!
As my journaling states... a very dear and life long friend just turned 63 and I was lucky enough to find a photo of her and I celebrating one of her VERY earliest parties!!
I hand painted the background stripes... embossed the polka dot paper and striped paper strips behind the photo...
It was one of those incredibly chaotic weeks where keeping it simple was all I could manage!! hee hee
