Time to learn Czech
Allen and I are super excited...we are going to Prague on our honeymoon! Prague is the place I have dreamed about going to for years and it will happen in March! For those of you who don't know much about Prague, here a small description I found online:
"This magical city of bridges, cathedrals, gold-tipped towers and church domes, has been mirrored in the surface of the swan-filled Vltava River for more than ten centuries. Almost undamaged by WWII, Prague's compact medieval centre remains a wonderful mixture of cobbled lanes, walled courtyards, cathedrals and countless church spires all in the shadow of her majestic 9th century castle that looks eastward as the sun sets behind her. Prague is also a modern and vibrant city full of energy, music, cultural art, fine dining and special events catering to the independent traveller's thirst for adventure. It is regarded by many as one of Europe's most charming and beautiful cities."
We are going for a week and have already bought a stack of guide books to make plans about what we want to see.
Some interesting sites include:
Prague Castle (the largest castle in the world) - It includes St. George's Basilica and it one of about 2000 castles in the area.
Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock
Prague National Gallery
The Lennon Wall
The Charles Bridge
:) Can't Wait!
Created this page by misting Tattered Angels over a doily that was place on top of water color paper. I then misted the outer edges of the page. The flowers are a punch, I layered three flowers and put foam dots between each one. The top flower has a thick layer of stickles on it. TFL

Create flower embellishment by punching out 3 shapes in sturdy paper.
Paint the flowers or coat the entire shape with Stickles. Once they are dry , put a foam dot on top of 2 of the flowers. Layer the 3 flower shapes on top of each other. Add more Stickles and a crystals as you desire.
This is from the Scrap Muse december kit collection. I try and give scrapbook pages to every one in my family for the holidays and this is one of the give away pages. The photo is of my family on my second christmas. This is my moms family at our home in Lake City, Florida. TFL
This was a very small photo that I enlarged. I left some of the imperfections in the photo. This is a photo of me as a new born baby. My moms doctor would only let her gain 20- 25 pounds through the entire pregnancy. I was a 5 pound baby, what I see is how incrediably thin my mother is.
Some of the Collection is from The Scrap Muse December kit. The live tag is from a previous kit. Flowers can be punched out of stiff paper and covered with Stickles paint. Punch three flowers for each layer.
Paint each and then put a foam tab between each layer for added dimension. Dot sticles in appropriate areas and add jewels if you wish.
Photo is of my niece and her friend. The are cheerleaders for a team in Ohio. She is a great athlete,she plays Lacrosse weekly as well. Her gymnasitc skills earned her a position on the Varsity team even thought she should be on the Jr Varsity squad.
I am in the process of recording memories of which I have no photos. As a young child I rode the train to my grandmothers house. The train stopped in front of her house in Townsend, Ga and let us off the train. My grandmother walked out of her front door and over to the train track to meet us. My grandmother never drove a car.
