Taught my class this am at the scrapbook store , the 1 hour $5 class. It was with a great group of ladies, the page was with the new Cosmo Cricket papers. Needless to say I have to scale back the embellishment for this class. Stayed a little late to help the ones that wanted more pick out goodies for their pages.
Met my mom for lunch and came home and went to bed.
Had to take the photo inside tonight, I just did not care about getting up to take a photo out side today. Black and white photo is a little off, but did not use the flash ( too much glare on the photo). I will retake it later, but deadline for submission is about 1 hour form now.
What do you think.............I think I may have gone just a little overboard with the color. Most of the other designers started with white or light backgrounds, but hey Red is a neutral color isn't it???
The swirl is the new K and Co paper, but I had to change the pink to red, love the red dimensional paint. It also comes in silver, white, yellow gold and pink. the swirl had red, yellow gold and white. I also used the new pastel writers that are like tinted white out. The page has white and yellow. Will have to get the name for you if you are interested, they are fun to work with.
In case you haven't noticed I love black and white ( or cream) with almost every color. Ithink most of my pages have black in them.

My son had a vintage 66 Chev that was parked at my brothers house. tHE 4TH OF jULY weekend we were over and all of the kids piles on , in and on top of his old truck. I was able to get some great photos of all of my nieces and nephews. I think most of the images from that day rate as some of my favorite photos ever. This is one of them. It does not hurt that I think the children are just wonderful.
This is Walker and Casey.
Casey holding Tillman
When I went over to take photos of Tillman the new baby, Casey took over the care of him. She watched over him with a very careful eye. It was so very sweet to see how gentle and careful she was with him. Walker then decided that he wanted to be photographed holding him. Of course she has already had one baby brother.
This layout was completed using paper from the Bad Girls monthly kit. The mesh in the back ground was the only think not in the April kit.

Chris is my oldest son and had long hair for many years. I was at work one night and he and Meghan came to see me. When he walked up he had a sweat shirt with the hood pulled up over his head. He and Meg stood there and talked to me for just a second and then she reached up and pulled the hood of his head. What a shock he had cut off all of his hair . One extreme to the other. TFL

The customer loved it, and it should be in full bloom in a week or two. Next week we are putting in a huge garden in her front yard, we are meeting on Saturday to discuss her vision. Fortunately, for me I do not maintain the garden once they are in , I only create them and install.

Meghan was and intern in DC for the spring of 2004. While she was there she roomed in a 3 story house just down from the capitol, with about 8 other girls. Her room literally was abou the size of a closet ( in fact i think it was a closet). This page is mostly fabric lace, some paper and a flower .
