My Boy's- Li';l Monsters/ Websters and Sasafrass Lass Paper Lines

I love both of these paper lines and they are a stark contrast in styles, so I am not quite sure how I ended up combining the two. Usually it boils down to the papers are on my counter and my mind is on a wild tangent at 3 am in the morning.

My sons are now much older they were 18 months a part and quite a challenge at this age. The oldest was very independent and loved to explore, take things apart and figure out how they worked. The youngest was in to climbing, bicycle riding, physical activity.

I have always been in to photography and when I was younger I took photography classes in Winter Park, Florida. I was able to get free photography classes and unlimited use of the photo lab. The deal was I went in twice weekly to mixed the photo chemicals for the labs. It was a great deal and I gain great experience . On top of that I wonderful photos of my children. This is one of the photos I took. My sons are now 30 years old. Neither are married and their are no grand children, one is still in school. The were both home for Thanksgiving! My daughter was in Alabama with her husbands family!!

I am up at this hour waiting to buy a Black Friday deal on line that is supposed to be available at 3am. So far it has not happened...... May have to hit the store at 4 am for my daughter it if it does not work by then. Not sure it is worth it but it is only one item, so I will give it a shot.

Have a great week end!

So far all of my holiday shopping has been on line and the deals have been great. Coupons galore out there!!!

Look at My New Dress- Graphic 45 paper

Papers on both of these pages are from Graphic 45 collections. I also mixed Luminarte Pigment paints in to misters to create the back grounds.

I would love t have some of the new paints on the market, but I have a big colletion of Luminarte paints so for now I use them. They have a beautiful range of colors.

I shave been looking at getting some of the new Shimmers paints!! The colors are amazing and they blend well. i like that they can be used on any surface.

This is a photo of my mother in laws two sister, they look like they are saying look at my new dress. I think this is the cutest picture. They lived in Missouri and the family is of German decent. The page is for a Graphic 45 challenge.

This photo is of my daughter and her then fiance Allen while they were in Orlando for engagement photos.

Busy week ahead at work.
Hope I get some time to play Meghan, Allen and I are going to do a photo shoot this week end for holiday cards.

Last post that was supposed to be a saved draft...

They are back will be posted later.
Off to work I go!!

Second Hand Lions

Watched this movie with my husband last night ... Or should I say I watched the entire movie and he watched part of it. There was football on tv to bewatched.

It was a great movie probably a little slow for my husband.

Loved this quote by Robert Duvall from the movie.
He had advice for the teen age boys.

“Sometimes the things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. That people are basically good; that honor, courage, and virtue mean everything; that power and money, money and power mean nothing; that good always triumphs over evil; and I want you to remember this, that love... true love never dies. You remember that, boy. You remember that. Doesn't matter if it's true or not. You see, a man should believe in those things, because those are the things worth believing in.”

Graphic 45 Christmas - Baby Eddie

This a baby photo of my husbands father with his mother. I noticed the wreath in the back of the truck and felt it would be perfect to use with the new Graphic 45 papers.

I spritzed the paper with Luminart paints and rolled the edges.
