Today, there is a new sketch revealed at Stuck?! Sketches. Honestly, this one was great because it was for multiple photos, and I struggle with that. Head on over to Stuck?! Sketches and see what you think! Give this a try. I love playing with sketches. It removes the need for struggle, and just lets me play sometimes... and I love that! Sara puts up new sketches on the 1st and the 15th, so be sure to put it on your schedule, and play along for some fun prizes!!!! Who doesn't like some good scrappy goodness??? Here is my take on this sketch. This is, as you know, my beloved Puggle, Beauregard. It really is like having another child. This is one of the few layouts I've done with no journaling. Didn't need to say anything. It's just Beau on walks. LOL I used Cosmo Cricket, Tim Holtz, Mod citrus alphas, Scenic Route alphas, brads, Basic Grey, K & Co, and paint for this. Not to mention flowers and ribbon. Funny dog.

I've been creating. Here are a few of my latest treasures.
These are pics of a round wooden box that I made. I added them the other day, but had to fix the pics and so uploaded them again. I added starched material flowers to the top, along with doodads, crocheted lace, and a birdie.

September 11, 2009

What a day!

A day that will live in infamy, to borrow another phrase. It is a sad day. A day that changed the world. This event occured to my neighbours in the United States of America... but it occured to the world as well. When a friend's heart is broken...your heart aches; when a friend experiences loss and catastrophe, you experience the loss and pain with them; when a friend is attacked... you are attacked; when war is called on a friend, war is called on us all. Besides all of this, there was so much loss, that several countries were represented in the dead. We share in this day, a day that changed the world. A day that changed how we present ourselves, how we take care of ourselves, and how we protect ourselves. And it makes me angry that this is the world I have to pass on to my son.

On a Happier Note...

It's Friday! Which means tomorrow is the weekend. Which means I get to spend two days NOT working. sigh. Just the thought makes me happy all over. I plan on spending much of it scrapping and writing. And the weather, apparently, is going to be beautiful. yay.


I've been creating. These are a few layouts that I have been working on.
