Checking In & Layout Share

Hi everyone. Thought I would check in and let you know what I'm up to! LOL I'm starting work on a Victorian Mother's Day kit. It won't be as huge as the other holidays, but I think it's coming together pretty good! If I do say so myself (humbly, of course!!!)!! I've been creating layouts using Fishinmom's kits since I'm now on her Creative Team. Her latest kit in the store is "Lilac Papillon." It's so pretty and versatile. Here's a layout I made from it for Patti from my Creative Team. It's her and her Aunt Bessie. I just love the picture of Bessie laughing. I can almost hear her!!

Fishinmom also has a cool freebie kit on her blog right now called "I Wanna Be a Cowboy." Go fetch it!! LOL

It's a beautiful day here in NE Ohio today. Cool (54 degrees right now) but bright sun...good for the spirits.

Guess what?? My sister, Darlene, bought me a Webkinz for my birthday (it's Friday). Now, mind you, I'm going to be 56 years old, but I am thrilled with it!! ROFLMBO!!!! It's a really cute and soft Cocker Spaniel. I named her La-La after a Swahili nursery rhyme I learned when I was in a choir in Chicago. I went to the site and felt like a little kid again playing with the online version of La-La!! Oh my, I do believe I am regressing into childhood again!!!

Well, I'm going to let you go and get back to working on the Mother's Day kit. BTW, I'm also working on a running/jogging kit so Patti can scrap her husband's (David, who is also my friend) memorabilia from his runs. He finished a half-marathon not too long ago. I am in awe!!!! Of course, it will be here on my blog!

Blessings to you and yours, as always,

It's okay to regress into childhood and fill it with the things you never had as a child. It's fun! When God created us in our mothers wombs, he intended for us to have a full and happy life but life doesn't always happen the way he would have liked it to, so He gives us opportunities through life like these times to fill in for the bad or hard times that we did have. When I bought my mother holiday gifts I bought things I knew she never had as a little girl. One time I bought her a teddy bear dressed in a beautiful dress and she still had it the day she died! Enjoy and have lots of fun with LaLa!
