Sharing some of my recent layouts...i finished these last week. Some of the color in the last one is way off....oh well. Found some great new product at my lss- scrap chic boutique. Such a wonderful little shop with beautiful displays & I love their grand chandelier!
Was totally blessed today with a visit from my dear friend Katie. She has been such a wonderful mentor to me the last several years. She will be 60 in a few weeks but is truly the most young at heart woman i have ever known. She truly loves the Lord, her hubby, her daughter ,her new grandbaby, and her "heart friends"--and what a treasure that is! I hope to be more like her when I grow up! Women mentoring women.....such a blessing God gives us. I love to learn from ladies who have "already been down the road" and have much wisdom to give. Not that everything in their life is perfect~ as that's what makes them even more real.
"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real." "Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit. "Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt." "Does it happen all at once, like being wound up," he asked, "or bit by bit?" "It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand."
