Hi everyone - my sister does inspire me with her blog "For the luv of Bling", which made me get back on mine. I did a new layout called "Cherished Time. " My granddaughters and are growing up so fast. As time races on so does the seasons. We all get a little older. I have been busy doing little projects and re-doing my scrapbook room. I will post some pictures a little later.
I got an email that a friend sent me, I took a quote from it, it goes like this. "Whenever posssible, life should be a pattern of experiences to savor, not to endure. I'm trying to recognize these moments now and Cherish them."
Time is our most cherished commondity in life, we need to savor it. God had blessed me with two beautiful granddaughters and I am savoring every moment.
This is the piece that gave my layout a name. I used Tim Holtz embellishments, it was perfect.
The pictures below show a close-up of the tag and quill pen. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink and stamps and tied a stiff feather through the tag. I hot-glued a feather quill to the pen nib.
I hoped you enjoyed the layout. I had fun making it. I love, love, love that Tim Holtz guy. He really captures the right pieces to use in a shabby kind of way.

Hi everyone. I know that I haven't been writing or posting pictures in my blog for quite a while, but I'm back now, thanks to my sister. She started her own blog and it inspired me to write and post some projects that I have worked on.
My most talented sister made some purse books last year. I loved them so much that I scraplifted the idea myself. You use a photobook that holds 4x6 photos. I will write a tutorial later on how to make them. But for now I want to show off the books that I have already made.
