God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world as it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right if I surrender to His Will; That I may be reasonably happy in this life and supremely happy with Him Forever in the next. Amen.
--Reinhold Niebuhr
"Friendship is the hardest thing in the world to explain. It's not something you learn in school. But, if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
---Muhammad Ali

"We are driven to create at this deep wordless level of the soul because we are all fashioned in the image of a God who is an Artist." - Michael Card, Scribbling in the Sand.

Back from Walt Disney World and started working on my Layouts.  Not to much done yet but have a few to share I'm not sticking with just one line but I will be using a lot of Simple Stories Say Cheese, Carta Belle Well traveled and October Afternoon Midway.  I'll have a few others thrown in including Bella Blvd Snapshot.

Here are the first ones done.  As you can see I'm using standard 12 x 12 and PL style pages.

Graphic 45 Steampunk and Spells Album

Graphic 45 Steampunk and Spells Album

I have used most of a 12 x 12 pad and an 8 x 8 pad of paper.  I have some left but not much I think I will probably use it up when I add the pictures.  I'm falling in love with the chipboard and stickers that Graphic 45 is coming out with.

I have feathers from Hobby Lobby and bling from recollection.  There is lots of embossing I'm loving the Hero Arts stamps that work with the collection and they are really cool with embossing.

I hope you enjoy the video.

I love long weekends I managed to get my house clean and to find time to play.  Just don't seem to be able to do that when I'm only getting 2 day weekends.

Tonight I pulled a photo of my Grandpuppy out to scrap.  He was less than 6 months old in this  picture and now is even bigger.  His name is Hank and He's my buddy.

The paper is Authentique from Flying Unicorn kit.  I added the trim and whasi tape but the rest came from the kit.
