Morning Has Broken

I remember my one of my first real High School Assemblies like it was yesterday (and it was a long, long, long time ago). It was Homecoming, the lights were turned down low, and they had recreated a magical scene complete with giant arches, a throne area, tissue paper/chicken wire grass, giant mushrooms, and a lighted gazebo.  Dry ice set a misty look to the ground when the Homecoming court and Queen came out, and they played one of my favorite songs of all time:  Morning has broken.  I get chill bumps just thinking about how pretty it looked and how I felt; I felt like anything was possible (hey, if you could turn our HS gym into a magical kingdom over night, then anything was possible).

At DRS Designs, our theme this week is "Cause A Scene" - create a scene on your card.  I created a morning has broken kind of scene  with some sponges, a sticky note, ink, and some great DRS Designs images.



I sponged on some old olive and crumb cake on the bottom and stamped Sea Grass about three times in both colors. I sponged my sky with soft sky and salty ocean (using a sticky note circle for my sun).  I used the Every Day A Miracle Greeting over my sun.

Every day does hold a miracle!!!!!  I believe this in every way but yesterday I believed it in every fiber as I witnessed my first baby have her first baby!  Yay!!!  Lewis Alexander Smith has arrived finally and everyone is doing wonderfully.  Here are a few pictures:



Isn't he sweet? Don't the parents look sweet too?  I am so proud of  my little girl, her sweet husband and this adorable little one. 

Hugz!!!!

  13. Wow, Wow, Wow is all I can say this card is fabulous. Congregations on the Splitcoast thing and on being a new grandmother, grand kids are the best. This morning my oldest grandson showed up for coffee and to talk about his first day of high school, moments I will always treasure. Love the card.
