Faithful Love

Happy Valentine's Day!

I finished up my BAJ page on Psalm 25.  A lovely Psalm about dependance on the Lord, His strength, His compassion, His protection, and His love.  Perfect for Valentine's Day.

I started my page with a saved napkin from Tuesday night's Bunco.  I won little Bunco and had some of the best chocolate cake I have ever tasted.  My Sister is a wonderful cook, but she topped herself that night.  The hearts are so cute and I love using napkins on my BAJ pages - so easy and the look is awesome.  I then added a Dina Wakley decopage girl but I altered her to look a bit more like me (if I didn't dye my hair and had a few less wrinkles).  Stenciled on a few numbers and a corner, wrote out some words and it was done.

Showing this on **Art*Journal*Journey* hearts theme for Feb.

I also wanted to share my cute little Valentine's Day frog card that I shared on the DRS Designs blog yesterday.  The background is an inky mop up of distress oxides.  Added some stenciled letters and the Love You More greeting from DRS.  The star is the pink frog though.  I stamped the DRS Frog on a Log and colored her/him up with colored pencils.
The little flower and heart add to the Valentine's Theme.  This is going to my oldest daughter with her new weighted blanket I got her for Valentine's Day.  We have always said "I love you more" to each other so I know she will love this.

Hope your day is special and you get lots of candy and other treats.  We are celebrating big at work today - breakfast with fruit and breakfast burritos for Feb birthdays, pizza for lunch to celebrate a big accomplishment, and a giant candy and sweets table to celebrate Valentines. Just what a dieting girl needs!

Brotherhood Wishes, a Paper Purse, and a Special Mug

Hello friends. No more fun travel or parade pictures - back to every day normal life.  On a positive note, I have been able to fit in some art. Hereis an art journal spread I finished this weekend. I am adding it to Alison's Summer Landscape challenge theme at **Art*Journal*Journey* .   I started the pages in my journal around July 4th after seeing Dina's stripes inspired Mixed Media challenge on and got as far as stamping some foliage at the bottom.  I was stuck after that, and I wasn't sure where to go with it next.  A few days later, I was clearing out some things in the craft room and ran across a Thomas Kinkade book I cut up and use in my Bible Journaling.  There was a picture of  the San Francisco Bridge and another of some mountains so I tore them out and added them to my page with Gesso representing some of the beautiful things in America and also Alison's countryside theme.  They did not blend in very well and I needed to alter them to wo

My Favorite Parade

Hello Friends! Hope you had a good weekend.  I look forward to this weekend every year because I love the Fourth of July Parade in Prattville.  It makes me feel like things are right with the world - it is a bit old fashioned, a bit innocent, a bit quirky (actually a whole lot quirky), and a lot of fun.  Anyone can be in the parade as long as you remotely look patriotic.  My kids used to ride their bikes in the parade when they were younger. I thought I would share a few pictures. The mayor and City Council had one of the first floats (by the way all the floats and cars throw candy, necklaces, and toys so the people watching are all paying close attention so they can catch the good stuff). Notice how the floats are really just trailers with a few decorations. This was one of my favorites - it was the sanitation department and they had all their candy in a toilet on the top of the truck - lol!  I am pretty sure it was tootsie rolls - lol again! The local judge - isn't she pretty?  

Hot Air Balloons, Santa Fe, and Watermelon

Hello friends. Posting Day Three from our New Mexico Trip.   When  I was 26, I was on a hot air baloon team.  Our lead pilot back then was awesome and was asked to do a lot of commercial flights and invitationals. My favorite experience was at an invitational in Telluride, Colorado.  Flying down the middle of that city was amazing, but flying around Albuquerque was always wonderful as well.  Anyway, I wanted my daughter to experience the special feeling of being in a hot air balloon in Albuquerque (the balloon capital of the world).  Her son was a bit afraid so he stayed with me. Allie was lucky to have the owner of Rainbow Ryders as her pilot and she met a wonderful woman who is an established travel blogger (I will try to get her contact info and share it because she was very interesting and I bet her blog is interesting too).  They hit it off really well, and she was so encouraging to Allie who wants to get into Social Media Marketing.  For the travel blog video they got to go insid
