Stormy Night, time for journal page

Yes - a LOUD stormy night, felt like the roof was going to cave in there around 3:30 am.  The basement smells "damp" - not good - have fans down there now - but it is still raining at 7:45 am...ugh!

Good news - Kyle won his high school tennis match yesterday as did the entire team! : )

Sharing a RED collage I did for a journal I sent out - it was hard to let go, wanted to keep it in my own journal - but deadlines for swaps being what they are, had to part with it. 

on a background of red tissue paper, then a variety of cut out magazine images

Hope your day is drier and brighter than mine looks to be!

another wet day, with a little sunshine thrown in

Yes, more rain, but not quite as much as the past week has delivered and I've seen a few peeks from the sun.  Hopefully Kyle will get to have his tennis match after school and Kerri will finally get to have her first baseball game of the season - 5 rain outs in a row!! sheesshh!!

I've been playing with ZENTANGLES lately, it can be very addicting.  I find myself doing it while running through sites online or while I'm not so engrossed in a tv show.  Have sent out a few envies that I completely zentangled and have added quite a few zentangle pages to various journals I've done.  Here's a look at a recent envelope I sent out:
If you've never heard of or seen Zentangles before, just Google it, there are some really incredible ones out there!!  Have a good Tuesday.

I'M BACK...2 years and 3 months later that is...

Hard to believe I have been away from this blog for that long.  Things have changed around here, kids growing up so fast.  My oldest son Michael is now married and he is also in the army and deployed to Iraq for a year.  He has a 21 day leave coming up, so can't wait to see him on May 9th!

I am hoping to post a page a day from either my scrapbooking or journaling.  I am starting off with the newest page I did of my oldest daughter, Morgan.  I layered the clock paper over the butterfly paper then heavily embellished with more butterflies (LOVE them!), lots of flowers I put together as well as som "paper rosettes" I created, then thrwe in some pretty pearls and a little bling and threaded some lovely shimmery ribbon bows through it all.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter yesterday and looking forward to a good - drier - week ahead!

Good night!
