In Memory of the victims of 9-11

to me the waterfall fountains symbolize the many tears shed on this day, the park of green trees that life will go on, and the underground museum so we will never forget the ones that die that day ........

STAMPtember with Tim

I was doing a little playing and decided to work with Tim's stuff on STAMPtember ... it's been fun and I like doing some of this stuff just most of the time I want to "get her done" so I don't take the time to go thru all these steps ...... go on over and watch his video then have fun ..... the metallic doesn't shine like it does in real life but you can see it there it just look white ...

"Olde Curiosity Shoppe" journal

This is what I have been working on for several weeks, not that it's that complicated to make just that life kept happening and wouldn't let me work as often as I wanted to .... I will use this as a photo/journal of some future event, therefore so many blank spots and mats/tags to add things to .... I enjoyed using the G45 metal butterflies by embossing them and using the Vintaj Patina system to color and age them ... of course Tim Holtz dies makes it easy to cut interesting things on the edges of pockets to add lots of visual interest ....  if you like the construction of this book you can easily make one just follow this link to my online classes for full instructions ... http://lindamanningfindley.blogspot.com/2015/06/i-have-had-request.html  .... hope you enjoy

I know for sure I am going to have to get busy making burp clothes and such ... we are so excited 2 little blessing at one time, just wish they were going to be closer to us but totally understand their parents have to be where the work is ... after all my DH and I took our kids half way around the world when they were little because that is where the work was .... this is their close up ... ;-)
