The journey of creating begins with a spark from deep within. The artist continues on the loom of life and throughout time a beautiful tapestry takes shape and form from the luscious fibres, brilliant gems and precious pearls we encounter along the way....

Couldn't resist a December Layout!

The holidays went by so quickly!  I so enjoyed family times and good laughs.  Here is a picture of our precious Grandson who is growing by leaps and bounds.  He is just a joy to have around, he is funny and loving - so affectionate too, anyone who gets within his radar can't help but fall in love with him.  Here is a layout that showcases his mischievious side.  Mommy and Daddy says it took quite a few shots to get this impish liitle face smiling at the camera as he was so interested in  all the ornaments and trimming the tree!  Here you will notice my new House Mouse stamp with the sentiment; My Cup Runneth Over.  I couldn't help but use this on the layout as that is truly how I feel about my good fortune in life, wonderful family relationships, my good health and the same for my loved ones; what more can a person ask for?
I colored the stamp with Copic Markers (not happy with results this time) but I need to practice more - more - more... because when copics are coloring right for you, there is no other marker.  The trick is to get the right color combinations.  I do know that Deb is offering a fantastic preorder sale on Copic marker combinations right now.  Hurry on over to the store and check it out.  Just a quick post today... more coming very soon...  have a wonderful day!
