I love the paper package Sonoma, which has retired. I used every single piece of a number of paper packages for the invites and mom's album. Although I'm sad to see it go, I'm happy to see new paper packages arrive in the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book.
I carried over from the invite the Sonoma flowers which were second generation stamped with Smokey Plum ink and made a smaller quilt block than on the invite. Embellishments are from the Bohemian Assortment and the new Antiqued Gold mini medley along with some opaque adhesive gems from the brown assortment.
Did you notice the two pages so the flip flaps could be used? These are the 4 X 12 and 8 X 12 sizes.
This is What Matters Most - what truer words could ever be said. Family, friends and faith, all together to celebrate. This page shows the flip flaps open.
Okay - I must confess - - I did not make this page - nope not at all. I did purchase this layout at Convention 2011 Disneyland, California. The proceeds from my purchase went to Operation Smile a charity that CTMH supports. I love this layout and was waiting for the most special pictures to use.
Flip flaps open. This is such a fantastic way to get lots of photos on your pages. I used some of the Chocolate Velvet rub ons. They are wonderful to use.
Last page - I love the zip strips which are great for borders with an impact. I again used the Bohemian Assortment and Heirloom Assortment to add the cluster of embellishments.
I hope you enjoyed these pages as much as I enjoyed making them. I'm slowly catching up on some scrapbooking I have wanted to get at for a while. I'm excited to receive my order of new goodies and I am anxiously watching my Purolator tracking slip.
Dear Lord, I am 80 and there’s much I haven’t done. I hope dear Lord, you’ll let me live until I’m 81.
But, if I haven’t finished all I want to do, would you please let me stay awhile, until I’m 82?
So many places I want to go, so much I want to see, do you think you couild manage to make it 83?
Many things I may have done, but there’s so much let in store, I’d like it very much to live to 84.
And if by then I’m still alive, then I’d like to stay to 85.
The world is changing very fast, so I’d really like to stick around and see what happens to the world when I’m 86.
I know, dear Lord, it’s a lot to ask, and it will be nice in heaven, but I’d really like to stay around until I’m 87.
I know by then I won’t be fast, and sometimes I’ll be late, but it would be o-so-pleasant to be around at 88.
I will have seen so many things and had a wonderful time, so I’m sure that I’ll be willing to leave at 89.
