My Grandson

When I saw this photo I knew, when I found this poem I knew!  They were meant to be together!























The poem reads:
Let me tell you about my grandson.
'Do you have all day'?
For once I get started,
there's so much I have to say!
If asked to describe him,
well, it's very easy to do.
For he's the kind of boy,
that endears himself to you!
He's warm, gentle and verykind,
with a wonderful wit and a verykeen mind!
A heart that's made out of gold,
always polite and never bold.
He can charm the birds right out ofthe trees
and possesses so many,fine qualities!
To sum it up, I'd have to say,
he's a wonderful boy in every way!

The poem is by Audrey Heller and I altered it slightly.

The page is about a quiet serene place on property we own in SE Ohio.  I loved the way the light was peeking through the leaves and branches of the trees.  My favorite part of the page is where I took two of the trees in the photo and transferred them to Black & White and then used the smudge stick filter and reduced the opacity to get the look of added texture to the page. It also added to and worked with the colors Anna had used in her kit.  My favorite items in the kit were the transfers and brushes. I enjoy using those items to add to the back ground papers  where I want them put.  This page was also done for this month’s Digital U at Creative Passions.  Anna Aspnes was the guest.  Digital U is a free class at Creative Passions Classes and  is done once a month at no charge.  Layouts and techniques are discussed and there  is a chat line where all participants get to chat with the speakers and one another.

Myrtle Beach S.C.

When my 10 year old grand-daughter came home from vacation she let me know that she wanted to make a multi-media memory board like I did three years ago.  I helped her with supplying the know how, and products but she did her own design, painting, choosing the elements and photos and how the title work. I am so proud of her and all the work she did on this project. We have been working on the days she is here for the past week.

The Best Day Ever

is what Maggie was thinking last Wednesday She had mentioned numerous times how she would like to go horseback riding. So for her birthday I gave her a coupon that I would take her horseback riding. We had to wait for the weather to clear and the day finally got here. A friend of ours works at a stable and has horses of her own so she took care of Maggie. That is mainly what the journaling says.

The Best Day Ever
She got to get on two horses as there was another person booked for the first one.  Thanks for looking!
Papers were by MME, Sketch by Doris Sanders and Super sketches. I made the flowers from felt.

Beaver Marsh at the Cuyahoga Valley National Park

I have done Spring layouts of the marsh before where all you see is cattails and water. We walked there Thursday and we saw lily pads, and herons . We  saw a muskrat also but he got under the water before I could catch his photo.

I thought I would have some fun and post the other layout I did of the Beaver Marsh.
