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.

We took the grandchildren to the fair this year! We did visit the barns and saw all the animals but that will be on another page! The kids sure enjoyed riding the rides! We hope you enjoy the photos!

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.

The font I used for the quote is Lavenderia, Behold the Beauty is from Jana Morton’s Autumn Memories Collection word art.

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.
Good job Maggie! Thanks for looking!

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.
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.
The photo in the large layout where the geese are landing is the same place as the upper right photo in the new layout. Thanks for looking!
