Finally ... a layout

I've been working so much on cards, altering and vintage stuff, I felt like it had been ..forever, since I actually did a layout. I finally just sat down , with no specific products I had to use, no assignment due.. no theme to follow.. just paper and scissors... , and put together a layout. It was fun to just "do it"... a little stamping , a little stitching.. ahhh.. I feel better. hahah
I've had this photo of Nathaniel and I since last Easter, and have been really wanting to scrap it.. so finally... I did. He was sharing is music with me.

You can click to see it larger if you want.

I had a great mail day also! Two fun packages from dear friends. My blog friend Jane (harrahx2), sent me this amazing box of goodies.. for no reason , other than she is a sweetie! I was like a little kid on Christmas morning. All these fun things to look through... each it's own little treasure. It totally made my day!

Check out this Beautiful Bracelet. I LOVE it! Thankyou so much friend!

I don't know if you remember me telling you about the little jar of toys and tiny treasures my Aunt Pauline used to have for us to look through when we went to visit them on the farm..but I loved that jar! And every time we visited, I couldn't wait to see what little things she had added to the jar since our last visit. Well, since then her grand daughter Paula, (my cousin and friend) .. gave me a jar of my own... and started it off by added a few little treasures to the inside. I decided then, I was going to always have this jar at my house and add little goodies to it for the little ones who come to visit here to look. I hope it intrigues them , like Aunt Paulines goodie jar, intrigued me. Anyway... a few of the fun little goodies Jane sent me are now added to "the jar".

*I cant wait to have Griff out .. I think he will like the "the jar". lol

As if that wasn't good enough.. I got this totally sweet note and ATC from Cat today. I MISS YA KITTY! I have quite a collection of her art now.. and it hangs in my studio.. so I can enjoy it everyday!

I am SO thankful for the dear friends I have been blessed with! I'm a lucky lucky girl!


Speaking of friends.. I'm heading off for my photography class at Becky's new loft today. It's an "all day" sorta thing.. and I'm so excited to learn more about how to take better photos. It's going to be so much more fun than reading that boring old manual. lol ( which.. by the way.. I still have never done.) eeeekkk.

Later gators! Enjoy your weekend!
