In September our second grandchild will be born! We are so happy and anticipating this little one’s arrival! Congratulations Matt and Jenn! ¬†(Our first grandchild will be born in a few days. Our son and his wife are due. A grand baby girl.)

In March I visited my father in Seattle. It was so dear to see him and my family.  We love you daddy!

Finally, In the month of April, I am taking the Studio Calico class making an album “this is ME”. ¬†I initially did not want to take this class as I really don’t think this kind of album is necessary. ¬†My Project Life pretty much is all about me already! ūüėČ ¬†BUT, It is so fun to play with paper….I have so much ‘stuff’ to use up SO, I am enjoying this challenge. ¬†I had so much fun putting together my opening page.

You can enlarge it by clicking on it. ¬†I am waiting for a studio calico hand book as I thought that would be what I would use. ¬†Instead, I remembered this “lush” my minds eye album I had purchased a couple of years ago. I was keeping it to make a special mini book about Jim and I. WELL, this “design” idea came to me while trying to sleep. I loved the idea of beginning with “lists”, words, sentiments that could tell a lot quickly. ¬†I decided to use this mini book album for this project. I played with studio calico mists and mask, Martha¬†Stewart¬†embossing¬†powder, Studio calico wood pieces, Becky Higgins PL card from the olive set. lush gems, Studio calico ¬†class kit. etc. ¬†I had a lot of fun. ¬†Right now I am using glossy accents to coat these chipboard pages to protect as I hope to handle this mini. ¬†I will post again when I am done.

Much grace to all of us as we continue our daily life.  Enjoy Jesus!  He is everything. LUBM   Debbie
