Time, once again, to link up with Elizabeth the Altered Book Lover and share for T.
This is the second page of my "Today "journal. I have eight nearly finished.... LOL #7 needs a little tuning up, and #8 needs something, but not sure what at the moment.
So moving onto Journal 52, this week the prompt is Rhyme Time.
This is not what this page started out to be.......but isn't that just the way it goes at times? If this had been my intentions as I started this page I wouldn't have glued down all those scraps of paper first, or at least left the center smooth to paint on......LOL All the color is acrylic paint, the leaves, along the edges are modeling paste (note to self: Need to get more made ASAP) The falling leaves with the rhyme are die cuts from TH Tattered leaves. I haven't drawn, or painted a Snoopy in y-e-a-r-s!! Always loved that little mutt!
This is what happens when I am watching "my" teams play football on Sunday, and neither of them are playing worth a hoot! I do believe the local high school could've beat both teams this week. :(
On a sadder note, I really should be making some sympathy cards. My DIL's grandfather passed early Saturday morning. They were Shafter people for years and are really well known here. Ray had had prostrate cancer years ago and it finally came back as bone cancer. It was a blessing that he did not have to suffer for a very long period, and the family all got to say their good byes. He will be so very missed at our family gatherings that is for sure. He always had a smile and loved those 4 great granddaughters to no end. So today the world is without a great cowboy and a wonderful husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather, and a friend to the rest of us.
Sympathy cards are the hardest things to make for me, and I am sure the rest of you feel the same. I usually try to make them when "NOT" needed, but came up dry this time. Completely out of stock. I had Megan, my 4 yr, old GD all day so Mom could help get things arranged for Thursday's service. When her daddy finally came and picked her up after work I was ready to come in and get those cards made. But have I?? not yet......................
Instead I made this:
Am I beating around the bush and putting off what I NEED to do? Yes I am! So it is time for me to stop blogging, and procrastinating and get busy. Tomorrow I will have flowers to order.
Don't forget to drop by The Altered Book Lover Blog and check out what we are all drinking this week....right now it is water for me.........
