All of my love!!!

This is a Led Zeppelin song that talks about loves and lost in your life .... great tune!!!
Here is a link to the music:

Here is a link to the lyrics:

This song is all about love and how it effects you in life and how you carry on with your life....we release balloons up to heaven to my son that died and he would have been 10years old this last year ...he is missed!!!
But you go on with life and it makes you grateful for everything you have in life!!! 
I used a line from the song for the title of this page...To chase a feather in the wind...

Using Roller Stamps

I had a fun time looking for a different technique to use with my roller stamps from Glitz designs can find them right HERE

So ...what I ended up doing was putting a "blob" (the technical name) of Gesso in the middle of the page and then moved it around with the roller stamp and then when it dried I "swipped" (another technical name) across it with red ink to make it go with my picture ...then I added so many fun goodies from the Studio Calico Collection " Print Shop"  so fun is a link to that collection ....printshop

Thanks for looking at my project!!!

Being Grateful.....

This is usually the time of year when we are “Grateful” for everything in our lives  …the people that mean the most… you look at the things around you and see what means the most!!! The definition of grateful is …. feeling or showing an appreciation of kindness; thankful. So I have decided to make some project life cards with my leftovers and take them with me when we visit our families for the Thanksgiving holiday and have them write on the cards what some of my family members are grateful for …..

All of the cards have their names on them and I used lots of fun products in the store …go check them out right here….
And here is a close-up of some of my cards:
And here is another page that I made using these fun feathers them!!!

And here is a close-up of those fun flowers:
