A fun, creative w-end!
Friday it was a fabulous evening! $510 raised for Katie's SIL team that will be walking for the Cure. Read more soon on Katie's blog!
I had almost nothing with me except photos and paper....and did 3 - 60% completed layouts...! Let me explain. OK It's true I don't pack light usually and get practically nothing done, so this may be the new way to do it! Paper and pics... and then embellish at home!
Saturday was the Ultra Pampered Crop at the store. Katie and Louise were also part of the fun! We created, giggled with Kathy, Cindy and Liz... just had a blast! I had brought more embellishments as I new I was staying longer... (up to 2am) and completed 2 of the 3 layouts started the day before. 3 more needs to be embellished... and will do that during this week. I also finished my All about me #3 (will be officially posted in this week news letter from Jenn and will post it after).
Here are the completed layouts of this weekend!
I painted this watercolor painting "Looking Up to Old Glory" just days after 9/11/01. I felt scared, anxious for what would come next in our country. My husband was on an aircraft carrier in the Gulf and I had not spoken (really emailed) with him since the morning of 9/11, I watched the news 24 hours a day hoping to catch word of his ship and find out where he was. To this day when I look at this painting and think about our world then, I get so emotional I can't control my tears. On this day, I keep all the families that lost a loved one or dear friend close to my heart -- and will look to Old Glory for comfort. #neverforget
