Grow





Yesterday I went and canned some food at the cannery for myself and some neighbors (service always feels SO good!) and then came home and spent the rest of the day creating. What a great day! Here are some of the fruits of my labors.

I just got this new stamp set called Treetops (C1368, $18.95 for 13 stamps) from Close To My Heart and couldn't wait to use it. I love these colors (Blush, Hollyhock, Sweet Leaf, Olive, Buttercup, Chocolate, White Daisy) with this set and I had lots of fun playing with buttons. It was also cathartic to put my 2009 goals into a layout to remind me. How can I not accomplish them now? All of my posterity will wonder if I did when they look at this layout. I cannot let the future generations down. tee hee.

Looking at this layout and these darling tree stamps remind me of a Primary song we used to sing when I was little (sing along if you'd like):

In the leafy treetops
The birds sing good morning.
"How do you do," they say.
"How do you do today?"
In the leafy treetops the birds sing good morning.

Now I need to go and create something with birds. Have a wonderful rest of the day. No one tell me who gets kicked off Idol until tomorrow. We have a basketball game tonight and I have to tape it and watch it at about 11 pm. Love ballgames....Hate missing Idol!

My prediction: Danny is going home.

Karen, Love the new pages! Now I am going to have to buy that stamp set because it is too cute.
I am sad to see Danny go. He was my favorite. I have to admit that Adam is not my favorite. I can see him on stage in Vegas performing, but not on the radio. I hope Kris wins.

Karen said...

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments! Kelli, I love Kris too. Even though Adam is my favorite, I will not be disappointed if Kris wins. They are both awesome.
