Froggy Love

Here is another card that I did with a frog on it this time. I put glitter glue on the roses and just a touch on the heart as I think it adds a touch of glamour. It is a simple card.

My Dad and Grandparents layoutsof their tombstone-My first mosiac

This is the first mosiac layout that I did and I wanted to do a layout of my dad's and my grandparents tombstones so I can remember what they look like as i do not live close to them to visit. I stamped the flowers and doublestamped them. The title is doubled stamped also. I cut 1 flower out and pop-dot it up just above the journaling to give it a lift.
(TIP:) If you are out of pop dots and something to give a lift you can use leftover rubberstamping rubber that you trim when you mount your stamps, well save it as the sticky back will give it a lift. just pull off the rubber part before you put it on like a pop-dot. this way you have sticky of both now, now use as you would like a pop-dot. I tried this and it worked. that is what I used for the flower. :)

I am back

after being in the hospital for an asthma attack that had me in there for almost a week. I had a rough night also. I could not breathe for the whole night. he whole night was in there I was in there they was giving me breathing machine alot. I was scared as I never felted that way before liked since I was a baby until I was 8 years old. thats when i grew out of it I thought. I guess not!! The dr. said an irritant caused it. so now i hope I don't have another attack because I will have to watch. Plus it messed up my migraines big time in there and the hopital didn't give me my migraine meds for the BIG pain like I should have had. So I received a blessing from the missionaries which I knew would work when I cannot get my meds as the blessings from God worked on my migraines before when my meds didn't. So i knew where to go. I will have to see where this asthma will take in this future now as I hope it is the only I have. I was scard and am not afraid to admit that. What started out as a simple sore throat and cough to me and went to an asthma attack was scary. Now to get on to more card making and scrapbooking as i took more pictures over christmas of my mom and family. I just need to get them printed. I have a lovely pics of my mom making cookies-12 dozen sour cream cut-out cookies. that will make a wonderful layout and I have some great papaer for that. I cannot wait to start that one. i have ideas for that one right away and will show you later. Plus i will be scraping my arm-band from the hopital also as I wanted to keep it. I think it would make a great first page since I was eight yrs old of my asthma attck.

I will post more later and see you later.
