Now & Forever



I've been thinking, thinking, thinking about this adorable MUSE card from Michele this week.  I love black, red and white together.  I had some new dies arrive on Saturday from Frantic Stamper so I of course had to put them to use. You can see that I followed the color scheme and layout pretty closely from Michele's inspiration card below. Added a few gems and the sentiment and Pat's Valentine is ready to be written out and sealed :).

Hope you had a great weekend.  Ryan and Collin had the start of their show choir season on Saturday.     Hard to believe I have one just starting and one finishing.  I love, love, love this picture that my friend took off them from their holiday show.   It should be another exciting year.  Collin is my shy one, but he is loving it.  Proclaiming, "my second performance was so much better than  my first.  I know the moves."  He's adorable up there!  Here is is hamming it up with a couple of his friends before they performed.

  3. Fantastic use of controlled color. Your boys are so handsome Lynn. I started following you when your oldest was about to start high school (I think) it has been neat to "see" them grow.

  7. I love the bright and bold colors on your CAS card, Lynn. It's so much fun to watch the younger generation perform, isn't it? I get a thrill every time I see one of the grands doing something they love.
