My two youngest Granddaughters -
Pyper and Brynn -
Journaling reads:
Pyper I bought this little outfit for Brynnie and when you came to visit Grandma in Utah you saw the same bigger girl outfit in the store and wanted it so bad. It took months before Brynnie was big enough to wear hers and then we had to wait for the summer sunshine to come before either of you could wear them. Oh what fun for me to have the two of you pose for me and show off how good you looked dressed alike. Grandma Patti August 2010

Miracle Mountain

Supplies from Cottage Arts.
Page reads:
Mt St Helens a miracle we witnessed firsthand
as the earth shook and the mountain changed form before our very eyes.
We watched as the ash plumes rose and and drifted above us,
making we mere humans don masks and watch from inside our homes
as ash turned the noon sky to the darkness of night.
It was a time of Mother Nature’s power.
Awe inspiring moments of destruction,
death and fear,
and yet so very very amazing.

It was a time for the realization
that we are but mere mortals
on this Earth
and greater powers than we
control the elements.

The top two photos were
taken by my brother as
he flew above the Mt
just before the major
eruptions took place.
The bottom photo was
taken by family
visiting from
California in the
mid 1950’s.

A beautiful
majestic peak
before and
during her

Keeper of My Destiny

This was done for the Team Challenge - Exploring Emotions at Cottage Arts.  I'm using a brand new product just released in the store today called Creative Text Paths 2  over my picture I've used one of the blends from the Natures Sketchbook Photo Art Blends

The path reads:
In the quiet of the morning dew I can reflect upon what this day will bring.  Will it bring sunshine to my heart, peace to my soul.  Will I look upon all that is offered to me and embrace it will open arms?  I am the keeper of my destiny I must hold fast and believe.

Flower Child

Brynn is just growing up so fast.  They sent this picture of her in her Daddy's chair and I just had to play with it.  I used a digital kit from Cottage Arts called Sweet Posies, and it is that isn't it?

The verse I used reads:
 Babies are Angels that fly to the earth,
Their wings disappear at the time of their birth
One look in their eyes and we're never the same
They're part of us now and that part has a name
That part is your heart and a bond that won't sever
Our Babies are Angels, we love them forever.
