poem about thunder

A child's view of thunderstorms...I loved it!
cid:97D3A2D032064684AADB2FD8293BFBD0@emachine
A little girl walked to and from school daily.

Though the weather that morning was questionable and clouds were forming,
she made her daily trek to school.


As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up, along with lightning.

The mother of the little girl felt concerned that her daughter

would be frightened as she walked home from school.
She also feared the electrical storm might harm her child.
Full of concern, the mother got into her car
and quickly drove along the route to her child's school.
As she did, she saw her little girl walking along.
At each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look up, and smile.
More lighting followed quickly and with each,
the little girl would look at the streak of light and smile.
When the mother drew up beside the child,
she lowered the window and called, "What are you doing?"
The child answered, "I am trying to look pretty
because God keeps taking my picture."
May God bless you today & every day
as you face the storms that come your way!
"Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead."
—Louisa May Alcott

Poem from Elenor

Hello Pumpkin
cid:image001.gif@01CD9BD2.B5739220
From one pumpkin to another!!!!!!!

A woman was asked by a coworker,
'What is it like to be a Christian?'

She replied, 'It is like being a pumpkin.'
God picks you from the patch, brings you in,
and washes all the dirt off of you.
Then He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, and greed..
Then He carves you a new smiling face and
puts His light inside of you to shine for all the world to see.'

This was passed on to me by another pumpkin.
Now it's your turn to pass it to other pumpkins.

I liked this enough to send it to all the pumpkins in my patch.

scrapbooking weekends are just stamping , cards and fun with Berry Trifle

Sherrill is testing out the dessert she made.
Berry Triffle
Use 1 1/2 angel food cake use large pieces put half
in the bottom put a vanilla pudding over it (try not to let it set)
Use 1 pkg of dream whip
then layer blueberries, raspberries and strawberries
then layer cake, pudding and dreamwhip again.
Then finish off with all the berries again.
Not only is it pretty but very good.... so the gals say 

When you leave home hubby is always on your mind
so use the banana phone and call home......

Scrapbooking weekend with Sherrill Graff

Carolyn Garland, Sherrill Graff and Stampin Up Products

Sherrill has been in Canada with George and I
for 5 days now and has been sharing some fun stamping ideas.
All the girls are so happy when Sherrill comes here
They learn so many many new things.

One of the first ideas she shared this time around was
How to make hand painted papers using stampin up ink refills and
whisper white cardstock.

She calls the technique Hand Painted Papers


The paper can be torn while it is still wet to give you a ruff edge

When the paper is wet you can tear it and roll it into flowers.


You can stamp images onto the wet paper so the ink absorbs into it like she did with these leaves.


We used sponge daubers to apply the inks so that the colors would be closer
together since we were working with such small papers.





Friday night Carolyn and her stamping gals had a shoe box swap


Sherrill's Swap card


Carolyn's swap card

The girls covered a large paper clip Carolyn gave them.


Then Sherrill taught how to make multi colored ink pads
using stampin up supplies.


This is a multi colored pad made out of an old so saffron ink pad.
so saffron, pumpkin pie and soft suede ink was used.


This image was stamped in a multi color versa mark pad
(Sherrill is teaching this class again in Virginia at the end of the month for Barbara's friends)
