Taking Time...


Textures I used were DREAM at 50% and OH MY at 50% both in soft light


Hello my lovely friends.
Well it's a brand new week.  I don't have a whole lot
planned this week.  I know I will be spending time going through
all my photos from my trip.  It really is crazy how many photos
one can collect.  On my San Francisco trip alone I too over
400 shots.  That's not counting the ones I too off my phone.

Not to mention I am quite a bit behind on my Art Classes with
Life Book.  So lets just say I have a lot to keep me busy this week.

So that is how I will be spending my time.
How about you?  Any fun plans this week?




It is Tuesday (already)
Which means it time for another challenge over at
City Crafters Challenge Blog.



The sweet and talented Kirsty is our host this week
and is asking us to put a photo on our project.



So I made a sweet and easy page for a mini album.
We will see if I get around to finishing it.



Not a whole lot of embellishments



Just enough to make it pretty.
Just in case you didn't know that is a photo of my
sweet daughter and her husband.



So if you would like all the details on this challenge you can
head on over to City Crafters Challenge Blog.


I am also linking up the first photos to
TEXTURE TUESDAY!

I am still trying to get caught up on visiting all
you lovely gals. If I haven't stopped by your blog yet I
will real soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by..
I do hope you have a happy week
and take some time to smell the roses..

Hugs, Linda

This is beautiful! Linda, you are truly an inspiration. It's one thing to be talented with photography, it's a whole other thing to be talented with crafts. You do a wonderful job with both. Is there anything you can't do? Please say, yes. It'll make me feel better. :)
