Check out below for my photobucket pictures, click and it will bring them up. Neatest thing, when looking at pictures taken in Italy the other day, I came upon one of my own, my name was below it . Believe you are suppose to ask before doing that, but I was thrilled just seeing it.

Was finally able to get a link to my photos, but why is it not doing the slideshow? One day I will know these and many more answers, just hope I won't be dead by then. Have to get packed we leave this morning to fly into Milwaukee. Two of my daughters and their families landed in Chicago early afternoon. My daughter Judi and her husband Alessandro are on their flight from Italy. We get to see them tomorrow evening in Milw. Jeanne and Bobbi/families will arrive Friday to get ready for my sister=in=laws birthday party. My kids in Phoenix are unable to attend and will be sadly missed. When we send pictures over the internet they can include shots of themselves and it is almost like them being with us. Creative people. I will return next Wed. Have a great time while I am gone.

Pals Paper Arts. This was fun. I had a stencil made from a stamp, using the positive and negative, stippling with my inkpad. Stamping my small Rome stamp and tucking in a couple of old coins, black ribbon for a little drama. Simple and hopefully elegant.

This is my first challenge for Stamping 411. Lovely as a tree was used for the background. Congrats for the saying, and of course SU border and flower punches. It is almost impossible to see the dot cuttlebug that was used on the bottom and then stamped over. Wanted a little more black on the card, next time I will highlight the dots with an almost dry inkpad.
