Another layout!


Another layout that I made using one of my kits. This was from the Rheanna kit. Here we are sitting around the table at my uncle's place in about 1973. That's me standing behind my parents and my little sister. I'm thankful for this family God gave me. We are all very close. I used Thanksgiving Stamps wordart from Jazzy's Words to Delight available at DSO to decorate my paper and the fall foliage came from Studio Lorie's Flitting Fall Faeries again.


That's something I will have to work on. Adding enough "stuff" to make good clusters. Maybe if I were better at MAKING clusters themselves, I'd be better at designing the elements to make them. Hmmmm.......will have to study up on this. Look over kits made by people I think do a good job of including lots of "stuff", like Carena's designs. She has a new kit out called Xmas Wonderland (sorry about the "X". I hate taking Christ out of Christmas.) She has tons of goodies in there for making clusters. And Studio Lorie ALWAYS has "stuff" for clusters......so many I can never use them all!


I'm working on a freebie kit for the HollyJolly Train. Check out the blinkie to the right for the departure date! Well, I guess that's all for today. I'll keep you updated on what I find in the "stuff" department.
