some quick shares.... :):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....

Sooooooooo i was feeling a little better yesterday...not 100%....but well enough to make a couple of pages while chillin' in the designated "sick" chair in the living :):):):):):):):):) thanks for all of your well wishes....found out today....its NOT the flu....but i have an ear congestion condition thingy that is making me dizzy and giving me a yucky tummy....go fig that your ear has that much power!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):)

First...i wanted to share the lo i made for this weeks Scrapping the Music!!! :):):):):):):):) this weeks song is "beautiful dawn"....loveeeeeeeeeee this song!!!!! I chose the lyrics, "take me where the ocean meets the sky and the land." :):):):):):) I used a Kenner Road kit on this some yummy flowers and leaves from Tonia's ETSY shop! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)



Next I want to share some lo's i made just for fun!!! :):):):):):) First is......"Papa and his mini me" :):):):):):):):) This is my Father-in-law and his Halloween candy holder "Frankie" that looks JUST like him!! LOL! LOL! We call him mini me every year!!! LOL! I used Nikki Sivils' Boo-tiful line on this (besides the title which is AC thickers!) and i totally lifted my friend and fellow Nikki DT member Deana's genius idea of using the scalloped edges and made some ruffles!!! Of course....when i told Deana I was gonna be lifting her sure if she appreciated me texting her about it at 11:30 at!!  LOVEEEEEEEEE U DEANA!!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)





And the last one I called...."the pioneers of the 1970's?" hehehehehehehe....this is me and my brother back in 1970-something...and i thought the dress i was wearing looked TOTALLY Laura Ingalls-ish!!! LOL! I used the newest kit on this one! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)





Thanks again for all the get well soons.....truly appreciate it!!! LOVE TO ALL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):)


  1. Love your layouts... especially the STM one!!! I am glad to hear you are feeling better!

  2. Julie, I am so happy you are feeling better. Love your pages. So so so awesome. Love those ruffles...You and Deanna are rockin' with that creative idea. So cute. I gotta find the picture of me when I was little dressed as an "old" lady....That would be a cool layout to make around this crazy Halloween time. Hope you get back to 100% soon. Hugs.

  3. you may just find out how much of a freak i am one of these days!! lol :) :) :)
    i heart that you used my flowers and leaves on that STM l/ looks soo good,and i love the photo!!
    and i love all of your titles, as usual! super sweetie work!!

  4. These are just stunning LO's Julie...I'm glad you are feeling semi better....

    Now Missy......your dizziness and nausea...
    I suffer from this from time to time...if its the same...,
    its called labyrinthitis and its caused by a problem in the middle ear....doesnt mean you can feel pain in the middle ear. Mine gets blocked.
    Its the worst ever feeling and it probably needs treating.
    THe meds I take for this is Stemzine and Serc which one stops the dizziness and the world just swinging around me, and the other stops the nausea and vomiting which is like severe sea-sickness.
    So if it gets any worse...will you promise you will go to the docs!!
    Promise me!

  5. Got your message bloss...let me know how you get on, cos it prob wont get better by itself - just will make your happy heart miserable. And we just cant have that!


  6. I didn't realize you knew Dina. I love her style. So she is inspiring. I always so to her blog to recover from my perfectionist ways.

    I love your latest LO. The sun symbol is so cool and extra creative. I learn alot from you too. I got my first Nikki papers in the mail today.

  7. Loving all your pages!! You are truly versatile!!

  8. Stunning work! Love the colors you used. The title Papa and his mini me...ow it's to good!

  9. Who would think that your ear could do all of this!!! Hoping you are feeling 110% very soon!!!! Love all the LO's and the second one is just wayyyyyyy to cute!!!! Love them!!!! Wishing you a Terrific Tuesday!!!! :-)

  10. I'm glad you're feeling a little better, I hope you're 100% soon! I love your stitching on the first lo and the seventies one is a hoot!

  11. Better take good care Julie...the ears can do bad stuff!
    LOve your Layouts so colorful and so fun that mini me..;)Loving those ruffles!
    I love your Lo with you in the Laura Ingalls dress...gorgeous!And I love your title!Beautiful...And that STM LO is simply all of it!
    Like I said, really take care!

  12. That STM layout is devine - love it. Your other layouts rock too. Glad you know why you are sick - keep taking the medication and get better soon. xx

  13. Very happy to hear you're beginning to feel better! Yay! :-)

    I ♥ all the LO's... especially the rockin' scallops/ruffles! That photo is pretty funny, too! LOL! :-)

    One question on the last LO (btw... one year for Thanksgiving, my sister & I dressed up as Pilgrims. Must've been a cheesy 70's thing? LOL!) is that a patch on your eye or a glare on the photo? My youngest sister wore a patch on her eye for awhile when she was little (for Lazy Eye). It's still a problem for her, especially if she drinks. I don't really notice it, but I guess she does! :-)

    Love ya!

  14. Hi Laura, lol! Your layouts are GREAT again, I'm totally in love with the first one!!

  29. so glad to read that you are feeling better but be sure to get the eye thing checked out. Just love your layouts - the STM one is so beautiful and the others are so charming! Did you wear glasses as a child? I did - lazy eye but it got better so most of my adult life I have not had to have glasses - unfortuately the accounting caught up with me and now I need glasses to do close work. I hope you continue to improve. Have a great week!
