I was blog surfing the other day and found a challenge. A Pay It Forward challenge. All you have to do is be one of the first five to comment on the post and you receive something from the blogger. I did and I was chosen, I am so excited! Now it is my turn to "Pay it forward".
Remember, you have to do the same on your blog.
So here it is: Be one of the first five to comment on this post and receive a handmade something from me. If chosen you have to do the same on your blog. Pay it forward!!
I found this challenge on the following link: http://mereslair.blogspot.com/ I don't know how to do those fancy links but, be sure to check out Mere's Lair blog.
I will email you or leave a post on your blog and let you know if you are the one chosen to "pay it forward", you send me your address and I put a handcrafted item in the mail to you. Then you put a challenge on your blog and be thinking of what you want to send to your lucky "commenter". Is that a word? That's what we have spell check for, right? I guess it is a word, I didn't get a yellow box.
I think I will go make something special right now.
My daughter came over yesterday so we could go through her wedding photos. We are going to start work on her album. We chose 168 photos and she chose some of the papers she wants to use. Now I need to have the photos printed and get to work. I am glad the Close To My Heart Summer Idea Book comes out soon. Hopefully there will lots more papers to use for her album. It will go live May 1.
Have a blessed day and thanks for tuning in.

Maybe both of my girls would like to have them or not.
I have completed the layout, but I think it needs more. I just don't know what. If anyone sees what it is missing, please leave a comment.
I used the new paper packet from CTMH called That's Amore. The flowers are from Fair Blossoms. Again I used pearls all over the place.
I have a few more places I want to upload the photo so I will say good night.
Thanks for tuning in.

My grandmother was a sweetheart. She had two children, Robert and Elizabeth. My dad was never Robert unless he was in trouble. My aunt is Ibby to us girls, Betty to her husband and friends. Grandmommy was 4 foot 11 inches tall and Granddaddy was 6 foot 7 inches tall. Of my 5 sisters and me only one of us is over 5'2". My little sister, Lisa, is 5'6". My grandfather grew up in Kansas where his dad was the governor. He loved cars and had two Lincoln Mercury dealerships in Maryland when I was a little girl. One in Rockville and one in Silver Springs. I remember going to visit at their house when I was a little girl. My grandmother loved the color kelly green. Her sofa was kelly green and she used a green fountain pen when she wrote letters. She kept a bowl of butterscotch candies on her coffee table.
I hope you like my layout. If so you could leave a comment letting me know. Thanks for tuning in.
I have to go into the offices this morning. I sure wish I had a regular job and not have to spend a couple hours at this office and a couple hours at that office. It's nice that I am at least making a little money, but I like having a 9-5 so to speak.
Thanks for tuning in. Check back later.

It's funny though, I am not Irish. I really am fond of all things Irish, like my husband, my children (part Irish-anyway), my husband's family. Believe it or not, I am even fond of my childhood memories of going to Catholic school with nuns right off the boat from Ireland. They spoke Gaelic to each other. I remember they even taught us some Gaelic words. These nuns were what a priest friend of mine said are "Real Nuns". You know the nuns that still wear full habits. I grew up in south Florida and back in the 60s when AC was not common the sisters wore full length habits. In the spring they would wear all white and in the fall and winter they switched to black. Many of our priests were Irish also. I won't tell you about our pastor as you probably read or heard about him in the news a few years back.
Lots of book work to do today. Just had to pop in and share my joy at finding these free backgrounds for blogs.
Thanks for tuning in. Oh yeah, if I do any more editing on the card I made yesterday I may post another photo. Check back.
