Just a little something from the latest batch of pictures from our Ava Weekend. She loves to take walks, more specifically she loves to walk though the campus grounds where the water fountains run. I think she would sit there all day if we let her! And if we're really lucky, we'll have a penny with us to toss in to make a wish! :-)
Nothing fancy used in this LO. I cheated and used a sample page from Storybook Creator. Though I did change the background paper color from greenish to blues to better reflect the water. :-) I thought it all looked rather fall-ish...
My altered Hallowen Cabinet Cards for the Diva Halloween Swap. The original cards were scanned and copied, then embellished digitally with the corner frames. The background was made to resemble the old-time card backings, complete with photog's "company" name. :-) What doesn't show in the scan very well is the crystalized dabs of paint to highlight the "frames," and I blurred out my name and addy in the right-hand corner. The bats, cat, ghost, and pumpkins are foam pieces found at Dollar Tree. Colored staples anchor the corners.

"Use the everyday reality around you as fuel for the inner world of your imagination and you'll find yourself a general inspiration to all. When hope and belief are applied hands-on to the real world, the inner self can make its mark on the outer and the stuff of dreams coming true becomes your instrument to play. Manifest what you believe and watch what happens!" ~ This was actually my Horoscope for July 13th, 2008, but thought it rather profound, and I'm a big fan of profundity so thought I'd post it in my Quotes! :-)
