For You

- "Where were you when that world stopped turning on that September Day...." ~ Lyrics from "Where Where You When the World Stopped Turning" by Alan Jackson I remember right where I was, what I was doing.. Stretch was only 1 year old, and I remember my heart going out to everyone.. but my heart hurt so much for those little children.. Today we REMEMBER those that lost their lives 10 years ago today.. We thank their families, friends, and those heroes.. we will never forget..

I had some "mommy time" while Liberty was sleeping.. and I really was so inspired by the Spark Challenge going on at Paper Smooches.. so I had to play.. You get to draw inspiration from the photo.. and I did.. Peach, Lime Green, Baby Blue, Circles, Dots, and a little bit of shine to "top" it off.. :) I really love how this turned out.. It looks more "calm" in real life.. the camera made it a tiny bit brighter than it is.. never the less.. :) I like the look...
The "non" traditional colors for Christmas... here is how I made it.. All Stamps are from Paper Smooches...
Santa Paws-Sentiment
Sugar Rush- Big (green) circle, and small circle, and the 3 little green tree trunk is the little circle candy.
Surf & Turf- 2 sets of bubbles
Hang ups (peach hearts)
I used Stickles for the top of the tree just to add a little something extra.. Thanks for looking! HUGS
Challenges-
The Paper Variety -Favorite embellishment (stickles/puffy paint)
The Rubber Cafe-No Patterned Paper

Those two layers looks totally excellent. I gifted same tag to my sister on her first trip of Jerusalem. Still now she saved it, as it is.
