    Glorious Autumn

    This is just beautiful. The Autumn colors are perfect, the frame is very nice and all the apples make me want to bake an apple pie. Love the little bird and the flower cluster.
  5. Thanks for the 'Foil Overlays' Amanda. I'm so glad that you finished them and I can't wait to use them. You are a peach.

    Tama Zoo Mosaic

    This is incredible. That mosaic butterfly is just gorgeous. I love the background with all the squiggles, dots and shots of blue.

    Fall is in the air

    Beautiful layout. Love the pumpkins in front of the fence, the falling leaves. It all goes so well with the background paper. The framed photo reminds me of a painting that I had on my living room wall. Somehow it got lost when I moved.

  14. I don't know how much longer I'll be able to do layouts. My hands are giving me too much pain between the arthritis and my pointer finger locking on me. Not a happy camper these days. But I still visit the store and make purchases.

      I haven't been on for quite awhile and this may be totally off base but just in case. I had a finger that was locking up - they called it trigger finger.  I was told not much they could do and they didn't consider surgery till it was totally unmovable. I got a second opinion and a steroid injection at the base of that finger.  Within days it was moving freely again. I have not seen your previous posts so it may not be the same sort of thing at all … but just in case.  Wishing you the best.

      Hi Pat. That is exactly what I have, Trigger Finger. I had cortisone injections at the base of the middle finger first and it worked. Then I had it done to the index finger which is the one that always locks on me. The injection hurt real bad and it didn't help at all. I have arthritis really bad in that finger and that doesn't help. Then I had surgery on both fingers. The middle finger is fine but the index finger still locks and sometimes the pain is so bad that hot wet towels are the only thing that unlocks the finger. But, only for a while.

      Have you tried using your waco tablet yet? My fingers are so much better since I got mine many years ago. Can’t live without it now. I did have my trigger finger repaied, and have had no problems si ce then, not being able to creat sucks. Take care Carol.
