    Sunrise at the Pond House

    Wow, that sunrise and your photo looks like a painting, it’s gorgeous! I like how you made your title into a sunrise and your cluster is so pretty. I like the textures on your page, too.
  2. My sister gave me my favorite Christmas Gift this year! Check out the intricate work and detail on these mice; the camera lens is a button and if you turn it around there’s an LCD viewfinder with a little mouse in it! Their creator, Monique Cagle is so talented; you can read her Mice stories on her “Sleepy Cat Studio” Facebook page. Journaling reads: “Christmas morning I investigated a noise at the front door and found a wrapped box bouncing around. I went to show Judi who said, “Well, you should look in your stocking." Apparently, we’d had the same idea in exchanging our gifts! It all started in Indiana in October when I was finally able to visit ”Sleepy Cat Studio". Monique Cagle is an enormously talented artist who creates in multiple media, including hand sewing the most adorably exquisite little mice, each with their own story. I bought Judi “Lynda”, a Hippie guitar-playing mouse complete with tote bag, fringed vest and headband. Judi commissioned a mouse for me saying I liked purple, taking photos, summertime heat and flip-flops. Christmas morning we unwrapped our mice together and I gasped in delight to find “MerryLyn” (Merry for short) looking up at me! She is dressed in purple and lavender shorts, tank top and hat, with the most amazing little flip-flops. Her camera and a tote bag with a slice of cheese sticking out, hangs from her neck. I was enthralled and immediately the mice became Sisters and toured the area. You can see some of the sights they saw while together!

    This is such a pretty page, Kelly and I like the delicate papers you used. I am looking through your photos and wondering about the explanation because I can’t read on my little laptop screen when my contacts are in! I’m going to take them out in a bit and then come back to read. I really like your cluster, it’s so pretty!

    PL 2019 Week 20

    Great photos and journaling, it’s amazing to see how your girls look so much younger then, not that long ago! I like the backgrounds and colors you chose and love that mermaid blanket, what a cool Dad! You’re doing an amazing job of finishing one year of PL and beginning another, but it will sure be worth it for your girls to have these memories documented.

    PL 2020 Week 2

    Great photos and journaling and I like the collection you used, it’s one of my favorite winter ones! I have to confess that this is some time away from the week you are scrapping and I have spent the day (still) trying to get my Christmas decorations INTO stacks and put away! 😱

    OOOOhhhhhh. This is beautiful Debby! Your photos are so pretty and you got a great shot of the butterfly. I never heard of a coral plant, it really does look like sea coral! I like how you arranged this page and the pieces behind the pics.

    JJ20_week 2

    Your photo is great and I like your photo treatment, too. Your background is so beautifully blended and I really like the soft patterns you blended so beautifully. There is so much to like on this page - the title, the stitching and the vine running down the page pulling it all together. This is a really beautiful page, Jane.
