Bind it book

Hi Everyone,
 Hope you have had a wonderful weekend. The weather here in Northeast Ohio has been awesome! Today I wanted to share my first project ,a book I am in the process of making ,using my bind it all machine. I am learning how to use my Distress inks and blending tool ,along with other new toys I got after my class with Tim Holtz ,at the Akron Stamping Convention. As usual they look so much better in real life.

I have used Graphics 45, Tim Holtz and Stampin Up's papers, Stampers Anonymous,Sweet Impressions and Stampin Up stamps, Distress inks, Tim Holts sizzix dies, unknown ribbon, Ideology fragments, miscellaneous embellishments, MS punch, and a free photo image from online. If you have any questions or comments concerning this project feel free to email me.
Well thats it for today.
My prayers and heartfelt gratitude are with all the men and women who are or have served our Country!!!
May God bless you and your families!!!!!!!

Death in the Family

Hello Everyone,
 Sorry I have not been posting anything lately. I have been dealing with a major flair up of my back problems again for several weeks, which is now starting to feel some better.  And about two months ago, my Mother in law was diagnosed terminally ill with less then 6 months to live. We have been busy visiting her alot and dealing with major issues there. This past Sunday she passed away peacefully in her sleep and went to be with our dear Lord. She was 94 years young. She loved the Lord and had a wonderful life. Her health started to really fail the past two years, but she was very blest, up until last year she actually lived alone and was very active. She sure loved life and people. So it may be abit yet before I am able to get back to crafting and post any cards, still lots to take care of. So until then, may God richly bless you all with good health and happiness.
