One of our friends owns a garage and scrapyard. Raquel and I went for a walk around the rows of cars, when we were there for a visit last summer. Raquel looked so beautiful with her bouquet of wild flowers.

I used Blushbutter's newest kit, Gentle. It is such a gorgeous kit and has so many beautiful elements in it. I just love the colors and of course the beautiful fairies.

Winter Blues

It sure felt like spring the last couple of days, but we all know there is a few more months of winter left. The snow is beautiful, even if we are beginning to long for flowers and butterflies.
One day near the end of November, last year, we all went out to enjoy the 2nd snowfall of the year. The picture below, is one of my favorites, of my girls. Both girls love being outdoors a lot. Blushbutter's, Snow Flakes Winter Kit, went with my pictures so well, I just had to do these pages with it. Hope you have a nice week.

Bath Fun

Last year, my parents brought my two nieces down for the long weekend in February. The girls had a wonderful time, playing together for a few days. On the Saturday, they decided it would be fun to have a bath all together. We filled up the big tub with bubbles and all the girls jumped in for a swim.
I've been looking for a a mermaid kit for some time to scrap these pictures with. I finally found the perfect kit, thanks Doro, at Catzia's Scrapblog.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. It supposed to be a nice day here today with temperatures around 10 C. Such a nice way to start the weekend.

My Valentine

Well, we seem to be in between Chinooks. Another chilly day, but it is supposed to warm up starting tomorrow again. Have some things to take care of in the city, so that will be alright. It seems every time we have appointments to go o, the weather is bad, so this will be a nice change.

February's challenge at Blush-n-Dusty Yahoo Group is to create a page using something or someone you love. I decided to use my favorite picture of Vern. These pictures were taken a few years ago.
The Song is : God Bless the Broken Road written by Marchs Hummon, Bobby Boyd and Jeff Hanna. Performed on the 2004 release by Rascal Flatts "Feels Like Today".
"Bless The Broken Road"

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
Couldn't see how every sign pointed straight to you

Every long lost dream led me to where you are
Others who broke my heart they were like Northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

I think about the years I spent just passing through
I'd like to have the time I lost and give it back to you
But you just smile and take my hand
You've been there you understand
It's all part of a grander plan that is coming true

Now I'm just rolling home
Into my lover's arms
This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you

That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you.

The Gift of Oneself

The weather has improved finally, today it was 0 C, which was a nice change. Everyone is starting to feel better, which is wonderful as well. I found an interesting site the other day about chemicals on fruits and vegetables. It lets you know which fruits & vegetables have the most pesticides. I know a lot of us mom & grandmas are concerned with what our little ones eat. If you like, you can check it out at Food News.

Doxie Designs has out a lovely new kit, it has so many elements in it that remind me of my Grandma Kay. Grandma Kay, was my Grandpa Mike's second wife, and she was a very wonderful, caring lady. She was the only Grandma I ever really knew, she passed away in July 2006. I will always miss her. She used to write me letters and send pictures. She loved God, gardening and liked pretty handkerchiefs. I will never forget her tea cup collection and the fruit trees in her yard. We must have been a handful, when mom & dad took us to visit every year. This picture was taken the last time Grandma Kay came to visit.

The quote reads: Love is above all the gift of oneself. -Jean Anouith
