It's All About Me January Post

This month (months) Gill let us have 2 months.Which was truly a blessing with the holidays.My page this month is about Family.Gill's challenge was to  use punches---and I have a heart punch on my layout.I have two grown sons and not alot of "blood relatives" as we say here in the south.I have gotten to know  so many wonderful girls,ladies,etc.thru this wonderful papercrafting internet---this is one of my adopted families.No names or locations of course for their privacy---but I can tell you I love them as I love many I may not ever meet in person but have grown to know thru our papercrafting groups.Not this family but one I have got to meet and we all need people we can love and care about whether they are our biological family or our "adopted" family.This family has truly blessed me and I thank God everyday for allowing me to "know" them.

You'll never know what you will see beyond the looking glass --- sew, sit down a spell and enjoy the talented ladies as we hop along in Wonderland. Warning, watch out for the Queen of Hearts as she is losing in the game of croquet and its off with your heads!!!!!

If you stopped at my blog to just visit today, I don't want you to miss a single thing along the way and you need to start at the beginning which is two hares by the Cheshire cat who is grinning at you and that darn caterpiller smoking her pipe at http://slasewcraftiness.blogspot.com/!!!


My project today is a birthday card made with Graphics 45 Paper and the flower is from Cassies Craft Spot.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed your tea and crumpets and your next stop is not Twiddledee and Twiddledum but Tina - http://craftyandgreen.blogspot.com/
