It is already very warm here this morning - makes me long to be outside today, but that is just not possible. Monday is my 'clean-up' day and if I don't attack it now I will push the entire week out-of-sink (pun!) I really enjoyed making this latest layout - the picture Miles took made it a very simple one to do, and I also really enjoyed using Melissa's Templates. This is the first time (blush) that I've actually used one even tho Melissa gave them to me several months ago. What a powerful tool. Miles was so impressed that he has asked me to compose a scrapbooking tutorial for his students! I was dreaming different templates in my head last night!

There has been a good wind the past few days and it made the bleeding heart plant out our front window spread out and flatten (did not get a cage on it early in it's growth) so I had to improvise. I used a technique that my Gramma used often. I took a pair of old nylons and cut it into one long strip (about 12 feet long) by cutting down the middle of the legs from the waist, which made the hose twice as long as they would be originally. I then made a loop in one end and (with help from my Prince Charming) threaded the hose-rope back on itself and then wound it up and around the plant several times. This allows for the plant to move a bit with the stretchy-ness of the nylon.

You may notice that the download link to my elements expires after a week - if you would still like any of the ones that are gone, email me at
lalalime@hotmail.com and I will send it to you! (yes, Valerie, I got your message about the tulip - I will put it in the mail today)

Have a wonderful day!
