A Little Bit Larger Now!!

Ya know...what a little tease that scanned magazine page was in my last post - my apologies. If you have eyes like me, you probably have a hard time making out the image on the kite layout below, so I decided I would be generous with less than 20/20 vision viewers and show a larger image of my Scrapbooks, Etc. "debut". (LOL)
The photos are rather old, seeing as how our daughter is now 5, and don't forget that half! Very important to a young lady to add on that half year to her age. Just wait until she is mine - she will want to deduct those 6 months! When I took this photo of the butterfly kite we were flying I knew right away I would want to do a tiled look to mimic the stained glass pattern of the kite itself. Rather than split my photo up, I simply cut a frame from black cardstock. It reminds me of the attic windows quilts I used to enjoy making.
Today the talented and inspiring Julie Overby has tagged my blog. I admit, a lot of times I do not have the time to carry through on a tag, and I apologize to anyone whose tag I did not pursue. Julie has made this easy on me, asking only for 7 random facts. That is doable, and here they are!
1. I pray a lot and try to stay focused on Jesus.
2. God has blessed me with a tremendous family.
3. I love circles and curves - absolute elements in my layouts.
4. Julie introduced me to Fiskateer-dom and I am number 2490!
5. I was a writer long before I scrapbooked (especially poetry)
6. Always dark chocolate
7. This is my favorite number!

Without further tag list - 7 bloggers that I hope will share 7 random facts about themselves are:
Kitty (cuz we need more pickle juice!)
