I'll say what everyone is thinking, "This year is flying by!" Here it is, the beginning of September, and I haven't posted for July and August yet.

My entry "Take Flight' for the HMSC ATC theme for August "In Flight."

My entry "Life is a Picnic" for the HMSC ATC theme for July of "Picnic."

These three cards I made during one of Tiffany's July card club gatherings using samples and products prepared and provided by Jen & Kathie. The butterfly is a die cut and the Thank You and Live in the Moment are samples of "simply made - yet elegant" cards.

August 29, 1958 – June 25, 2009

On June 25th while on my drive to have a short visit with Tiffany & Paul before our trek cross country to visit family in Ohio and Kentucky, a stunning announcement echoed from the radio that Michael Jackson, age 50, had passed away. The "King of Pop" was gone and made for a somber drive as I turned from station to station trying to catch as many songs as I could. Throughout the listening and singing to the music of this wonderfully gifted and talented person my spirit vacillated betwixt melancholy and elation as I relived moments of my life through his song. Rest in Peace, M.J.
