YUM


I am really quite amazed at the comments I receive and want you to know that you have made this senior citizen very happy.  Welcome to my new followers.  I feel as if I have my very own private art museum when I visit your blogs.  Thanks for all the fun!!


This is going to be a quick post.  I made a couple of dictionary pages for an Alpha challenge at the Craft Barn and missed the deadline .  What better time to post then right now!  I will give you three guesses what  word I used  --  the first two guesses don't count!



I will let my pages speak for themselves - the proposal is worth the read!!!!

Thanks for your visit and I am so appreciative of your wonderful and encouraging comments.
Sandy

I love these pages and this is now my favourite and will be until you create another. What a fun couple of pages... love the image of the girl and frog and think the story is such a hoot. Your daughter is a lucky girl to be the recipient of this fabulous book and what a keepsake it will be.

Linda Palmer said...

Very beautiful pages Sandy. I love them, love what the pages say and love your art. I always love what you do because they are always fun or beautiful or both. I got home last night from CA. My son got sick on our way home from the airport and is now in the hospital with an un-diagnosed illness. I am hoping the Dr. decides what is wrong with him today.

Hiya Sandy! The blog world is a lot of fun, isn't it! Its so cool to see peoples great works of art and gain friendships across this wonder world we live in! :D

I love this Alpha challenge and your pages for it! LOL that princess and the frog are adorable and yet you've made them humourous! hehe

Certain sounds like Mr frog is talking about a maid or nanny or something, not a wife lol!!!!

Lots of fun!

Myrna said...

Love your soothing background colors Sandy! You have such a way of making your pages flow seamlessly. I had to laugh I had wanted to put on my niece's prom picture "you have to kiss a lot of frogs, etc". I decided against it in the end. Not a very nice thing to do. Always love butterflies!

Pam Sparks said...

Made me laugh! You are so clever and creative Sandy! Love that you colored a super cute image and created around it. So FUN! I don't think I could let a frog wash my clothes though! lol

Sylvia said...

By some blog friends I first write my comment in Dutch and then I translate it in English sometimes with help from the translation sites from the web. It is more work but easier for me because I can express myself better this way. And still it sometimes make no sense what I am writing LOL, I mean the grammar stays difficult. But now your letter P. I think you did an outstanding job with this word. Wow, great sense of humor together with a lovely story. Also the image with the frog is hilarious, such a funny image. The background is also a big WOW, those colors are fantastic with all the fabulous butterflies. It is a gorgeous fairytale!!! Hugs, Sylvia

Netty said...

Kelly

koala said...

OMG, this is soooooo beautiful and gorgeous !!!
My eyes are soooo bad and my glasses does not work enough, and also my English is still small .... so hard to translate the part of the book, however , it looks sooooo BEAUTIFUL with pretty colors and stamps !!!
This your project looks so much FUN, and are you using the same book so far ??? It means ... you paste some paper or embellishment also ??? and does it being thicker and thicker book ??? I am just wondering .... how you can keep going to make for a book, if you paste some papers like a scrapbooking ... (^.^;)"""
Is it getting thicker book ???
Anyway thank you always for sharing beautiful and fun work !!! (^_^)/"""
