The Announcement

I am happy to inform you that Victor the Vampire Owl has finally fallen in love.  He has openly admitted to being a sucker for blondes with big red eyes.  It is my pleasure to announce the engagement of Victor the Vampire Owl to Shelia the Socializing Skeleton.

An engagement party was held at the Transylvania Hospital's Blood mobile. Refreshing cocktails were enjoyed by all.   Shelia proudly wore her matching marquis cut diamond earrings.  A gift from Victor's Mother.

Carrying wild red roses, Victor looked resplendent in his Elvis knock off tuxedo.

A personal message was included in each and every announcement.

I will keep you posted as to the wedding details.  Please RSVP to Simply Sandy.
Thank you so much!

It's Been So Long

I can't believe I have not posted since January of 2015!  Since then I have moved from the mountains of North Carolina to an island in the Atlantic  known as Amelia Island on the northeastern coast of Florida.  I love it here!

We have also had an adventure in Peru with our grandson Joe, Jr.

The beauty of Machu Picchu!

My husband, me and our grandson Joe.

I loved the children in the Andes - talk about beautiful.

I made a card -- I even surprised myself!!

In the South, we have a tradition which I am sure they follow all over the world.  Any time we can help a friend we usually take food.  I made this for my friend Alie.
Alie is having surgery in September.  I don't think I am telling tales out of school as she has posted it on her blog.   Such a talented lady and so very nice.  Check out her blog!

One more post for today!  A mixed media make that I will paste in my art journal.  I call it 'What Lies Beneath".

What fun - I have experimented with Lindy's Stamp Gang Star Burst sprays, Brushos, Micro Beads Pollen, Cosmic Shimmer Texture Paste Midnight and Designs by Ryn Rising Bubbles.  I really had fun and want to do more!!!!!!

I know this has been a little picture heavy and I sure hope you haven't forgotten me!
Lots of well wishes for all of you out there in Blogland!

A New Year - A New Beginning

This promises to be an exciting year.  I promised myself that I was going to start an art journal and work in it as much as possible.  A great way to try new techniques and follow my heart's desire.  Here is a look at the first pages.  It is dedicated to my grandmother who more or less raised me and gave me unconditional love.  I do miss her but she is always in my heart.  I called her Nanny and my grandchildren call me Nanny.  On the left side of the journal is a picture of Leoda Martin Fisher - my Nanny.

Who knows what tomorrow will bring but I have to say - I am excited about my new journey!

I  am entering my first journal pages in the following challenge:

Inspiration Journal - Fresh Start -  The sky is the limit.

 Thank you so much for your visit and comments.  My blog has been all screwed up and I am afraid I lost a lot of information but I will slowly but surely get everything back in shape!  Thanks Anne for all of your help.
