  And it is a good morning. The rain has washed Illinois clean and it even has a fresh smell outside.
      My son & family are coming to see us today  from Oklahoma. We had a close family friend get killed by a hit & run driver over the weekend and the funeral is Saturday.  So I will get to see my grandsons, but not for a happy occaision.  They will help cheer us all up!
   Well I have been a busy girl! Since I don't get around much, I have gotten a bit of scrapping done.  About 15 cards that I am making for a couple of Aunts for Christmas gifts, to be exact!  And a layout for "Scrap Your  A** Off" competition.  I am not as happy with the brightness of it, but it is a good layout.  Went together fast...the paper kinda dictated what I should do.

     I sold this paper in my store several years ago.  It is from SEI. I knew when I saw it that I had to save it for a "Lisa" page.  She is from Kansas and is a Wildcat fan. So purple is her fvorite color!  I made this one 12x12, so I will have to make a separate one for her 8x8 book. Which is ok, I have some more of it! The pictures were from when sheand her hubby were here last summer.  We went to Springfield, Ill. to see all the Lincoln exhibits. That was a great day!
  But you didn't come here to hear about vacations!  Here is a close up of the "fussy cutting" that I did!  It was a little tiresome, but I got it finished. I added the wee tiny pearl bling on the petioles, again tiresome.  They kept sticking to my fingers!! The large flower is a piece of chipboard that I covered. I didn't realize until I saw the picture that I didn't ink the inside of the flower!  It is still chipboard gray!
I used this flower on another project some time ago for a small cork board to hang in my room.  Looks so different with different paper on it! I had a couple of the packages, left over from owning the store!

Well Dreamers, that's all I have today.  Need to get busy doing a bit of house cleaning for my family.  I have the word "Dream" all over my house to remind me that, even small dreams are dreams.  If you have a dream, you still have hope.  So for now, I am Dreamin' of a fully recovered keep Dreamin' too!
