Memorial Day

Spent a nice long weekend away at our cabin.  
It was nice to take some time out today to honor and celebrate those men and women that sacrifice everything they have for our freedom and beautiful life we get to live. 
 Thank them and their families- they are our Heroes.
I love this picture of Shae and her friend Lauren praying over the fallen heroes.  They melt my heart.......

Sweet and Sassy!  isn't that what 14 looks like!

World of Dreams


Getting out the brayer after how LONG!!!!!
Using glossy paper you will pick three color inks to create the background.   I started by using three different colors, I used the blue palette:  Lost Lagoon, Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, starting with the lightest color at the top brayer the colors to the bottom. 
  It gives it a hombre effect.  

Start with the lightest color first then end with the darkest.
