Hey gals,

I am feeling better.  I slept 15 hours yesterday!  How can you not feeling better after that?  I needed to do a page for my mom-in-law for Christmas.  She loves handmade gifts.  I had the picture I wanted to use and when I saw Sketches in Thyme's new sketch, I knew that was the one I'd use.  

The paper is all Basic Grey w/ the exception of the bazzill paper I used as the base.  I went crazy with the Prima Flowers :))  I used Helmars V2 for the vellum quote.  I love that stuff!  You can't see any glue.  I used Helmar's 450 for the flowers.  It is quick drying and they will never move.  That was important to me as this will be hung on the wall most likely.  The picture was taken at her house..  They adore her.  Nick and Lara are always asking when they can go see Nana.  It's really awesome.  What do you think?  Think she'll like it?

I am also entering my layout in Allsorts Challenge blog, where the challenge is anything goes.

Here is the original sketch:

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  Any last minute shopping?

Hi there

I am thrilled you have joined in my "Free and Easy" theme at Allsorts this fortnight and confess to being astounded by the huge response this weekend.

I usually like to visit every entry and say a few words about their creations, but the sheer volume so far along with the Christmas preparations we all have to juggle means this is a "copied and pasted" message, for which I apologise.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and wonderful holiday time.
