So, I'm in a much better place tonight than I was a few nights ago. The moods come and go, which is normal for the grief process. I'm learning to roll with them when they come. Thanks for the continued thoughts and prayers. So, after that last downer of a post, let's get back to the fun scrappy stuff. I went to a crop at Kimi's store and managed to complete five layouts and start a sixth. I wasn't really in a scrappy mood or I might have finished more. Oh, well. I helped one of the other ladies put together some paper robots for her classroom decor. They turned out adorable...we finished 50 of the 125 that she needs. Yowza. That's a lot of robots! It was fun, though, and well worth it to help out a teacher who's shaping the lives of our youth. They don't get appreciated enough, IMO. I also borrowed some stamps from James' personal collection (he was so sweet to share). I colored in a mermaid stamp with my faithful copics, but I've got to get a card made with her yet. Anyhow, here's two of the layouts that I finished at the crop. The first is Sophie, one of our siamese. She has a thing for the gold bows you put on top of presents. She gets super excited about them. It's really cute; she sticks her little tail straight up in the air and twitches it whenever you show her a new one. The second LO is Athena with her daddy. The pics were taken only a few weeks after we brought her home. She was just a tiny little thing; less than 4 pounds. Speaking of my spoiled little babies, Athena is laying on the floor next to my chair, purring away. She's got her belly up to the sky, waiting on some attention. I'd better go answer the call. As always, thanks for looking at my creations!
