omgoddess isnt he a peach .

blessings to all babies ,those with us,those who are not.
some amazing words to leave you with .

On Joy and Sorrow ....Kahlil Gibran

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.

And the selfsame well from which your laughter rises was oftentimes filled with your tears.

And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.

Is not the cup that holds your wine the very cup that was burned in the potter's oven?

And is not the lute that soothes your spirit, the very wood that was hollowed with knives?

When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy.

When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.

Some of you say, "Joy is greater thar sorrow," and others say, "Nay, sorrow is the greater."But I say unto you, they are inseparable.

Together they come, and when one sits, alone with you at your board, remember that the other is asleep upon your bed.

Verily you are suspended like scales between your sorrow and your joy.Only when you are empty are you at standstill and balanced.

When the treasure-keeper lifts you to weigh his gold and his silver, needs must your joy or your sorrow rise or fall.

bonjour cobbers..

another quick post ,cause wow ive been creating again..
(with my new work roster ,its taken me a few weeks
to get my sleep patterns set up~i just cant be up scrappin
all night ,and get up early to 25 kids..eek)
so i threw this one together last night...more randon scrappin.
this lil man i bought home from sweden(where i lived in the early 90's)
during st lucia day in sweden the children dress up...
the boys as star boys and the girls as st lucia herself with a
crown of candles on their heads...
ohhhh the kids look so devine and its a really beautiful tradition....
one i hope never to forget..,
now ive scrapped about it,neither will the kids ..

oh i just love this pointed finger stamp....
reminds me of laughter and lots of fun with my brother ,
watching monty python anything and everything..,
its an image that terry gillian/m(sp?) loved to use during the flying circus series ..
now i use it on almost everything...
cause i love it !wish i had it as a large foam stamp.does one exist ???
does anyone know?

miss boo boo peeps is one week into recovery from the "op" that had to happen but i kept putting off...,until last week ,when she came on heat,and well she taught us all a thing or 2 ....
one day boo will never be a mummy.

(much to astrids disgust~"how could you mummy")

whose up for a challenge ??????

come on scrappers ,i'd love to see the wonderrful layouts that those out there in the scrapworld can create .this is one i set last month ,but due to to unforseen circumstances /and lucky for all thosew who missed it can still jump in

heres the challenge over at scrap the girls.....

get your paints out

I'm totally addicted to bright paint

i almost have to use it on every layout .

create a layout using paints as a focus..

no pattern paper can be used, only cardstock and paint

pictures cut outs from children's books and hand written journaling..and have lots of fun"

you have until august 31st to get your layouts in...:)
