I finished my pages for the "tip-in" swap on Christian Paper Artists Yahoo Group! I had to do 6 pages. The thing to do is make six of the same page. I always find that so hard to do and it's not as if I don't have a lot of stuff that needs to be "used up". This page would be so simple to do over and over. And maybe I will do it again.... it's my favorite one. Do you think black wings are okay? I have gold wings...somewhere..... but the black ones were there on the desk and I think they really add something. Gold would've been pretty predictable. We were to have a Christian theme ..... I just put John 3:16 at the top .... not sure it matches the picture.... but that is a verse that shows up in crowds at ballgames and golf events. So what I'm saying is it is good in any setting! The background is a page from a Gregg's Shorthand book. Being a "child of the sixties" I did take two years of shorthand in high school and for many years I earned a living taking dictation. So in the very bottom right of the page I wrote in shorthand "for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son." If you write shorthand, please tell me if I wrote "world" correctly...I think I did. The woman is my Aunt June. She was about 16 when this was taken in the early 50's. She is still a joy! I use this picture A LOT! Sometimes I make a card with this picture (or the one below) and send them to her. A couple of entries ago you see this page with another female in the center.... it's her, too! But I like this one best. We are still dealing with my father-in-law. Now he wants to go back to Tyler, Texas and live in assisted living there so he can be close to his other 80 something year old friends. He will be 89 next Monday. We want him to be happy. So we are working on it. Pray for us. Patience, wisdom and compassion would all be good right now. Have a great Tuesday!
