This is my place to share with family and friends. You might find handmade cards, digital scrapbook pages, photos or a little chatter because those are the things I love. My blog is a work in progress, so be patient with me. Most of the time I think I will be talking to myself, but hey, I'm used to that!

Quick post tonight or should I say morning?

I've stayed up way too late tonight. We had our small group over and my friend Sandy stayed after and we talked until almost midnight. Of course I could have gone right to bed soon after but I had to check emails and whatnot. I have another layout to share with you and then I'll get myself off to bed. My younger sister is coming tomorrow to spend a couple of days and we are going to make some cards or do some crafts. I also have a new Stampin Up package sitting on my dining room table so after I get a few errands done in the morning it will be play time! It is also my sister's birthday today. Happy Birthday, Chris! Okay, so here is the layout. I hope you can see the journaling because I am too tired to type it out tonight. I will tell you I use Tracy Blankenship's Templates With Attitude Trios 1 and Kim Hill's Royally Grunged papers.

Big City Small Town

Okay, so I can't see the journaling so you probably can't either. I hate it
when I can't read the writing on a layout in a gallery so this is what it says:

There is nothing like the hustle bustle of a big city.
It has a vibrancy that makes you feel alive. The noises, the
smells, and the traffic all add to that energy. What makes
this city so different from other cities is the people.
The smiles, the hellos, and the easy way they ask about who
you are and where you’re from. This big city just has a
small town feel. Pittsburgh, PA

Off to bed, good night all.

Nice page. The colors are great and the open area really makes the picture the focal point.

Very cool layout! I just spent the last two days in Kansas City right in the middle of it all and I have to admit I do miss the city just a little! Perhaps I should just visit it more!

Beautiful layout! I love the paper and all the details.

Makes me homesick for sunny crowded Southern California.

Great page. Someone else commented on the page matching the colors in the pic, and that's all I can notice, too. It looks amazing. The journaling looks great, too! I am a small town country southern girl through and through but love pics of the city. Your pages are always great!
