Life is a Journey...


I am totally wiped out today! First I painted the second coat on my staircase walls...those walls are HIGH! And then I took my two girls shipping for Easter dresses. Do you have any idea how hard it is to find a decent dress for a very tall, slim 14 yr old? All the dresses we saw were made for streetwalkers in Vegas! Sheesh! It took hours, but we finally found one we could both live with. Shopping just wipes me out tho!
I am sharing another scrap page today. This is one I did in November while my wonderful sister was visiting. It took me several hours to do this one. I took an 8 x 10 photo and cut it into a million squares the size of the edge of my trimmer (how's that for a measurement!), leaving the rectangle around my focal point in tact. Then I placed my focal point on the page where I wanted it and started building my mosaic. I didn't use all the "tiles" that I had. I skipped a few due to the 'grout' taking up some space. Now that I have done it once, I don't think it would take me as long to do it again. I think next time I may try it with circles or other shaped 'tiles' and see how that works. Someday....
