Morning Beauty and a New Layout...

I got up just before dawn this morning cuz I couldn't sleep. P.S. that is rare for me - LOL. Anyways, I went downstairs, pulled open the blinds in the scraproom and this is what the cats and I saw...I know it's hard to see, but that's two deer at our bird feeders! I was so excited I could hardly stand it! We had suspected that this might be happening because sometimes our feeders have been emptied overnight, but we had never SEEN it happening! What beautiful animals they were - the one was just happily munching away, stopping every so often to look at us in the window. They stayed for a few minutes, and then sauntered away together. My day was totally made.

I made this layout with my SiSTV "Drama Queen" collection. This is the one that I started at my 16 hour crop, but hadn't done the journaling until Monday night. (Click on layout for details)...
I added the alphas and numbers. I had been wanting to scrap this treasured photo for a long time, and the vintagey style of the Drama Queen collection seemed like the perfect fit.

There's a new challenge blog starting up that looks really fun and different! It's called "The Next Step" and it will focus on Mixed Media Techniques - right up my alley! Check it out here!

I wish you a totally terrific Tuesday my friends! I will be back soon with more updates!

I love the simplicity of an animal in the yard! It always makes me smile!! We have tons less wildlife here in San Diego than I did in Iowa! Im mostly getting birds and the neighbors sweet kitty in my yard these days! But I will take what I can get!
