a new look


How do you like my new look? My sweet friend, Kim Broedelet, surprised me with it over the weekend, using her new Soft Whispers kit. Isn't it gorgeous?!!


That was the inspiration for today's word art. And before anyone says anything about it, I DO know that two of the words aren't REAL, and quite poor grammar. But they suited the purpose for my gratitude to Kim and I thought they'd be fun on your layouts. I used Kim's SW papers in creating this WA today...you can use them together or separate them, as you wish.


She made a blinkie for me, too, and I'll post it as soon as I can figure out how to install it properly. I'm really behind the times in some of that sort of thing! Sorry about that.

I have some fun things to tell you about later this week but I'm not quite ready yet. Stay tuned!

In the meantime, I want to heartily thank all of you who had such dear, sweet, kind things to say about my Dad's September kit. After all the wedding hullaballoo over the weekend, my mom and I slipped out Sunday morning to put fresh red roses on my father's grave at the cemetery ... it seemed fitting and lightened our hearts. I'm glad this kit gave some of you special memories of your own. Thanks for sharing them with me.

Have a great Monday...and thanks for stopping by,
Melanie

Go to blogger - EDIT LAYOUT and add a widget- choice HTML and then insert the CODE you copied from photobucket ;-)
move it down to where you want it and save.
