Here is my attempt at using some of my older papers. I actually purchased this from a local scrapbook store that went out of business about two years ago. The paper is from Prima Specialty Papers. The paper feels like a cross between mulberry and a handmade paper.
The paper is already framed out with the stitching and then has an inner stitching. This sort of threw me. I ignored the inner frame and did my thing. Sometimes when there is a paper that seems to have the whole layout designed for me I sort of freeze up wondering what to do. I hope I've overcome that a bit in this layout.
This is my oldest child and mom to my granddaughter, Little Honey.

My Personal Glue Challenge
This is another glue experiment I'll be watching for the end-of-the year test to see if it still holding. I used Beacon's Zip Dry. It does dry very quickly and has sort of a rubbery consistency. I hope that means it will be pliable to the turning of the pages in my book over time. It strings a lot but it just takes a little practice to assure that nothing gets on the rest of the layout.

Being a grandma to a 10 month old is fun. Little Honey is walking, talking, can roar like a lion and moo like a cow. LOL She is dancing, trying to jump, and she is a climber! Since starting taking care of LH I've lost over close to 50 pounds and have gone down 4 sizes in clothing! I'm feeling great and having a wonderful time with my granddaughter.
Request of prayers for the family of Tracy Turpen. Tracy is the one that took all those marvelous engagement, bridal, wedding, and after wedding photos of Tabitha and David. She was a world renowned, award-winning photographer and photo artist. Tracy was only 27 years old and leaves behind a young son.
