It's really going to happen! I was begining to think I wouldn't live long enough to see my son get married (he will be 38 in December). Jeremy and his girlfriend had things they wanted to accomplish before getting married - getting out of debt (old school loans), finishing education, etc., etc. So Berkeley and Jeremy have been together 7 years and just officially became engaged this month. Jeremy designed her engagement ring and proposed to her in the Japanese Gardens at Maymount Park in Richmond, a place that was a favorite when they lived in that area. http://www.4shared.com/zip/bADf7ZyOce/ws_ATouchOfBlack_papers.html?

Busy week here. While I'm deciding what I'd like to do next digi wise, I thought I'd start of series of color themed packages. Don't know about you, but sometimes I' looking for a pop of a certain color and have found it helps to have some folders that are sorted by color. Under Sher Scraps 4 CU, I made color sets previously that were CU. Since I'm not selling at this time but may in future, I'm making some mini color sets that will include a few papers in a color along with a number of elements in that color. The ones I'll be offering on the blog are listed under Wonderland Scraps and will be free for personal use. If anyone should wish to be able to use them commercially, I will sell under ss4cu for $3.00 per set. Just contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with SS4CU in subject line, tell me which of the sets you want and I will send you a preview showing CU and a tou to that effect. One color I don't use often but decided to start with here is yellow. It came to mind while discussing wedding colors with son and his fiance. They are having a beach wedding and he knows he wants blue and khaki but she hasn't made up her mind what other color to use for bridesmaids and accents. Thought she might want a touch of a warm color and offered suggestions of her signature pink, coral and yellow. Yellow is a warm color that looks good with blues and suits a hot beach theme. So, You are going to get a yellow package first, lol. http://www.4shared.com/zip/LVSyayIPce/ws_ATouchOfYellow_papers.html? and nine elements here: http://www.4shared.com/zip/jLTDpOtTce/ws_ATouchOfYellow_elements.html? BTW have you tried the free game, Gummy Drop at Big Fish Games? It's addictive! http://www.bigfishgames.com/games/9931/world-saga/?pc

Just a quick share of a journal page I made with a background from Mermaid Musings, an alpha from Dana Conditt, and some photos of my Red Lilies group.

Hope you are having a nice weekend. Today I have part 2 of the papers for the Mermaid Musings journal page kit. http://www.4shared.com/zip/yO3SQfFeba/ws_MermaidMusings_papers-2.html? Yesterday was fun at Horray For Hats. We met at a small restaurant that holds a little over 50 people and it was packed. Lunch was a combination of Filipino and traditional American food. Great lumpia! There was a vendor present who sold jewelry - mostly the bold sort of bling the Red Hat ladies favor. The big hit was a tiara which was snapped up quickly by one of the chapter Queens. (That's what we call the leader of a chapter). Lots of good chat and visiting. 3 people at my table won door prizes: our Queen, Mary and Cynthia won their choice of hats and I won a goodie bag that held a multi strand necklace of white beads. Normally at these events there is line dancing. Some danced to a few songs but it was a hot day and the A/C wasn't functioning properly so we gave it up quickly.

Here you go, part one of Mermaid Musings - the elements. http://www.4shared.com/zip/DnrxmS5Sba/ws_MermaidMusings_elements.html? Hope you like it.
Here it is almost the end of summer. Where did the time go? Actually, I do know. July was a whirlwind of doctor's appontments for June, her surgery, and after care. Still much going on in that area. She is doing really well. Surgery went off without a hitch. She didn't have any nausea after and little pain. On the down side, biopsy of lymph nodes done during surgery found cancer in 4 out of 11 and more cancer than in the tumor itself! So, she will be starting radiation treatment soon. Right now, it's physical therapy because she needs to be able to get the left arm up over her head so they can safely radiate the area in question. Once it starts, she will have 28 days of 30 minute radiation treaments.
