Life is a reat big canvas and you should throw all the paint on it you can.
~Danny Kaye

She is a little older in this picture, and she really looks so much like her mother. This was my first try at a new technique... painting on my scrapbook page. I am normally a neat and pretty scrapbooker. I like things lined up and straight and orderly. My painting here was nothing extravagant...just got the old sponge brush out and started smearing the paint on to the paper. I also used some chipboard letters, an M for Melanie and the L for the first letter of the quote. Page accents also included three black eyelets and 3 spiral paper clips.


My dear husband buys raffle tickets from his buddies at work. He doesn't usually win anything, but we always have a raffle ticket for something clipped to the calendar or stuck to the fridge. We got a message on the answering machine Monday evening... If this is Ken Holbrook and you bought a raffle ticket from the Hyndman High Senior Class, you are the proud winner of the top ticket item, a brand new bike. Not just any bike, mind you...look at this.... Chase 4. All I can say is the first time Travis lets it lay in the yard or takes a wrench to it to tear it apart I am going to scream bloody murder!


That said... have a great day!
