Some art therapy..

Having a hard time getting my mind off the innocent lives lost at Virginia Tech this week, so I did a little art therapy. I worked in Lilia's book, which I promise to get home to her very soon!
I received this lovely little spring packet from Melissa to kick off a new round robin I'm participating in. It's beginning in May with Lilia, Cassondra, Julie and I all be sending around books to one another. Julie is the lovely host. I'm very excited.Should be tons of fun!

I just bought some of that paper with the tiny rosebuds and the shabby edges!! I love it!! I used it on a project that I will soon offer as a give away. Still loving your altered postcards, mine are still in tin. Unused. Sigh.

I too, have had a hard time keeping my mind off the Virginia Tech losses. To top it off, the high school that my daughters attend, have been getting bomb threats all week! They even lit a tree on fire! The school is swarming with police and FBI, which makes me feel a little better, but when they leave for school (like they just did) I get a very nervous feeling in my stomach. Into the studio I must go to help ease this tension.
