I have the Pencil Lines bug!!!

Happy Monday ladies : ) PENCIL LINES put up a new sketch yesterday and can I tell you that I did this layout in a matter of what seems to be minutes.

prima prima

The only thing that took long was the cutting out of the animals, actually that was not that long but the drying part was, I decided to put Crackle Accents on them and the orange background is masking tape covered with modeling paste which was then sprayed with Color Wash once it dried, that one took a while to dry, but all in all it was so easy to create. I think I have the PL bug : ) 2 challenges in 2 weeks??? That's a record for me : )
The words on my page are from the song "Love is where you are" from the movie At First Sight and that is the song that I will dance with my husband if we ever renew our wows. It's the perfect song! And the yummy Prima papers are from THE PAPER NICHE and can I just tell you that this is now my favorite layout and I just noticed that after almost 12 years of being married I still lift my foot when I kiss my husband : )
Now on to other things, I thought I would share some pictures of what I am thankful for this month

I am thankful for the men and women who are out there risking their lives for our country, whether I agree or disagree on this whole war thing, I am thankful for their courage and for the daily sacrifices they make, this past week our daughters school asked the parents to make care packages for out troops and I jumped on it like a fire fighter to a fire ; ) and our Princess made them this beautiful card and she wanted to send them a picture so who ever got the packages would know who it came from so I put to pictures of our girls and wrote a little thank you on the pictures as well as on the back of her card. Sorry for the crappy pictures but it was late when I finished packing : ) and here she is at school with a box
It's great to know that our troops will be getting all these boxes filled with goodies, body wash, Tylenol, Visine and so much more for the holidays and it also teaches our daughters that sometimes it's better to give than to receive.
Well ladies, as always THANK you for you beautiful comment and sorry for the long post : )
Have a wonderful week!!!
