Dancing as fast as I can

The weekend was spent racing around getting everything caught up, finished and done for dreaded Valentines Week at the flower shop.

Mom came it to town Friday afternoon
(she had been in Tucson). She only stayed overnight on her way back up the hill to Flagstaff in order to beat the big winter storm that was approaching Arizona which predicted snow for the high country and rain for the valley. Saturday morning we attended a lovely brunch hosted (hostessed?) by the wonderful ladies at Mystic Paper. Kim, Jennifer and Ellen treated some of their bloggers and teachers to delicious quiche, muffins, fruit and yogurt. Sheri was there and I got a chance to meet Lisa of
House of Hullabaloo, she is so fun! Mom got a chance to put faces with the names of people I talk about.

I finished and turned in my design team project ( it was one of my "to do" before Valentines). The team was asked to make 2 layouts with the items selected. I picked up a few other items at MP to embellish the layouts. Some Prima flowers and 7 Gypsies fabric covered brads (they were too cool!) and some ivory lace.

On the "Tea Party" layout I made flowers out of the ivory lace, with the covered brads as the centers.

The heritage page is of my great grandparents and how they met. This time I used the covered brads by themselves, layered the flowers and added some 7 Gypsies gaffer tape.

While I'm here (posting) I might as well (as promised) add a valentine card from holidays past.

This was the Valentine for 2006. See they are getting better.

Your pages are just so wonderful they help me get in the mood to do geneology. It has been a while but I am really excited to get started again.
