Sad and Lonely

I final broke down and purchased some new papers. Not an entire collection like my normal, but a few sheets to add to my older fall themed stash. I bought some of Echo Park's "The Story of Fall" and their "Dots & Stripes" in autumn colors. They seem to blend quite well with my older Imaginisce patterns.

I combined I Am Roses flowers with a couple of tiny orange blooms from Petaloo along with two of my hand-dyed wool leaves cut with Alterations's Mini Branch and Leaf set. There's also a fern tucked in the mix cut with their Thinlits Holiday Greens.

The fox and under layers were cut using Spellbinder's Scalloped Ovals, Classic Ovals and Deckled Rectangles.  The base mat was cut with Alterations Postage Stamp Frame.

I added just a touch of cotton lace.

Love this little guy.

Now for my big news I've been dying to tell you.

Sometimes what we have planned just doesn't work out, and the Penmaker and I are happy in knowing that God is in control and it's best to just accept what He has for us.

You may have heard that our son is working on his next movie, Beast of Whitehall, and has already shoot a ton of footage. Due to some problems, he has to reshoot a lot of the interviews, which means another trip to upstate New York. When my husband and I heard the Director was planning a return trip, we quickly volunteered to help in anyway... drive him there, hold his boom mic, whatever! So it was all set. We would go in two weeks. I was SO excited! I would actually help film a movie! Little did I know it wasn't meant to be... at least not for me. The team is on their way now, and here I sit writing a post. I had a reoccurring health problem come up, and am unable to travel. Bummer!

I got to help them pack some of the camera equipment last night, so I can still stay I worked on his crew. I'll let you know how things progress. In the meanwhile, the Penmaker and I are spending a lot of time on our phones. I don't want to miss anything!

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is Very cool, love all the layers!! Im so sorry that you didnt get to go with your son to do some shooting for the movie!! I know that feeling of disappointment. I was supposed to meet up with the girls from my class for a reunion but my husbands health and finances nixed it. Sometimes God just has other plans for us, but I know he always has our best! I pray that your health issue improves quickly. Hugs to you :)
