BOD= book of days..=FUN

tag page..decided to make the whole page a giant tag..release the ribbon and the tag opens..

when the tag is released a feather falls loose...this is the year joy will fall on our house..God is good!

you may recognize her from a previous post ,,she is a little creation of mine that sold...this year I will trust my instincts. and Be my authentic self.

thu and fri....I think of the end of the work week as golden days...almost the weekend ..you can feel the sense of relief...

Challenge was to do a mosaic page so I did a small one, the faces remind me of all the wonderful people I take care of that have Alzheimer's disease..I like to think of them in their younger days. They bless my life daily.
