rest easy tag

I'm back!

No posts since May? Wow! I knew it'd been a while cause of all thats been going on here but didn't realize it'd been that long. But, as yall can tell, I'm home! lol. Took over a month to get psp onto this laptop so I finally got it up & running for good this morning & to honor that occasion, I put this up that I'd made a couple weeks ago when I was testing psp to see if it was ready yet. It just fits so well how stir crazy I was going without psp to play in.

happy memorial day dad!

happy memorial day! this one's of Tony's dad, Bob from his army days.

RIP Tori Stafford

No Fear in Heaven

There are so many things in life
that we can't understand,
like why a tragedy like this
can happen in this land.

One moment life is perfect
and the next it falls apart,
leaving us with nothing
but an eternally aching heart.

Our souls cry out in agony
amidst the suffering and despair.
We feel the pain and tear our clothes
and scream "It isn't fair!".

Spirits are now shattered.
Hearts will never be the same.
We grasp at straws and seek to find
the one who is to blame.

Horrific as our life now seems,
one thing remains quite true.
Our little ones have now been freed
to do things angels do.

They can't recall the horrors
of those last days they were here.
They remember not the terror,
the hurt, nor the fear.

There is no fear in Heaven.
No more sorrow. Only Joy.
It's filled with joyous laughter
from each little girl and boy.

We can only try to imagine,
in spite of all earthly wrongs,
our little angels are learning
the words to the Angel's songs.

Amidst the children's laughter
and their Heavenly play,
there's also more important
work going on there today.

Jesus is building mansions,
never taking time to sleep,
for Reunions are being planned,
yes, even as we weep.

The children gather around Him
and listen to Him speak,
for He has all the answers
that they curiously seek.

He tells them for a time,
in Heaven, they must wait,
and then they can meet us
at Heaven's pearly gate.

Happy Mother's Day mom

RIP mom, we love you. It feels so weird that we won't be hearing your voice this year, or seeing your smile as you have fun being onry again.

Cowboy memorial for Mom

Made this memorial for mom tonight from Mustang Saloon's paper. Soon as I saw the paper I knew it'd be perfect for a page for her since she loved westerns so much.

Thanks Shey!!

She was so sweet & made me a new header for here, I put it on just now & I just love how it looks. Thanks so much sis, its beautiful!


I was challenged by my sis-friend Jade. Here is the challenge: Go to your photo folder in your computer. Go to the 6th folder of photos. Go to the sixth picture. Put the picture on your blog and description of it. Invite six friends to join the challenge. Link them in your blog and let them know they have been challenged. Here is my photo:

It was sent to me by one of my best friends Bear from his home in the Alberta Rocky mountains. He took it a couple months ago on a clear winter morning & since he knows how much I miss living in the Rockies myself, he sent me this photo.

ok, the people I challenge are:

any & all designers out there

Getting together a mega collab kit idea if yall can help. one of my friends, Shey from Dragonstar Productions just had her mama die this week so we're trying to get a bunch of designers together to make kits, tags, whatever that are PTU & have the proceeds go to help offset the cost of the funeral. Jade over at is joining me on this effort. Anyone that can help with designs, or even with spreading the word would be so appreciated.

Red Moon Rising kit

This is one of those random doodling, push a button & see what happens type of kits. I work on it for a few minutes, stop, go again, so on for about 2 weeks or so then decided its big enough for yall. lol. There's over 20 papers & about that many of the elements & frames.

Its become an incredible train with so many wonderful designs, I'm sure my computer is screaming at me by now but its so much fun!

Here's the other stops along the rail: <~~ (Train Station) (yall're here now)

One day only sale on PTU kits!

One of my dear friends, Jade, is having a one day only sale at her store for next Saturday so I made this for her to advertise. For that day only, all her PTU kits are completely free to help spread the word about her adorable kits.

Rubies & Gold QP

It was recently pointed out to me that I didn't give credit for the talented designers who made the pieces I used for making this QP. I hadn't thought about it simply cause I used several different kits' pieces on here. But since I never have claimed to make these actual pieces, only to put them together into the QP, I'm editing the post to give credit as best as I can. The red jar is from Missie Cook at, the scroll I really can't remember where I got it from since I've had it for a while now but if anyone can kindly tell me if they've seen it, I'll gladly mention it on here. Several of the other elements are from Irene at
