Two By Two


Hello Dear Ones!!
Well, now that I seem to be up and running correctly on my blog 
I can show you some of what my dainty fingers have been doing.

Here's my two page spread for Dana's circle journal.
Her title is "Knowing Me Knowing You"  ah-haa

Oh course I started to think about being all girly and stuff so that's what I went for.


I found an image of a sweet little dresser and added a lace skirt.
I added titles to the little bottles on the dresser: Joy, Hope, Love, Peace, Bliss and Smile.
Gave Dana a little black dress and purse so she would look fabulous!
Pretty girly, don't you think?


Then on my second page...more girliness.
Her request was we were to pick five words about ourselves and use them.
So going along with my girly theme, I used five mirrors and added "my words" on the fronts and also a little lipstick kiss (keeping it girly). :)


The five words I used to describe me were Christian, Creative, Pollyanna, Discerning and Sixty.


I loved how the little mirrors turned out.


Then I fixed the mirrors so you can flip open the glass and read why the words apply to me!
I'm so wonderful, aren't I? 
Oh, I should have used the word "humble", you think? 
Please know I'm just a silly and will always be a silly.
Shoot! I didn't use that word either. Maybe I should have used 10 words to describe me and not just 5!
Hope you like my take on your journal, Dana!


PART TWO
********************************************************
Now you'll know the reason for my title "Two By Two".


I failed to post my pages last month for Kay Ellen's journal "Travels By The Sea".
So to delight your most gorgeous peepers...here it is.

Well, since Mr. Precious and I are cruisaholics, that's the first thing that came to my mind.

My first page has a graphic of an olden add from the Cunard Cruise Lines.
We made a transatlantic sail on the Queen Mary 2 a couple of years ago 
and this just seemed a perfect spin for me to use.
I was informed, the Cunard vessels are not cruise ships they are ocean liners.
La Te Dah! :)
Cruising is so relaxing and very bubbly...notice my circles  and hand drawn bubbles.


I love the olden graphics and just had to use them for this page to show
some of the many wonderful things to do while cruising.
Bon Voyage...gotta get on deck and wave your tiny hand off! :)
Play deck games, attend parties and meet folks!

'Member those little rubberly swim caps? :)

But one of the most memorable things about Travels By The Sea is eating!
There's always something to eat everywhere you turn on a cruise ship.
Sadly, there doesn't seem to be any more midnight buffets but there are some midnight chocolate buffets!
Holy Moly! Now that's my kind of buffeting!

I'm so enjoying being part of my circle journal group. I'll be receiving another journal to work on in the next few days. We have a month to work on the journal and then we pass it on to the next.
If you ever get the chance to do is - go for it!

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ this was a given! :)

Knowing Me Knowing You

No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes
Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye


Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we're through
(This time we're through, this time we're through
This time we're through, we're really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
It's the best I can do


Mem'ries (mem'ries), good days (good days), bad days (bad days)
They'll be (they'll be), with me (with me) always (always)
In these old familiar rooms children would play
Now there's only emptiness, nothing to say


Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we're through
(This time we're through, this time we're through
This time we're through, we're really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
It's the best I can do
