Beautiful Dreamer

I've posted this layout at a very different monthly-challenge blog called Artastic. This site offers a work of art as inspiration! This month's inspiration is Van Gogh's Starry Night. Some people could interpret this painting as dark and a little bit menacing but I see the peace and the chance to rest in the dark night! I immediately thought of this picture I had of Temple when she wasn't feeling well, when she looked so peaceful to me as she slept. I knew this would be the photo I'd use to capture the feelings that Starry Night provokes for me.

I just posted this layout over at 52 Sketches 52 Weeks a day late! This is based on their Sketch #41. I tried to get it together but I had my sister and her family over for dinner yesterday and that was more important than trying to get this layout posted before the deadline!

Some details:

I'm out the door to work!

Pumpkin Picking!

We went to the Pumpkin Patch so Temple could choose a pumpkin to go out on the front lawn and one that she and Charles can carve closer to Halloween! I used Sketch #40 from the Let's Scrap site which was totally appropriate for this layout!

Ebony Beauty!

I just posted this LO over at Scraps of Color. It's based on their sister site's Classy Coordinates' sketch #40. This is my 2nd cousin, Ebony from NYC. I took these pictures of Ebony during our Reunion last month. It's been a good while since last I've seen her and I find that she's grown up into a very fine young woman!

When you have a moment, have a visit over at Scraps of Color and Classy Coordinates!

Best regards and Happy Scrapping!

My Truly Lovely Nieces!

These are my nieces, Kera and Kayla and they are 2 of the most sweetest and lovely young ladies I have had the pleasure to know. (I can see my sister reading this and wondering who on Earth am I talking about?)!!! Well, as I am Auntie, I get to brag about them with extreme bias, and in my world, they are just perfect!!! All kidding aside, I am extremely proud of both of them. Kera recently graduated from Florida State University and Kayla placed 2nd at the Florida State Spelling Bee. They are determined young women who I have no doubt will succeed in this world.
