Life Book Week 10

The month of March starts Week 10 of Life Book 2013.
Our theme is Celebration and Connection.
The mastermind of Life Book, Tamara Laporte, guided us.
We made a list of heart connections...
and then wrote notes of Gratitude to those blessings...
and rolled them up into little scrolls and made
a dimensional heart from these connections.
I have thought alot about connection over the last few years
and totally enjoyed this lesson. 

The window is from a photo I took in Italy a couple years back.
I used all kinds of layers in the background.
Washi tape and magazine words.
Stamps and Rub ons.
Doilies and stencils.
I used a piece of lace from my wedding dress.
And did you notice the center heart is made of thread and fabric scraps.
The little scrolls of paper hold my messages of gratitude.
 I loved doing this!
My friend over at Blue Skies,
Lynn Richards, said this....
'Jesus, Therapy and Art saved my life."
But it totally describes my experience too...
and I might be paraphrasing it a little.
Find Lynn here,
Here's to Connection!
