A Beautiful Life...

This is something that I have been thinking about lately as I make the blog rounds. There are many blogs I visit simply because of the beauty of them (Posie Gets Cozy is at the top of that list.) These are places where it feels like you are entering into someone's welcoming home where everything is beautiful and peaceful and is the kind of home that I want to create for my family. There are so many little things, little touches that you can do to make life a little bit more pleasant and I have come no where close to that in the last year or so. I am going to try and do better.

With that in mind, I created this layout which is actually something that I am going to frame up and hang in my bathroom to remind myself of my goals. The photo is from Mt. Vernon, but is simply a reminder of a beautiful vignette that I can create anywhere in my own world. The quote is one that Rita posted on her blog a few weeks ago which I found to be very profound, and it says, "It is never too late to be what you might have been." --George Eliot

The papers on this are Basic Grey- Lily Kate although the base and corner are from Wild Asparagus. The chipboard and flowers are Heidi Swapp and I am not sure where the metal frame came from...

This layout is one that I did for the Cottage using KI Memories. A collage of more photos from Mount Vernon.

My layout count is now at 19 out of my 100 layouts to create before I can buy new stash.

Beautiful LOs. So I'm gonna try again to post. It seems to change. So you are really clicking off the LOs to 100. I wish I had more time to play ART.
It's Sharon at Norah's
