a fire for books! I bought a Kindle!  I'm so stoked!  I didn't think I'd like it even though I bought it but it's great.

Years ago, I sold my book collection.  Nearly 4,000 pounds of books.  The overwhelming majority of them were science fiction/fantasy.  My favorite author is Mercedes Lackey and her Heralds of Valdemar series.  I had read nearly all of them.  Those, too, I sold.  I miss them.

I purchased 3 of Mercedes Lackey's Heralds of Valdemar series for my Kindle and have finished the first two.  Arrows of the Queen, Foundations, and Intrigues.  I have read Arrows of the Queen at least a dozen times.  Foundations, I had read once.  It was the first time for Intrigues and I totally enjoyed it.

A couple of friends liked mine so much and the review that they are going to purchase Kindles too!  Man, I should be on commission for these things!  LOL

Magical Sea by Chili Designz

What a great kit to work with!  I had a great time doing layouts with this.  Beautiful shells and leaves to arrange around your images.  Awesome!

Jardin en fleurs by Louise Scraps

Lovely kit! The floral pieces here are gorgeous! Would be wonderful with little girls or big girls! :) I think my favorite color in this kit was the warm orange!  I'm desperately wanting some warm weather right now! :)

Journaling reads:  "This is my Sweet Pea Freya.   I also call her "The Lidda-dog.” 
When she was a puppy, I came out of the shower one day and
couldn't find her.  I finally stood in  the center of the apartment
and started singing "Oh Where Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone"
& she came running.  To this day she still comes when I sing that."
Journaling reads:  Finding a camel tied up outside the local Sonic next to our church was pretty surprising! While they wouldn't let Chase and Brianne any closer, I just had to have this picture.  Definitely a PRICELESS moment!

I had a great time using the SteamPunk kit from EMS Arts.  There's just something about gears and rust!  LOL

Summers Rainbow by Athena

Great summer kit from Athena.  My summer pictures are few and far between so thought I'd get a little outside the box.  Great for Birthdays!

Here are a couple of layouts I did with Summers Rainbow.
