Digital Scrapbooking en-us Wed, 01 Jul 2015 00:18:29 +0000 PhotoPost Pro 8.0 60 For Ang! <a href=";title=for-ang-21&amp;cat=810"><img class="imgborder" title="Card_for_Ang.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="Card_for_Ang.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: home in ottawa<br /><br />Description}: Those of us who have been hanging around DD for a while, are familiar with the work of ang66. She has an amazing eye for capturing the perfect shot, and then scrapping it just as perfectly! Seriously, take a look through her gallery! Ang posted in the forum about her recent diagnosis and it occurred to me that just as it takes a community to raise a child, a community may also help to heal. While I created this card with Ang in mind, I realize that there may be others in our community who have not shared a diagnosis or other life crisis in this public forum. I would like to send some positive energy your way too! So, feel free to share anything that you have found to be personally inspiring...a quote, song lyrics...whatever! Peace! Thinking of you, Ang!!!!!

Most of the crud is on its' way to resolution now...and I have a black car again! I should also explain that the Spring thaw in Ottawa causes salty, muddy (from sand spread during the Winter to improve traction) puddles and lots of spray...

A recent conversation with my Mum made me want to document the story. Sad that my parents didn't write stuff down when I asked.....and that I didn't write it down, when they didn't. So many of our conversations these days seem to start with &quot;Remember...?&quot; and end with, &quot;No.&quot; The paper in the background is a scan the receipt for my mother's engagement ring. It reads, &quot;Diamond single stone ring in platinum and white gold. Diamond shoulders. /Secondhand 45 Pounds&quot;. (Sorry, I don't have a 'Pounds' symbol on my keyboard.) Dated 6/7 February, 1950.

Thank you to everyone who expressed their concerns that I have been MIA for a bit, rest assured that all is well here. I have been busy at the cottage this Summer and when I have been home, I have been trying to make a dent in my fabric stash, leaving little time for scrapping. Last night, a severe thunderstorm passed through Ottawa leaving downed trees and power lines in its' wake. The power was out from 4 to 10:30 pm, but my laptop battery was charged and I took the time to play in PSE. Shall I just say that it has been a &quot;critter-filled&quot; summer?
