Time In A Bottle

(click image for credits)

When I took this photo, the song Time In A Bottle by Jim Croce came to mind. I knew a few of the lines, but when I looked it up on the internet, I was touched by the words. Croce wrote this song for his child shortly before the plane crash that took his life. The song was released after Croce's death and made it to #1 on the charts.

Time In A Bottle

If I could save time in a bottle
The first thing that Id like to do
Is to save every day
Till eternity passes away
Just to spend them with you

If I could make days last forever
If words could make wishes come true
Id save every day like a treasure and then,
Again, I would spend them with you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
Ive looked around enough to know
That youre the one I want to go
Through time with

If I had a box just for wishes
And dreams that had never come true
The box would be empty
Except for the memory
Of how they were answered by you

But there never seems to be enough time
To do the things you want to do
Once you find them
Ive looked around enough to know
That youre the one I want to go
Through time with

Wonderment

I made this layout for a Challenge at Live Out Loud Scraps. I just love the place. It is such a friendly atmosphere, the kits are fun and fresh, and the Challenges are awesome.
I tried so hard to get that perfect photo of a bubble and was so happy when this got picked for layout of the week. (Click image for list of credits)

Magical

This is one of my favorite layouts. Last year we had a little "Caterpillar Princess" for Halloween. A few days before I took photos to send to the grandmas, we went to a wedding where the bride made these little princess crowns all woven with curling ribbons in fall colors to give to the girls at the reception. The guests all received wands (straws with the ribbons) to wave around as the couple was on their way (instead of throwing rice or blowing bubbles). I collected the left over wands to make my own for my Caterpillar Princess. (click image for credits)

Color Me Blue

I made this for the Color Challenge at Live Out Loud Scraps.
It was so fun to go back and look at my daughter's baby pictures and to see how much she has changed. (Click Image for Credits)
