The Sky is the Limit

Hello everyone,

I hope you are all safe and well - especially if you are in one of the many Southern Alberta communities that has been affected by the mudslides and floods this past weekend.  Over the past twenty-four hours, the floods have headed into Medicine Hat, my childhood hometown so I hope everyone there is safe and with loved ones.  Luckily, my family lives far from the river.

I've spent the last four days in Lake Louise in the Canadian Rocky Mountains National Park.  We arrived in the wee hours of the night on Wednesday and by the time we awoke on Thursday morning all the roads leading into and out of the park were closed due to washouts and mudslides from the heavy rain storm.  Many were stranded, unable to return home for several days.  In spite of being in one of the most beautiful places on the planet, I was relieved when the highways started to reopen and I am glad to be home.

Onto the reason you are all here - stuff made with paper.  I have made a few cards for Showcase Monday on the Scrapbooker's Paradise inspiration blog.  Here is one of them:

I hope you will pop over to my Scrapbooker's Paradise blog post here to check out the others.  I have also included a supply list on that post for anyone wanting to know what products were used.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment.  I appreciate each one and love having the chance to visit you too.  I am looking forward to catching up with everyone now that I am back home and seeing what you have all been creating.

What a great "collagey" card, Dawn - so pretty with your feminine touches - I love it! The soft colors in contrast with the black, the musical notes - it all looks great! I am glad you are home safely - I feel so badly for all the people experiencing hardship due to the North American weather calamities the past few years - seems to be increasing in strength. Be safe, and thanks for letting us know you are ok. hugs, de
