Julie's Award Winning Rodeo Page

Julie did a great job on this page. She caught the cowboys praying before they rode, thus the journaling" Mama's if you let your babies grow up to be cowboys Teach them to Pray."

We attached some ribbon that looked rustic and added lots of embellishents. Title was cut with Storybook cartridge. ***I just looked at this and realized we put an apostrophe where we did not need one. I wll reprint it. Duh!

Ginger's Football Pages

We printed the title and journaling on a transparency. Ginger took her tie and did a great job!

Today and Tomorrow

are historic days. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day today and tommorrow is the inaugration of America's first black president. As Bob and I watched video of Dr. King's I have a Dream speech it brought tears to our eyes. It is just astounding that in 1963 black people were so mistreated. I was just a child at the time but I am sure I felt the same way my parents did, "they were just inferior. "We always had a black housekeeper and my parents were never ugly to her, but she was our employee . I realize I was too young at the time to have had any feelings other than those that were expressed in my home, but it is difficult to realize that I felt that way also.When I watched the speech today, I saw many white people among the thousands of blacks who marched on Washington that day. I would like to think if I had been an adult at that time that I would have been one of those brave people to stand among the disinfranchized and marched with them. I wish I could have been there. I still remember my father's disdain for the celebreties who marched along with Dr. King. Oh, to have been one of those brave souls. Things have come a long way since those days but people are still discriminated against. I will use this day as a day to evaluate my thoughts and feelings toward others. Am I treating someone differently because of the color of their skin, or because they are gay, or because they are mentally ill? As far as I know God made all people equal as it states in our constitution. So, am I treating them all equally? I repent if I have not treated someone fairly and pray that I will always treat others as I wish to be treated.

If you would like to hear it :

Tommorrow is just a wonderful day. It will give all people hope, even me, hope that things will be different.

Baby Boy

This was Helen's page we did of her son at one year. When I saw the picture, I just loved it. It is an 8 x 10 studio picture. I had saved some Chinese papers and we cut the flourishes with the Cricut. I trimmed it to fit. I think I will add a black border to the top and bottom of picture. I found the words Baby Boy in chinese on Google Interpreter. Neat!!
