A Weekend of Revelry!!!

Ohhhh boy, this week has already turned out to be soo wonderfully full of revelry!!! 

We are thankful for all of the prayers for my mother-in-law…she is doing great! Still recovering from her gall bladder surgery, but hopefully tonight is enjoying her first night of much better sleep! Keep praying for her quick and pain-free healing with no more complications!!

Today, I celebrated Mr Gorgeous coming home from California, and tonight, after visiting his mom, we celebrated his homecoming by going out to dinner with his sister and her beautiful daughters, and then the 9 of us went to see Percy Jackson and the Olympians… Fabulous!! We all agreed that the casting was great!!! (Uma Thurman=scary!!) Even Lillian stayed awake…I'm wondering if we will have a little sweetheart in bed with us tonight!! We'll see…

Before we went off to party together (i {heart} my family), I whipped something up to show you tonight! Remember those antique pictures I gave away?  (they are still in the freebies section of my blog >>> check it out on the sidebar!) Well, here is one example on how to use them!!

I started with an antique photo that I've scanned, and I printed out another copy on photo paper.

Then I gathered a bunch of stuff that I wanted to collage with it. I was sooo very fortunate to win a big batch of fun goodies from Virginia over at Galloping Pony, and I just knew that this image would go perfectly with some of the fun stuff she sent! 

I tend to not be able to cut up books unless they are really cheap and I can live without them. So I decided to pick a poem and just reprint it on the laptop, using a typewriter font, a color behind it and my brayer and distressing ink from Ranger Inks.
