Catty Conversation ATC

I haven't created an ATC in a LONG time.  In fact, I often use ATC collections in my "regular" scrapbook layouts.  But this was so much fun to create! I need to design them more often.

OScraps has a Twitter challenge . . . to scrap using their Tweet Tweet Collab AND using a tweet.  Since I'm new to Twitter, that was definitely a challenge, but I tweeted (twitted?  twittered? LOL) today and used that.  I'm alone.  Yes.  Alone.  I said it.  And it echoed in here.  So guess what I'm doing?  Yes.  Scrapping.  I'm spreading my wings and I'm flying, y'all!  Have a great Saturday!

CREDITS:  Fancy - Don't Take Your Love To Town by Studio Rosey Posey; font is P22Grenville
Journaling:  I entertain the worst thoughts in my head about myself.  I amalways thinking that I do not quite measure up.  I feel like aprisoner in my own mind.  I know that I should think on goodthings, and yet what I think about on a daily basis are all myshortcomings.  Why do I cherish such horrid thoughts insteador embracing what is honest and true and beautiful?  I knowthat I am a slave to sin set free from my bondage, but why doI so many times feel that I am a slave to these thoughts?

Lucky Goldfish

CREDITS:  ARTist to ARTist Tales of the Orient by sherrieJD; fonts are Firefly Castle and Pea Shannon
Journaling:  i love to rememberhaving breakfast with mama last september, and then walking outside to enjoy her garden.  one of the best features is hergoldfish pond, which exists because a tree was uprooted after Hurricane Ivan in 2004.  Journaling (Left):  mama had always wanted a goldfish pond, but the expense and effort made it an unlikely addition.  and then fate stepped in.  in the fall of 2004, a hurricane uprooted a tree by the patio, making the perfect hole for a goldfish pond. mama was devastated to lose the tree and from just the utter devastation in the garden, but she was able to see ahead and realize the blessing in disguise.
