More PHOTO Fun ...

Good Afternoon Everyone!!!  

It's been a busy day with physical therapy, grocery shopping and a little crafting!!  I was busy making a NEW Mother's Day card for my Mother (more on that creation this Sunday, Mother's Day) and decided to play along in the Crafty Secrets and Heartwarming Vintage Challenge over on Papercraft Planet.  Following along with the HUG HOP going on over on the Crafty Secrets Site, Jan has challenged us to use PHOTOS on our creation along with something CRAFTY SECRETS.  My sentiment comes from the "Story of Me" Crafty Secrets stamp set.

This photo goes "way back" to the 1950s and it is my sister's and I all ready for church.  I'm thinking it was probably EASTER since we always got FANCY dresses, gloves, hats & purses for Easter Sunday.  Do you know which one I am???  I give you a hint ... I have an OLDER sister and a YOUNGER sister!  Yep, I was one of those problem, middle children!  LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by today!  For those who have inquired ... the physical therapy for my rotater cuff tendinitis (in both shoulders) seems to be finally helping.  I actually spent a lot of time yesterday crafting without having to stop due to the pain ... that's a good thing!!  LOL!!  I'm a little sore today but that's because I had PT this morning ... tomorrow should be better.  Thanks for all your kind thoughts & concerns!   HAPPY DAY my friends!!
