It has been quite awhile since I have used decorative tags on my layouts... Sooo... I decided to sign up for Deborah's tag swap over at Fiskars...
I made this one to use with some pictures from the Missouri Botanical Garden and then duplicated it!
Journaling square is made with Marvy Uchida punches, Bird is made with a Stampers Anonymous stamp, and branch is made with a Sizzlet die...

Ironically, this exact date in history, 1906 at 5:12am, marks the anniversary of The Great San Francisco Earthquake which still ranks as the most devastating earthquake in CA history as well as US history! Obviously, this earthquake was NOTHING in comparison to the earthquake of 1906... However, isn't it amazing that history really does repeat itself in some way or another?!

"...Okay--so here's a gal who needs our support. Nadine is a lovely mother of
three boys who is an AVID scrapbooker and wonderful mom. On January 22nd, 2008, her youngest son, two-year-old Nate, tragically died in a freak accident. Despite this horrible lose and the overwhelming sadness it brought, Nadine has reached out to others to comfort them in their trials and hard times. One of my friends told me about a hard situation she was going through and how Nadine reached out to her. I was deeply touched. I have been in contact with Nadine and have been amazed how she and her husband have chosen to live life with love, forgiveness and kindness, rather than bitterness and hostility. It has been a privilege to get to know her and call her friend.Nadine loves homemade cards and handwritten sentiments. Let's shower her with cards and let her know that scrapbookers around the world are thinking of her and her family. The two-month anniversary of Nate's death will be March 22nd. Try to send your card before or around this date. Nadine doesn't know what we're doing but has given me permission to post her address:Nadine Fenchak, 7422 Brookwood Avenue, Baltimore MD 21236..."
Thanks for taking the time to visit... Take care of you!

NE Patriots: 14 ...... NY Giants: 17
Wow!!! Exciting game last night!!! I have to admit that I have no loyalty to the Patriots nor the Giants, however I was hoping that the Patriots would pull off a win to upset the record that the 1972 Dolphins currently hold for being the only NFL team with a perfect season... I was NEVER a Dolphins fan and was shocked by all of the smack they were talking. Petty, huh?! Speaking of Petty, what did you think about Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers? We thought they were pretty awesome! I was singing, dancing and reminiscing with each nostalgic tune they performed while my daughters just laughed and rolled their eyes in embarrassment! Anyway, on to the best part of the Super Bowl... The commercials, of course! I actually had two favorites... ETrade and AMP! The ETrade commercial with the talking baby was too cute for words! While the AMP commercial with the guy who gave a lady's dead car battery a charge was an absolute hoot!

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day is not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and 2 cups of coffee...
A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly, he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was. The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with an unanimous "yes". The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar, effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed. "Now," said the professor, as the laughter subsided, "I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things - God, family, children, health, friends, and favorite passions - things that if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, house, and car. The sand is everything else --the small stuff. "If you put the sand into the jar first," he continued, "there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff, you will never have room for the things that are important to you. So... Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Take time to get medical checkups. There will always be time to clean the house. Take care of the golf balls first - the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand. One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just goes to show you that no matter how full your life may seem, there's always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend".
