My sister's paintings...

I just had to share these precious paintings created by my very artistic sister Jill, who lives in France. She has just started to get back into painting and these are her first canvases for a number of years. I'm so proud of her and wanted to show them off here. A bit about the subject matter:

This is Jill's daughter-in-law Evi and Nicholas, her dear little grandson.

This is a painting of Katie, Jill's daughter and my dear niece, with her horse.

Thank you for looking.

Posts on Parade - Erica's Everyday Events

The nominated kit for this week was Lake House, here are some of the beautiful layouts created using this kit.

Carolyn (AKA sammdc), has the most gorgeous daughters and you can be sure they are always scrapped to perfection. Like this stunning example here.

Don't you just want to hug little Ryan, he's such a cute little fella and so concerned for his brother riding this BIG horse. I love this layout by ManyFeathers.

Here MusicTeach shows us a great example of what you can do with photos of a speeding puppy that's not quite in frame. What a cute pooch he is too, this layout had me smiling as soon as I saw it.

What a great collection of photos Sheryl (AKA swatkins56) has taken with her cell phone no less, wish mine turned out like that! This is definitely a handy thing to have for those spur of the moment shots.

Sandy (AKA Sandygb) has some amazing nature photos and this one of the mountains near her retreat is no exception. Such beautiful Autumn tones that just draw you in to the serenity of the layout.

Thank you ladies for allowing me to publish your beautiful layouts on my blog.
