More Pocket-FULL's

This is Karen's cute little book (I love the small ones!). Her theme is Imagination.
This is the pocket art - a vintage postcard image from Paris.
I like this quote and included it on the back.

Our son, daughter-in-law and grandkids are staying with us this week (they're on vacation!). This is Tessa, Ryan, and Brianna playing Disney Sorry. Grandma played with them. We're having alot of fun, even though I started my new job on Monday. This picture reminds me that they're growing up so fast (oldest will be a teenager in December). Take time to enjoy your family!

Sweet Dreams

This is my artwork in the latest book for our Pocket-FULL Round Robin.
This is Kim's book and it's so small! I love the size. Her theme is "o joyful child". As I was looking through my images, pondering what to do, I came upon this darling angel image. I immediately had a vision of what I wanted to create. It turned out better than I imagined.
I included a short story on the fold-out tags. It says "She was known simply as the "Sweet Dreams" Angel. She traveled the starry night looking for little children who wer having trouble falling asleep. She would gently caress their forehead and sing them a soft melody which helped them drift off into a peaceful sleep."

After I took these pictures, I went back and drew in stars among the words. Happy 4th of July, everyone!
