Always Family with Gossamer Blue and NEW CREATE Magazine!

And July 15th, really?  I am just NOT getting where my days are disappearing to at all.  I think I have all this time and then, WHAM, nope, nada, zilch.  

Family, if you think about it, is a strange word.  Everyone thinks that family is this:   a group of people who are related to each other (thanks Merriam-Webster).  But, in reality, family are the people that you surround yourself with, whether you are related or not.  Honestly, I do not have a lot of "family" left that I am related to.  But, I do have groups of what I consider "family" that I am not related to, but at times feel closer to them than my own.  I know this is not a revelation on any level to anyone, but sometimes as I look thru other people scrapping their memories and families, I have to remind myself of this very fact.  And the fact that there is NOTHING wrong with it, just different!

Ok, enough of the being "brainy" on here!  Love this photo of Carleen's aunt and uncle with their grandkids.  I had to steal it off Facebook to scrap it!  And three of those babies are adopted, but loved so so much!

I am working on the random placements, but it is hard for me!  I think I am getting a little better at it!
