An Angel Left Her Wings
I have this little angel. For me she left her wings.
She has no idea how much happiness she truly brings.
She brightens up my days with her smiles and her laughs.
She helps me to remember all the blessings that I have.
Her face, it is so perfect, she's sweet and soft and pure.
Sometimes she can be willful and sometimes she is demure.
She tries her very hardest to please and do what's right.
She gives the greatest hugs from moing until night.
Every person that has known her sees this light within her soul
I know that in this whole great world, she has a special role.
She's helpful and considerate to everyone she knows
This light in her shines brighter as my angel grows.
When she sees someone is sad, it opens up her heart.
She wants to do all that she can; she wants to do her part.
She'll squeeze away the sorrow and make me forget about my pain.
She shows me where the sun is when we're hiding from the rain.
I know that God must love me, He showed me with His Grace
I knew just how completely when I saw my angel's face.
And in that very moment when she came into my world,
I knew that she was so much more than just my baby girl.
She would be my sunshine, with a sweetness that won't end.
And when she grows up one day she would be my closest friend.
She would be the reason I would always try my best.
For my little angel baby girl would be my greatest test.
When God entrusts to you an angel, who has left her wings for you.
Encircle her with love with everything you do.
Let her know God made her, and that He trusts you with her care.
Be sure to make time for special moments with her to share.
And when at night she finally says her prayers and goes to sleep
I Thank Him for my angel, and ask for him to always keep
A watchful eye and hand to protect her from this world.
Protect my little angel, protect my baby girl.

This week we bring you the works of Mandy Harrell. Her amazing ability with sprays and inks and desugn is evident in this LO. And the photo's of her daughter Raine is beyond beautiful, This is Mandy's description in her own words of how she created the background paper on this LO…
To achieve this look I started with a basic cream colors sheet of cardstock. I sprayed some gold Moonshadow mists to get the golden base. Then I took a screen from Tattered Angels and sprayed it with a dark brown Smooch mist and then flopped it onto my paper to create a stamped look. Then I used a green starburst mist (Moonshadow and starburst mists can be found at LindyStampGang.com) and sprayed all over my background. After it dried I machine stitched around the edge then painted gesso around the outside. After the gesso dried I used gold embossing powder all the way around.
Dont for get to visit Mandy's Blog to see more of her beautiful art!! You will sure to be inspired!!

"Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
