Thank you for the congratulations for Maria. We had a wonderful time, I was and will always be proud of my baby girl.
It was a nice ceremony and Maria looked beautiful too.

My mother, passed away some many years ago, but
Everyday … I miss her. If she is around, this is what I
Would like to tell her …
I am grateful for your beautiful example
Watching the way you care for others
Feeling the grace and strength
At the heart of all you do .
All of this has made me admire you
And feel so thankful
For your place in my life
It made me want to be
Just a little more like you.
“MOM”, … It is so amazing
What a little word can do
It fills the heart with warmth and love
And lasts a lifetime through.
And to all you “Mothers” …..
Lord, we pray for all mothers
Beautiful and wonderful
They fill the earth
Gracious in YOUR call
They carry life
In a hand of love they bring
Forth a child
We ask you to bless all
May they feel the joys of motherhood everyday
In all their struggles giving us a livelihood
May YOUR LOVE and COMPASSION
Be with them for good.
May every MOTHER feel today
The pride and beauty of a family they bear
Through all pain and sorrow Lord
In your strength and GRACE
May they always stay.

Melanie asked me the same question just the other day LOL
Here was my reply to her:
(Hope it helps you too)
You asked about how I do some of my lettering.
Most of the time, unless I am using a pre-made alphabet; I use a program called Print Master Platinum 2011.
I think I got it at either Target or Walmart for about $40.
I really like it because not only does it have lots of clip art, the program allows you to import your own graphics also.
But the best thing is the lettering. The program allows you to put "fills" inside the font that you are using. You just upload a texture, background or any kind of graphic and the program places the picture inside the text. From there you can enlarge, shrink or position the fill any way you like.
You can also bevel the text which makes it look raised.
(That's how I do the lettering on my fruit tags).
You can also add drop shadows or different types of outlines to the text.
I didn't know that the program had all the lettering options when I bought the program, so it was a nice surprise :) I had fun playing with it and learning the various options. It also helped that it is fairly user friendly.
