Time to Go Home

Happy Monday everyone. Can't believe this is the last week of July, already! But of course, summer always flies right by, doesn't it?
My weekend was very  quiet. Well, not exactly that quiet I guess, my living room ceiling finally got finished! Or like 95% finished.  We just have a window to trim out and the attic door to put back up. And I have a little touch up painting. We had some ice dam/leak damage this past winter and my daughter's boyfriend had been working on it (around his work schedule.)
I love how it came out, and even thought it took longer than the couple of weeks I expected, it was worth the wait.
Here's a little peek. We have a barn door that closes off our bedroom from down in the living room and we covered that to match the ceiling. 
So today I have another in the last few pages in the Lizzie and Wally story. 
I am really happy with this page. I used a Gelli print (made on printed paper) and attached it to some white water color paper for the background. I dug out lots of things from my stash to embellish this page. I was kind of naughty too, because I covered over the air mail stamp, or at least quite a bit of it. And I love Lizzie here. I used a die cut of a lady and then I made her cute little dress out of one of my used wipe up paper towels. Yes, the ones that usually get thrown into the trash. Love the texture it gives.

I am linking this page to Art Journal Journey, hosted this month by Valerie and Susi.
So quite a bit going on this week round here- starting today with some more tests at the doctors.  Nothing wrong with me, just checking if  could be a potential kidney donor to my husband. Hmmmm. We shall see.
Hope your day and week are wonderful and I really appreciate you stopping by my blog.
