Folded Corner

First off, Big thanks for the wonderful comments on Candy's christmas page. If you don't already know how to do a folded corner and want to learn...I'll give you a link to a video tutorial that I used to make my corner. It will cost you a $1 but it is such a great technique to know that it is worth all 100 pennies! While you're at it, sign up for her free newsletter and you will get a free technique every week for PS/PSE (usually a video) .The techniques are free for a week and then they go into the store and can be purchased for a $1. You can get more if you become a premier member but I think it's around $40 or something. The tutorial is called Painted Shadows and you can get it HERE .
Also, if you like all the felt and want more if it, you can purchase the felt action I used to make this kit HERE.
Now go forth and CREATE!!!!!!

this came in my e-mail today and i thought of you:

Why Dogs Don't Live Longer Than People

Being a veterinarian, I was called to examine a ten-year-
old Irish Wolfhound named Belker. The dog's owners, Ron , his wife,
Lisa , and their little boy, Shane , were all very attached to Belker
and they were hoping for a miracle.

I examined Belker and found he was dying of cancer. I
told the family there were no miracles left for Belker, and offered
to perform the euthanasia procedure for the old dog in their home. As
we made arrangements, Ron and Lisa told me they thought it would be
good for the four-year-old Shane to observe the procedure. They felt
as though Shane might learn something from the experience.

The next day, I felt the familiar catch in my throat as
Belker's family surrounded him. Shane seemed so calm, petting the old
dog for the last time, that I wondered if he understood what was
going on. Within a few minutes, Belker slipped peacefully away. The
little boy seemed to accept Belker's transition without any
difficulty or confusion.

We sat together for a while after Belker's death,
wondering aloud about the sad fact that animal lives are shorter than
human lives. Shane , who had been listening quietly, piped up, "I
know why."

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his
mouth next stunned me. I'd never heard a more comforting explanation.
He said, "People are born so that they can learn how to live a good
life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?"
The four-year-old continued, "Well, dogs already know how to do that,
so they don't have to stay as long."

Wow! That is one smart 4 year-old. How true that is! Thank you so much for sharing that with me even though it did choke me up a bit :( I finished Candy's album and will upload the layouts tonight or tomorrow.
