Mouse Map Collage Piece

Little mouse collage piece.  I have this cool pocket map book, it's about ten years old.  I found it at a used book store in Beaverton, Oregon.  The book store is soooo neat!  It's located in an old house across from a little park with fountains and giant gorgeous library...sort of a historic looking area. After some renovations the park is the heart of Beaverton.  The Saturday Market and Wednesday farmers market happen in that park. Also the movies in the park during the summer. Lucky for Paul and I the church we were married in is also right in that same area.  They even planted a tree with a plaque the same year we got married in the park.  NOT because of us but still it seems like it to us! 

As my Mom would say right now, "It's not always all about you!" What? No way!

I've been creating little collage pieces for some painting ideas I have stuck in my head.

I'm also really excited about the card making site I've been working on.


Happy PPF!

Such a cute mischievous mouse!
The old book store sounds interesting, just the kind of place I adore getting lost in. And the tree, it was a gift from above, really nice story! Thanks for sharing.
Congratulations on your new site.
