More pix and instructions for my entry....

Cover: (Angel Magic) – Created using Lyrical Letters, using the Loop Dee Loo font, cut at 2” for each letter. Used halo for dotting “i”, using “angel-s” (Shift/Headwear) from Paper Doll Dress Up (p.75), cut at 5” (even though it doesn’t look like it).

First Page:- (computer-generated)
"Angels have magical powers. When you have an angel by your side, you’re never alone. I discovered this when I was going through some difficult medical problems. I would look at my “angel wall” where “angels gather” and I would gain strength, comfort, and know that things were going to get better. In my case, though, my angels had to “work overtime” on me. LOL

We all have angels -- if we would all only believe in them! They come in all shapes and sizes, as depicted by my book. I would like to dedicate this book to “my angels”."
