Father's Day Acrylic Album

I know that I have been talking about my upcoming classes and I have finally finished the sample for the Father's Day Acrylic Class. I have included a slideshow of the pages, I apologize for the quality of the photos. It is very difficult to take pictures of an acrylic album. This is the second acrylic album that I have done and they are really fun. This one is in the shape of a house. The paper is 7 gypsies, the stickers are SRM, the chipboard brackets are bazzill, and the ric rac is also bazzill. I can't remember the brand of the other ribbons. I have used pictures of my father in law. He is truly a wonderful man.

I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week. Thank you for stopping in.

New Pages



I got a chance to scrapbook last Friday and I did get quite a bit done. I completed this layout of Easter 2007. I am still really far behind, but I have been skipping around to what looks like fun or to what I feel like working on. I am trying to squeeze some of my pages in while still working on projects for Scrapbook Garden and other people. I will post pictures of a Father's Day Acrylic Album that I will be teaching next month. I am looking forward to that class. Thank you for peeking in.

You never know who you will meet in life and what they will come to mean to you until something happens. On April 9th I received a phone call from one of my best friends telling me that her husband had a heart attack. I could not believe it. I did not know what to say or do. I kept in touch with her throughout the day to find out that he had another heart attack and had flatlined twice. I have never been so scared in my life. I did not know what to say to Toni. I just knew that I wanted to be there for her and the kids. Toni and Mike are very special people and I could not understand why this was happening to them of all people. I know that God was with Mike and wants him with his family and friends. It is truly a miracle that he is still with us today. He did get to come home over the weekend, but he still has a long road to complete recovery along with some lifestyle changes that everyone will have to learn. For everyone that has been praying for our friends please continue those prayers and thank you so much. We are so very happy that Mike is home where he belongs and on the road to recovery.

I am so glad that Toni and Mike have become such wonderful friends. We love them just like family.

Get Scrappy

A couple of weeks ago I spent Friday and Saturday at Get Scrappy. This was a fundraiser crop for the YWCA Crisis Center. The whole thing ended up raising over $14,000 for the crisis center. I had a lot of fun and ended up getting a few pages done in the process. This is just one of the layouts that I did get done that weekend. I know that it says 2006, but I am still working on 2005 pages as well. I am going to srapbook this Friday and I hope to get more pages done this weekend. I apologize for the photos, but I have not gotten anything to put the pages against so that they don't bend. I will get better. Thank you for peeking in. Have a great week.

The call came in on Friday- "Your people, my people, same time same place. Let me know." Meaning do you want to meet Sunday at 10 at the zoo. Our Godson loves the zoo and last year we started meeting him, his little brother, and mommy at the zoo on Sunday mornings after church. We love spending this time with them. Zachary seems to really know and love all animals, but seems to have a special fondness for cows. Today we had to see the new calf that was born on Friday. After we saw the new calf we went to the new restaurant for our drink and popcorn. Enjoyed a short break where Zachary tried to catch the birds that were flying around. Zachary became our leader for the rest of the morning. I didn't get as much scrapbooking done this weekend as I hoped, but I plan to try and get some done this week and will post some later in the week. I hope you have a great week. Thank you for peeking in.
