This card is for my new card patient. I written before about being a card angel at chemoangels.com. My past patient went into remission and graduated from the program. My new patient is an 11 year old girl that has a brain tumor. If you would like to experience the unbreakable spirit of this girl, please visit her journal on http://www.caringbridges.com/. Type in emilywilson. This little girl has an outlook on life that we could all learn from. She always includes a joke or riddle in her journal entry, so I like to send her a card filled with jokes. This card includes dog jokes. What kind of dog does dracula own? A Bloodhound! LOL
This next card is a thank you that I made for some of the ladies that attended our ScrapPink event. The inside reads - Thanks for saving the Hooters! I have to admit that I lifted the idea from Archivers, but put my own spin on it. The owl is from the Happily Ever After cricut cartridge. It is hard to see, but I stamped a ribbon on her chest with versamark. I think that she turned out adorable.
I even got a layout done! I love these pictures. Before my kids were in school we would take pictures in November (between the October and December birthdays). Once the school pictures started we went less for the "family" shoots. I think it is time to make an appointment for pictures. :)

Well, the kids are back in school. They are both at the top of the food chain at school this year - Michael 8th grade - Maddie 5th grade. Back to school for me means back to crazy. Early mornings, helping at school, lots of homework, working at the karate school (both Michael and I), student council (both kids), chorus for Maddie, basketball for Maddie, did I mention LOTS of homework? I do miss the lazy days of summer.
I have been extremely busy putting together a ScrapPink Event with a friend of mine. For those of you who don't know about this cause - it is sponsered by Scrapbook Etc. It is a scrapbook event with proceeds going to Susan G. Komen. I have planned this event twice before for local scrapbook stores. This year we decide to hold it at my friend's scraproom that we use once a month. We have been planning for sometime and this upcoming Saturday is the big day. We have so many raffle prizes that have been donated by local business that it is almost crazy!! I am humbled by the amount of places that have come through for this event. I can not wait! Even Maddie is going with me! I will update with the amount that we collect. Wish us luck!

Finally some layouts!! We had a great time as always and as you can see I got some layouts done! Some I created from scratch and some I had from past classes and was finally able to add pictures and finishing touches to. Either way I came home feeling great about the work I got done. Yeah me! I must send out a thank you to Gina for the Brush Lettering on my Halloween layout and Carrie for the awesome winter and 4th of July 2 page layouts!

Hopefully all of that will change this weekend. I am headed to my "girls" weekend. A group of us try to get together once a month. We meet up at one of the girls businesses which also houses her scraproom. It is a great room above the business that has been converted to a large scraproom that can fit approx 8 - 8 foot tables. We all bring food, drinks and snacks to share. We even sleep there! We always have a great time and hopefully I will have layouts to post!

I must start out by wishing my mother a Happy 80th Birthday! She is so special to all of us! She has 3 kids, 8 grandkids and 5 great-grandkids. We love you, Mom-Grandma!

Just a few more cards that I finished. I challenged myself to use old techniques. Paint, chalk, stamps...I love new products, but still want to show my old ones some love.
It is hard to see here, but this card has some bling on it.

The 3 layouts above are from a kit that a friend of mine put together. Let's all give it up for Carrie!! Carrie teaches kids classes at the LSS that I use to manage. I was ordering the kits for Maddie, but decided to use them myself. I just LOVE her stuff!!!!
Chemoangel.com - this is a site where people who are going through any kind of chemo can join and they will be assigned an angel. There are several types of angels - I am a card angel. Once a week I send a card to my patient. Currently I have 2 patients. One is a women who has breast cancer (the above cards were made for her) and a 4 year old boy with luekemia. I encourage all of you to check out this site and become an angel. One card a week - that's it.
