Angie and I plan to start working on this soon! I leave next week for Summer Camp. I will be the Camp Nurse for the first time. Very excited to see how the Lord will work on those kids and I know he will work on me as well. Emma is going to see the Jonas Brothers in concert tonight. It was a last minute trip and I am so glad that her aunt is taking her. It will be an incredible experience for her.
Well the ENUFF meeting was today! And while very few people came, five including myself, it was a good start. We didn't have but about a weeks notice to agencies so hopefully the next meeting will have better representation. We received some good insight on other programs in the area. Most we already knew about. Mikey did an incredible job with his presentation. His heart is so into this program! His drive and determination make me proud! Well I leave you with some pictures from a hike that Emma and I had a couple of weeks ago atop the Liberty Mountain. Enjoy and Thanks for reading!

Here are some of the pages that I created during the Kickoff Crop. This first one was a Sketch Challenge. Pictures are of my SIL and BIL with their daughter and the middle photo is of Emma and I. I need to smile. :)
This was a Patterned Paper only challenge. The pictures are of my daughter and her cousin. They both showed up at church Easter sunday 2007 wearing the same dress.
These are some photos of some of the plants and flowers in our yard. It was for an Ad Challenge.
This was a challenge to use the word "Wings" in the title and some form of wings on the page.

“Unless people speak the truth about what they have done and change their mind and behavior, a relationship of trust is not possible. When you forgive someone you certainly release them from judgement, but without true change, no real relationship can be established.”
That quote is so fitting for me right now! But I leave you with some recent pages! Enjoy! OH.... I didn't make the Chatterbox Design Team. Yes I am disappointed. It looks like a lot of "famous" scrappers made the cut. So if that is what they are looking for then by all means. I will find the Design Team that fits my style. In due time!
OK this is a layout I completed in Raleigh using Stampin Up papers, staples, Kaiser Craft pearls, and a DCWV rub-on. The picture is of my dd (far left) and two of her fellow cheerleaders season before last. I love those snaggle tooth grins! :)
And you know I had to alter my nametag for the Scrappers Dream Vacation! Used some glimmer mist, Doodlebug jewels, and Heidi Swap damask rubon.
This is a picture of my father between his two tours of duty to Vietnam! This was 1968. I used Bazzill cardstock, Tim Holtz (actually made a bookplate into the brackets) chipboard, Scenic Route chipboard letters, Chatterbox patterned paper, and the chipboard circle I am unsure of off the top of my head. Used a chalk ink to ink the bracket. Isn't my dad handsome?
Now these photos are of my daughter and my husband with the puppy Ansel. I used Sassafras Lass and Luxe Designs patterned paper, Love Elsie patterned paper, American Craft Thickers, Ellison punch (hearts), Queen and Company felt, and a 7 Gypsies tag.
This is another layout from the Scenic Route class I took at the GASC in Chantilly. Pictures are of daughter in paint booth at Amazement Square.
Thanks for looking!

I have lots to catch up with on my blog! The weekend before last I went to Chantilly for the Great American Scrapbook Convention. It was a decent time! I did get ill the last day there and could not go to DC. I am bummed about that. This past weekend I went to the Scrappers Dream Vacation in Raleigh. I got 29 pages completed, one mini album, and 2 cards. Therefore there will be lots of yummies to share over the next several days!
I appreciate everyones prayers. I greatly appreciate it! I have gone through something that I did not foresee at all! And the good Lord is giving me strength each and every day! So Thanks!!!
