A new update (it's about flippin' time!}

How have you all been???

Me? Ok.

It has been a rough couple of weeks that's for sure.

My friend of 12 years died 2 weeks ago. She lost the battle with cancer. I'm so glad that her suffering has come to an end, but at the same time I'm going to miss her. We had grown apart the past couple of years. It has been an eye opening experience being at her side again, though she couldn't communicate with me that well her mouthing 'love you' and squeezing my hand were enough.

I also lost my aunt several days ago. She passed in her sleep, peacefully, and with no pain. I thank God for that. Her funeral is tomorrow so the family and I will head to Ohio tomorrow.

It has been a surreal couple of weeks, I'm ready for some happy times!

I have the privilege of being a guest designer next week for the challenge blog 'The Design Experiment.' I can't tell you the challenge just yet, but it is a GOOD ONE. It was very therapeutic for me, I loved working on this challenge. ;)

I also get to work with the fall survival kit at Homegrown Scrapbooks. If you've never checked out their kits YOU NEED TO!!! They are PACKED full of goodies. More to come on this....

And I have some Pink Paislee layouts to share. Man, I never get tired of working with this stuff!!!!!




I have felt quite creative lately. Not sure why but I'm not complaining either.
Scrapbooking has become fun for me once again!

This week I will share some fun summer photos with you.

Right now I'm off to make supper for the girls =)
