Stampin Out Alzheimers

Today is the last day for Stampin Out Alzheimers and they have raised over $6500. The original goal was $2500 & after they went beyond that the goal was changed to $5000. Well as you can tell they beat I entered a few challenges with my major mojo and this is what I came up with. This card is for the challenge sponsored by Susana's store. What a lovely sketch Suzanne came up with. I used the Lockhart image Rose of Shanon from Susana's store. The dp is the Wisteria line from Basic Grey and I used my Close To My Heart markers.
I used this altered notebook for two challenges. The paper, label & embelies were a free download by Libby Weifenbach. This is her Flip Flop Tan digital mini kit that was offered to all SOA members. What fun summer colors. I can see lots of projects using these papers. I used Liquid Glass from CTMH on the flowers.
Well time to finish helping Nic with his cooking requirements. He had to prepare 6 things for others. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

Busy Weekend

First I have to tell you about my exciting news.  I am a part of a great bunch of ladies over on PCP.  We are all involved with Susana's store (notice my left hand side bar blinkies).  Well this SCACD group has some very talented design team members with Suzanne Dean as the lead designer.  Well I have been racking my brain to see what I could do to be a member of that team.  So to make a long story short I made a suggestion about our PCP group to Susana & between her and Suzanne they will be featuring a different guest designer from our group every third week.  Guess who is the first.....ME!!!  I am so blown away and totally excited.  This news has shot my mojo to outer space.  I so created all weekend.  I will be featured the week of June 8th.  YIPPIEEE!!  For now check out the store's blog at Hearts & Hugz to see all the wonderful projects from the design team.

****Happy Birthday Chelle****

I am just so excited to wish Michelle a Happy Birthday today.  One reason is just cuz she is just the best friend anyone could have & she is the sister of my heart.  How many people are blessed to still be so close with their friend from their youth?  I am one of those people.   I met Chelle when I was 8 years old.  My family had just moved to a new area of Boise, ID and being an only child my mom suggested I knock on the doors of the houses down my street and see if there were any kids my age.  After meeting one boy about a year older, I knocked on another door and the nice lady said she had two daughters.  One my age and one a year older.  

Here we are.....32 years later and that daughter that was my age is still the best est.  We have endured living in separate states; hours of phone calls; letters;  summers spent together; going to college together; several boyfriends; marriages; kids; sickness and her divorce.  I so wish I could help her through all the illness she is suffering through along with the pain she is enduring.  She knows how much she is loved and that she will be healthy and happy again.  Here is to a new year and all the wonderful things it will bring her and her kids!!!!!

Me & Chelle at Disneyland in 06.  She was in pain but she still smiled.

Adam & Chelle.  She had just been through a second surgery & was able to enjoy Disneyland only due to the wheelchair.  What a blessing that was for her.  The walking would have done her in.

LOVE YA, HUN!!!!
