Sweet Treats Cafe

last night we had a "Sweet Treats Cafe" at the church I attend! I invited the M.oms I.n P.rayer group for a girls night out for this event! We had a light supper, amazing desserts and coffee. We had a guest speaker and it was a very nice evening! Here's a pic of our group:
I'm gonna go work on a LO for this event now! Blessings my fellow scrappers and friends!

8th grade

yay! another LO today!I have had a blast today! This is Liam's 8th grade "casual" pic - these are taken every Spring. He's growing up so fast!

in bloom

Springtime is here! Actually it's been here for weeks now....This LO has pics from the last few years and I really like how this page turned out! Have I said how much I love stitching? The stitching here is all hand-stitched and I used Bazzill templates as well as the cardstock and the green border strip. Everything excluding the cardstock is from my stash! I have at least one more LO to share today but for now this is it! TFL!

cupcake decorations!

I think I have mentioned before on here that I am part of a prayer group for our school district. It was called M.oms I.n T.ouch but it has been changed to M.oms I.n P.rayer (go figure!) The group meets at my house once a week to pray for our kids, the teachers and faculty and staff of our small school district. With it being close to the end of the school year another mom and I are making cupcakes to say thank you to the schools! Actually the other mom is making the cupcakes and I am making decorations for them! I thought these would make good decorations and easy too:
these flags were for a LO about a parade in our school district and I'm thinking of "thank you" on one side and "from M.I.P" on the other. I have the toothpicks ready to go:
I am excited to be able to do this! So off to work I go!This is the page I used the flags on:
 I hope everyone is having a great weekend! Blessings fellow scrappers and friends!

tough guy!

it's almost the weekend and I was able to scrap a bit this week. This LO is for Scrapbookers Anonymous - to use maps and brads. The arrows on this page are brads courtesy a friend over at Club CK. I also am using this LO for the weekly challenge over there - use a quote. Everything on here is still from my stash! I did go scrappy shopping last week but haven't used any of it...yet!!!
off to scrap some more!

Another challenge!

I used this LO for Let's Capture These Sketches!

DT call @ Sketches in Thyme

@ Sketches in Thyme there is a design team call! love, love, love sketches and this LO is all about our new friend "Bunny." There was a class at Club CK by Kim Watson about "Spring Flowers" and I used the one I made here on this LO! So here goes:

our new friend

we found a new friend last Sunday in our driveway! poor little thing was freaking out! so my son and husband brought it inside and then went around the neighborhood to see if anyone had lost a's funny 'cos you don't often see "Lost" signs for birds....the boys came home with no luck of finding its owner. Monday we went and got a cage for her (at least we think its a girl...from what we read online) and she has a nice little house/cage in the office. Here she is:
so now we have a bird! She is getting used to her new surroundings and is not very noisy. In fact, her cage is next to our water cooler and when its coils cool and make a whistling sound, she answers it back! Crazy I know!!! I'm off to scrap about her now! Yay! Today over at Club CK Kim Watson hosted a class on "Spring Flowers" and I am going to try to do 1 or 2 for this LO. We named her "Blue Bunny." Hope everyone is having a great weekend!

March family time

this LO is for ScrapFit's weekend warm-up - use at least 4 photos! I loved this! thanks for the challenge!

happy Easter!

wow! I so need to keep up with my blog more often!
what's new?! I had my 10th infusion of M.S. meds Tuesday at the hospital and am so thankful that I am feeling better these days! It has been a busy week! In our school district we have a group of moms (Moms In Prayer) that meets once a week at my house during the school year to pray for the kids,teachers and administration of our district. This last Thursday I hosted a scrapbook tea party for the group and it was such fun! I just showed a few techniques with cardstock colors and matting and arrangements for a quick and easy page. A good time was had by all!
Yesterday was Good Friday and I spent the day scrapping with a friend after making a stop at Archiver's to buy a much needed album and a few "pretty" items! It was my first time shopping since December and we had the "spending freeze" challenge over on the Club CK site! Surprisingly I did not spend a ton like I thought I might what with not having been scrappy shopping in months! So I have a few LOs to finish and post today in a little bit.
Last night our church held a Passover and Seder dinner! It was really great and was such a blessing for our family! It was truly a great honor to be able to attend and learn about this age old tradition, really a great learning and growing experience! It was a late night somewhat and we still have plans for the rest of the day - Easter at a friend's and then dinner out with more friends! Fun! Tomorrow we will attend an Easter service at our church and then that's it for me! I am already worn out and am grateful to be able to be doing so much, to be enjoying this awesome Spring weather and to worship the Lord in reverence and awe of how He is transforming my life and that of my family! Have a great day! Blessings!
