*omygoodiness....its the last day of july* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

...which means that I ALMOST forgot to post my monthly photo with the kids in honor of my fellow Scrapping the Music DT member Aleida Franklin.... for those that have not visited my blog before... Aledia tragically lost her life in an accident almost two years ago....and she started a tradition on her blog to take photos of herself with her kids every month....for our babies don't care if we have make up on, or our hair is a mess....or if we have a few pounds to lose...they just see Mama....and sooooooo every month, I have vowed to keep that tradition alive.... and I have...and today is the last day of the month...and I almost forgot...but here I am with my babies *sigh* look at Adam...he just got home from spending two weeks with his Grandparents on his Dad's side...I have missed him! :):):):):):):):):):) He is 13 and only about a 1/2 inch shorter than me ... and I'm 5'9"!! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

*when a friend asks for some hope...you make sure they get it* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all.......

My dear friend Sherry has been sick for months, the doctors kept her home bound for months and now she is on a no-talking order from the doctor to rest her vocal chords from all the coughing...and Sherry lives in Phoenix like me...and let me tell you, our air quality here is terrible....with living in a desert, you get dust, and no wind, so the pollution just sits on top of you, all the time....in fact I was telling Nikki Sivils once that our county actually sends out warnings to people here when the air quality is at its worse so that people with bad asthma and allergies and children to stay indoors to not have the bad air quality affect them in a negative way....sooooooooo my poor dear Sherry has been affected by all of this on top of being sick....and last night on her blog...she asked her friends for HOPE. I am sure after being home bound, and not being able to talk (you all know that would KILL me, right?? lol!)... has worn her patience thin...so HOPE is what she needs...and so tonight...I made her something that hopefully will give her that HOPE she has asked for........Sherry...I will have this off in the mail to you this week...and I HOPE you like it...you are such an amazing and BEAUTIFUL woman...and I am BEYOND honored that I know you...love you dear sweet Sherry... :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

The quote reads..."Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier" :):):):):):):):):):):)

(Sorry for the shadowy photos...the sun was setting when I was taking these...)













A lot of the goodies on here are from my sweetest Diana's ETSY shop! :):):):):):):):):):):)

And I also wanted to share that ScrapbookCircle.com's August kit is now AVAILABLE!! WOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOO!! I will be sharing my creations SOON! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

*my loves* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

hi all......


yesterday I went to Bethany Kartchner's class with my friend Heidi.... had a blast... and sadly didn't get my project completed in class... but lucky for me... as when I was reading through my blog list this AM... I came across "The Studio's" latest challenge which is to make something with some new goodies and some of your stash!! PERFECT for what I started making yesterday in Bethany's class and finished this morning!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) Bethany taught us different techniques for the mini book we were making... and here is my completed project! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)










































 




Ok....so let's see.... the new items include the items Bethany included in her class materials..which is the mini book itself, the stars, MLS alphas, the shimmerz products we used in class, and MY new items I added to this...which include Sassafrass alphas,  Lillibee rub ons, blue flower from Tessa Buys ETSY Shop, and from my "old" stash are...the felt heart on the binding rings which I got from my dearest Gudrun, the Prima flowers on the front cover, the wings, the yellow trim, the "Love is a many splendored thing," flair buttons, twine, "you" letters from Prima, button flowers, SRM Stickers, metal flowers from my dearest Jeanet, tags from K&Co., and one of my tissues flowers that I learned how to make in Bethany's last class:):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):) Yeah, yeah... I know... I used more stash than NEW stuff... but hey... its better than hoarding it forever!! LOL! I have been trying to be better at using it... it looks prettier on a project, then tucked away in my tote bag! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And let's see.... Brookie got a get well gift from Katelyn!! Thanks HONEY!! She loved her presents!! She now is all EXCITED about silly bandz... as now she has some from Nate and you!!! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
