Happy National Scrapbook Day (eh, weekend!)

I hope you all had the opportunity to do something fun and creative this weekend in celebration of Nat'l Scrapbook Day. I know I did!

Yesterday, I spent the day scrapping with Ady and Damaris at our LSS. We had lots of fun and laughed a lot! I was tired from picking up my hubs at the airport at 4 am (looong story... don't you just love the airlines and their crazy rescheduling and cancelling of flights?!) and then I have had this pain in my arm, probably related to a pinched nerve, that my hubs likes to call "Scrapbook Arm." I don't think so! LOL!

Well, anyway, back to the fun stuff. I made a few LO's with my delicious April kit from The Scarlet Lime using some very pretty pics of my cousin's little ones and my grandma. I'll try to post some visuals for you soon... I also worked on a project for Making Memories that I have to turn in this coming week. I loved working with some of their new papers and embellies. Their entire line ROCKS!!!

I finished about 5 LO's, 4 of which I'm really happy with! You know there's always one late in the day that just doesn't turn out as you had hoped... LOL!

Anyway, now for some eye candy... Check out the new Cocoa Daisy kit that I'm getting this month. So soft and pretty, and perfect for Mother's Day. I love the vintage feel it has...



I also got my Scrapbook Designs Unlimited kit handed to me yesterday by my dear friend, Damaris, which is full of Heidi Swapp goodness and I cannot wait to PLAY with it. Whoohoo!!!



On a much more serious note, THANK YOU to all of you for your sweet messages and emails. Last week was a difficult one because my friend Jeanie's disease has truly affected me. She is a wonderful friend and she is going through a lot right now. I have been at the hospital with her a few nights this past week and she is slowly getting better, but she still has no feeling on the right side, particularly her leg and arm. I hope and pray that she heels through therapy, but most importantly, I pray that God gives her the strength to fight this and have a positive outlook on her life even though it seems tough right now.

Hugs to all!
