Back to normal

Last week was a bit hectic. Normally I only work at the preschool three days a week but was asked to cover for another teacher on my days off. To say I am not used to that schedule is an understatement! I am back to my regular schedule this week and boy I am glad!

We are in the midst of flag football season around here. Our team is doing great! We are 2-1 and the boys are learning and more importantly having fun. I wish I had some pics to share but I suck at taking sports photos so most of them didn't turn out. I will try again next Saturday!

Wanted to share a layout that I did a while ago and never got to post. It is about my two BFF's Nicole and Erika. I was thrilled when it was requested my Memory Makers for their idea book, Fabulous Friendships. I love that stamp and that American Crafts paper that the flowers are cut from it one of my all time favs!

Also, I wanted to thank everyone for their kind words and prayers for both of my friend's families. It means so much. Have a great week!

It's been a rough week.

Yesterday, a good friend was laid to rest. I got to know Aleida Franklin through Studio Calico and All Moments Remembered message boards. She was beautiful, encouraging and always knew how to make you smile. Last Friday on her way to work she died in a fatal car crash. She leaves behind a husband and two small children. My heart aches for them but I know that she is in heaven with God scrappin' to the music.

Last Sunday, NE Ohio was experiencing the remnants of Hurricane Ike and took the life of my friends little boy. He was riding his bike, on his way home and a branch of a tree in front of his house fell on him. He was 12. I just don't know how they can bear this?

Please, pray for these families. They need it so much. And one more thing, please tell your loved ones just how much you love them everyday. You just never know.

Happy Wednesday!

It is back to work for me at the preschool. I am really loving it and the kids so much! I also like having a four day weekend.

Just wanted to share some Chatterbox projects made with mostly Eclectique. I love this fresh and funky line! This is a layout of Connor. Just love that toothless smile.

This is a mini I made of Zachary. It is 10 things about him at 10 years old. If you would like to see the all the pages you can check it out here.

Make sure to check out Heather's blog today. She is supposed to reveal another surprise!

We sure have been getting some relief from last weeks heatwave. It is feeling like fall is just around the corner. Have a great day!

I am hosting from 5pm-7pm and I would love it if you joined us!

Well I made it through the first week of preschool! The children in my class are wonderful! So sweet and smart! I love working with kids this age. They are too young to know how to talk back. LOL!
