A Plea for Help...

Hi everyone. I have a favor to ask of you and it will only take a minute of your time. I have a sweet friend, Teresa, who's 8 year old, Emma, is suffering from a fatal disease called Fanconi Anemia. What I am asking you to do will help her and so many others who have this disease. All I am asking is for you to go to this Facebook page and cast a vote for The FA Research Fund Inc.

This is Emma. She has touched my heart so deeply. I want to do everything I can to help. And if you need any more convincing, please read my friend, Teresa's, story that she shared here on her blog. There is nothing more heartbreaking than for a parent to watch helplessly as their child struggles for their life. And this little one has been through so much in her short little life. They are not asking for ANY money, just your vote.

- You’ll need to “Like” Chase Community Giving (the company that is donating all the money to the charities – awesome group!).
- Then cast your vote for us.  You can only vote one time.  And no money donations can be accepted through them, so no worries about that!
- If you feel comfortable doing it, I’d love it if you could pass the link on to your family & friends!  The more votes the better! 


Thank you SO much for your help and support! God bless you all!

Show 'N Tell

Hello! Happy Friday to you!! The last 2 days here have been absolutely beautiful! The temps have been about 75 degrees, and I could really get used to this! I even broke out the shorts, flip-flops and, of course, my signature fuchsia pink toenail polish ;) That screams summer to me, so bring it on!!
My kids only have 2 weeks and 2 1/2 days of school left, so Summer has to be coming soon, right? I hope the weather continues to cooperate.

So, I have 2 pages I want to share today. I haven't been spending as much time scrapping as I would've liked to lately. I've even had the time to do it (shock!) But every time I get online I end up surfing all my favorite scrapping and crafty blogs and websites! I get so many ideas running through my head that I'd like to try that I end up overwhelming myself and then getting nothing done in the end! LOL Well I take  that back.. I did get these done ;)

This first page is another one done with a kit by Sherwood Studio. The kit is so beautiful! As soon as I saw it I knew exactly what photos I wanted to use. I had just noticed, a few days before, all the pretty little Blue Bonnets (I think that's what they are :P) growing up along side of our gravel driveway by the fence. I was impressed by their beauty and their persistence to grow even though there is no soft soil or grass there. Here is my page: Spring Flowers
Kit - 'Garden Fairies' by Sherwood Studio.
Template by Designs by Camijo.
Fonts - Berylium and Beautiful.

My second page was done for the "Show Me the Mini" challenge over at Gotta Pixel. As soon as I saw the beautiful little mini kit put together by Trixie Scraps, I knew I had to join in. And since it's May, the month of Mother's Day, the challenge was devoted to a page of our Mom's. So it was my pleasure to make this page for my Mom :) I hope she likes it too! Here's my page: My Mother
Kit - "My Lovely Mother" by Trixie Scraps (Gotta Pixel May Show Me The Mini Challenge)
Template by Marni Designs (Brownie Scraps May Template Challenge)
Font - Digs My Heart

I have one more new kit by Sherwood Studio that I need to work with. It's called "Catharsis" and you can find it at TDC. Take a look at it. It is absolutely gorgeous! And I can't wait to dig my digital fingers into it! :) 

So, I'll be back to share my page when I get it done. 
Thanks for visiting me again! I appreciate all the sweet comments I get from all my friends, whether Real Life friends or Computer friends. You all make me smile! :D Enjoy your weekend!

Alright, well I am very happy with my new bloggity! I hope you like it too! If you like the kit I used it is called "Blue Skies & Sunshine" by Sherwood Studio, and you can find it here. I LOVE this kit with it's fresh colors, reminds me of Springtime!
It also reminds me of baby boys. And thats why I used it for the first page I want to share with you. In case you haven't heard, Christopher's girlfriend had her baby on April 27th. He's a precious, tiny little guy and he stole my heart ;) Here is my first page for him:

Sherwood Studios is fairly new to me, but I fell in love with her stuff as soon as I saw it in my inbox in a Digichick newsletter. I just had to find out more about her, so I found her blog and fell even more in love! lol. I sent her a message asking about her CT (also sending her a link to my gallery and blog;)) And she liked what she saw and invited me to join! Yay!! I am SO excited! and can't wait to work with all her gorgeous kits!
Her newest kit is actually an iNSD Grab Bag. I had the pleasure of playing with it and here is my page:
Kit - 'iNDS Grab Bag' by Sherwood Studio.

Font - Teen.
Isn't he just a handsome guy? Yes, God has blessed me abundantly! And I LOVE being a MOM! 

Speaking of which, I wish you all the best Mother's Day ever! Call and wish your own Mom a great day as well. And have a wonderful weekend.

Under Construction

I figured it's time for a little cleaning and remodeling. So please bear with me as I try for something a little newer and fresher ;)

Ok, the only thing I'd still like to change (but don't know how) is to change the fonts. I want something cute, but nothing they offer by default is cute :( 
If you have any info or can point me in the right direction, please leave me a comment! Thanks! I appreciate it! :)
