Hi, It's me...

Okay, so I know it has been a while, but here I am! I am hating this computer right now, so this may have to be a little short. My DH uploaded a "new" version of some computer program, and I have to say... I HATE IT! He has had to go back on and change it several times. It is totally messing with me! Okay, rant over!

So here is what I have been working on in the scrappy sense. I made this card for my in-laws, because they are absolutely amazing to us. My mother and father in laws come to my rescue when ever I ask them to, even sometimes when I don't ask. They just seem to know when I need a break. This past week, my sweet MIL called me up and asked if I wanted to go to a crop on Friday, because she thought I had been working so much. How does she know that I needed that? I don't know, but she did. So anyway, I made this card for them.

This card was like the ones that Jennifer McGuire has on her blog. I loved the design, so I lifted it. So stinking cute. I love her stuff. I would have to say that I am totally addicted to her right now!

Here is the third layout for the class that I teach at Atelier. It is all about Family. I love it when I get to use flowers and glitter on pages that have my boys in them too. The other two layouts are on the previous entry.
So, some very sad news has come my way. A extremely talented and sweet gal that I "know" through Studio Calico has passed. A horrible and devastating accident has taken her from us all too soon. Miss Aleida Franklin. . . You will be missed. . .

So, no matter how mad you are with your loved ones, no matter how pushed you are for time, no matter how cheesy they think you are. . . hug them tight and tell them you love them. Life is so precious and fragile. . . it is a gift that can be taken from us at any minute.

Thanks for stopping by.

Your work is absolutely beautiful!

And I too am stunned and saddened by the loss of Aleida, and my heart hurts for her family - life is too precious to take for granted.
