Here are the first two pages I did for the album I'm working on for my son's travels this past summer. I was inspired by the Mosaic Momments by Tami Potter!! Check out her new book and you will be hooked!!
Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest, but about who came and never left your side.

Our school had a Crop fundraiser for the yearbook. It was a lot of fun! Jenny, our yearbook advisior, did a great job organizing it and providing us with delicious snacks! Thanks Jenny!!! Our local Foodland, donated a veggie tray and dip. I think it was the best fresh veggies I have tasted in a long time. Thanks Foodland. We had a blast with family, friends, and co-workers!! I was pleased to see that our dear friend Ellen decided to come. It was her first crop and hopefully we didn't scare her away from future ones. As usual, our table was the noisiest!! Can't wait to do it again!

I have been following Monique Griffith through her ordeal with Stage 3 breast cancer. She has now finished her treatments and shows no sign of further disease! Praise the Lord! She is an awesome inspiration to many of us and I'm so thankful she willingly shared her journey with us. What an awesome person! Check out her blog, Monique Griffith Designs to see her creativity at work. She has recently redesigned it too. What a transformation!!
She had her first Ustream since kicking cancer in the butt and it was awesome! She had tons of us supporting her and enjoying ourselves. Thanks, Monique. The chat room was moving so quickly it made you dizzy. :) She gave out some fantastic prizes. I was one of those lucky ones that won!!! It was a stamp set donated by MyPinkStamper. Robyn is such a generous person. Don't forget to check her blog out, too. I'm so thankful for all my online friends. Thanks Monique!!!!

This is a birthday card for my daughter. Her 26th birthday is this week. Happy Birthday, Abby!! I was challenged to use some embossing on a card. So I used two embossing folders. Yes, two... I seldom use one. :) The base card has the dotted swiss on it and the green part I used a SU exclusive one called Floral Bouquet. I also used a SU stamp. It looks like it is washed out here but it actually has stickles on it. It looks so much better in reality. The ribbon is not pink (she hates pink) but it really a beige color. I used a Frisker border punch on the edge too. The butterflies are really cool. They have clear wings and are 3D and made my DCWV. They are about three layers, too. Inside I stamped a message and included her name. I have had her name stamp since she was a little girl and this is the first time I've used it. Forgot to mention that the added gems to the center of the flowers.

This is my scrapping area. Many of my online friends, sisters, and sister in laws have asked to see it. Its not actually called a room because the staircase is in this room although it has a door to close off the other rooms. Its not big at all and I've tried to utilize the space as much as possible. The bad part is there is a gun cabinet in here taking up a lot of space but there is no other room to put it in. I really wish I had that space for more work area. Oh well... Can't have a perfect space.
