Happy Halloween

I love this ad that was put out by my church. It reminds me of Halloween. For me Halloween is all about family time and make-believe. Often we would have family themed costumes which would draw us closer both in preparation time and in deliverance as we came into character. I love how the whole neighborhood opens their doors. It didn’t matter if I was the one staying home to greet the neighbors or if I was walking the street, it always warmed my heart. Today my kids are mostly grown and we don’t walk the street anymore but we still will have our family time. This Halloween will all stay home cuddled in our comfortable spots having our own “Bones” marathon and still we will eagerly press pause to greet our neighborhood goblins. I hope you all have a save Halloween. May you make this day a great family day. Families are forever and fun memories create stronger ties!

Happy haunting my fellow scrapp’n gals

Weekly Layout!

This month is a special one for me. I have had several people close to me take on the battle of breast cancer. I held my mom's hand through her struggle and I know what a scary thing the battle can be. To all who have or are fighting this battle our thoughts prayers are with you. This week's layout was designed by Leslie. She is a very talented person on my design team and if you know her, you will know she has your best interests at heart. She lovingly designed this layout with my mom in mind. Well my mom is out of town and I don't have too many pictures she would approve of. I chose to put another amazing person on Leslie's page, my sister Lynnette. Her battle started 5 years ago this month and she is so grateful to be here enjoying and celebrating life. I love you Lynnette!

Weekly Layout!

Happy Monday my good friends!

This Weeks layout was designed by my mom, Millie Jones. She used the new Bo-bunny line "whoo-ligans". I loved Halloween when my boys were little. It was fun watching them pull out the costume box and play. They would try on old costumes to discover how much they grew. There would be some mix=matching of costume parts to create new costumes and then there would always be shopping and creating to add to the box. All these memories are best kept in a scrapbook. This layout would be great for all those moments with two pockets and many tags.

Never a dull moment!

This week has been a full of hard work, loving support of friends and family, scrapping, teaching and bonding with family and fellow paper crafters. My heart is full of gratitude for a loving husband who allows me to visit with our children and granddaughter, parents who work so hard to help me fulfill my dreams, supportive friends who help kit, create weekly layouts and did everything in their power to have a successful P.J. Crop while I was in Indy and for a best friend who spends her spare time typing instructions, searching the Internet for much needed items, and giving the moral support needed to keep me going when I feel discouraged. I love you all and I thank you! ((((hug)))

Tuesday I taught my Razzill Dazzill Bazzill Class at Scrapp'n Savvy. We did three interactive pages to prepare for the upcoming holiday season.

For Halloween we did a spinner, imagine four adorable expression showing in the spider window as you spin to each picture.

You can express you deepest thoughts of gratitude on the tags that are tucked away in the pockets of this fall page.

Adding all those special Christmas pictures to this waterfall page will be fun. You can't have too many Christmas pictures! So many magical moments happen at Christmas

Wednesday morning bright and early I headed to Indy to play with Miss Mae, my adorable granddaughter. She was a little shy when we saw each other but shortly after arriving home she showed me her book collection in a matter of minutes. Not because she has very few books but because my gifted "Tori-Bear" is a speed reader! LOL It was so fun watching her flip through each picture book.

It was good to graduate from watching her to holding her as she shared her favorite books.

Thursday Rachel, Tori and I headed to Camp Camby for a weekend of scrapbooking and a little teaching. I was excited to hold my Razzill Dazzill Bazzill class with my Indy friends and to help Rachel work on a scrapbook for Tori. Tori turned out to be the BEST helper

Rachel and I sat across from the most remarkable young woman. She is a nurse who was struck by an illness that left her without the use of her legs. I am so glad I met Julie, she was such an inspiration to me. She is so positive and out going. I believe there is nothing that girl can't do. She plays tennis, water ski, ice hockey, volunteers several hours with Make A Wish. She reminded me of all the blessing we have in our life and that there is always something to be glad about. Thanks Julie for all the laughs and sharing your stories. Not such a great picture. I took it on accident while I was trying to turn off the camera but will be forever grateful that I have it

Two Sisters own the store Just a Little Bit Moore and they host this crop twice a year. There isn't a moment (96 hours) of this crop that you don't see them. That is one long work shift. You can tell they have a passion for scrapbooking and a deep love for their customers. Suzie even made sure she personally granted "many blessing" to each cropper. Tori included. . .

As a store owner I know how much work goes into an event like this and found it refreshing to see that they took a few moments to nap and rejuvenate themselves.

I love these ladies and I pray I will be able to run Scrapp'n Savvy the way they run their store. Going into Just a Little Bit Moore is like coming home. It is a happy place where you are greeted with a warm smile, loving heart, and a helping hand. Thanks girls for all you do! It was hard saying goodbye to the wonderful scrappers of Indy. I am looking forward to coming again. I hope some of my new friends will be brave enough to venture out to Texas and spend a weekend cropping with us at Scrapp'n Savvy.

I know my hardest good bye will come tomorrow when I have to leave this part of my family. I will forever cherish this weekend. I love you Jared, Rachel and Tori!

I look forward to exploring many more things with Tori as she grows.

Each visit I make either to Arizona of Indiana I walk away with a full heart. I am so grateful both of my grandchildren have come to loving homes with fantastic parents!

Happy scrapp'n my friends
