In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month Leslie created this layout. If any of you know Leslie, you know she is an "over achiever". She hand stitched every heart shaped yo-yo in these kits. Her mom Mom (Helen) made the Pink Breast Cancer Ribbons. She has made these ribbons to make earrings, and to string onto a bookmark. She makes items for the Women's Atrium at Houston NW, and has for years. She makes drainage pouches, bookmarks, ribbons, wraps, journals, pillows, pillowcases, tote bags, and a number of other items. So you can see the apple didn't fall far from the tree. Thank you Helen and Leslie for this beautiful page.
To you who are reading this and have been effected by breast cancer our prayers are with you and your loved ones. I know this journey is hard. Fight like a girl! We are on your side!
Stay Savvy . . . Scrap often!

Following in his older sister's foot steps, this sweet baby boy comes to join us 22 days early. As you know I was so looking forward to being there and helping with Tori. I guess it wasn't meant to be. They have some great friends that were there for them and I will still join them in a few days to meet this young man. I loved this picture. It brought tears to my eyes. I was flooded with the memories of when each one of my boys was placed in my arms for the first time.

Getting caught up. After the Sampler I had to jump right into designing and kitting Lickety Slip. Most of you have met Alec my handy helper. He jumped up to the task to start designing my weekly layout. It seems I over looked that it was my turn. I loved his use of the colors and the title he choice. I know it will be a great home for the pictures of my grand kids trick-or treating this year.
Thanks Alec for your help and thank you all for your patients.
