This is a picture that Zander took of us at the zoo. It not very often we have our picture taken together. So this is my reminder to stop and smell the flowers more often. Time flies and you can't go backwards. This is a lesson I had to learn the hard way. No matter how hard you try to go back and makes things right it just doesn't work. Just make each day count.

Ok...let me just say first off...I am NOT, repeat not, a girly girl. So this was very hard for me to work with! LOL But this picture was perfect. Don'tcha think! The kit is super duper cute and frenchy feeling. I know you will love to use for your own girly girls.
Available at Faithsisters, PolkadotPotato, GottaPixel, and SunshineStudio.

Amy Sumrall awarded me this special little treat! She's so stinking awesome I can't even being to tell you. I am joining forces with her little Creative Team on July 26th. As if I haven't already been pimpin' her designs already. But now it will be official.
The rules of the award are:
1. The winner can put the logo on her blog. 2. Link the person you received your award from. 3. Nominate at least 7 other blogs. 4. Put links of those blogs on yours. 5. Leave a message on the blogs of the girls you’ve nominated
MY SEVEN ARE: (in no particular order)
1. Kristin Aagard: I met Kristin during the scraporchard SYTYCD contest. She made all the way to the last round but had to drop out due to family issues. I am sure she had the goods to win a spot. But I just keep downloading all her freebies and then she asked me help her start up her CT. So I said SURE! She is selling at PlainDigitalWrapper right now. Go check her out.
2. Shelley Moore: Long time friend DirectSales Buddy. We have known each other thru several company folding and yet we still come out on top. She is just starting to dabble in designing. She is feeding me with templates currently! WAHOO!
3. Shell Mackay: My most favorite KIWI EVER! ok...so she's the only KIWI I know but who's counting. SHE ROCKS MY WORLD. She has the best accent and sense of humor to match it. She's raw. Which is a great thing. She keeps it straight and to the point with so much love you can smell it. I adore this woman.
4. Wendy Myers: My favorite Secret Sister! LOL I got to know Wendy, again, thru a failed business adventure. But she is so sweet and honest. She's always happy and so beautiful. She is very crafty and comes from a very crafty home. Her sister is just a talented.
5. Sonja R.: Another extremely talented Business Friend. She got the gift of talent for sure. She is a born leader. Her DH is away on business in Africa and she continues to run the home just as is he was right there beside her. I admire her so.
6. Lori: Lori's templates really make me smile. I love that she offers them up as freebie. She is very giving and sweet.
7. Summer Simmons: I have admired her designs since the first day I saw them over at PolkaDotPotato. I have framed her papers and have them hanging above my bed. It's art! It's so much more than just scrapbooking paper. And she can sew too! You can find her work at SugarGiggles too!Crafty crafty crafty!
So that's my list of 7. Thanks for thinking of me Amy Sumrall. And now go make someone else's day!

So I will be busy with comforting him for awhile. If I could be so bold as to ask....would it be ok if I asked a couple of you to send him a little get well card. He asked me just a few minutes ago when he will get his first Birthday and Chicken Pox cards in the mail. Yep...his Birthday is next saturday and now he has this problem!! haha I said...well, I don't know. No one really knows that you are sick yet. So if you need my mailing address...shoot me an email.

ETA: this is my very best friend in the whole wide world. She and I went to Dental Hygiene school together and have been friends since 1990. But we now live about 3 hours away and only see each other about once a year. Last year we went to cancun together and had the time of our lives. Heaven- just hanging out with your BFF and no kids or hubbys around! Well, I am missing her terribly right now and really wish I could see her in person. So this was the next best thing...a layout of us!

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE....You know I would NEVER just ask this unless it was really really important...
ETA: Thank you for the well wishes and prayers. I felt the love and I am able to look things in a different light today because of it. I know when I need anything who to turn too. My cyber friends are #1 in my 'I need help' book. Karma is B* and everything that comes around goes around. All parties involved will get what they deserve one day. Now I need to continue to support my brother and his son to the best of my abilities and move forward. THANK YOU AGAIN for being there for me when I needed you the most.

The boys loved playing on this spinning saucer at the park.
This kit is called A midsummer night's dream. This are also these totally cool little pixie's/fairies that go with it too. And some pixie dust! Too cute! Go peek! The photo is from a wedding I shot last summer. They were a totally beautiful couple. I hope they are doing well.

Yep... a tree fell on my Mom's house. So we had to help with this issue instead. Lovely Michigan Storm whipped through Wednesday night and my poor brother was home alone when this thing hit. I can't even imagine the sound this must have made. They are coming back on Tuesday to remove it. Yep...Tuesday. I can't even believe the think it's ok to leave this like this for that long but what can we do? Let's just pray there is no major structural damage. But most importantly, no one was hurt.

I will be HERE tonight and HERE for the day.
Either one will provide excellent photo opps! So all of my designer friends...get busy...Miss Rachel needs a new kit to play with!! heehee
