It is going to be a fun-filled day today! I am heading out to a Scrap Pink crop - what could be better than a whole day of scrapping AND raising money for breast cancer?
We have a lot of fun games and yummy food planned and it should be a great time.
I am scrapping today in honor of my brother-in-law's Mom (Gunna) who passed away from breast cancer and an old friend (Kym) from Victoria who is currently battling breast cancer as well. These two people show just how breast cancer can affect anyone - Gunna was a grandmother and Kym is younger than I am. When I read on Kym's facebook status that she was gearing up for chemotherapy, I was shocked. We typically think of cancer affecting older people...but unfortunately, cancer has no discriminations. So hopefully our crazy group of scrappers can raise some big money and make a difference today!

So we are in the middle of a very odd heatwave here...and the kids were just overheated today. We played in the backyard and funny enough, my delicate little flower of a daughter was the dirtiest munchkin of them all! She is so her mother's daughter! My mom loves to tell stories of me covered in some sort of grime/mud/dirt. I'm thinking this one will make a great layout!
I couldn't resist this one! I snuck up behind her when she wasn't looking!
And her traditional pose, head tilted to the side....she will make a great supermodel one day (she already has the attitude for it!)
I had to crop this one in order to get the full effect...there is a reason they call toes piggies don't ya think?!
See? I told you it was hard work getting this dirty! Now to wake her up and try to get some supper in her and soak her in the tub! I would post a pic of the tub afterwords but I think that may make even me feel a little nauseous!
Hope you are having a great week!

SOTW Sept 21-27 and a little update!

Okay I kind of fell off of the scrapping/blogging wagon....
Life just seemed to interfere with my social life......oh wait, I don't have one of those! I meant scrapping/blogging life!
School is finally getting us back into the routine of things, the online store is up and running, the job at the LSS is definitely keeping me busy and goes on!
I had a techniques/card class at the LSS tonight - a lot of fun and a good group of ladies! I really do enjoy teaching as it gets me out there trying new things. I really forgot how much I missed of the adult conversation part of a job! I love having a dayhome but it is nice to be able to talk to other adults without children interrupting me 540 times a minute!! My next class will be on October 27th and it will be on Glimmer Mist - if you are interested, please send me an email or leave me a message here and I can give you more details.
And now for the long lost sketch! The paper this week is Basic Grey's new Indian Summer line. I am head over heels for this paper - the colours and the patterns are simply gorgeous!!! Enjoy the sketch and have a fabulous week!!
