Easter 2008

This one was so easy, I used Provo Craft stickers along the top and bottom.

At the Water Park

Here's one of Tyler when they went to the water park. The waves and drops of water are stickers I used. I added the eyelets and ribbon to make the pocket stronger since all the information from their hotel and the trip are inside the pocket.

Blog challenge # 17

Suzanne's challenge this week:
Where were you when something incredibly important happened on a worldy level? (i.e. the assassination of Kennedy, the destruction of the World Trade Centers, The Challenger explosion, etc.) Write about it.

I remember being at work the day the towers were attacked and we were in total shock. The first thing I wanted to do was call my kids. Not that I thought they were harm, I just needed to hear their voices. Once I heard their voices, it brought tears to my eyes. I can't even begin to explain all the emotions and thoughts going through my head but I still remember all the brave people who came forward and for awhile we were a United States again.

Blog challenge # 16

Suzanne's challenge this week:
Do you have pets? If so, how did they come to be furry family? Write about them and their personalities. If not, write about a past pet that touched your heart. Please include photos!

I can't remember a time that I haven't had pets. We have had cats, dogs, fish, rabbits, raccoons, pigs, cows, sheep, ducks and pheasants. Heidi and her friend thought that the fish needed to drink their milk to stay healthy so she pour her glass of milk into the fish tank, FYI, fish don't like milk. Heidi had a pet sheep that would follow her every where but didn't like Todd, so Twinkle toes had to be sold. We had a pet cow named Cutie that the kids used to ride, she became too tame to milk and had to be sold. No more cows ever became that good a pet again.

There were 3 dogs that really became my favorite pets over the years, Minga dog, the most beautiful collie and a protector of the kids; Mudd, who just never outgrew being a puppy and would let the kids dress him up and was just the most gentle of dogs and then my favorite; Spanky, she was my dog. I heard a scratch at 4 a.m. one morning, I opened the door and this little cocker walked in, jumped up on the sofa and decided this is home. She was my dog, no question about it, slept with me, either at the foot of my bed or right in the little nook by my belly, got up first thing with me and followed me around in the morning. A couple years ago, while I was in NC visiting my grandchildren, Spanky became very ill and Phil had to have her put to sleep. Hardest thing he has ever done. I still that miss that little girl and know that another dog will never replace her nor do I even want to try.

Making Candy

What fun we had making candy in Feb.

My Craft Table

For the most part it is finished, Phil has a couple more pieces of trim to buy but as far as I am concerned it is done and I am using it.

Since we have no flowers even near coming up and in fact very few flowers at all this year, I found this beautiful pictures of some tulips. Make sure you take some time to smell the flowers.

Challenge #15

Suzanne's Challenge #15--
Have you ever lost anything special? What was it? Did you ever find it?

I have thought and thought about this and I don't remember anything that I lost that was special to me. I guess that makes me a very lucky person.

I made the Guest DT Team

on Scrap Dango. How totally cool is that. We needed to do a conversational layout with our special friend. My special friend is no other than my special guy.

Not sure which month I get to work with the talented Design Team ladies but so excited that I will get to know them all a little better.

Blog challenge # 14

Boy Suzanne's challenge #14 brings back many memories:
April Fools! What memory does the word 'prank' stir up for you? Write about a time someone played a prank on you or you played a prank on someone else.

Okay kids, who shall I pick on, it's not like both of you haven't pulled enough tricks on me over the years. Short sheeting beds, vaseline all over door handles, scranwrap on the toilet seat, wiring up doors so when they were opened, all kinds of bells and lights went off, or the time you took my cigarettes and put loading explosives in them. This list could go on and on and you know there are days I would love to have you little and back in the house pulling those pranks.
