Although I am still not 100% better,this past Saturday I went to a crop at our local scrapbook store. Sharon and I had planned this trip many months ago. The group we teach each month had never been to a crop, so we thought it was time. Mind you, our local store is a 1 1/2 hour drive away! Two hours into it, I was starting to feel a little dizzy and sick, and was thinking "I wish I was home laying on the couch". Not long after that, Patti, the store owner came out with  lunch, and that made me feel a little better. She had a delicious chicken salad, fresh rolls, carrots and dip, fresh strawberries and cantalope, potato chips, pickles, etc. And for dessert there were yummy homemade cupcakes with a scratch made chocolate icing.
I had planned to prepare what I was going to work on the week before, but then I got sick. So the nite before, I literally grabbed my photo holder and my tool bag, and off I went. Luckily, the store has some great transparencies you can buy, and even some kits to help you along.
The page Im going to show you was done with a transparency. It makes doing a page so simple. It is a photo of TT from about 2 winters ago. We had just gotten off the plane from a visit up to New York to see Nana and Pop for Christmas.

I think it came out good. I love that photo of her, and her little attitude!

Good news!!! My new camera is finally here and Im learning to use it!!! Bad news- I have been sick the last 3 or 4 days with a mini flu? I say that because I had the flu shot, and I've also had the flu in the past. And although I'm felling very crappy, its not as bad as the time I had the full blown flu. So I am still glad I got the shot.
Anyhow, this is my first day back on my computer, and I need to show you what my sweet friend Sharon made me. She is always so thoughtful, and when she heard I was under the weather, whipped up an adorable little get well package and card. She also included a bride magazine for TT to look at. Thank you Miss Sharon!
With out furthur ado, here is what I got.

Isnt this just adorable?? It made me feel  better for sure. In my semi-dizzy state, I forgot to take pictures of the inside of the card. When the card opens, there is a little 3-D pop up box of tissues. How cute is that?? And my table looks like the card- tissues scattered everywhere.

I must show you one more thing- my adorable nurse!!! She has stayed by my side keeping a close (and you can see just how close) eye on me this whole week. Thanks Berklee!!!

A New Beginning!!!

I would like to wish all of my readers a happy and healthy New Year- a year full of bright starts and new promises. As I look back on 2011, I am very grateful for all I have and for where the future leads me. I so love being a voice of hope for the babies with Down Syndrome who have no Mama to call their own. I will continue to advocate for them, and for all people with special needs who deserve every single opportunity and chance that we all have and often take for granted. God has truly blessed me in opening my eyes and heart to their plight and I will try to serve Him well.
Along with that, I have the resolutions everyone has, get in shape, save money?, and my biggie- try not to procrastinate so much~
May my family and yours, be blessed with good health and much happiness in 2012.
My camera should be arriving this week, so I will be back to posting  craft photos really soon- promise!
