Great Crop!!

My beautiful daughter, Amy, organized a wonderful card making/scrapbooking crop that was held yesturday. We had a full house of scrappers and card makers. Great food provided by the Nu Xi chapter of Sigma Phi Gamma. We had the wonderful ladies, Mary and Annette, there from TaDa Creative Studios! We had awesome make and takes by Sue Freeman, Karen Schwochow and Catherine Galvin. Jen Czyzewski running our Cricut station. Angie Snyder from Close To My Heart and Deb Brighty from Stampin' Up were there. Great  grand door prizes donated by Holly Kolwalczk and Ed Packer. Hourly door prizes and a fabulous grand prize donated by my dear friend, Sherry Baas, of Bass Jct. Rubber Stamps. And best of all...all proceeds will benefit the Christmas Extravaganza program. 50 needy families from the Toledo are will receive food baskets with enough food for at least 10 meals and Christmas gifts! WAY TO GO, AMY! We love you beyond words and are so very proud of you!!

As We Remember

Today as we remember the victims, the families and friends of those lost, the brave policemen, firefighters and those in our armed forces, we pray that God will one day bring us peace. We pray that one day everyone will realize that we are all God's children. And may God bless America!

Please Vote for Whole Hearts Foundation!

Hi Everyone!

I hope you can all take time to vote for this project! It is really easy to do! Go to the below link, sign in (you can sign in with your facebook and its super easy and they DO NOT spam you!) or make an account and vote. You can also send a text to 73774 with the following message 107706

Also, If you drink Pepsi Products, you can use the Power Votes found on Pepsi products. However I am unsure of how to do this, since I drink would have to look online to see how this is done.

This is a foundation started by Matt Hammit, the lead singer for Sanctus Real (Really awesome Christian band based out of Toledo!!) after his son was born with "half a heart." Bowen (his son) is about 9 months old and has undergone and survived 2 open heart surgeries already. You can read the full story here:

Whole Hearts is currently number 25 and needs to be in the top 10 spots to get a chance at the money. If you can take the time to vote and even pass this along to help the organization that would be fantastic.

Thanks so much! :]

Dynamic Duo Blog Hop

A chance to win free products! Each day go to the following two blogs

Post comments to show participation. New inspiration will be posted daily. At the end of the 12 day hop, please go to each manufacturer's blog and post a comment telling them you favorite album style and favorite paper collection used in the samples shown during the hop. Your name will then be entered in a drawing to win both! Three winners will be picked. Good luck to everyone!

I chose to use the Bountiful Blooms collection from Tada Creative Studios with my Trunk Punky mini album from Punky Sprouts. I was so excited about working with these wonderful products, I even added a page to my mini album and created a page that flips out. This was the first time that I have worked with Little Blooms by Punky Sprouts, but it sure won't be the last! I really love the versatility of all of these products. With all the two-sided paper from Tada Creative Studios and the variety of page types provided by Punky Sprouts in their wonderful mini albums, creativity is endless!

Hope you enjoyed my mini, stop back soon!
