Goodbye, old friend

Okay, I've been playing on the computer this morning and realized the announcement was made, Scenic Route is closing. I expected it to happen when they didn't put out a new relese at summer CHA. Scenic Route Blog But it's still sad when you see a company that you know and love close their doors.

Also, I had heard that Becky was leaving CK and finally read her blog postings about that topic as well. It looks like she will still be active in the scrapbooking community, just not in an official capacity with CK. I was just thinking yesterday that maybe I would pick up that subscription again, now I'm not so sure.

Well, I guess I should get ready for church. It's also my day in pre-school room for the 11:30 service. If you haven't spent an hour or so in a room with 20-25 three and four year olds, you may not be able to understand the mix of emotions that comes with this duty. They are beautiful, loving kids. They make you laugh, cray and some days want to pull your hair out. I'm hoping it's a day filled with lots of love and laughter!

Happy Halloween

It's almost October and Ines was touting this cool sight where you could give your blog a face lift so I thought I'd give it a try. It's the Cutest Blog, and you can find it here: http://

Now, I just need to remember to change it in November. But for now, happy halloween!

Get to school early on Wed.

I know, it's been FOREVER since I updated my blog. Somehow, life just happens and blog posts don't. But it's been a good day and there are some things that I thought were worth sharing.

First, if you have school age kids, get up and get to school a little early tomorrow, typically you want to be there 30 minutes before the bell rings. WHY you ask? It's "Meet You At The Pole" day. All across the country, students and those who care for and about them will gather around the flag pole for a time of prayer for our schools. Think about the ripple effect that could happen because Christ followers gatherered together in a show of unity, support and PRAYER for our schools.

So, on to what else is happening in my life. It's been a busy fall and I can't believe that October is almost here. YIKES! The kids are doing well in school and Rick and I are keeping busy.

But I know you are really wondering if I'm doing any scrapping these days. The answer is yes. The anniversary crop at Dee's was a great event with Vicki Boutin. It's amazing how many techniques she can cram in one class and that's right up my alley. I'm still designing for Dee's store so that keeps me creating and I've taken on some card challenges lately.

After I finished up my volunteer time at the kids school, I headed to the store for a few hours today. Rebecca , Ines and Renee have been doing sketch challenges the last couple weeks so I joined in. Today's sketch was from Creative Scrappers. You can see it here:
The added bonus was I used the sketch and knocked out my Cheap Date LO for the store this week. BONUS!!! But that meant I had to leave it and since I didn't take my camera with me, you'll have to wait to see my work.

Hope all is well with my friends and family scattered across this great nation. Remember, I'll meet you at the pole in the morning. God Bless!
