Catching my breath.............

OK, I need to take a breath and catch up here....

First of all....my class..enough sneak peeks, the details are ready.



The Queen of Today
@ Cool Scrapbook Stuff
Sunday, April 26th
1pm-4pm
$43



another peek....(yes, I KNOW that I use these photos a lot...but I can't help it..they are just some of my favorite photos..that's the nice thing about mini's...you can use odds and ends or use your favorite photos in different books!)



There are kits available, they come with a CD with all the instructions and "how to" photos. I do not sell the kits personally, you need to contact Cool Scrapbook Stuff for them. She will ship them also.

NEXT-

I had the BEST time at Christine's retreat house....seriously, I laughed so hard I thought I might make a puddle on the beautiful wood floors....
I went with Gabrielle (who is a hoot and a pretty darn good mini album maker), Stacy (as sweet as can be and shares my love of old buttons and lace...and a darn beautiful scrapper, she's on the DT for Graphic 45 and now A Million Memories) and Michelle Quinn (gave me my first DT position!), the owner of AMM.

Christine's retreat house is just gorgeous.......every little detail was perfect!! The beds were even SUPER comfy...not that I got much sleep! I would go back every weekend if I could! She was a gracious host and a wonderful friend! She's also super talented...you can check out her blog HERE !

I got a long overdue project done for Chloe's (Michelle's daughter) room...a banner that I had saved the paper to make it with for about 3 years....it's a lavender and I used the Making Memories crackle/cabbage rose paper from forever ago (it's not even on their site anymore)...but it's a timeless paper so totally not out of style! I also finished a layout, a PP Blog Hop project, a MR blog project and another Pink Paislee altered project...I'll share all of them later, don't worry!

Ok, off to work on my Pink Paislee post for the morning!

I still need to take pics of the beautiful banner. Chloe has been in the hospital since Monday so I haven't been able to do it. She loves it though. Actually I should bring it to the hospital to dress up her room! Yep! Think I will do that!

This book is absolutely adorable... I ♥ it!

I am captivated, though, by your "apology" work I just saw on Creative Therapy. Such raw emotion... that I could feel just reading it. I'm sure that you'll inspire many to get their words & thoughts onto paper & hope this has been just a tiny bit therapeutic for you. I'm sure it is a heart-wrenching situation to be in... to say the least. Many hugs & prayers for strength & perserverence... :-)
