This layout is about his First Communion/Confirmation. I just love how this page turned out. I love the Prima stars and the FP jounralling sheets. It makes me happy. What scrapping is truly about. :)
Brendan is going for his surgery tomorrow - so if you pray, please say a few words for him. Or just keep him in your thoughts. We're all a little antsy but I know he's going to be okay. :)
Enjoy the rest of your Thursday....xoxo

Hop on over to The Paper Passion and say hello. I've seen some 'old' friends and met up with some new ones too.
And the best part - Rosa the owner was super quick and helpful in replying to my email about the store. I'm looking forward to picking up my first order. Yes ladies! Free local pick-up!
Ottawa so needs a store with great prices and hot products! (Yes..I'm excited).
For all the details about the new place come on over and say hi. Or send Rosa an email - she is very helpful and accomodating!

Here is my layout using today's sketch:
Supplies: Bazzill cardstock; Daisy Bucket pp/rubs; American Crafts thickers/chipboard/slick writer; SU punch; Making Memories brads; white signo pen; Creative Chaos journaling spot.
We had a lot of fun celebrating Earth Hour and everything to do with making our earth a 'greener' place to live is something that marks my childrens' generation. They are so focused on it (it's great!).
I'm out. Back soon....hopefully with layouts! :)

Go to the photos folder on your computer.
Go to the seventh folder of photos.
Go to the seventh photo.
Put the seventh photo on your blog along with a description.
Ironically, this is the picture that fits the bill:
This is a picture of Brendan from a while back. The irony comes from the fact that his surgery date has been scheduled....May 1st. Now I appreciate that it is day surgery and I wholeheartedly appreciate that there are parents who deal with far worse circumstances than Bman's trigger thumbs. But he's my boy....and I'm nervous and sad and wish I could fix his thumbs with the wave of my magical wand! (Not that I have one but you get the point...:) ). So keep this sweet boy in your thoughts and prayers on that day ok? I'm sure I'll ask again as the date gets closer.
I also wanted to mention that I'm currently designing for Allison Cope and So Sketchy! only. I have let go of my other committments and as we enter our busy season at work, this is refreshing. I'm looking forward to new possibilities in the future though. :)
