"Group Therapy

Now this is my kind of "Group Therapy"!

I went to a crop with Kim and Company to Holiday Inn in Waterville yesterday. They spent the night, with pool accommodations, hot tub and all around relaxation. I had originally planned on staying with them, until a little girl got all teary eyed because she couldn't come with Mommy! Sigh, since she has emotional issues, and has a hard time being anywhere without me, I conceded to a "day" of scrap booking. I will have other times I can go and enjoy "group therapy" with my scrap booking buddies!

The delight and happiness when I arrived home from both Destiny and Emily, was the best "homecoming" I have ever received! So I spent an hour listening to what they did and how they spent their day with Pop! I am so totally amazed at how quickly these daughters of mine are growing and maturing! Soon I will be able to bring my girls to the "group therapy" too!

Too all of you out there in the blogosphere, may you enjoy your families and also enjoy your friends! May you be blessed in all that you do.

Enough of my ramblings! Here are the cast of characters: Shannon and Sharon

Patsy (she went home last night too)


The HUGE roast beef sandwich we had for lunch!

Jane with a quarter of her sandwich! I told you they were HUGE!

Kim hiding behind her half sandwich.

And last but not least, Me with my sandwich quarter (Patsy is in the background)

Yes I was still in awe of the size of my half sandwich!

All in all, we had a great day! I had to re-do some of Lisa's thank you cards, because I didn't melt the embossing powder all the way. Parts of the thank in thank you rubbed off! Ok, truth be told, I had to re do MOST of the cards! Sigh, just glad I didn't send them to her the way they were!

Here is the sunset from my front door this evening. Beautiful.

I love the view from here. Away from city traffic. I never know what I will see out here. Last week there was 10 deer crossing the road to go in the field behind our vehicles. There have been as many as 20 turkeys in our yard at a time feasing on the crab apple tree as well.

I thought I would share a glimse of my world with you today.

May all your days be blessed, and your nights beautiful!

Inspiration from DCWV paper stack

Here are a few cards I made after Patsy gave me The Mariposa Stack.

What beautiful papers! If you love butterflies you will love this paper stack! Take a look at what I made.

I left it at Patsy's after I got it (less to haul back and forth), so I wouldn't be working on it at midnight! Well to say the least, I dreamt the cards I would make with it. Now I know I am not the only one that does that.

I made a few cards using a different techinque I will post on later.

I even made (5) 6x6 inch cards!

Let me know how you like them, and while you are at it, let me know what inspires you as well.

Have a blessed day!
