It's going to be a SUPER Saturday!

We have a fun activity coming up next week at our church, and I am the lucky one that has had the honor of planning it! ;) It really has been fun to put it all together, but it really has been a lot of work, too! It is a most-of-the-day thing. We call is a Super Saturday, and the theme I chose for this years activity is "Home can be a Heaven on Earth." I'm anxious to see how it all turns out! We are having some workshops and service opportunities in the morning, then a lunch and some time for crafting after lunch!
These are the crafts that I made that the ladies can sign up to make:

What do you think? I thought they turned out pretty cute!
We are also offering the pictures that are cut and mounted on MDF and covered with a glaze so they look like tiles, but I didn't make that sample.
So anyway, if you don't see me around here much the next week, you'll know why!
I've got A LOT to do! :)

Fun Blog Challenge at My Mind's Eye!!

One of my all time FAVORITE scrapbooking manufacturers is My Mind's Eye. I have loved their stuff since I got back into scrapbooking about 6 years ago.

So I'm sure you can imagine my pure delight when I discovered that they have a blog (yea, I'm pretty slow, just figured that out!) AND they are having a sketch challenge AND the winner will get three complete lines of MME of their choice!!
Now I know I have never won anything scrapbook related and I know I am not likely to start now :) but you can bet I am giving it a try!
Wish me luck!

My not so baby girl :)

I keep trying to tell my Gracie-girl that she is still my baby, but all I get is "mom, me 'BID' girl!" and she raises her hand as high up as she can reach! Why do they insist on getting big so quick?!
Here are a couple of layouts of her that I have completed recently:
Supplies: Patterned Papers, circle alphas (Jenni Bowlin), Cardstock, flower rub-on (CTMH), white foam alphas (American Crafts), chipboard flower (Paper Studio), journaling spot (Jillibean Soup).
Supplies: Patterned Papers (My Mind's Eye), Scalloped Cardstock (Bazzill), Green and white CS, big pink flowers, rub-on border, lace trim, line stamp and buttons (CTMH), small pink flowers (Prima), white and brown alphas (American Crafts), brad (Oriental Trading Co.), rub-on quote (Basic Grey).

I guess since Grace won't be my baby anymore, I will have to settle for these cute, wrinkly, brand new baby pictures! :)

Have a good one!
