WOW, the month got away from me

How on earth did the month of April slip by so fast? I guess it has been full of work, my Hospital-wide project and presentation, Organ Donor Awareness Month (and I am a transplant coordinator), and multiple business that is being the mother of 2 very active teenagers.

Before the end of the month, I wanted to share my DT layouts from Scrap Attack Scrapbooking.

I was so fortunate to get to work with the paper line from Mark's Paper Company. The line is called "August Indian Summer" and it is amazing. The paper is double sided and has a 3D look of texture, along the lines of a canvas feel to it. The colors are luscious and just right up my alley! Check them out.

Oh, and be sure to check out National Scrapbook Day on May 2, 2009. I am heading over to a crop at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking!
Thanks for looking!

Happy Good Friday, Everyone

Well Today is Good Friday...the only day in the Catholic religion where Mass is not celebrated. IT is a very somber day. DD and I are going to church tonight though...they will read the Passion and clear the alter and that is very somber and eye opening to the sacrifice that Jesus made for our sins all those years ago.

I confess to not being a very good Catholic for many years, but recently, I feel the need to return and make myself a better we are going to church tonight, as I went last week and we will go again Sunday and hopefully every other one after that. I need the strength and peace that I get from going to church. Please do not judge me for my recitence in the past about church but I believe that God will take me back after straying away for awhile. I will just work harder to become more like him.

SO for anyone that read this, please may the peace and strength be with you on this beautiful day in April, on the eve of the sacrifice that Jesus made for all mankind, with his life for our sins. God Bless and Take Care. Love and hugs. Lara

Happy April 1st!

Well it is April 1st today. I would like to say spring has sprung but it is cold, dreary, snowing/sleeting...and did I mention cold? It is Minnesota, ya know! But nevertheless, it is springtime. I noticed the buds coming out slightly on the trees outside my craft room. I would like to share a couple layouts I did this past week. The colors are pretty and very spring-like.

I am on vacation this week. Doing some spring cleaning and organizing. I love that. My kids are on spring break too and eventhough they do not need supervision, I took this week off to hang with them...and they in turn, are helping me out around the house a bit. No, I am not being a mean mom and making them work the whole weekend, but just enough to help me out. Have a great April 1st! Love and hugs! Lara
