Happy Friday!

...with this Friday brings a busy weekend of FAMILY and SPORTS...tomorrow we will be doing the first of many ALS walks. My Father-in-Law was diagnosed with ALS also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease in January of this year...a lot of times unless you know someone who is fighting this terrible disease it goes unnoticed. ALS is a progressive, fatal, neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. There is no cure and the average life expectancy from time of diagnosis is 2 to 5 years...we are still trying to accept this diagnosis and do what we can for children's PeePaw...someone they love dearly...Stuart and I along with Ben, Camryn and Mason all will be walking the 3K "because we can!" ...and you can walk too "because you can!"

Unlike most's so much more then just an's time to be with family and friends... it's a time to make a true difference in the lives impacted by ALS. WE WILL WALK BECAUSE WE CAN! Help make a difference and join a walk today!'s also time to share a NEW Friday Sketch from over at Rochelle our guest sketch designer...Didn't she do an AMAZING job with her sketch? I LOVED it...and I LOVED how my LO turned out...I used photos from our "only" outing from the entire summer...'s CHALLENGE was to create a handmade flower on your layout.

Here's what I did...

I also used this sketch to make a card...I used papers by The Lucky 7 Factory. (Relax it's your day is a stamp by Unity Stamp Co.)

...thanks for stopping by :) And have a fabulous weekend!

...well it's Friday...

...and that means it's time to share a new sketch and LO...this time it's a sketch made by ME =)...over at Lets Capture These Sketches ...todays challenge was to use a Photo Collage instead of just a single Photo!
I decided to really change up this sketch...instead up using that enormous circle...I scaled it WAY DOWN...and added the small scalloped Spellbinder Die as a simple embellishment to my title...I think it was the perfect little touch to my LO. sure to stop by the LCTS BLOG and see what the other ladies came up with. Have a super weekend!

...a new school year has begun!

Ben was an ambassador this year, welcoming new students and their families to school so he needed to be to school EARLY on the 1st day...which meant I had 5 to 10 minutes to get pictures before heading out the door...needless to say I wasn't very happy with what we got is what it is!

Ben is in 5th grade this year...his last year of elementary school!

...Camryn headed off to 2nd grade...

...and Mason is now a BIG 1st grader! I am just in shock about that...he is just growing up so fast! are the cards I made for their teachers...

...everything is from Piggy Tales Academy: monthly kits delivery right to you!
