It's been a while since I blogged. I have to admit I have been feeling down. I always get down this time of year. I remember my Mom and how much I miss her and get real down. Then I remember that I have to go on and be stronge for my kids and start to get going. So the holidays are coming and boy, I am getting excited about them.

I want to share that Rowynn was published in the school paper. She did a outstanding article about Thanksgiving. Liam received A-B Honor Roll. and Kaitlyn is getting into the follow of things.
I have to share a fun story with all of you. Today on my way to school (dropping off the kids) I saw a lovely bunch of ladies on the golf course -- they were seniors. Dressed in matching outfits I thought how cool a group thing. Well, on the way back I was stopped by one of the ladies. She asked if I wouldn't mind taking a picture or two of them. It was a special day for one of them it was Helen's 80th birthday. Her son had special shirts made for them that read - The Golf Club Girls. They all met when they work at a golf course when they were young girls and stayed friends throughout the years.
I agreed to take the pictures and wish Helen a happy birthday. She told me that she picked me from all the other moms going by because she noticed my scrapbook t-shirt and knew I would appreciate a good picture. Helen is right on that one. I think how wonderful to celebrate your 80th birthday and still be so close with all your friends. Amazing!
I have to say I too have some wonderful friends. Cherrie -- is amazing she checked up on me just to see how I was doing during my past few days away from the computer. Nikki -- also checked up on me to be sure I was doing well. Rebbeca -- Lead Fiskateer herself sent me a little packed just because she was thinking of me and wanted to say hello. Amazing to have such wonderful people in my life that care.
Ok now let me share some work with you. Here is the Cell Phone Mini album I made that was published by Scrapbook News and Review.
Later I'll posted some of the layouts I did for Scrapbook Challenges Design Team.

A Little Treat Holder

I made this little treat holder today. I think I'm going to make a few more to give away. This weekend I'm having a little get together. I think this little treat holder would be a nice touch.

Just Sharing...

I just wanted to share some of the things I've been doing. I was given a mission on the Fiskateers - I am part of the FCIA by Lead Fiskateer Angela Daniels. My mission was called Boo. In this mission you had to leave some Halloween goodies on a neighbors door along with a sign that reads BOO! and a cute poem.

I had my kids do the dropping off - Well, they really wanted to do it. We hit three different nieghborhoods. For the neighbors that didn't do anyscrapbooking or crafting I created some cute mini albums alon with some intructions. I know that they are picture takers.

Mini album covers & a view of the inside. They all have removable tags for more pictures and journaling. All paper except Cardstock (black & orange) are Cloud 9.

Also as part of the Scrapbook Challenge DT. I had to do a challenge this week. I do one one called "File it" under C for challenge. You have to use a file folder in a layout or project. I made this mini album using a file folder. I used some Cloud 9 paper for this too. But from a prize I won from Lead Fiskateer Kelly Jo.
File folder album cover & the view from the inside. I hope to fill this with some fun pictures this weekend . We're having a small Halloween party.
I hope you are inspired to do your own version of Mission Boo!
I wanted to share that my Mini Cell Phone Album has been published in Scrapbook News and Review E-zine. I am so excited about it. Go over to the site and check it out!

What a Morning...

This morning my youngest DD Rowynn- along with about ten other students where honored at school. They received awards for achievement in academics. She received another award for being the top in the state in the FCAT (this is a state standard test). After we (DH & me) were asked by the counselor to stay a minute and she told us about the Baccalaureate Program that they (the school & county) want Rowynn to go into. I feel that it's the best program for Rowynn. She is already doing a Duke University Program. I am very proud of Rowynn. She has a Beautiful mind. Best of all she has a Beautiful heart.

Now, As for me I have to admit I went a bit camera crazy. I have now upload all those pictures and pick a few of my favorites and make her a layout.

My classes at the Collins Group trade show turned out great. Everyone finished their mini albums. They loved them. Then later in the evening I was the assistant to the Certified Fiskars Demo class. It was a large class all store owners. It was a fun class.

Then I got home to my family ad we did a lot of fun family stuff over the weekend. This week I have to a LO posted for the Scrapbook Challenge DT. I have to come up with a challenge for later this month.

I'll post the one I did for this week a bit later. I've been asked to make some fiskafairies. I'm also done with those. I have a few more classes to teach this month which is good.

We have to start decorating the outside of the house for Halloween which we love to do. We were going to do it over the weekend but, since I was teaching that was postponed to this weekend.
