Charity - New Reach Out Section

Just want to let you all know that I am becoming involved in some reach out programs.  Click on the link in my menu bar at the top of the page for details on various programs.

Right now I am just involved in a program called Operation Write Home, sending blank handmade cards to our troops for them to write to their friends and family back home.

In my right side bar, at the top, is a link if you would like to make a donation to go towards shipping charges.  Or if you do not have time to make any cards for this cause you can donate towards supplies for others to make them.

May Challenge

Here is the scoop..  I am very late in posting and I apologize about this.  I was on vacation at the beginning of the month.  My son graduated from the Marine Corp Basic Training at Parris Island, SC Friday May 6.  I had a lot of work to get caught up on this week plus make my son a mini album to take with him to his combat training.  He leaves Monday.  I have been trying to spend some time with him because it could be a year before a see him again.

The above picture is me, my son Aaron and my bf Brian.

Anyhow..  here is the challenge for April...   lets honor of military and vets...  create a card or LO involving Memorial Day or some kind of military theme..  The winner will be chosen by 

I will be giving away a pack of my custom designed digital paper packs that you can use in digital scrapbooking or even print on your printer to use in your paper crafting projects.  The papers are high res images that are 8.5 x 11.  This is my swiss dot collection.

Now here are some examples from my design team for some inspiration.





The challenge will end at 11:59 PM on Memorial Day.  You can enter your link to your entry below.
