Best Mom

It is Saturday, folks, 
and Welcome!!

How was your week??
It was an emotional week for me of sorts!

My hubby's birthday was yesterday (Friday)
and on that date, 22nd, I remember the loss of
on of my favorite person s in the world. 

My Grandpa.

I remember that day, and it fills me with sadness.
but I steer my mind towards the good times, 
because that is what should be done.

And that did not help matters
knowing that we lost one of our
beloved musical geniuses, Prince, 
the Thursday before.
That was a shock!
I still can't get over it.
You never know, friends, you never know.


A new challenge is happening on

HIMCR #248 - Any Holiday! 
And this week's sponsor is:

The giveaway is $7 gift certificate to

The Design Team were given some
images to use for this week's challenge.

Here is what I created:

I made a card for Mother's Day, which is on a few weeks.

I used my new Ken Oliver Color Burst
powders (omg--such amazing fun!)
The papers are from an older
collection of Teresa Collins, "Spring Fling"
The sentiment is from Making Memories
Design Shoppe stickers.
Very simple, and quite fun!!

I would have made more, but
my printer and I are NOT getting along

Need a new printer, me thinks.

So much has happened, and I have
been meaning to share with you on my blog.
Some big news. BIG!
(At least for me!! lol)

I have made the
Scrapbook Nerd Creative Team!!!
I am a NERD!!
So exciting!

This week was my first week!!
I am so honored to be on their team--
this online store is absolutely fantastic!
Great prices, great shipping, great service.
And one of the main things I love, 
is that they are completely Canadian!
I love their forums--such a great place
to be. 
There is a running joke among the 
fellow forum girls--the Nerds, as we are called.
The Scrapbook Nerd owners, Joy and Barb, 
are called 'our dealers'. lol
Another term would be enablers at their finest!
So, I would like to share some 
of my projects with you.

I am so excited about this opportunity!!
