Happy National Scrapbook Day!

I think I lost a day last month! I swear I thought May 1st was Saturday. Now I forgot all kinds of things because in my mind I had today to finish them up. Good grief! My brain is just shot. I hate it when time gets away from me.

Are you doing anything special for the weekend? I'm playing a little today (or working rather) but then I don't know what we'll do tomorrow.

If you're in the mood to win a fabulous prize from one of our awesome 2Peas sponsors, then check out the GG Blog today. The Garden Girls have posted all kinds of challenges that start today and end Sunday night. You can enter more than once but win only once.

My challenge is to use embossing and stamping on a project. Any project, any kind of embossing and stamping. Easy peasy. Right?!!

Here's my sample for the challenge:

We also got as Garden Girls, to select three scrapbookers in the forum that we admire and are inspired by. Oh my goodness!! My list could go on and on and on. Seriously!! I'm completely inspired by so many people. I chose, however, sasha_f, Carolyn Peeler, and walesk. These gals just knock my socks off in the gallery every time.

Here is my layout inspired by Sasha:

On another note, we survived the anniversary of Joey's passing better than I expected. I was so busy all day that I fell into bed exhausted. I believe it to be a blessing. My daughter asked me if we're supposed to feel sad, and I told her no. We're allowed to feel whatever we need to feel on any given day. I'm glad it didn't turn out as negative as I feared it might. And thank YOU for taking the time to post such loving comments. Whether I know you personally or not, I am VERY grateful for each of your messages. They are wonderful!!


  1. Cute pages & card Jen! Love that pic of you. I'm so glad that Joey's anniversary wasn't as heartwrenching as you thought. You've been on my mind quite a lot.

    I am glad Joey's anniversary wasn't as horrible as you expected. I have two good friends who lost their sons in the last 2 years and both say that you never know when it will hit you like a ton of bricks...but it's often NOT the days that you THINK it will (such as the anniversary of their death), but rather it's in the every day things. I wish you and your family peace and comfort. Always.

  3. great projects - i need to whip out the stamps more often - they scare me! Glad your family got through Joey's anniversary day okay - i was thinking of you!

  4. I am so glad that it was easier than you had thought and expected. Love and happiness to all of your family. Joey is smiling down on all of you.
