Behind again! Lots of photos!

Hello!  I know. . .BAD BLOGGER!  Oh well!  This will be a picture heavy post just to catch you up!!

 First, Happy Mail from 2Peas! I've been looking for that SC stamp in the upper right forever!  So glad I got it!  Had to get a couple other Studio Calico items from 2Peas since they were out of stock at SC!  Love them all. . .just have to use them now!!! :)

 This is just a small card I made.  I sell them at Sublime (the chocolate shop where I work!)  I just wanted to share.  I think it is kinda cute!!!

The Livin' It Youth Conference at my church was fantastic!  Our youth pastor (who is also on the worship team with me) did a wonderful job putting everything together.  There were a few glitches, but all-in-all, it ran pretty smoothly!  It was awesome to see all the youth from the area alive and on fire for Jesus!!!!!

Last Friday was a crazy day at work.  Just lots of stuff happened that wasn't exactly as I would have liked it.  On top of that, I come home to this!  Yep, my 'precious' dogs were bored and decided to destroy a Netflix DVD!  ARGH!  We hadn't even had a chance to watch it yet!  I was so upset with them!  It just wasn't a good day!

My mom's birthday was yesterday, so I made her a card.  She LOVES hot-air balloons, so this was a perfect fit!  I got the idea on Pinterest; I would never have put those colors together, but they are stunning!


 For my mom's birthday celebration, we had her and my dad over for Tuna Steaks, Veggies, and Mashed Potatoes.  I also tried to make her a white chocolate cheesecake.  Well, it was a mess!  I won't even go into all the trouble I had, but you can see it came out of the oven (top) looking like a souffle.  Then it fell making it look like a pie.  Trying to get it out of the spring-form pan wasn't easy either- it was stuck to the bottom.  Oh well.  It wasn't pretty, however, it tasted good!!!!

My husband fell asleep around 5pm Saturday and slept until Sunday morning.  That gave me an evening to work on some scrapbooking items!!!  The top photo is a collage of some of the pages in a mini-album I made for my Pastor.  We had a guest speaker who prophesied that our Pastor will be doing great things for the Lord in different countries.  He said we need to send him to these countries.  Since I can't help financially, I wanted to do what I could- I made him something to record his trips in.  I finished that album and hope to give it to him this week!

The second photo is a collection of papers I'm going to put into a mini-album for my 30days of lists album.  I got most of that album done; now, I just need to put it together.  I can't wait!  It starts Saturday.  If you are interested, go to

Lastly, we had some wonderful thunderstorms yesterday!  It started to put a damper on the birthday celebration for my mom until we saw these!  Double rainbows!  You can't see the second one as well, but they were both pretty bright at first!  It was a great ending to the weekend!

What have you been up to???
