April blog hop at Scrapbook Daisies!

Welcome to the next stop on the Scrapbook Daisies April blog hop :)

(If you happened to have arrived here first, please consider starting at the beginning of the hop at the Scrapbook Daisies blog (xinsert link) so that you don't miss out on any of the fun.)

I got to work with the gorgeous "Mabel" kit this month. The papers and embellishments included in the kit are absolutely beautiful.

Hopefully you've noticed the fun "scraplift" activity that the design team took part in this month... I was so thrilled to have the opportunity to "lift" my fellow dt member and friend, Kris Berc. When I found out that I got to lift her, I immediately knew I wanted to lift my favorite layout of hers, "Dream".

Did you enjoy seeing the design team's "lifts"?
Ready to get YOUR scrap on?
Want a chance at a prize?

You're invited to create a lifted project of your own!
Here are the deets:

* Choose one of the Scrapbook Daisies design team members that participated in this hop and lift one of her projects. It can be any of her projects that you find on her blog or in her Scrapbook Daisies gallery.
* Upload your completed lift to the Scrapbook Daisies Facebook page!/group.php?gid=58322850850 and include a pic or link to the person or project that you lifted (if you do not use Facebook, you can link your lift to the blog hop post on the Scrapbook Daisies blog
* Deadline is Sunday, April 24th at midnight your time.

Your next stop on the hop is... KRIS!

Cali girls went to Ohio

The cousins just left for Ohio for good. These are native Cali girls, and I know how they feel. My own Cali girl is never going to leave, and I know this is a very bittersweet thing to have her cousins leave. She doesn't really know where Ohio is, but she knows its not local.

I am wishing the very best for our Cali girls. We will miss them very much. I remember when I was a little girl and had to change homes, change my friends, everything. Its made me remember a lot of little things from more than 30 years ago that I thought I had forgotten. They will be fine becuse they have a mom and dad who love them very much.
And I am sure we'll see you soon!

me & Darlene

Have you ever had a friend who is just as crazee as you are? Well here's Darlene and me at the Girl Scout World Thinking Day.We are both equally insane. I am sort of thinking that this photo could make a cool scrapbook page one day. There are also some really great photos of us(pretend)eating paper mache shish kebabs at our booth (Cyprus) I wonder if Simply Scrapbooks would like these weird pictures on their walls LOL. Our booth won, by the way. Our troop 989 is a very talented group of girlies, and so is their leader! Congrats to all of them.

Can't wait for the Mad Hatter Crop! I love you, Simply Scrapbooks!

Bring on the color...

When it gets really REALLY gray here in the central Valley I am always reminded of the gray day that my daughter was born on eight years ago. Nothing was easy about that day- there was a few problems but oh what a miracle she was then and still very much is today (as we spend the majority of the evening dealing with issues related to the fact that she left her homework folder on the schoolbus this afternoon)But hey I said miracle, not PERFECT miracle!
