I have some great things to post but I am just too tired at this between today and guys are in for a treat.
I am in the middle of creating a class (WHY YOU ASK? Because although I have a million little things on my plate right now, my brain is on overload and I have begun to create and therefore, my class schedule for 2009 has already begun!!!!) This January class is going to be a VERY speical one...I am still working out the kinks, but ladies this is going to be one of my favorite classes as I am already seeing the meaning behind it.

Now have to leave you with something delish. I love being a girl. It is so much fun to buy clothes, purses, to scrapbook and buy paper and embellies, create pretty things, pefume..did I mention perfume? .....sigh...what we could do with more time and MORE MONIES...LOL

Happy Thursday and have a safe and happy day.

Well, isn't grand to know such Great ladies?

I had a great time at the ScrapYard Sale at Scrapbooks"n"Stuff. This is one of the LSS. The owners are Lisa and Kobe and they are really nice ladies. Fun too!!! I don't get to participate often in their events as I am teaching most of the time, but they do have some awesome goodies in stock. They also have a great blog that you can check out here.go check them out! Here's Kobe, Me and Ady.

Here is one of our favorite girls: Laverne...she is such a sweet and talented gal.

These are two of my favorite girls. We met at the ScrapYard Sales quite a while ago, and have been participating ever since. We see each other every time we do these ScrapYard Sales and they keep me rolling with laughter. Great girls! (from left to right: Me, Barby, Ady & Eni)

Some of you asked what is a ScrapYard Sale...well the store rents a table to you and you bring your personal scrapbooking merchandise that you no longer want to use. You find some really great bargains and the truth is the LSS tends to have a huge turnout for these. At the end of the day, the store gives you a store credit and you can purchase new merchandise. ISN'T that a great idea? THANKS LISA AND KOBE!!!!

I had a great time with Ady and D. Although I missed Vanessa, as she is always a part of my (in) group...(that's what Margie calls it). LOL.

Well, am trying to mount all this stuff on the walls for my girls on Friday/Saturday.



It's all about ScrapPink this week...

Here are the Sneak Peaks I promised.
Vane: This one if for you.
This is only one side of the room full of boxes of goodies that have to be inventoried and put on display....DELISH, DELISH!!!!!

These are some of the raffles that I will be gifting on Saturday for those who participate in the "$100.00" Donation Collection for the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Some really awesome prizes have been chosen for this specific cause, so make sure you get those donations in to be eligible for these gifts!!!! (You do not need to be present in order to participate in this raffle).
This will be one of the MAKE & TAKES for ScrapPINK.
That's it for now. Gotta go and start packing goodie Bags.

MONDAY September 15, 2008

Girls, I am kitting and uhhmmm....yeah kitting. Heading out to the dentist and turning in some mini books that I really should have turned in in the late 1600's.....get it? LOL.

Thank you all for your kind words and support. This weekend was really an emotional battle for me, as I kept crying on and off. I went to church yesterday and honestly it was so soothing. I felt my spirit at peace, and that is something that I really needed. Still mourning but I feel serenity which is one thing I look for in my life on a daily basis. I have attached Aleida's link for those of you who could not find it.
I completed a little mini album on Elijah on his 6th grade year, this weekend. Since Aleida's death, this past Friday, I am so bent on finishing my personal projects, so what better time than the present. Will try to post the finished product by tomorrow.

OK...let's have SOME HAPPY NEWS. THE WINNER OF THE RAK IS: Haberdawoman. Please email me at with your info, and I shall send you, your goodie.
ONTO SOME SCRAPPY NEWS.....................LOOK WHAT'S COMING IN..........

These are ordered. too........will probably take a zillion years to get here as most of the stuff I have been ordering lately, what can I say? Vendors are WONDERFUL!!! (tongue in cheek here). HAD TO POST baby is no longer a baby...he is a little man. (I don't care how old he gets...he will ALWAYS BE MY BABY)!!! This boy really is a sweetie. He has a heart of gold...even though he loooooooooooooves to irritate us and especially his cousin Caleb...gotta love him. DELISH! OK: Enough drooling over my, hee, haa.

Anyway, have to go. I have a hot date with a dentist.

Sunday and I have a headache....still.....

OK's been a really rough weekend. I am dealing with another root canal I have to get surgery on, cleaning, getting organized preparing for Scrap Pink (thank you Ady for your help on Friday night) cutting 500 turkey kits, and dealing with the loss of the beautiful Aleida Franklin. This has hit me really hard, and I am amazed as I really have no answers as to why her death has impacted me this way. Her husband posted about this difficult time and how sad that a young 22 year old ran a red light, T-boned her car and Aleida died instantly. That quick, that simple. I can imagine the burden this young woman will carry for the rest of her life. I have thought about little except this loss during the weekend. One thing I know for sure is that Aleida left her children and husband a legacy with the beautiful albums she created. This has made such an impact on me. I am literally making changes in the way I scrapbook, how I teach and how I invest my time in this industry. I love this business and even though it is not always fun for me, I love to see a completed album in front of me. It is one of the most amazing feelings I love to experience. I encourage you all to work more diligently in being your families historian. Many of us have thousands of dollars worth of materials...but how many albums, or projects are truly completed? I made inventory last night of what I have completed....I was surprised to find out I have 31 albums completed. Yet, I have a ton of projects pending. This tragedy has made me want to get back to my old ways, and literally work on my personal albums every single day. I encourage you to do the same.

I will continue to pray for Aleida's family and now for this young lady.
I will be going to church this morning and I just want to loose myself in God's presence....I need to seek some spiritual soothing, and some uplifting....I know I will find it in God's House.
I promise to post some DELISH STUFF TOMORROW...I promise...but for today...I'm still mourning.
HUGS and a lot of love to all those who are mourning this loss.

I am so sad............

today a beautiful woman who touched so many has gone to be with our Saviour. Aleida Franklin, known as the Scrapping Rican passed away this morning due to a horrible car accident. Vanessa called me to tell me and I am just in shock. I read this lovely ladies blog every day and her talent was truly amazing. She was a cheerleader for so many and the truth is that even though we never met in person, her spirit was one of good cheer, sharing and abundant love. You could tell she loved her children beyond words, and she loved her husband with all her might. I am so sad and the truth is have been crying for a while. I just can't get over this. I am truly shocked. Please pray for this family as she leaves behind a 7 year old son and a 3 year old daughter. I can't even imagine the loss her husband is feeling right now. PLEASE PRAY!!!!

Its a fresh week and....

it's Monday gang and I really like Monday's. It's the beginning of a week and I can begin least that is what I tell myself.

FOR SOME KIT NEWS...I have 2 kits coming up for the month of October and will be posting those in a couple of weeks.
NOW FOR SOMETHING NEW: I am also putting some additional kits together. These are going to be called (THE 21 KITS). Many of you have expressed the need to purchase smaller kits at a lesser price, therefore, I am on a mission to KIT some pretty fantastic merchandise together for $21.00 dollars. The quantities will not be as large as the main kits, but the quality of the kits will still be the same.

This is just a little peak at what's in the first 21 kit family.
Is this adorable or what????!!!! I will post a picture of the complete kit by next week.

I only have a limited quantity available ...but just to sweeten the pot....there is a delicious little twist here...Everyone who purchases the kit will be getting a FREE gift in their kit....hint, involves chipboard!!!! The kits cost is $21.00. So make sure you order yours quickly because when they are gone...THEY ARE GONE!!!!

YOU MUST EMAIL ME AT if you want one of these.

Catch you all tomorrow.

My heart is so heavy....

and burdened for my friends loss. I am so sad to announce that our wonderful friend Vanessa's Mami has passed away. This woman was an integral part of her life and whenever Vanessa spoke of her, her eyes would glow and you knew, her mami was a special lady.

Vanessa was a fantastic granddaughter and a beautiful example to me. She showed me the love that we should all have for those so dear to us. She taught me to appreciate the little things like spending time with your grandma...because they are fragile and time is the enemy. She showed me find humour even when the times were rough. With her persistent and do it yourself attitude she showed me that sacrifice is a duty and not a burden. I am very proud of Vanessa, as she is truly an example to all of us as to how to handle our aging parents. She shines in my book, and today I continue to pray that our Heavenly Father give Vanessa and her family peace and serenity in this difficult time. I know with all certitude that Vanessa's' Mami today is with our Saviour at peace and with her beloved. Please keep Vanessa and her family in your prayers.
PS: This layout belongs to's one of the one's that she did a while back, but it has always been one of my favorites.

Now look what's heading our way........

IKE! As if we really wanted this unwanted visitor.

Many of you have been emailing me sending me well wishes on Ike. (thank you for your concern) For those of us who live down south we know and understand that hurricane's are a part of life in South Florida. Now this is something my family and I DO NOT take lightly. We lost our home and all of belongings when we rode out Hurricane Andrew in our home at the time. It was the most terrifying experience of my life. I will never forget my mother singing throughout the night and praising GOD...(Gosh to this day it gets me)...she praised HIM for HOURS and HOURS. The wind would blow and this horrible noise (sounded like a train whistle at time) kept coming at us for those long hours. We never expected what came upon us. The truth is, neither did the forecasters. They thought it was going further up NORTH. I clearly remember the weather being absolutely BEAUTIFUL that Sunday morning....yet come Sunday night...that was another story. The wind picked up and it began getting stronger. The lights went out and shortly after, we heard the first explosion. It was the first window to shatter and (gosh gang..I haven't spoken about this for a really long time and my tears are rolling down my cheeks)...anyway, my dad began to scream and push us all into the utility room. He grabbed a twin mattress and kept it against the door that lead to the outside and my Mom held another mattress against a small utility window in that tiny room. ALL NIGHT. They held those mattresses ALL NIGHT. My mom did not stop praising GOD. She kept singing and kept all of us from loosing control. The windows exploded one by one. Yet, mom kept her family united in one thought...and it was really all about our Saviour. We heard the most ominous sound of something tearing in half yet, Mom kept us focused and even though all 7 of us were petrified, she kept the faith. The wind became a part of the house and you could hear this being devouring our home. You could hear glass break, explosions of unknown sources, objects hitting each other, and wondering what was that breaking sound. We were in a pitch black room and all you could hear was this animal destroying our sanctuary, but you also heard my mothers voice. It was strong, with a mission and it never wavered through that terrifying night. She later told us that she was falling apart...but the truth is, that as I think about it, all I heard was strength, power wisdom and FAITH in her voice. It was the longest night of my life. When Dad and I walked out of the room around 7:40am....(everyone else waited because we weren't sure what to expect) my heart fell. All the windows were gone, the sofa was gone! The wall that connected my sister's room had come in not in IS THIS REAL? There was a door in the middle of my room, a gap in the roof, mom's room was destroyed, there was water damage....I still see it vividly and still can not believe something like that can really happen. As we all came out of the utility room, we all began to feel the shock and the overwhelming feelings that accompany someone who is the middle of a crisis. Our home was destroyed. We lost everything of material wealth including, furniture, clothes, home goods, everything that makes a home...well, the house itself was considered a total loss. Yet in spite of all the loss and the sorrow we went family survived. We learned a lot. It was a slow painful recovery, as expected when destruction hits communities on such a large scale. It took us years to reconstruct the house we called home. Dad and mom purchased another house and we continued the journey of life. I am sharing this with you all because it is a serious matter. We must be cautious and prepare for the worst but not forget that in all this we serve a GOD that will take care of us and lead us in times of trouble and danger. With that also comes responsibility as we must take action and prepare as good stewards should. The biggest lesson I learned was: Everything can be replaced except: PEOPLE, PETS and PICTURES. I have you all in my prayers, and I ask all of you to keep us in yours.

Just a little flower.......

...goes a long way. Since flowers were on my mind and the topic of yesterdays entry, I thought I share.

This is one of my favorite layouts I did for the MIRA class early this year. I always leave space when I teach classes so my students can add pictures and whatever embellies they like. When I was done with mine...a flower was calling me...(I promise...I heard it...LOL). I used the Bazzill paper flowers and added a Kaiser bling in the middle. I added the wood flourishes (also from kaiser) after I had added perfect pearls and this completed my layout. This page has a huge journaling entry in the back. This layout was important to me and I did not want to compromise the art or the I wrote in the back of the page (the entry is so long it looks like a book) Not that I really care. I wanted to let my son know certain things that were in my heart and's all down for posterity.

OK...lately the craze here has been flowers. I am not able to keep them stocked long enough and it's an aweful lot of fun to see what my gals can come up with when they get their hands on flowers. So in the spirit of are some of the flowers that are presently in stock right now. ENJOY
