We had an amazing day yesterday with a college visit for our baby girl. I think she feel in love with this college and we are so comfortable with the idea of her there. Now we just have to figure out how to pay for a school that cost more a year than we make. But we walked and walked and walked and walked and climbed stair and more stairs. After 3 weeks of being sick it really wiped me out. Today was just an off day. Hung with the gals, but only got 2 pages done, but being with them was such a blessing. Came home and took a nap. Still tired, but hopefully tomorrow I'll perk up cause my husband is having knee surgery in the morning. He is so ready to get this knee fixed, I'll be so glad to see him walking without pain again. I don't know if I'll have much time for about the next 8 day for any scrappin or cards, but who knows. I'm really excited about some of the new files that Penny Duncan has up, but almost thru the 1st quarter of my baby's senior year. Got so much scrappin to do. We order the cap and gown this week so it's time to start designing graduation announcements.

Happileigh Scrappin and knew I had to give it a try. I was at my friend Barb's house for a swarm day and Amanda said I wonder if you could to it with snowflakes. Yep you sure can and the ideas are endless. I have a feeling I'll be giving a few of these away as presents for Christmas. So much fun. :P
Here is the gift and Card that I made for our Senior Saints Minister for Pastor Appreciation Month from our Small Group. He and his wife are the loveliest folks and it's been a rough year for them. He is in the hospital with cancer and not doing very well. The flowers and the pumpkin idea came from the awesome folks at SVG Cuts. If you order $9.98 worth of stuff by Tuesday the 13th you can get the Fall Mum Flower cuts for free. The Card template came from the gals over at Christmas with Cricut. If you haven't been following their blog, get over there and catch up. They have come up with some really amazing ideas. I've had so much fun checking that blog out every morning. The card came from Week 7, the snowman card. I've got go make the tea and lemonade for small group tonight.
