Best Friends Mini Album

I have really been into Mini Albums. They are so fun to do and they are perfect for a single event or person.

When D3 and BFF get together its always a party. These pictures were taken with a cell phone so they were not the best but I just had to scrapbook them.

I used paper from Sandy Lion and my Bind-it-all (a must have for making mini albums!)

So much fun. I hope you enjoy it.

New Classes and a long week

Last week was a long week. I worked 12 to 14 hour days almost everyday.

I hope this week goes a little better. (I say that every week... Sometime it will be true.)

Friday I spent a good part of the day with my mom and sister at the scrapbook expo. We didn't get a lot done but it was fun to just relax and visit.

Here are a couple of classes I will be doing this quarter

The Give Thanks class sold out at both stores the first night we offered it. So it looks like I will be doing two more classes for it. I also had a lady call and order 40 kits for a Super Saturday.

This class is not full yet but looks like it could be soon. After having to cancel a few classes last quarter its a good sign.

The best thing I did all week was attend the Youth Fireside on Sunday night. The speakers talked about some of thier experiences on a 3 month trek. The sister inspired me. She talked a little about finding perfection in this life by setting aside all those things we think we should be doing and focusing on those things we know we should do. I can't express it the way she did but I was lifted up. It was the boost I had been needing. I am so glad that the stake invited the parents to attend. It was just what I needed.

For those who have asked, D1 is doing well at college. She has been called to serve as the HFPE leader in her singles ward. She loves her roommates and her classes. I text her almost daily (I can't believe how much I miss her!) She loves college and we are happy for her.

I hope everyone has a great week!

And here is another one. I will be doing a class for this at heartland.

All better now

That last post was way to whinny and sappy for my liking. But for those who have asked, we are doing well. Thank you for your concern.

Anyway here are some photos of how we spent Labor Day weekend. It was way fun and I was going to post them last week and then just didn't. This was D5 first time to a beach, ever! So most of the photos were of her.

While most of us went swimming, Hubby, D2 and only son went fishing. Only son had a grand time until a fish got away with his pole. Poor kid.

Would someone please...

Would someone please tell me how this happened?

Thoughts I had last night as we drove home
*Does she know how valuable she is?

*Does she know she is a daughter of God with unlimited potential?

*Did I teach her all the things she is going to need to know?

*Does she understand how strong she is?

*Will she ever need me again?

*Does she know how much I love her?
