Bon Voyage!

Off to Springfield, IL for little Hiroyuki at 6:00AM!!!!!!!!
That meant that mom had to get up at 5:00AM - LOL!!

He packed his bag up with lunch, snacks, water & juice and of course, his GAMEBOY & his MANGA books (NARUTO). I took him to school and you can hear all the excitment from his classmates in the gym. What fun...I wanna go!!! But DH is still out of commission and I wanted to make sure he's OK.

Yes, he had relapsed last week with Hunt's Syndrome but he is SLOWLY recovering (thank goodness!!). This time he promised that he will only go to the office twice (not everyday like last time - UGH!!).

So off Hiro went on a nice luxury bus! What a life of a fourth grader!

Oh! Yes, he took a camera....a true son of a scrapbooker! Cant' wait to see what these pictures will look like! LOL!!

Happy May!

Well, it's a BEAUTIFUL day here in Chicago...about 60+ and very sunny!

Finally got a start on my scrap area downstairs in the basement, swept and trying to figure out a layout on where to put what...hopefully it will work out that way! LOL!

This Saturday is National Scrapbook Day and I will be helping out at Frozen Memories so if you're in the neighborhood, come join us! It will be their Grand Opening & Ice Cream Social = what a great combo! LOL! There'll be MnTs and prizes given out as well as some sales I'm sure!

I just completed my project using EK Success' Art Blanche line (ringed wall calendar) and Rusty Pickle's Princess Bride line...beautiful papers! Don't laugh....that's me about 15 years ago! We did a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony in the morning and then had a champagne luncheon in a western setting. Lots of FUN!

Oh! The flowers are punched by McGill's 2" flower punch. I layered 3 flowers together, put a Karen Foster bling brad through them and then creased the petals a little. I love how they look!

Thanks for looking!
