we went to the early service at church on Easter Sunday.
i love my church. for so many reasons.

i had Easter dinner here at my house.
i think there were officially 14 of us for dinner.
it was a good day.
i can’t believe it, but i didn’t pick up my camera one time that day.
i had every intention of having a fun photo shoot out on the deck.
it didn’t happen – what the heck?! my brain was somewhere else i guess.

in scrappy news;
i got an email from scrapbook trends requesting a layout for their sept. issue.
those kind of emails always make me do the happy dance!
i’m involved in a circle journal with some gals over at cmk.
we just started this week. i sent mine off for the first round just yesterday.
and wouldn’t you know – i didn’t take a picture of it.
what is WITH me and the no picture taking thing?
GGGgggrrrrr!!!

i can show you a couple scrappy things i’ve done.
ones that i DID remember to take pictures of. geesh!
this first one is a framed layout.
it was my challenge for the spring fling online crop at cmk a couple weeks ago.

this next layout i did for this weeks journaling challenge at cmk.
my challenge was to use mini letter stickers for my journaling.
i must admit, i AM addicted to mini letter stickers.
the sweet little faces in the pictures belong to my sisters, julie, cindy, and myself.
they are our kindergarten photos.
