Is My Busy Week Starting Out Slower?

I certainly hope it does.  The yard sale was fun yesterday as I was able to reconnect with some long lost scrappy friends.  Hurray! 

I do have a prayer request for a friend.  If you know the company Two Scrappy Owls, Slaine is one of the owners.  Slaine experienced a sudden loss of control over the left side of her body.  The doctors found a large brain tumor.  Slaine is having a biopsy on Wednesday to determine what is happening and what the doctors' next steps are going to be.  Please remember her in prayer.  Slaine is a beautiful woman who always has a little something extra to give to you no matter what.  Thank you.

My busy week kept me from doing much on the creation end of life.  But I did do a little recycling using my daughter's left over wedding programs, Artful Legacy Rubber Stamps and a few photos of the newly weds.

I stamped the sea oats on the front since it was a beach wedding.  I eliminated on full page (basically shorten the book by four pages).  Using Artful Legacy's dogwood tree stamps I created a boarder on the outer edge.  I trimmed down the photos to 4 x 4 and placed them on top of the printed program.  I wasn't so worried about everything being seen.  The photo is the focus and the bits and pieces of the wedding ceremony showing through to get a flavor of what happen.  I also added a scripture to the back inside page.  These will make awesome gifts to pass out at the family reunion for those unable to attend. 

I'll announce the two blog giveaways tomorrow.  The Survey is going to be live for a bit so that might be awhile.  All but one RAK has been sent out with the exception of one and it will go out later this week.
