All I can say about the last twelve days is busy, busy, busy! Right after my kickoff on Friday, June 1st, we took Logan to school in Rolla, MO, had the rest of the family at our house for Sunday dinner, then did the crafts for VBS at my church with my daughters, an overnight trip to Franklin, TN, to visit my husband's brother and we took the MIL with us. Then Sunday family dinner again, it all gets a little blurry sometimes!
We've also been dealing with the sudden, tragic death of one of my husband's cousins to a drunk driving accident. Craig's whole family was in the van when a drunk driver hit them. Craig had seen it coming and had pulled over as far as he could get against the guardrail at the Rend Lake Dam to protect his family and took the brunt of the impact. He died before they could get him out of the car. Such a shock. Such a waste. Such a devastation to this young family. He has four children, age 16 and under. Pray for his wife, Marla, their children William, Delores, Pierce, and JodiAnn. Pray for his parents, Russell and Martha, and his siblings, Rhonda, Audrey, and Keith. My heart goes out to them over and over again each day as I think about them and appreciate my family more.
This current week has also been filled with basically digging-out from the chaos of VBS week and workshops. I've had three so far this week with the fourth tonight and another tomorrow. It's a feast or a famine in the Stampin' Up! world sometimes, but I LOVE it.
With Father's Day coming up this weekend, here's a new creation using the new catalog set "Blue Ribbon" and my favorite new Designer Paper, "World Spectacular"!
LOTS of new products used here, including the "Chevron" Textured Impressions Folder and Daffodil Delight 1/4" Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon!
I LOVE all the new Designer Papers in the new Annual Catalog! You really need to see them in person to really appreciate just how gorgeous they are! I always pretty much order at least one package of each of them as soon as we can order from a new catalog, but I was completely blown away when I opened up "World Spectacular"! The colors are so rich, deep, vibrant, and the designs are so vintage yet so very vesatile! I'm so glad I have a year to play with these!
And the inside:
Well, I'm off to Staples this morning to buy more ink! I'm almost out of some of my colors (my printer says all of them are LOW!) but still have several more classes to prep for!
As you can see I have been creating, so I have lots to show you in the next few days!
Until tomorrow, have a "Stampingrox!" Day!
