Riff Raff Designs

This is a layout I did with my sponsor products from Riff Raff Designs. I am so impressed with this chipboard and if you haven't used it before, I urge you to do so! You won't be disappointed - it's delicious!

Texas Retreat

Here we are, our first scrapbook friends retreat. There were 7 of us who met from all over the country for the very first time. I am so blessed to call these girls friends. I cannot even begin to tell you how absolutely amazing each of these girls are - online and in person. My life is more beautiful because they are in it. If you want to join in on the fun, memories and of course, pictures (I'm talking 1000 between all of us, that's no exaggeration either) then head over to Have Your Way With Paper and join our message board. You will quickly find that this scrapbooking board is unique. We are real people with big hearts, true stories and tons of love. You matter.

What a wonderful week I have had! I had the honor of meeting - for the first time - some of my dearest online friends. What a blessing you all have been to my life. Thank you for taking time away from your families to meet up. My tummy still hurts from all the laughter and my heart is full from the extra dose of love. You all mean the world to me and I love you:)

Hi there! I hope you are enjoying your week. We've had a ton of sunshine this week, but today it decided to storm - that's ok, I didn't want to water my yard this evening anyway! I can hardly sit still today - my sister and I are leaving early Thursday morning to head to Arlington for a few days. We are meeting up with some of our online scrap sisters who we have "known" for a long time and are finally going to get to hug necks!!! We will be going to the Great American Scrapbook Convention together on Friday. Talk about HEAVEN! Great friends and NEW scrappy supplies! I can already hear the angels singing...
I'm sure I will overload my blog with pictures of my highly anticipated trip - we've been planning this trip for about 9 months!! Needless to say, I won't be back on until then. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and I hope to hear from you soon:) Blessings friends!
