What a great weekend!!!

My weekend was filled with family, friends, scrapping, teaching, praying, and celebrating. The weekend started off late Friday afternoon by packing up my scrapping supplies and heading over to our annual Fall Retreat with my LSS, Keepsakes by Design. It was a lot of fun to get together with the girls and scrap again. I will have to say, I didn't get as much done as I hoped to, but we had a lot of fun just the same! Here is a picture of me and my friend Susan Beth.

Saturday morning I opened the birthday present my sweet daughter sent me. I was so excited. She made her very first card and sent me the most awesome present! .

The fact that she made the card brought tears to my eyes and the words on wall hanging, wow!!! I couldn't hold back the tears!! I am so blessed!! I am going to hang it in a place where I will see it every day!!! Thank you sweetie, I will treasure this gift forever!! I taught two classes on Saturday and I was quite exhausted by the time I was finished. Thank you to everyone who took my classes!! I had a blast with all of you!! My back held out until about 10:00 and I tried to get a little more done after that, but I think I was just too tired. I went home at midnight and shared some chocolate birthday cake that was lovingly baked and frosted by my boys. It was delicious!! Sunday was back to the retreat to work on a beautiful make and take!!

It was a great weekend, but now I have a lot of catching up to do!! I am not going to stress over it, because eventually everything will get done!!

I was able to finish a layout for Scrapping the Music. Whoo hoo!! If you get a chance head on over and try out this week's challenge. It is based on the song, I'm Yours, by Jason Mraz. I used a picture from the photo shoot I took for Bethany and Matt's engagement announcement. I just love this picture!! We had so much fun that day and we were able to get several good shots! It is hard to believe these pictures were taken over 2 years ago!

I used KI Sheer Delights and paper from the beautiful Scenic Route Sonoma line. I also added some flowers from Prima and jewels from Creative Imaginations. I used my Cricut to cut out the large butterfly and the doily lace punch and butterfly punch from Martha Stewart.

I am off to do my bible study for today, so I hope you all have a fantastic Monday!!!
