Sweet Shower

A sweet (and very large) Bridal shower was held for DW's baby girl this weekend. As you can see scrappers were represented at the shower. However some very important scrappers didn't get in the photo (sorry). I just was not thinking(as usual, at least I'm consistent) I missed DW, Rhonda and her daughter as well as Chelle who was sporting a very good looking her. The shower was held for a beautiful, bright, young, enthusiastic woman.

As you can see we really do own clothing that doesn't have scrapping phrase on it, or is not some type of pj. Good looking ladies if you ask me. Even if I was the only one to uhhhh..... wear jeans and wrinkled shirt : ).

Rhonda's card was OUT OF THIS WORLD BEAUTIFUL. My photo does not do it justice (stretch your imagination for the bride and groom she said) it was layered, had been glittered and was embossed and I'm sure I'm leaving out details.

Lisa made her a set of cards that are awesome in there own right.

In the back parking lot (of a church oh my!)I found these mysterious women. I think they were doing a deal, some kind of new "fix" scrappers are into.

I just wanted to mention Betty's daughter had been in an accident last night. IT sounds like everything will be fine (more info on her blog, link on side bar).Very scary stuff especially when family is involved and little ones. Betty I'm so thankful everyone is doing well!

If a freak twist of the wrist my Mom is very ill she spent last night in the er . She is home this morning (yes I'm deciding to stay or go) and I'm thinking exactly what Betty said on her blog: Life is fragile. I hope all of you find you and your loved ones safe and sound this morning .

Blue moon

Melinda's blog has been added to the side bar, it was great to see her on Saturday!
Why I cant get the link above to work here on the page is a mystery, but the side bar link works!
I had a great time this weekend we were missing a few so if you weren't at the crop I hope to see you the next time! And DW gets a special shout out for all that fantastic food she made us. Betty once again Thank You for sharing your building with a bunch of hooligans (at the current point in time the hooligan would be me).

HAPPY LATE Birthday to Barb!

One of my favorite songs as a kid was blue moon it was sung by Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra and went something like this:
Blue moon, you saw me standing' alone
Without a dream in my heart,
without a love of my own
Blue moon,
you knew just what I was there for
You heard me sayin' a prayer for
Someone I really could care for

So after this weekends festivities I designate this Blue week on the Blog!
Just be careful and watch out for the infamous BLUE BUCKET you never know whats been in it!
AM I in trouble or what?
