Save Your Ta Ta’s

Heather, one of my CT gals told me she saw a bumper sticker that said “Save Your Ta Ta’s”  How funny is that?  So of course it reminded me that I AM A SURVIVOR!  I want to encourage all my blog readers to do this……….

Squeeze Your Boobies!a

Seriously, I found my cancer with my yearly mammogram so what ever it takes to keep us alive.. lets do it!  Early detection is the key!  Which reminds me of another story…

When we were in Canada, we were going to Old Town Quebec and saw all these pink headed people walking with police escorts.. literally 1000’s of people… so I snapped a few photos, and finally rolled my window down and asked if anyone spoke English and a lady said she did.  I asked if they were marching for breast cancer awareness and she said yes… I hollered.. “ I am a 15 year survivor!” out the window… they all gave me a good Canadian Whoot!  and next thing I knew that lady was tapping on my window with a Canadian Breast Cancer T-Shirt!  Wasn't that nice?  She is the one in the foreground in this first photo.

Opps! She Did It Again!

You remember a few weeks ago I showed you a darling kit, Farm Fresh by Late Night Scraps?  Well Kelly has done it again!  This time with a “companion” kit, Happy Haunting by Late Night Scraps.  She is the featured designer at Ahhh Scrap and Kelly has made this a sweet deal by offering a coupon if you purchase the bundle!  How cool is that? 


Here are some layouts that I made with Happy Haunting!  I love that you can use this for just your basic fall photos but what a darling kit for all your Halloween pictures and parties.  The fall one was taken when we were in New Hampshire in a quaint little town, where the shop owners all had dressed up props in cute fall themes.  The “pumpkin gal” was getting a lot of attention!  LOL  Then I saw the "” Mother Nature” and and I immediately thought that they would make a great layout proving, “Its not nice to fool Mother Nature”.

This second one was from Nate last year, and he was so excited to go trick or treating.   They had a trailer all decked out with hay and chairs and several of his little friends, mommies all riding on the trailer, dads riding shotgun in the truck,  but at the very first house they went to, a man was dressed up like the grim reaper and stood perfectly still till Nate and his friends got close and then moved and scared them all!  That was it!  Back to the house they all went and just finished up the night with friends and family!  What kind of person scares a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds?  Oh well… shall see how it goes this year!

Paying it Forward!

A few days ago I got a call from someone who said they “thought they were at my house”.  I was like ok?…. anyway I asked who it was and he said it was the local florist.  To my surprise I had a beautiful bouquet of pink roses from my wonder hubby and my daughter.  I know it was my daughter who negotiated the deal.. LOL that's why daughters rock!  Anyway,  she asked me to take a picture of them to show her.  I had just done that today when I got an instant message from her ( she is 20 and away at college) saying she was missing home today!  I am missing her too.  Again she asked if I had taken the pictures of the flowers so, I decided I would bless her with this blog post!  I am sending her this big bouquet of flowers  just because I love her!  She has been a blessing to me and my hubby and yes, even her brothers.  But I just want her to know how special she is to me and how much I value her not only as my daughter, but as a person.  She is not only beautiful on the outside, but on the inside as well.  She has been one of God’s most precious blessings to me!  Love you Maggi and here is your very own bouquet of roses!  Get you some floral spray and smell them!  Thanks for thinking of me, it made my day and I hope this makes yours!

They smell so nice!  Very fragrant.  Check out the close up!  Pink, your favorite color too!  Love you Maggi!

2 Cute 2 Spook QP Freebie and some Inspiration

Whew!  Its been a wild few days for me.  I am finally getting around a little better since pulling a muscle in my stomach.  Still in some pain but nothing like it was when it happened.  So, I have been on my computer a  little more lately.  You may remember one of my CT gals, Sarah Taylor aka threeunderfour and she made this darling little QP for you with my new kit, 2 cute 2 spook.  Thanks Sarah, its darling!   I hope you can use it and be sure to check out the full kit and all the little add-on goodies that go with it. I am only selling at Pretty Scrappy, so its one stop shopping!  Without further ado, here is the QP!

I ran across this little poem and wanted to share it with you.  Maybe some can use it to pass along with your treats this Halloween.  I am not a huge fan of Trick or Treating, but if you do have little kiddo’s coming to your door, (I never do since we live out in the country) maybe put this in their bag along with your treat.  I went ahead and added the one about the pumpkins too!  Both are good reminders for us!   Hope when you see a pumpkin, or grab some candy corn this year you will be reminded of these simple truths.  His, Teri

CANDY CORN MESSAGE
YELLOW reminds us of God's "Light of the world", Jesus Christ
ORANGE reminds us of the fiery flames that Jesus saves us from
WHITE reminds us of the righteousness that is ours through Jesus
The sweet taste reminds us of the sweetness of God's Words!
(Psalm 119:103) Dawn Truett=-)

CHRISTIANS ARE LIKE PUMPKINS
God picks you from the patch, brings you in, and
washes all of the dirt off which you may have gotten
from other pumpkins.  Then, He cuts the top off and
scoops out all of the yucky stuff.  He removes seeds
of doubt, hate, greed, unforgiveness, etc.  Then, He
carves a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you
to shine for all the world to see.  Are you letting your
light shine?  Be a jack-o-lantern for Jesus!

I’m Back! Here’s the Reason Why!!!

I saw these darling little Goblin’s and, well one thing led to another and before I knew it I was making a kit! So, I guess I’m back! I am only selling at Pretty Scrappy but I hope you will jog over and take a closer look at my new kit, 2 Cute 2 Spook by Teri Mayo. I made a little felt paper pack to go along with this and am working on making some more little Goblin’s to use as an add on or for any of your Halloween photos! They are so cute and whimsical! I had a rough night last night and ended up in the ER! I apparently have torn a muscle in my lower stomach and have some internal bleeding that my body will absorb, so Praise the Lord! I was in excruciating pain, so I am thankful that ( at 3:30 am ) they were finally able to tell exactly what I had done after doing umpteen tests, but the one that showed the tear was a CAT scan. Glad to be home and am sore and have a few weeks of recovery till I am back to 100% but I feel so blessed to be able to know what it is. So, without further ado… here is 2 Cute 2 Spook!

PS Happy Harvest

And this adorable alpha is a must have too!  Love the painted chipboard.  Its slightly sanded to give that grungy look.

Happy Harvest Alpha PSPackaging

I guess I love this kit because of the Harvest theme.  I am so reminded of how the Lord tells us that the fields are ripe for harvest but the labors are few.  How true this is today as we look at this world and their empty lives trying to find happiness in everyplace but the one true place that we can find it.  And that is with a relationship with the Lord.  Lets be about His business in telling others about Him and “His Harvest”.  Here is a little QP that I made for my friend Melanie, for her birthday today.  This was on our trip to Maine. They are a super fun couple and we had a blast with them!  So Happy Birthday Melaine and here is a “party favor” for stopping by my blog!  It will be available  for 7 days so grab it while you can!  Then go and check out Tracie’s designs at the stores listed under my previews. Have a great weekend!  His, Teri
