Two of my very best friends and I decided we needed a fun day so we went to the CKC convention in Des Moines in July. We had SOOOOO much fun. And we all spent way more than we planned but Oh My, we got so many wonderful scrapping goodies.
Thelma and I bought our Christmas gifts for each other while we were there. Here is some of the fun things she picked out. Of course I'll have a few little surprises for her too.

Wish I had pics of the things she bought for me. LOVE LOVE the brown album I'll be getting later this year. We had so much fun picking out our gifts that we may do this every year. We definitely hope CKC comes back to Iowa.
We all said we bought enough supplies to keep us scrapping for quite some time. Patty and I have been scrapping every Tuesday afternoon. I've used alot of the supplies I bought at CKC. With winter and cold weather coming I think I need another shopping day at CKC. Heres a look at the goodies I bought that day.

Sorry I haven't posted for quite awhile. There has been much mourning and healing going on in our family. Life has a way of taking you places you don't see coming and you never wanted your family or your adult children to have to walk thru. But here we are. Decisions were made and lives are forever changed. People come into your family and they dont' always have the same values as your family. They make very bad decisions that can't be fixed. But our Lord is good and He will see our family thru. We've been leaning heavily on these verses- Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight", and also Philippians 4:13 "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me". We are all a little sadder but we are together and we have our faith to see us thru.
