~Happy Spring...Happy Days....Happy People~

Good morning all you crazy crafters! :)

I had such a fun-busy day yesterday.
Yesterday was Easter Egg Hunt day at school.
It was a balmy 80 degrees too!
Here are a couple quick shots I got of my little Kindergartner.
**loves it**
So blessed to have a wonderful teacher this year and amazing parents to help
out in the classes, we have had a great first year in school!
Happy Easter!

I wanted to take one moment to share that Quilt Connection
and Hancock Fabrics in Murfreesboro TN have agreed
to be drop off locations for Conkerr Cancer.
It's a small thing but every bit helps and I am so excited about Conkerr
and what Nashville/Middle TN will bring to those kids!
If you don't know what Conkerr is, please check it out.

Ok on to scrapbooking today!
More reveals from SFTIO kits! :)

You know I break all the rules for scrapbooking, so this layout
is not different...where do I start? LOL
It's about me to begin with not my boys...
it has NO pictures *gasp* and I left the staples showing! *double gasp* LOL
But I love it, Love it so much.
You notice I journaled "There will be no abuse in her life anymore"
Because when I think of courage and myself, the only thing that really
comes to mind is being able to leave my ex husband and surviving
all that he did to me. I don't even feel that was courage as much as just
pure survival mode. Nonetheless, totally true, never again. :)

Oh and some SVG files for Easter!
A cute Bunny and more.
FREE so feel free to share.

Now, I have a fun GIVEAWAY for my online friends today!
What about a very cool set of stamps?!
All you have to do is leave a comment, be a follower and that's it.
I mean what could be easier?
If you have not been part of my blog for long
I do giveaways all the time because I love crafting and if I find
a great deal I usually pick up two, one to share and one for me :)
It's all about sharing the crafty love!

I will pick a winner randomly on Monday!
So leave me a comment, let me know your alive and kicking!
I have some Cri-Kit pens to give away shortly
and more stamps coming up too!

~Have a beautiful weekend~
~Thank you for stopping by and saying hey~

Gorgeous LO Pinky!!! Everything about this LO is perfect, inc the staples!!
Even if you feel you were in survival mode, somewhere along the way, you got the courage to do that as well as to get out!!
Your SVG files are just too cute, really got to invest in SCAL!!!
Love the stamp set giveaway....count me in.

I love your layout. I believe there are no rules for scrapping. When I started, my friends used CM and I didn't like their pages so I just did my own thing!

Well, I am alive (but not kicking). Anyway, just wanted to tell you that it is so brave to scrapbook and share your story. I have lupus and some other diseases, and I have never had the nerve to do a layout that gets all of my feelings out. Maybe one day... Thanks for a chance to win the stamp. And, as always, enjoyed your post!
