~Sunday is here, what a great weekend!~

Good morning my crafty friends.
This weekend has been an amazing weekend for our family.

I began the weekend Friday night, it was Becca's
birthday bash so we all met in town and went out for the evening.
Can you believe this is the first time in over 4 years
hubs and I have been out alone? Crazy huh?
It was so fun to dress up and go out for a bit.
We had to dash out early because the next morning we
had a commitment to meet up and help to make 500 pillowcases
for Conkerr Cancer. What an amazing day that was.
It was so wonderful to see everyone work together to
make all these pillowcases for the children.
Here is a list of companies who donated
to the cause by donating food.
if you know these companies please frequent them
and thank them for donating food to all the hard workers
who spent 10 hours making pillowcases.
*Especially the Middle TN area*

Sadly I took my boys home after 8 hours,
but they were so amazing, they ran fabric back and forth
cut, ironed and all the good stuff :)

On to scrappy schtuff!
Have you been to Dirty Scraps this weekend?
Here is my Layout for the challenge.

I used the Steam Punk Graphic45 papers, and
let me say I am IN LOVE! I also used my PLAID paint
and some Basic Grey.
I will definitely be finding the entire
Steam Punk line and buying it!!!!!!
If you want to find out more about the amazing
emotional challenges on Dirty Scraps
please do visit and play along.

Now I am off to finish up preparing for 2 birthday parties
we are having at our home today! I now am a mom to
an 8 yr old, 7 yr old and 15 yr old....oh how time flies :)

~Happy Sunday y'all!~
~ Thanks for stopping by and sharing in our lives~
