LO's, the crop and update on grandma

I created 2 layouts for this challenge. Brian took this picture at the wedding of Tanya and Jimmy and it may be used for a cd cover for the song that his uncle (pictured) wrote for her Father/daughter dance. It was an amazing song. I can't wait for you all to hear the song."Sweet Embrace"- my second layout that I created for this song of the kids at the wedding while group pictures were being taken. This just shows their relationship. They are so much like twins in the way they behave... they love each other so much.

I created this layout for Sketchy Thursday as a second layout for their challenge this week as well. I hope you jump over and play along with both Scrapping the Music and Sketchy Thursday!

Scrap That Poetry- When you thought I wasn't looking
Challenge #4 (wow, I can't believe we are on our 4th challenge already)
I fell in love with this poem since it would be a great way to say thank you to someone, show them how grateful you are for what they have done. Make sure to jump over and play along. The winner receives a RAK from Jessi and is a bonus GDTM for challenge #6!

I created this for my mom... as a thank you for everything she has done. What a wonderful role model she was for me. Thank you Mom for all those things you do even when you didn't know that I was watching. To read the poem click here.

I used the picture of my mom and I from my wedding, since it has such a sweet embrace between the two of us. Go say thank you to someone you love!
Crop for a Cure- On Saturday, I cropped from 9 am to 9 pm to raise money for Breast Health Services through Kinnon Keepsakes (my favorite scrapbook store that I miss so much!)
I took my camera but was so busy scrapbooking that I didn't remember to take pictures until the end of the crop. Here is Terry flying through layouts!

Buffy creating her "secret" elf card that she was teaching today.. it was so adorable. I hope she posts the amazing card on her blog.. hint, hint!

I caught Jenn as she was leaving.

This is my space... messy= productive
I kept most of my things on the floor next to me.
The crew:
Mom C., Jenny, Terry, Me, Buffy and Jenn
I had a blast ladies... we definitely need to do this more!
I totally forgot to take a picture of me and my friend Amy who ran the event.
I can't wait to hear how much we raised!
Here are some of my creations from the crop. I scraplifted a few of the layouts for this crop. My mojo wasn't flowing with my grandma's health on my mind this weekend. I am going to come back and try to give credit to the people I scraplifted at a later time.

I scraplifted, Pat Bishop , from Challenge Masters- see her layout here.

Thank you Buffy for teaching me how to create this adorable gift card holder... I made one tonight to put earrings in for my coworker for her birthday tomorrow. Sorry for the dark photo, I couldn't take the pic outside since it was already dark.
Update on my grandma...
Thank you to everyone who has sent me their well wishes and prayers... they are working.. please keep it up!
I went to see her 1st thing this morning and she was "my grandma". She is exactly who she is to me... she didn't seem like she was in the hospital. Her spirits were high. When I arrived they were about to take many vials of blood, EKG, they forgot to do one vial, so they had to come back and take another one and she was so happy and positive. (She hasn't been this way to my family over the past week- it has been very negative.) I needed to see her they way I know her, it helps me! I got to meet the doctor today with my Aunt and Uncles. He seems to be wonderful. He is running many tests to try to figure out why my grandmother is getting so many clots. She has one in her lung that may take up to 6 months to dissipate. She had surgery last night to put a stent in her heart to help with clotting and protect her heart.
After listening to the doctor, I felt like I was on "House;" that in the next room, they have a whiteboard with her symptoms, and are trying to get to the bottom of why? She is not that old, she doesn't have any of the causes of blood clots and she has been on blood thinners. So why? I believe and have faith in the doctors that they will figure out why!
I am grateful that they are figuring out why and not just sending her home. (like her last doctor has done)
Seeing my grandma today
Listening to a story that I didn't know the entire story about my kids.
I scrapped the picture from the story that she told me today; but I am not posting it tonight because I am going to add her story to the layout. I will share it when I share the LO.
Playing "Life" with the kids tonight.
All of you who are praying and leaving me comments to wish me well. I really appreciate it!
