Busy Month of Celebrations

It seems every family has a month that is chock full of celebrations, more than any month, whether it's birthdays or anniversaries.  For our family, June is that month.  We have 10 birthdays, our anniversary, and because it's graduation month, we have 3 of those too. We're also honoring the 5th year of the passing of our dear nephew Carl, who was a very special person and now his spirit lives on with our families and his friends.
So, I've been creating cards as quickly as I can, and getting them out just as quickly so I haven't been able to snap photos of these cards with the exception for one.  You'd think knowing how many cards I needed this month  I would start the month before.  Hah!  Here's a rush card I made for my husband for our 40th anniversary.
I got some wonderful RAKS in the mail from Joy of "Joy of Crafting"! Big mahalo Joy!
All I did was participate in Flat Leilani again, this time with her Easter bunnies surrounding her.  It was fun and the grand kids thinks it's cool that Grammie still plays with paperdolls.
It felt like Christmas opening this box of goodies
I love K &  Co.
I heard this is a hot item
These items from 'Smash' are hot and just in at Ben Franklin Crafts.  I hope I have time this weekend to check out the other 'Smash' items.
I can't wait to play with my goodies, so I'll say good bye for now.  Warm thoughts to everyone.


  1. What great goodies you got! I too love the Smash Book line! I got a whole box full of them and I even went out to get more! LOL! You'll totally love them!!! Happy 40th Anniversary!!!

  3. Hi Grammie! Congrats on your 40th Anniversary! I remember thinking last year, that you and your husband must've gotten married when you were both about 13,'cause you sure don't look old enough to be married that long! Have a wonderful weekend!
