Here's what's coming UP!! Can't wait!

ONLY 5 more days until the fun begins!  This is my 5th year (or maybe 6th) to attend the most fantastic Scrapbooking event ever!!  I get to go back to Creative Escape in Phoenix and enjoy the inspiration of so many talented designers and teachers!  This event has been a yearly addiction-- and thru it I have enjoyed gettting to know my friend, Lyn from AZ.  WE have had lots of fun and we met when another great friend of mine, Sharon and I were neighbors to her.  We have lots of laughs and we always love coming home with our awesome creations.  Super fun!  so-- I am busy packing and getting all set to enjoy the weekend again!  Another great benefit is my time with Debbie = my extra long time friend,  my chauffeur and shopping advisor!!  It won't be long now!!

It wasn't all that long ago that THIS girl was a little 8 year old angel!  This is the favorite photo taken at 8 by Frank Frost!  It is still in my living room today!  BUT -- this weekend, this girl turned 19!!  She is headed off to an adventure every 19 year old would love to have.  She is packing her bags for a Study Abroad semester in Uraguay!  Lots of details and bittersweet thoughts this weekend, but mostly a very excited anticipation of all that God has for her over in South America!  We can't wait to hear all about the fun and places she will see!  Our prayers will be for safety, and loads of learning God's faithful presence as she branches out in an adventure.  She has grown to be a very capable young woman and will have lots to share with all the people she meets. 
Here she is today:   Happy 19th!  We love you, Jocelyn Danielle!
