A very special day!

MY oldest grandson's very first official Baseball game! AND CAN I SAY I AM VERY PROUD OF MY GRANDSON, Jason Michael jr. His team lost but they gave it their best and with a score of 7-15 My grandson made 3 of his teams 7 runs! YEP I am proud! he kept his head in the game (never left for one minute, even when nature called, whoops! hey he is only 7 (well in a couple weeks!) Now don't tell him I told you about that but I thought you might notice the wet shirt in some of the photos!

I also want to say it was freezing out! AND I MEAN FREEZIng! we were wearing gloves and winter coats and freezing! SO can you imagine those poor baseball players, especially if they somehow got "WET" burrrrrrrrr~
OH and I just have to add in one of the cheering section!

Today I though I would share with you an altered item I just made!I know it is not Christmas time but I was in the mood. This is a cone available at Michaels, JoAnns etc. or you can use actual thread cone. you will need to punch a hole in two opposite sides of the large open end of the cone. Then I used my favorite paste to put on the scrapbook pattern paper with. YOU can use what ever paste you want, modge podge etc. Then I inked the edges of the cone to add a antiqued look! I then inked the holly leaves and berry technique tuesday chipboard and glued that on. I also added A Joy rub-on and (on side not pictured) a peace on earth rub-on! Inside for now I stuck in some greenery a fake candy cane a few bells etc. (at Christmas time I want to do chocolates, candy canes and a gift certificate) oh and the red and white ribbon threaded through the two holes to hang it!

sorry I never got the layout up yesterday I am really being picky with this one!

AND SORRY THiS post is so late today! HERE IS MY DAY SO FAR! I had a migraine last night so could not finish the layout, woke up with it still today! IT was calming down a bit so I decide to go outside and put seed in the birdfeeders and I can't explain how I did it very well but end up cutting my thump open on the rusty pipe that the one bird feeder is on.

Well it did not need stitches, I knew that right away even though it was bleeding but guess what was not up to date! So off I went for a tetanus shot! Then while waiting in the doctors office the headache comes back full force so I am back to suffering from a migraine but I have to finish my layout and matching 3 cards!`

So I am drawing a name quickly! I was going to take photos of Noah doing it but Sorry just not up to it so I am just doing it quickly now!

Congratulations JENN.... Now remember all three will be entered into the April 16th final Drawing! JENN if you will Pm your address to me at Scrap 4 life!

Happy Tuesday!!! WiN A RAK!!!!!!!

I thought I would share how GOD touched me on Saturday!
Saturday I was in charge of a Ladies Brunch for a Zone Ladies Days out for Our District . This involves 8 churches from our district.

We had a theme of "TURNING YOUR SCRAPS INTO SCULPTURES" which is what we do in scrapbooking but also is what we can do with so many parts of our lifes!

The hall was decorated wonderfully, my centerpieces came out great IMHO and all was set! but barely anyone attended! WHAT HAPPEN, I don't really know but what I do know is
OUR SPEAKER DIANE BAILEY was awesome, she touched me, she touched others with what she had to say about "TURNING YOUR SCRAPS INTO SCULPTURES" Diane admits to being one of the least crafty persons but she turns her scraps into sculptures with the way she uses her gifts to minister to others, to worship the Lord. To that I can testify as I have seen Diane in action!

The guest Singer, Missy Jones was excellent also and the song she chose was excellent to tie into our theme.

My wonderful helper, Tina Larson was able to acquire some Tape sculptures from her High school students at Athens High school for part of our Decorations!

JUST wondering what Scraps that the Lord gives you USE TO TURN INTO SCULPTURES! THINK ABOUT IT AND IF YOU ARE NOT USING THEM.... REMEMBER how much you hate to throw away those scrapbook Pattern Paper scraps.... I am challenging you to make a layout out of scraps about turning "YOUR SCRAPS INTO SCULPTURES" I will draw a name for a rak out of all the links I get with layouts for my challenge. I will post the rak later! (Sorry but right now I can't think of a rak and I want it to be good!)
