I've returned and I've got some stuff to share

from Stuff to Scrap designers!

The Scrappy Kat, Flower Scraps and Growing Pains Scrapped have a new collab out this week. It is perfect for scrapping your fall photos. Here are their previews:

And here is a bragbook page I made with Katina's portion of the collab:

Time off

I will be taking at least the next 2 weeks off from scrapping and blogging. Too much going on at home to be able to keep up with this.

If you are so inclined, please keep my husband in your prayers. He is to have a very serious back surgery on 9/18 (originally scheduled 9/11). It is anticipated to be a 6 hour surgery and now 3 surgeons will be involved. He will have a very long recovery, not expected to be able to return to work until early next year. And he works a desk job! My second daughter is scheduled to have minor oral surgery tomorrow, but she'll do just fine. It's just that she'll need some help this week and my poor hubby just can't do anything.

So, I'll be back to scrapping soon. You can't keep me away from it that long.

I'm back for now

I was gone for a few days last week. We dropped my youngest daughter off for her freshman orientation at college then travelled all the way down to Myrtle Beach for my nephew's wedding. My second daughter and son were both part of the wedding party. It was a fabulous wedding, but made for a whirlwind trip. And while we were travelling, my husband's neurosurgeon's office called him THREE times to reschedule his back surgery. It was originally set for this Friday, but after lots of finagaling and rescheduling due to the surgeon's schedule, it is now set to go for the following Friday, 9/16. That just happens to be my son's 20th birthday! LOL. Oh well, he is in a lot of pain and this needs to be done.

So all that to say, I'm back for now. I will be taking a little break from my CT duties after dh's surgery as I will not only be a home health nurse by profession, but also a personal home health nurse for my hubby.

I hope you all can join in tonight for the Speed Scrap at Stuff to Scrap. Lori and Heidi of Scraps 'N Pieces are leading it and Heidi has contributed nearly a full kit as the participation prize!

The details are on the flyer. Click on it to be taken to the speed scrap forum. Hope to see you there!

More Rainy Days and Rainbows

Have you been grabbing the great freebie kit from Nibble Skribbles and JWDigiscraps? Hop on over to their blogs to grab it, because after this week, it won't be a freebie anymore.

Here is another layout I made with Nibbles Skribbles portion of the kit.

As you can see, it is a very versatile kit. And just because I can, I created this layout into a QP for you. I hope you like it. Just click on it to be taken to 4shared to download.

Love Faith Hope

Several of the designers at Stuff to Scrap have created a fabulous new kit. But this isn't just any ole' collab kit. This is a charity kit to raise money for a 3 year old in Utah who is battling a brain tumor. I cannot even imagine the ordeal that this family is going through as I have been blessed with a very healthy family. Here is a link to an newspaper article about this girl and a link to a website created to help this family.

The collab kit is huge! Take a look at what is included:

Jamie, of Every Everafter Moment Designs as well as MandaK of Nibbles Skribbles have both contributed to this kit. Jamie gave me the links to create a layout to inspire you. Unfortunately, I had troubles with my computer dying and didn't get a chance to make this into a quickpage (oooh, that made me so mad), but maybe you'll get an idea of what you can do with this. Just the title of the kit brought to mind the "love" chapter in 1 Corinthians 13.

Even though I was given the links free, I have every intention of donating for this kit. I hope you'll take a minute and click on any of the previews above to be taken to Stuff to Scrap to purchase this kit. It is well worth it for this little child. Small amounts from many people can add up quickly.
