I have the bestest besties eva!!!

Good morning!!! We had a crazy, crazy weather here in Massachusetts yesterday! We had tornado's!! That's right. The poor people in Western Mass were hit hard! So crazy!!! We had an insane storm last night, but no tornado's thank goodness!!

This weekend is the Relay for Life walk (walk for cancer), I will be participating with my family and friends. We did it last year and it was amazing. Kel, Dawn and I have had close family members pass away from cancer, so its a cause close to our hearts. As I am sure many of your have been affected by this awful dreadful disease.

I am not good with raising money, so I was trying to come up with clever ways to do so. Over the weekend I came up with a brilliant idea and my girls rose to the challenge without a thought!! Thank you Kel, Dawn and Susan, you rock.

I thought we could make 8x8 scrapbook pages and sell them at the walk. I asked them to make 5 each. Here are a few, we will be showing the rest of them over the next few days. Kelly's is the first one. Dawn's is the second one and the last two are mine. The one that has the year 2010 will have a picture from the walk last year and displayed on the the table, showing the non-scrapbookers how easy it is to just put a picture on it and be done!!

  2. Terrific idea and beautiful LOs. You all did a great job. You are so right about cancer it hits everyone in some way. Thanks for doing this. I am also glad you aree all safe. Most of my family is from Western MA made some phone calls and everyone is safe so far Chicopee missed the devastating parts of the storm.

My daughter goes to Springfield College, and the pictures of the dorm that they keep showing, was the same dorm that I moved her out of a couple of weeks ago!! They are now saying that it is in danger of collapsing!! IDK what they will be doing in Sept, cause alot of other buildings were damaged also. So glad you guys are all good, and good luck with the Relay For Life! karen♥
