Invitation to join more than 3.5 million people who are dedicated to eliminating cancer in our lifetime

Relay For Life® is a fun-filled overnight event designed to bring together those who have been touched by cancer. At the event, we celebrate survivorship and raise money to help the American Cancer Society in its mission to save lives, help those who have been touched by cancer, and empower individuals to fight back. During the event, teams of people gather at schools, fairgrounds, or parks and take turns walking or running laps. Each team tries to keep at least one team member on the track at all times.

I encourage you to participate in an event in your community. If you cannot attend an event but would like to sponsor me; please visit my page. There you will see how much I have raised to date.... as of today, I am ahead of my team of three... Whoo Hoo! I'm ahead! It is my goal to raise at least $200. I would really like to raise more but I will be satisfied with the $200.

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. I hope to see you at the event...

Vacations Over

Bummer. My vacation is over and I didn't get near as much done as I had hoped...guess that happens some times. I did get all the gardens in though and that was a major accomplishment in itself. I can't believe how hard the ground was. There hasn't been much rain to speek of and it is hot. It is indicative of how the summer is going to be I guess. My poor water bill is going to be sky high watering the gardens if this lack of rain continues. My sister came in from Az this past week and it was nice having her here. We don't get to see each other very often and we all miss her. I will have to put together some scrap book pages of her and post later. I did manage to get three scrapbook pages done though this week. I used Happy Summer kit by Anja J. of Hooked on Digi Scrap. What a cool kit. The colors are like watermelon and very summery. I enjoyed working with the kit and will use the kit alot as the summer goes by. If you like the kit you can get it at Anja's Store. The layouts that I did were kind of nastalgic. One in memory of my mom for mothers day. I sure miss her. Grandma got one, she is such a sweetie. Nearing 90 years old she is still as pretty as she ever was. Then there is one on my baby sister. The quote on hers is from 1 Hour Scrap but I don't have the designers name for it.
