A few older cards

I created these cards using some goodies from Memories in Uniform. They were published in SNR 's July issue :D The weekend was busy and I am a little partied out. 11 girls Friday night (plus Sarah and Alex) but the girls seemed to have a blast and all crashed early! (early as in about 2 am..) But we all survivied! and I even survived taking Meagan shopping 2 times in one weekend!

just a little layout

Playing around with some SEI from CHA and the little adorable day to remember is from Maya Road. FUN! NOt one of my most stellar projects but I was very "blocked" and needed to get some creative juices flowing. And don't forget if you are looking for some greeting cards check out my Candied Sunshine Card kit available at KNK.
If you are not a KNK member (you should be ...the Kits rock!) you can email Gerrianne at admin @ (without the spaces) to see to purchase this or one of KNK's other specialty kits :D

September 11

7 years ago! We as a nation watched, prayed and cried together! I remember that morning. coming into work sick as I had recently started in a new position and had missed most of the week before taking care of Meagan when she was sick. I remember someone had the radio on and we quickly found a TV station. I remeber thinking how in the heck did a plane hit a huge building. within minutes I knew it was not a mistake. I was devasted. I went home sick that day (and stayed home for many days with a 105 temp). Days spent watching the TV. unable to sleep. I remember the "empty skies" looking up and not hearing a single plane over head. very eerie! I remeber the anthrax attacks that followed and from the first case new this was an attack! We were a nation a in fear! afraid to fly! afraid to open the mail. but we stood proud to be a nation! Hoping we never forget those who lost their lives that day or those who are fighting for our country now!
