Well - here i am again - THINKING that i'd updated this several more times last week - but apparently those were INNER DIALOGUE discussions AGAIN and no action was taken!! :)



This post COULD be a long one - as well as RANDOM so hang on!!!



OKay - i couldn't keep this on the "dl"...for those of you attending crop*a*ganza...look at what we got in the mail today - from our friends in Topeka at Scrapbooks, etc.!?!?!!!!





She made us these GORGEOUS flamingos!!! There are a limited number of these, so get them while you can!! They will be for SALE at Crop*A*Ganza, in our booth - we're not including them in your goodie bags this time, as we have seen soooo many of them go to waste - so you can purchase them at our booth for your PAGES!!! Renee is going to be making the CUTEST flamingo page you've EVA seen with the large flamingo!!! cANt WaiT!!!!



YES - there will be opening shopping for those of you that aren't able to attend ganza - come at any time - we don't have designated times set up - so come on out!!! We are excited to have some new vendors this time as well - so come check them out!!!


I am working on sending out a Crop*A*Ganza email for those of you that are attending - so be looking for that!! This is THE week to get your pictures ordered if you order them from an online distributor......and need to have them mailed to you - so that you don't pay out the @#)@(#* for shipping!!!!



We had a wonderful Anniversary week!! Thank you so much to all of you that sent the sweetest cards, emails and wishes!!! We were surprised with this HUGE HUMAN Balloon from our good friends Keri and Jennifer!! Thank you ladies!!!
Lauren and Renee came by to join us for the festivities on Wednesday.....Lauren decided to make "CAKE"!!! HA!! I love it!! Renee even ended up "sorting" on her day OFF!!
Jennifer's friends (us included!) held a surprise birthday party for her here on Saturday night....it was a Sock Monkey theme!! This was the SUPER YUMMY cake that Jodi made!! They were DELICIOUS!!! :)


Okay - serious business here.....our friend Tracy Shaffer has a friend that she is needing our prayers and help with....please read on for more information as well as click on the link to HER blog for updates on this little guy!!!



Mikey before:

During one of his treatments:

Michael Yell, age 9, going into 4th grade. Has Hodgkin's Disease.
Jennifer is his mom, she's a single mom, who had to quit her job to take care of him.
He has one sister named Katie.


We are going to have a 12x12 album. We need pages for general pictures, doctors visits, donations received, benefit dinner given, baseball, etc....

For everyone that donates 1 - 12x12 layout I will give them a "ticket" and if their number is drawn on Sunday they will win a prize for helping me out. If figured it was easier to do it this way then try to do a judging of all the pages. And, they get 1 ticket for each 12x12 page they do.

I will post the details on my blog too along with the pictures and people can email me and I can send them a picture too. And, they don't have to have a picture on the page to participate they can just leave it blank and we can add photos later.




((i really think this is a brave little guy and his mom too - we can all find the time to make ONE 12x12 layout for them to display all of his pictures in, can't we?!?!...for more questions - you can email Tracy!!.....if you're NOT attending Ganza and would like to participate - you can drop your layouts off at the store next time you're in!))







Need something to do this weekend?!?! Well, as you may or may not know - our family is also "co"-owners in the Benton Airport - now called "Stearman Field"....well, they are building houses out there now and are having a HUGE shindig ALL day on Saturday!!! Come out and join us!!! There will be MOONWALKS for the kids in the afternoon - breakfast - dinner - live band - lots and lots of airplanes, fireworks, and even skydivers!!!! You can find out some more information here!! http://stearmanfield.com/





Oh - we got an email from our friend Lori Pauls - she and some friends of hers are heading up to McPherson for a few days at Maple Memories and wanted to know if we'd like to join in!! She has some openings, here's the information!! If you're interested - you can give her an email and ask more questions or rsvp!!!

I'm FOR sure that there's something else that i'm forgetting to mention - but my head is spinning right now and i can't concentrate....so for now - i'm closing but if something else comes to me - i'll be back!! :) have a great week!!

I love the Pink Birdies too! Can't wait to make a page - I sure hope you have lots of those that say CAG on them. I almost think that this is the best shirt design ever for CAG. I am soo ready to crop after all of the stress in my life lately. See you girls soon!
