These are my thoughts, however I may quote those who are smarter and wiser than I am.

Yes, We are Proud to Be an Apache!

Occasionally, a group of us who attended Encina High School (back when it was a GOOD school) get together. By occasionally, I mean any excuse we can think of ie: birthdays, warm weather, end of school year, or when we're bored with our every day lives…

So last nite we did…ie;  someone had a birthday, the warm weather arrived and our college-aged kids are now out of school and we were bored with our every day lives.

I do love getting together with our group…we have endured a lot since our High School days within our group..marriages, death, new relationships, etc. And we can truly commisserate with each other and give new perspective to why our years at Encina were either the happiest of our lives or the worst.

For some reason last night, confession time appeared after a few bottles of wine, Lemon Drop martinis and dinner.
Most of those there told me they were actually AFRAID of me! I found that sooo funny! Not because I wore studs, boots and carried a weapon or anything like that. Just the unknown about me…even though we had classes together, went to school games, dances, and took part in many assemblies showing our Apache pride, they all knew my name, but didn't "know" me. Hence, fear.

I had to set them straight…I never killed anyone and buried the bodies in our football field. I never dumped a shorter person in the garbage cans. And my one and only attempt to have a Kager party fell through because my grandmother needed a perm and my dad wanted to paint our bedroom ceilings instead of going out of town, NOT because I wanted all that beer for myself and my boyfriend!

It was nice to clear the air after all these years indeed.

You and Me Together….Purchase for a Cause

From  June 1st- through the 30th, you can  purchase the You & Me scrapbooking kit for only $15 (a retail value of $34.95) and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Red Cross spring 2011 Floods and Tornadoes relief operations.
With the You & Me kit, you’ll create two fully embellished two-page layouts using the included instructions,  papers, D-sized stamp set and accessories. 
At only $15, this kit is more than 50% off the retail price. 
You’ll win by getting the kit at a phenomenal price, and those in the weather devastated regions will benefit from your charitable contribution.  

I am so PROUD that both of my favorite companies are doing everything we can to help those in our home states during these trying times.
Together we can make a difference, together we are stronger! 
And to see how VSP is helping out, check out this video from their Blog!

June Blog Hop!

Hi all!
Sorry it's been a while since I've posted….things are, well…end that.

April was my FIL's 80th birthday and although we couldn't be there for the surprise party, he was lucky enough to have most of the family there!
Hence, the card I made for him was used with the Lucky Paper Kit from CTMH.
Here's my feeble attempt…
Here's the whole kit and all the papers you receive with it…
Now HOP on over to Betsy's Blog to see her really cute projects!
