The eyes are on accordin folded paper so the eyes pop out when the card is open. All the older nieces and nephews got explopding candy. I have to make a trip to the dollar store today to buy some soft candy for the 2 little ones that are only 2 years old.

My friend Peggy always helping new scrapbookers.

Peggy and I have went to a few crops at Scrappin Friendzee and when ever she sees a new face in the store. She take time out and introduces herself and helps them. This lady and her little girl came into the store with a stack of pictures. The lady was looking for someone to scrapbook the pages for her. Peggy said that she should scrap the pages herself because it is such a personal thing. Well the lady did not expect to be scrapping that day, but her and her daugther did 2 - two page layouts and a title page and she was hooked. Can't wait to see the finished album.

The PINK crop was held at Scrappin Friendzee at 2201 Barataria Blvd, Marrero, Louisiana on Friday, Oct 8 and Saturday, Oct 9, 2009. I attend on Saturday and worked on cards for the troops. I completed 20 cards. While there we were asked to decorate a pink breast cancer ribbon. I did not bring anything pink all christmas cardstock and paper. But be hold I did search my paper container hoping that I had something to decorated with and I did, one magenta cardstock and a very small piece of a pattern pink cardstock. So yes I was able to create a little something to put on my ribbon. It was a memory ribbon for my mom, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 1991.
