I've been trying to get some spring cleaning done but it seems like I'm just spinning my wheels. Our new pup, Roxy, takes up so much of my time. She's just like having a two year old toddler around. She's always wanting attention, food, or to go to the bathroom. Of course watching to see what she is chewing on (whether it's an approved toy or NOT) is a constant concern. She was supposed to be my husband's truck buddy on the road, but he wasn't able to give her the attention she needed so she came home for me to train. He said her bladder was smaller than mine...LOL...and couldn't just pull over every time she needed to go.
Here is a preview of a paper in a kit I am working on.

This is my son, Weston, with Erika Mandler. Weston played the part of her husband, Dr. George Mandler, in the play "Courage and Love: The George and Erika Mandler Story". You can read about the play in my blog entry for April 14, titled: Amazing Weekend!

She is giving out lots of freebies so don't miss them! I am keeping this short and sweet so I can work some more on my blogging problem and get some more quick pages designed.
Update: I got it fixed! With alot of help from my friend Selena, aka:DigiSkrapNMomma!! Thanks Selena! I appreciate all of your time!
This is my latest creation I made for the Scrapbook Flair member icon challenge. I made the rose quite a long time ago by digital painting it. I really love it and decided to use it in making my blog header too.
UPDATE: My Rose icon received 1st place in the Scrapbook Flair member icon challenge. You can view the challenge HERE. I feel so honored to have it chosen from ALL the gorgeous icons that were entered. A special thanks to everyone who voted for it!!!!

George has passed away but Erika and their daughter, Camille, were at each and every performance these young people gave. Not a dry eye was in the place at the end of the four, 3-hour performances. She is an amazing woman and I pray that the message of acceptance of diversity wasn't lost on anyone. The play received attention of many towns around Missouri. People were bussed in from as far away as Kansas City (100 miles away) and St. Joseph (80 miles away). The auditorium was packed at every performance! Keep in mind that Chillicothe has a population of just under 10,000.
The lobby was set up with pictures of Erika, George, and their families. Banners were also displayed to help give everyone an ideal of the magnitude of the number of people who lost their lives so horribly.
Thank you, Lisa, for writing and directing this incredible, remarkable, never-to-forget drama of courage, love, and hope that doesn't die!

I am going to see my family this weekend. A four hour trip that is definitely worth it! My son, Weston, has the lead male role in his high school play this weekend. This is not your typical comedy or musical though. The play is about Dr. George and Erica Mandler's survival story during the holocaust. Guaranteed to be a tear-jerker! Weston told me to make sure you bring some kleenex! It is 3 hours long also. I can't wait to see it and write more about it afterwards.
