Happy Earth Day (a day late!)

I've been busy creating welcome packs for our Woman's retreat this weekend. I did the same little candy bags, except now I have my nestibilities to use. So much fun!! My wizard has been crankin' out a lot of shapes. I'm so glad I have a some awesome friends on our leadership team who have been hard at work to make sure everyone feels very welcome. Thank you Lucy, Kris, Becky, Jodi, Sue and Sandi!! You guys are the best!! They made the cutest notebooks while I was gone, to be added to the welcome kit. Later today, when my Spellbinder's die comes, I'll be finishing the name, place cards. I got the idea from Christy who is also sending me the die. Thanks girl!

I had to take a wee break from all the kits and create a thank you card for Mind Mind's Eye. I've been itchin' to dive into my stuff. You'd think I have enough ribbon but I really couldn't find any that matched this paper nicely. Hmmm....might have to get some. I'm really lovin' this Penny Lane line.

Patter Paper: My Mind's Eye, Stamp: Hero Arts, Ink: Color Box, Dies: Spellbinders (Labels Three S4-189 and Flower Creations S4=072)

I hope you all had a wonderful Earth Day. Ashley picked out her Bible story last night and it was the Genesis 1:1. As we were praying, I realized how approriate it was to have read the story of creation on Earth day! We both giggled. All of us are so grateful to God for this beautiful planet He has given us called Earth.

To make it more memorable (and this wasn't planned, it just happened this way,) we released Kelsey's butterflies in the morning. That evening the kids heard a frog in our water feature. They have never seen a frog on our property before. Of course they wanted to catch it. So they did. I thought for sure A.J. was going to fall in. I told him I would laugh so hard if he did! (no worries, it's shallow...LOL!) So, after a few photos and holding the frog, Ashley kindly reminded us that it was Earth day and we should let him go. She wants to be a vet when she grows up. She is our animal lover!

I'll be leaving for a few days on our retreat. Hope and pray your weekend is blessed!
