I'm Still Here

Hi everyone!

Yes, we are still alive and kicking.  First I want to tell all me sweet friends who have checked up on me that I adore you.  Thank you for making me feel loved! :)

Let's see what have we been up to?

The girls and I were VBS (Vacation Bible School) leaders for a week at the end of June. What an absolutely rewarding experience.  I think I learn as much as the kids every year.

Then we had family in town for K's birthday. Happy birthday sweet girl!

My parents and sister came the Friday that VBS ended and stayed until the 5th of July. It was a great time to catch up and spend some quality time with them. Please keep my dad in your prayers as he will be going in at the end of this month for surgery to remove cancer from his prostate.

My family left and the next day DH's mom, dad, brother, sister-in-law and their two little ones came to visit. We had so much fun chasing those little ones around and celebrating K's birthday.

Monday we took some of K's friends tubing for her birthday and then they came over here for a sleepover.  It was a long day but she definitely had a blast. I have to say, I really like her friends. They are all such sweet girls.

Now we are in L mode.  Her birthday is in one week and I need to get all the details worked out for her party.  whew. :)

I have a card to share with you today.  One of our challenges over at Emma's Paperie this month was to use a book as an inspiration for a project.  Since my girls read a fair amount (especially L) I get e-mails about Middle School books.  It was in one of those e-mails that I saw this book.

Not sure if I want my girls to read it LOL but I did love the cover.  So this is the book I used as inspiration for my card. And this is my card.

You can find my supply list on the Emma's Paperie blog.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  Have a great week!!

Hey Lisa! Sounds like you are having a wonderful (and busy) summer so far! How nice that you've gotten to spend so much time with your family. Sorry to hear about your dad's surgery, though. Will definitely keep him in my thoughts.
Your card is so adorable. Bright and happy. Love the banner and love the mixed font. :)
