A good cause & a layout

Happy Hump Day ladies : )
Please be warned that this is a long post with pictures ; )
Last night SASHA posted THIS LINK and I could not help myself this morning to get this pile ready to go out in the mail Friday, someone had a great point on the forum, kids don't care that the papers are from 6 months ago or 1 year ago all the want to do is arts and crafts so this is why I am sharing this with you guys, if you have any papers that you have not used, pack them up and send them to this address Chloe Quinn Scrapbook Drivec/o A Million Memories2378 CharlemagneLong Beach, CA 90815 because I know it will make a child very happy.
So yesterday I went to THE PAPER NICHE and got my hands on the yummy Bo Bunny Delilah papers and did this

Bo Bunny
Angejolie and I having breakfast before she went to school : )

I used Distress Stickles on these flowers

Bo Bunny
And Distress Crackle Paint on this one.

I have to say that I don't think I have ever worked with their papers and I have to thank GINE'S 2 friends for coercing me to buy the papers as well as the stickers ; ) and if you 2 read this blog I just want to say how sorry I am for not remembering names but anyone who knows me will tell you that it takes me ages to remember names but I am good with faces : (

Since tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I want to share with you what I am thankful for

I am thankful for special moments like this one between a daughter and a father, Angejolie and her daddy reading her progress report from school, Montessori does not do report cards. When she sits with him to read she always puts her arm around him like that and let it be know she had an EXCELLENT report, I am such a proud mama : )

I am thankful for playful moments like this one between 2 sisters who sometimes fight hard but always love harder : )

I am thankful for a quite moment between a granpa and his granddaughter, moments like this one are few and far between since she is always on the move and I am thankful that she still has 1 grandpa since my dad passed of cancer when she was 16 days old.

I am thankful that my dear friend who was diagnosed with breast cancer 1 year ago celebrated Thanksgiving once again with us this past Sunday cancer free after having a double mastectomy this past January and who will be celebrating her 30'th birthday this Friday cancer free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am thankful for this man, my soul mate who after almost 12 years of marriage still loves me with all my craziness.

But most of all I am thankful for for the gift of motherhood.

I am thankful to have been blessed with such a wonderful, strong, loving mother, my in laws which are the greatest family a girl could ask for, my friends, my bloggy friends, our health, the roof over our heads and our health.
Thank you for always leaving such beautiful message and I wish you and your families a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Told ya it was going to be long :D :D :D
