For this layout, I used Creative Scrappers Sketch #126 which you can find here.  What a wonderful inspiration this site is!!!  I've had these papers in my stash for a while so I can't even tell you what they are but I love doing western themed pages!  I made another of the "pleated flowers" and then I cut some stars out of some jeans one of the boys had outgrown.  That "saddle up" stamp is from a Unity stamp set.  These pictures are from back in 2001 while we were stationed in Germany and we went to this rodeo on one of the military bases there.  It was so much fun!

Life Is Good

I made this layout for a Scraplift Challenge over at Crop Chocolate.  I used the Life is Good paper pack from Echo Park and I have to say I've purchased several of the Echo Park kits over at Crop Chocolate and I have loved everyone of them.  They coordinate together so well and I could sit for hours trying to find papers to go together so I love that they have done this for me!

Prayers Please

I'm so sorry I haven't posted anything for a while.  I have company here and they are staying in my "craft room" so I haven't really done anything for the last couple of weeks.  I did want to stop in and ask all of you sweet followers to say a prayer for my Dad.  You may have seen me post at one time or another about the fact that he is battling lung cancer.  He just finished a round of radiation and is continuing with chemo but he has been feeling really rotten lately and I'm really worried about him.  For those of you that are separated from family and friends by many many miles (in my case a big ocean, too) you know how hard it is to be so far away especially when something like this is happening.  I thank all of you for stopping by and I would truly appreciate your prayers for my Dad.
