I have been a VERY BUSY BUSY GIRL!!!!!!!!


And yes, it is morning.. it's almost 4 AM but I usually do my most creative work at this time.. the house is SOOO quiet! At any rate, I saw a posting on a Facebook friend of mine's (Mommys Crafty Side) stating she was looking for items to be donated to raise money. WHAT AN AMAZING COMPANY TO DO THIS!  If you are interested, I am SURE she would be thrilled to have more donations for the various charities she works with!! 
I spoke to Janine (a sweetheart to deal with!) and really, she had me at "need"! I offered to create some items that will be up for auction to raise money for Relay for Life, Team Garden of Hope. I created an album as well as a number of cards. The album I used was a SEI kit but I never follow directions so I created my own album with some of their stuff and some of mine :) All of the creations I made will be placed up for auction to raise money for Team Garden of Hope and I was truly honored to be able to participate in it. Below are pictures of my creations. I hope you like them and I would love to hear your feedback! Have a WONDERFUL MONDAY and somehow I am going to go to HURRICANE HARBOR
(a water park) this morning... like in a few hours... wish me luck! LOL

wow Melissa you have been busy and how sweet of you to make stuff for such a good cause. I love doing stuff like that. I did it a few years ago for relay for life and twice a year we have an auction at work and all the proceeds go to our charity fund, which buys food, school supplies, and Christmas gifts for needy families. I also made my M-I-L stuff for her Rebekkah's club. I love giving my things away to groups in need. So good for you.! You did a great job. I love the book. I need to make a few of those. Thanks for visiting my blog.I was already a follower, but came for a visit. tfs Tami
