Hectic, Sad and Grateful

I have a lot going on this week.......First a very dear friend of our family passed away on Friday from cystic fibrosis. She was 41 and one of the oldest survivors of this disease. Dee Dee was always a fun and beautiful person and she will be so missed.

I also have jury duty this week. It couldn't come at a worse time right now. I was called 18 months ago and got to be dismissed due to my Dad being in the hospital with lung cancer, so I guess it is time for me to do my civic duty.

Thirdly, I am grateful for my family and friends, both in the flesh and my cyber friends that I have grown to love. Ya'll keep me going and I "loves" ya!

Here is the Color Challenge at The Outlawz this week. It is a fun color palette, and the Jammin' January add in is to add embossing. It can be either heat embossing for folder embossing so come out and play!

Here is my interpretation of the FAB color palette chosen by the very talented Guylou! I have the awesome opportunity to work with four fabulous women on our team as well as a big ole' group of fantastic ladies!

I heat embossed the button, the far left triangle and the sentiment inside. The image is by Kenny K who is our generous Color Challenge sponsor this month. One more reason for ya'll to enter the challenges this month! The winner will receive fabulous digis of their choice! You also get to go into the pot for wonderful prizes offered by our generous monthly sponsors at The Outlawz. Be sure to check out the side bar on our site!

All the rest isn't worth the time. May you find peace in the upcoming days. Love you too-cyber friend : ) xoxo Big hugs girl.
