Please visit the Scrapping-4-Inclusion website and see how you can volunteer at a crop in your area or start one of your own. All proceeds benefit the Bubel-Aiken Foundation.
The Bubel/Aiken Foundation serves to bridge the gap that exists between young people with special needs and the world around them. They support communities with inclusive programs and together create awareness about the possibilities that inclusion can bring. They are creating communities where ALL children can learn, live, and play together.
Join me! Scrapping-4-Inclusion is being headed up by Laurie Weishar. She has a heart of gold and has done so much to make it easy to host a crop. There is a training manual, tips and helps to successfully host a crop and everything you need to know to get it off the ground and raising money for a great cause!
AND CHECK THIS OUT!!! Memory Makers Magazine is donating 30% of each magazine subscription to the foundation. But you have to sign up for the magazine HERE at the Scrapping-4-Inclusion website. Go there and get a subscription and see the ways you can help! Leave me a comment and let me know how you want to help!!

Last night I made these super easy crescent tacos. Get you some Pop 'n' Fresh crescent rolls. Take your taco meat and spoon a little bit on each of the biscuit triangles. Add some shredded cheddar. Roll 'em up and bake according to package directions. Yummie!! My kids and I loved them. It is a good little snack for your youngsters. But I should have made two packs of crescents, because with teens, they are always STILL hungry!!

Please don't judge me by my artwork this week. I was two weeks behind in our "Deck of Me Challenge" and it was one of those "get 'r done" days. Our prompt this week was to use only junk mail and create a card about the junk in our lives that we need to get rid of.
My junk is the mounting stacks of old magazine issues. All scrapbooking related!! I have given myself one month to rid the house of all old issues, once I go back through and make sure there isn't anything really good in there I HAVE to keep. LOL! I am doing a little each day and making progress!! Yipee!!
What's YOUR junk?

I need to de-clutter. There are some mags I will not get rid of....that is basically anything from Somerset Studio. Those are definitely keepers...such great works of art!! But those regular scrapbooking mags...I need to go through them and chuck them in the trash. Actually, Julie wants my leftovers...so she gets the stack after I comb through them. I have given myself one month to get it done and make a pile for her to come and get at my next crop. Wish me luck!!! LOL!!! :D

We had such a fun time on Saturday at my monthly crop. My friend Steph showed up who had never scrapbooked before(but she is a stamper). She was wondering why she hadn't come before...I could ask the same question, Steph!!! She was in heaven! Even had a good friend bring over her Cookie Lee Jewelry for us to try on...and buy!! Good Stuff!!!
The layout above was the only one layout I finished...actually it's not even done. I have to do the journaling!!! It is from when my DH and I celebrated our 20 year Anniversary in November. We went "down the road" to Disney for a few nights. (That's the beauty of living in Orlando!!)
Here's a few photos of the gals from the crop.
Debb and Yvonne talking about jewelry!

Yep, it's our Grand Opening week and we want YOU to come on over and take a peek, meet the Instructors and maybe even find a few new friends. I have been having a blast in the chatrooms!!! We get pretty goofy...OK, maybe it's just me getting goofy, but it is fun! And I HAVE met alot of new friends.
