Kits on Webstore / Update on Donna / Ham Lasagna

Well, today I finally got one of the Disney kits up on the webstore ( http://scrapbook-store-scrappersaurus.com/didolaandbom.html ) that our very own Design Team Member Heather Landry created.  We have several kits left over from some of the great workshops we had done in the stores, and I'm trying to re-write the instructions and put pics so I can sell them as kits now.  I chose to put the Disney double-page 12x12 layout kit up first because, well, its DISNEY!!! LOL!!!  Lots of people are planning their summer vacations to Disney already, and this layout and mini album kit will give them a good start on scrapping their trip.  Next, I think I'll put up some of the unclaimed Layout of the Month kits.  I know, it's hard to believe there are actually any left, especially since so many people who were NOT members would routinely ask after the kits were sent out "just in case" there were any "left over"...  Then I plan on putting up kits using the embossing pastes (by special request!).  I'm including just about all materials needed to finish the kits, and all you would need to have is your adhesive and tools.  Complete written instructions and photos of finished samples are included to help guide you.

Also, I want to update everybody who has been praying for my friend, Donna.  For those of you who were unaware, Donna has been my best friend for 19 years, and she was recently told her heart simply was not capable of doing the job it needed to in order to keep her alive, and she needed a heart transplant.  They told her there was nothing else they could do for her.  She even traveled a whole day to visit a special advanced cardiac clinic in another state, only to find they couldn't help her, either.  Then she was told she didn't qualify for a heart transplant because her body mass index was (minutely!) higher than they allow.  I cried a lot, and thought a lot about what I could do for my friend.  All I COULD do, was to pray, and to get as many people as possible to pray with me for her.  So, that's what I did.  I sent out emails to relatives, other friends, customers, and even manufacturers--anyone and everyone that I thought MIGHT pray for her.  I asked that she be put on prayer chains and have candles lit.  I am EXTREMELY happy to let you all know that YOUR PRAYERS ARE WORKING!!!  She called and told me that she went to another doctor and was told she didn't NEED a heart transplant, and that although she had serious cardiac issues, he believed that he could help her rehabilitate herself back to a healthy condition.  He put her on a special diet (for better cardiac health, not for weight-loss) and told her how to exercise daily, among other things.  She went from not being able to shower and dress herself to being able to walk several blocks at a time now!!!  THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU all of you that prayed for her!!!  PLEASE KEEP PRAYING for her, because she's still not out of the woods.  I will keep you all updated.

Oh, and to all of you who laughed when I said I was going to make a ham lasagna--IT ROCKS!!!  Felix told me he loved it better than "regular" lasagna!!!  I was amazed!!!  I went online and did a search for recipes, then kind of did what I always do--I combine them in my own way, and make my own version.  Well, this one was definitely a winner!  Email me if you want MY recipe.

Until next time, happy scrapping and stamping!



  1. Hope everything turns out ok for your friend. Will pray for her. Hope everything ok with you and your family.

  2. I am so very glad to hear that Donna is improving! I am still praying for her Dee!
