Erica's Graduation

I finally have gotten caught up to June with my layouts for 2010.  Where did the time go!?!  My granddaughter, Erica,  has grown up so quickly and I hate it.  Her brother, Jake, is doing the same thing.  She just turned 18 and has finished her first semester at Western Michigan University and Jake is 15 and is a freshman at Gull Lake High School. 

Erica Graduated in June from Gull Lake High School and I began doing the layouts of her graduation this morning.  The large picture is actually one of her senior pics and was the invitation they sent out for her grad party.  The who, what, when and where was on the back of the picture.  I loved the picture and figured I use it as a lead in to her grad pages.  Here are the first two I finished today. 

The little graduate girl was designed, cut and pieced by me with my Pazzles machine.  The Font used for the titles was Murray Hill Medium.  It was a lot of fun making drawing this little gal on my computer and then cutting and piecing her.  I think she is cute.


Here is page two of the 2 page layout.


A close up of the grad girl.

3 Generations of nuts!!!

My daughter (Tammy) and granddaughter (Erica) came over and my hubby decided he wanted to take some pictures of us together.  The entire time we could not stop laughing cause Erica kept cracking jokes.  I look totally awful in these pictures. We had a great time just goofing off.  The bear tag was designed by me with my Pazzles machine.  I chalked the bears and popped dotted the snouts. As a Merry Christmas to my Pazzles friends I am giving away the cut file for the tag.  Happy Holiday to everyone.

Lazy Days

I finally am feeling good enough to actually do some layouts.  I am so far behind this year and am still working on May pictures.  This layout is of my Granddaugher, Erica, and her dog, Molly.  I loved the relaxed look of the pictures so used my Cricut Just Because cartridge to cut the Lazy Days title. The paper is from one of my DCW stacks of which I cut the flower out of an extra sheet and popped it. It is a pretty simple layout - but I like it with these pictures.


Here is a two page layout of Erica and Molly playing around.  For this one I used the Indie Art cartridge for the Smack title and Paper Pups for the dog bone and dog.

PET Scan was good!

I went to the Cancer Center this morning and the PET can showed no cancer cells!!!  The spot on my hip is benign! I'm so relieved as the fear this past week just kept creeping in. I see a radiologist tomorrow and if I have to have any it will be minor! Thank you for the prayers and yelling my THANKS TO GOD!

The emotions that happen during this process are so hard to put into words.  I feel so blessed at this point and have been so fearful at times.  I cannot imagine going through an experience like this without my faith.  I am so excited today at the great news that I can hardly sit still.  Maybe now I'll be a bit more focused and actually be able to scrap and get back to blog hopping a bit.  Thank you all for your support! 

At this point, I think I am going to become a volunteer at the Cancer Center.  It would be good to help others and I feel like I have been so blessed that it is something I need to do.  LIFE IS GOOD!!!

Vintage Card

I have to go for my PET Scan tomorrow and am pretty nervous about that.  I do not do small spaces well!!! In order to keep myself busy today while hubby was watching the Nascar race, I decided to try and do the Cricut Circle Challege and make a birthday card for my sweet aunt Jewel in Ohio who turns 80 Saturday. She is an avid quilter and sewer, and loves Dogwood trees, therefore the card was made with that in mind.

The challenge this week for the Cricut Circle Blog was to create a card using three vintage elements and a sketch submitted by Jane Eubank.  I do not do well with Vintage cardmaking or layouts.  I tend to create more clean, crisp, and simple lines.  I love the looks of other's vintage items and think my talent is just not in this area.  On the inside of the card is her name, 80 and Happy Birthday cut with Nifty Fifties font.

I used George (Shape for card), Nifty Fifties (Sewing Machine), Simply Charmed (Quilting Items) and Sentimentals (Scissors) for the cuts. The Rosette was done using my Pazzles Machine and the Dogwood flowers are Jolees. The papers were scraps that I have had and I am determined to use my scarps up if possible.

Happy Birthday Erica

I worked a bit yesterday on a birthday card for my Granddauther's 18th birthday. I used Design Studio and created a shape card using Forever Young.  I just don't know how she got to be 18 so quickly.  The cut file is attached if you would like it.  Once cut, I used flower petals to decorate the skirt. The idea for the petals on the skirt was from someone on the Cricut board and I can't remember who did it to give credit to here.


Here is a picture of the cut file...

Cancer Center

I've had a few emails and PM's about my progress so thought I would post it here. Yesterday I had my appointment at the cancer center.  I certainly found out how blessed I have been. The type of breast cancer I had was Negative Estrogen Receptor and the size was 1 centimeter.  This type of breast cancer is not as treatable as the Estrogen type. Just goes to show how God played into all of this. My surgeon decided to aspirate a fluid filled cyst and went below the cyst and pulled out some tissue to biopsy.  The fact that the spot was so small and he got a piece of the cancerous tissue is amazing to me.  I do feel very, very blessed.

I now have to see the radiologist to find out whether they feel I need radiation treatments or not.  The full body scan I had before surgery shows that I have a spot on my left hip that I will be having a PET scan in a couple of weeks to assure us it is not cancer.  My oncologist does not think it is but wants to be sure.  ME TOO!   I am also going to have genetic testing in order to inform my children/grandchildren of their risks of this stupid disease.

Anyway... I was really nervous about this visit and everyone was so kind that it went really well.  At least now I'm on the pathway to the rest of the story and I pray the path just get better and better. 

Gotta go make a card for my granddaughter's 18th birthday tomorrow.  Hard to believe she is that old and it will be fun making this card.  Hugs to you all!!!

Couple of Cards...

I must admit my crafting is a bit slower right now than normal. I did get two cards finished that will be sent out to two gals fighting breast cancer. My prayers are with them and their families.  They are pretty simple, but my heart was there anyway. Kelly and Patti my thoughts and prayers are with you both!

This one was done using the Home Accents cartridge for the word Faith.

This one was done using the Elegant Cake Cartridge for the Title.

WOW! Check out Enfy's Site...

Rosettes

I have seen the Rosettes made with the Tim Holtz die and really liked them.  I did not like that they were so large and not resizable. I found a tutorial of how to make a similar Rosette and decided I could do this with my Pazzles machine.  I used the scissors feature that is included in the Pazzles program to create different looks for the rosettes.  The main thing I like is that they are resizable.  I am including the link for the video tutorial and the WPC and WPC14 files here if you want them.  The video will show you how to put the rosette together once cut.

It's Official - I'm Cancer Free

I just got the call from my surgeon... the path report was good. I am now cancer free! He said there were precancerous cells in both breasts as well as the cancer spot in the left so it was a great decision to have both removed. All 8 of the lymph nodes were clear. I have been thanking God for the past half-hour and am just sooooo happy!!! God is Great!!! See how powerful the prayers have been!

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE PRAYERS!

What a difference a short time makes...

I've been sitting here this morning looking at all of the beautiful cards that I have received. I am still kinda numb mentally due to how fast everything happened due to this awful, dreaded Breast Cancer disease. I honestly don't know how well I would have dealt with this without my crafting friends.  You all have helped both me and my hubby feel so blessed.

Today I go to the surgeon's office and hopefully, they can remove the three bags that I have hanging from my body.  Those things seem to be so much in the way and make the exercises that are necessary more difficult.  I think I will feel so much more free once they are gone and the rest will heal in time. I so miss crafting and hope that next week I'll start being able to do a bit.

Things I have learned about this disease is that people are so afraid to discuss the fact that I had my tata's removed.  I have had friends ask me if it makes me feel less of a woman.  WHAT!?!!!!  No way.  I told them that I think in the US we put way to much emphasis on breasts being a sexual item and that in many other countries they are considered a nurturing tool for feeding children.  I think sometimes we get way too worried about aging and parts of our bodies and what makes us whole.  For me - God, life, family and friends make me whole. The wrinkles and lack of breasts don't alter who I am at all inside - only outside. 

I know I can have reconstruction surgery in time and at this point, I just want to heal and decide that later on.  Maybe I can be another Dolly!  hehe!!!  I'm 5'2" - 125 lbs so probably wouldn't be able to stand up with the EEE size.

I'm not sure what God's plan for me is; but, I want to help others in some way.  I know the answers will come as I continue through this journey. 

Anyway... Mostly just thinking out loud this morning.  Hope you all are having a wonderful day!!!

I'm Home...

Your prayers worked!!!!  I am home now and pretty loopy still; but, just wanted to get on here and tell you how much your prayers and thoughts meant to both me and Ron.  Ron said he has never felt so surrounded by love as he has during this process.  I totally understand what he is saying.  I got my coffee today and ewwww.... hospital coffee is yucky.  My daughter, Tammy, is on her way over with a French Vanilla Coffee and if I can stay awake, I totally plan to enjoy it. 

The doctor said this morning there was absolutely nothing in the two nodes he removed and that the spot with the cancer was actually pretty small at this point. He said it would have grown rapidly due to the type of cancer - he told me and I honestly don't remember.  duh!  I don't really care as long as it is gone.  I will now be a patient at the cancer center and they will decide whether I need a bit of Chemo to make sure it is totally gone.  I am pretty sore, but nothing that can't be handled considering it is GONE!!!! 

Love you all and thank you so much for the hugs! I have felt them all the way through this past week.  Still keeping Monique in my prayers and pray her results are good also.    Hope there are no spelling errors here - if so... ignore them.

Today is the day...

I have had so many emotions going on in my head this morning it is unreal.  I'm having a bit of separation anxiety due to the "girls" leaving home.  I know this has to be; but, man it is a tough thing to accept sometimes. This week has went by so quickly that everything seems like a blur. I go to the hospital at 12:30 p.m., surgery is at 2:30 p.m. and should be done at 4:30 or so.  My hubby and daughter will be there and Tammy will be sending an update to someone who will update the Cricut Boards.  She does not blog so not sure she will be able to update here today.  I will try and get this updated as soon as I can.

A friend sent me the following words yesterday and another has offered to make me some cuts from the Pink Journey cart and I'm going to put it in a frame as a reminder of the strength that you all have given me.

Cancer is so limited...
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
It cannot quench the Spirit.

The way I figure it, Cancer is not good for much of anything so I am best to just get rid of it.  Before I start getting around here to get ready to go, I wanted to stop in and thank you all so much for the prayers and uplifting messages and converstations.  They have meant a lot to me.  Today the tears have came full force and have gone as quickly as they came. My faith and prayers are consistent and true. This will be over soon and I'll be back on here posting and creating as soon as I possibly can.  I will be thinking of all of the wonderful hugs I have received from far and wide today and those thoughts and the love of my family and friends will get me through this.

Oh Yeah... What are they thinking making me go without coffee for so long... ewwwww!  It ain't gonna be pretty!  First thing I'm asking for when I'm done with surgery - is COFFEE!!!!

Keep Smiling!!! Love you all - HUGS

Test Results so Far...

We just returned from the Surgeon. All of the scans and tests show that the cancer has not spread. I do have the most aggressive type of cancer and thank God we have caught it early. I kinda figured that last Friday when the surgeon personally called and set it up for this week. He is even coming in on his day off tomorrow to do the surgery.

He is going to remove both breasts tomorrow and two of the lymph nodes for the left one... if they are clear, I will be cancer free at that moment. If there is cancer, he will continue taking out the lymph nodes if needed, until they show as cancer free. Hopefully, it will not end up being in them all as it could effect my left arm usage if they all have to be removed. I will then be a patient at the West Michigan Cancer Center and will go from there. He said due to the aggressive type of cancer that they may opt for some minor chemo to make sure all cells remaining are dead. I just am so grateful for the positive results so far and pray they continue. Your prayers have helped so much as that is where the true power lies.


Today, please join me in praying especially hard for Monique to come through her surgery and that the results are good for her.

How do you say...

Thank you to so many wonderful people who are sending up prayers?

I read the comments on Robyn and Tammy's blogs last night and spent so much time in tears of gratitude that I couldn't even post. I decided to post my thanks here as I would love someone who does not have an expression to win their contests and didn't want to be entered so didn't post there. The posts were all so positive and heartwarming.

As I read some of them to my hubby, he got choked up too.  It still amazes him to think about all of the beautiful cards and prayers we received when he was going through the battle for his life last year. We have all of the cards in a beautiful box and still pull them out and read them sometimes.

We were at the hospital 5 hours yesterday and I went through a battery of tests. The worst one was the full body bone scan.  I had to stay still for 25 minutes (crafters DON'T stay still) and wouldn't you know it, my nose started itching.  I began talking to God and it ended up OK.  I sure only wanted to do that test once!!!
I go to see my surgeon tomorrow at 8:00 a.m. and pray that the results were good. 

Please take a minute and say a prayer for Monique Griffith.  She is enduring yet another surgery this week in her fight of this disease.   I pray this will result in her being a complete winner of this battle. I love her spirit and she WILL beat this and I will too.  This disease messed wtih two very stubborn woman who do not like to lose!  GO MONIQUE - YOU WILL BEAT THIS!!!  LOVE YOU GIRL!

Pink Expression Giveaways...

You really need to hop on over to Robyn's My Pink Stamper (http://www.mypinkstamper.com/) and Tammy's  Creative Critters Cricut Club http://www.cricutcritters.com/ blogs and enter to win a Pink Expression.  What a truly wonderful thing for them to do.  Love their blogs and wish some of their talent would rub off on me. 

Also, I read on Robyn's site that Monique Griffith has to endure yet another surgery tomorrow.  Please add her to your prayers.  Her and her family have had to go through so much due to this disease called Breast Cancer.  I pray they find a cure for this soon!!!

Today I have to have a full body scan to see whether or not the cancer in my breast has spread or not. Just know as I am laying there, trying to stay still, that I will be thinking of all of the wonderful friends I have met on the Cricut Board and my special friends on the Purple Palace Board.  You all mean a lot to me and your prayers and messages have so helped to keep me strong during this fight.

I love my Cricut, and thinking about it yesterday and how much joy it has brought, I also realized if it had not been for buying my little bug in 2007, I would not be so fortunate to have met so many wonderful and talented people. This was the best spur of the moment purchase I have ever bought. Thanks to you all!

Happy Blessed Sunday

Well... Thought I should probably do an update here for those that have asked how I'm doing.  I do have breast cancer and will be having a double mastectomy Friday. This little bump in the road will be smoothed out soon.  My faith is so much bigger than this cancer and by next week this time, I will be so much better. Please keep my hubby and me in your prayers to keep us strong throughout this process. 

Hugs and Love to my crafting friends who have been so much support for both my hubby and myself this past couple of years.   

Life is Good - God is Great!!!!

Staying busy waiting...

I have an appointment with my surgeon on Tuesday morning so we should know more then as to what will happen next.  Hopefully, all will be taken care of really soon.  I made this Cricut Circle Calling card this morning to keep myself busy.  It is really plain compared to those beautiful ones that others have made; but, I like it just fine.  Thank you all for the prayers and kind posts.  Hugs!!!

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

WooHoo!!! O-well... Maybe not so WooHoo!!!

I am posting this here because I feel so blessed right now.  I just received the results of my MRI and all is well.  I have fibrocystic disease and therefore, the lump is fluid filled.  Yippeeeee!!!   I got tears of joy when I got the call.  Thank you all for your prayers and thoughts. 

Uupdated:  5:30 p.m. Eastern time. - Bummer!!!
Well... Darn. Keep those prayers coming if you would. I found out that I have to have a double biopsy - it seems the doctor got an addendum to the first MRI results and there is a spot on each side that is suspicious.  Darn!!!  I'm trying to stay positive and hope this all ends up being fixed soon.  Just gotta wait for an appointment with my surgeon now.  Hugs!!!

Gatefold Card

I have created a Gatefold Card for the Cricut Circle Friday challenge in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month.  It was an emotional card for me to do at this point as I am still waiting for results of an MRI that I had last Friday regarding a lump on my breast. Hopefully, after two mammograms, an Ultra Sound and this MRI they will figure out how to get rid of this. The support and friendship of the members of the Cricut Circle and my special Purple Palace friends has been amazing. I so appreciate all of the prayers and thoughts that have came to me. I have felt surrounded by warmth from them and my family and friends during this fearful time.  The wait SUCKS!  I find my emotions go from positive to negative in a heartbeat.  Hopefully, the results will be known today and I can get on with whatever needs to be done to fix this.

Anyway... on a more positive note... If anyone would like the cut file for the Gatefold card, please go here: http://www.brensdesigns.com/2010/05/mothers-day-card-with-cut-file.html

I used George to cut the card, Home Accents and Home Decor cartridges. The Butterflies were in a kit I purchased and I used a pencil to curl the wings and a bit of glitter to add some bling and kept the flourish on the words due to the requirements of the challenge.

Shadowbox Framed Layout

I have been working on a framed layout for the Cricut Circle Challenge and the following is what I came up with. The layout has a lot of popped cuts on it and I put it in a shadow box frame.  I used a 10 cartridges to do this layout.  They are:

Sentimentals for the fancy scissors
Country Life for the Sewing Machine
French Manor for the Hutch
Locker Talk for the Camera
Home Decor for the Create Memories words
Home Accent for the Imagine and Family words
Wall Decor & More for scissors
Cursive and Cindy Loo for the One Cut at a Time words
Fabulous Finds for the Cabinet Hinges

I was trying to make the cabinet look like the Scrapbox Cabinet and had drawers in the top and it just didn't look right so I ended up with shelves. The gray part is supposed to look like a fold down table with a layout on it. It was a lot of fun working with so many cartridges and it looks really cute hanging in my scrap room. It actually looks lots better in person.

Ciao Card

I needed to do a card for the Cricut Circle Challenge using the French Manor cartridge and came up with the card below. I believe Ciao means both Goodbye and Hello in Italian and European countries have adopted it also. I used the word to say goodbye to the old body and hello to the new body after losing weight. The pics are not the best - but, here is a picture of the front and inside of the card.

The Bling-a-lings Layout

They had a challenge for Labor Day weekend on the Cricut Circle group. What am I doing this weekend? SCRAPPING!!!  My hubby went to Northern Michigan with some buddies for a couple of days so I decided to spend some time in my scrap room and try to get caught up on a couple of layouts. I am still working on May of this year so this layout is of my granddaughter, Erica, and her friends getting ready to go to the Senior Prom. Their dresses had such beautiful colors that I decided not to use pattern paper for this one. The solid color paper is textured, just does not show well in the pictures.  I used Design Studio and Cricut's Tie-The-Knot cartridge for the dress and shoes and Songbird cartridge for the title. I then added some flowers and lots of bling to the layout. Wish it showed up better in the pics.

My Granddaugher is in the Hot Pink gown.
Even the backs of their gowns were beautiful.
 These girls are such a beautiful and fun group of girls.

       

 

Not sure I like the white on the gown bottom... but, it is done now so it stands as is.

Scraproom

I had my scraproom in the famlily room downstairs until yesterday. I decided I do not like being away from the main part of the house. I spent yesterday moving my stuff upstairs to the small bedroom. I had it in that room awhile ago and thought I would like it in the larger room... NOT!  O-well... Anyway... here are pictures of my scraproom - at least as of this minute.

This is the main work area of the room.


This is how my paper is stored.  I didn't have room for all of my paper to be brought upstairs. As I use the paper upstairs, I will bring the other up and replenish.



This is how I store most of my embellishments.  They are hung on my Clip-it-up in categories.


This is how I store my Stickles, glitter and Flock.  This is a cork board with velcro.




This is storage for misc items such as flowersoft, ribbon, glossy accents, etc.


This is where I store my Bows and Flowers.


This is where my Cuttlebug embossing folders and other items are stored.  It is a shoe holder.


Under my table I have plastic storage bins with ribbon, chalk, ink, adhesives, etc. in the drawers.



This is how I store my Cricut Cartridges... They are in the top drawer which makes them very easy to get to.  Right now there are 78 carts stored here in alpha order.


Well, there you have my scrap space.

Enjoying The Simple Life

I wanted to use my Country Life cartridge and decided to scrap this pic of my DH and our Daisy. I LOVE this cartridge and thought the banner option was something differnt. I tried my hand at the faux stitching and found that I stitch just like I sew - not too straight.  The papers are Co-erdinations Gemstone (blue) and misc DCWV stacks.

Bless This Nest

I purchased this page kit from Scrapbook Eden because I love the bird and wanted to learn how to do eyes the way she does. Melinda is very talented and her chalking is amazing. She has a great tutorial on her site as to how to do this. She also has a Cricut site called Cooking with Cricut that you might like to visit. I had fun doing this layout and am excited at what I learned.

Finally Time to Scrap and Post... WooHoo!!!

Wow!  My third post today!!!  WooHoo!!!!

We have been so busy this summer that I have not been able to do much scrapping and posting to my blog. Well... Finally, things are settling down a bit. We have put our house on the market (wish us luck) and in doing so I have been doing a ton of work to get it ready to sell.  Funny how things that have needed done get finished when you decide to sell.

For those that have emailed about my dear hubby... He is doing great!  He has a 20 lb weight limit for the rest of his life and will always walk with a cane - but, that is minor compared to what we were afraid would be the end result of all he went through. We have certainly been blessed.  I never thought much about 20 lbs and in working on the house for selling, I have found that 20 lbs is not much at all.  Geez! 

Another thing that happened this summer, I am now a member of the Cricut Circle and LOVE it. I only joined for the Quarter and will be changing that soon to be yearly.  Yippeeee!!!  I received the French Manor cartridge for joining and love it. I also will get an exclusive cart every quarter that is only available to Circle members. Yup - My Cricut addiction is still as STRONG as ever.  LOL!!!

Birthday Card with Cut/Gypsy files

I need to make a birthday card for my niece's birthday party today. She love princesses and I thought this card would make her happy. I used Coerdinations Gemstone and DCWV Sweet stack for the card.

I added the Cut file to my blog in February and you can find it here: http://www.brensdesigns.com/2010/02/princess-dress-shape-card-with-cut-file.html

You will find the Gypsy file below the picture. I have not tried it in the Gypsy and hope it works right.
