Good Morning everyone.  First off  I  need lots of prayers for my family.   My oldest grandaughter was in a very series car accident Monday.  By all rights she shouldn't be here. The Good Lord was read for her yet.  Broken pelvis, facial breaks.  Broken ribs.  Bruised lungs and bruised heart. As her Doctor said.  She's broken and a mess.

Then last nite my other grandaughter called and said that her future father-n-law had a seisure and fell and broken his neck from the fall and died instantly. 

Most of you know that my DH has lung cancer.  He was doing good up until yesterday.  He's no longer able to stand or walk very far.   He's STUBBORN ( like most men) so using a wheel chair he argues about it.  But I guess thats his pride, which I totatly understand.

So please keep my in mind when yall are saying prayers.  Just add a few more.   Thanks for letting me getting some built of emotions out.  I was telling another fellow crafter that I don't have time to get sick because there isn't enough hours in the day for everything that I need to do.  The hours are just not there.

Now on to a Happier post.  Over on the Lasting Memories blog, the challenge for this week is tags.
I have a new grandson and great-grandson.  One in May and one in July. Here is the link for the Lasting Memories Lo challenge  The challenge for this week is  "TAG"  Your It!!
Like I said in the beginning that I will have new Baby Boys in my life and decided to make this LO and do it for the challenge.
I want to thank Faith Abigail for the inspiration on making this page.  It will be a dbl LO when i'm finished.  I used alot of carts for this.  All the paper is from DCWV  The pattern paper is from the paper stack BABY BOY Stack.  This stack has some awesome paper in it.

First I will post the picture then I will tell you what I used to make this LO.
Here is how I made this LO.

I used brown for my base paper to match the brown in my in the pattern paper that I used.  I matted the 4x6 pictures  (4) with very light blue card stock.  I used the same blue card stock for the stork which was cut from the CRICUT SAMPLER cart.  The Title was cut from 2 different carts. BABY was Plantin Schoolbook and boy was cut from Kate's ABC's.  The house was cut from Kate's as all the layers. The tree with the swing is from Just Because Cards cart.  The tags are from A CHILDS YEAR.  I used eyelets that I had in my stash with blue and white bakers twine. I stuck the tags in the top of the picture mat to the left of the house.  I had seen where one of the DT ladies had done this.

I do have Kate's ABC's cart and the Cricut Sampler and Just Because cart.  I basically used the ULTIMATE CREATIVE SERIES SAMPLER.  I got this has a gift from one of my crafter friends.   I really like this  It has 6 different parts to this will lots of cuts from all carts
Thanks for looking and have a great week.  I will post the second page of this LO when I'm finished with it.

Good Friday morning everyone!!!  This has been a week full of Doctors.  Most of you know that my DH was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in Dec of 2011.  He has gone thru radiation and chemo most of 2012.  The cancer Doctor is very pleased with the lastest results and doesn't think that Larry needs to resume treatments at this time.  My DH says that he got a B report card.  As the Doctor said now we assume just getting his quality of life back and getting stronger. So for everyone that has sent prayers  Thank you!!!!

Enough of that.  I made this LO of my 2 grandsons with there back packs.  I'm entering this in 3 challenges.
    Laurie's challenge this week is to use the ciolor green.  Background paper and X2.   Lasting Memeriors challenge this week is to use either the 2 or 3 of the same thing.    The last challenge that I will be putting this in is  This challenge was to use Buttons.  I used the buttons to seperate the two pictures of the boys.   They love there backpacks.  And there always full of things.

Thanks for looking and hope you have a great weekend with lots of crafting.  Our tempertures are going to be in the 60"s so my yard is going to be calling me.  But I hope to get some things finished that I've been working on.
Here is my LO
