Many of you know that my mother in law has been battling cancer for sometime now. Last week she passed away.
She was always there for me, and stepped right in when my mom passed away. I will miss our phone calls, visiting my kids with her, playing Farkel,her smile and sense of humor. She was my friend, my shopping pal, and I loved her dearly.
It's been hard blogging this last month as I tried to spend as much time as possible with her. I tried to preschedule posts, but I wasn't able to keep up with it all.
In fact it was my turn to host at The Paper Players Sunday. One of my teammates stepped in for me. Thanks Joanne! Not only did they cover for me, they also sent me a basket of daisies. I was SO surprised when I saw them at the funeral, and so deeply touched.
Sometimes I wonder why I blog, and I guess this is one of the main reasons. It's the friends you make sharing this hobby of ours!
So a big thank you to The Paper Players!
Here is the post I meant to have ready for Sunday:
I went straight down the first row with die-cut,baby, and blue. I used the adorable giraffe from Marianne and backed the lil guy on a scalloped rectangle from Cheery Lynn. The blue background is from Sue Wilson's scalloped lattice frames. I love that beautiful stitched lattice! The sentiment is also from Sue Wilson called "Stuffed Animals."

I hope you will play along!
