Joel & Kassie

Last night at 7:30pm, Kassie gave birth to a stillborn baby girl.  She was 17 weeks pregnant.  The baby's name is McKenzi Kay Ann Hunt. 

Please, pray for them.  Joel is my cousin, and Kassie is his wonderful fiance.  He is a disabled Vet, Not even 30 yrs old.  He gave himself for our country, and since his return he has been fighting for the rights of Disabled Vets.  Kassie has been so loving and supportive of Joel, and is a welcome addition to our family.  I am asking you to pray for peace and comfort for them, as the loss of their little girl is devastating.  Thank you so much!!

Heart Treat Box

Ok, I've decided to respond to a challenge.. I'm quite timid at challenges, always afraid that my outcome won't be what I've imagined.  So, I hope you like...

The top flower is made entirely of heart punches!  Even the leaves!

Going, going, gone! Page two... SO funny!!!

Tell me this is not funny!!  Cause WE sure think it is!!!  LOL!!!   And this is another MDS creation!!  So much you can do with the awesome features that this program packs in!!

Going, Going, Gone! Scrapbook Page

So, I couldn't bring myself to do this yesterday, too soon.  But, today I decided to give it a try.  I would like to hear what you think, before I sent it to the printer... now that we can print individual sheets!!  Yeah!!!

Going, Going, Gone!!!

This is it. I'm here.
Below are the before pictures...
In a braid (which is how he usually wore it), and my favorite.. Loose!!

Karissa offered to let me cut the 'tail', but I couldn't.  I had a sick feeling in my stomach.  I felt like I was committing a crime!  I couldn't believe how calm Dave was through this whole thing!  I did get lots of pictures, but that's for an album.  It's going to take alot of getting used too!!  But, now I get to package the remainders for Locks of Love!  *gulp*

The End!

I've said it before, and I'll say it again... The Medallion Stamp is the BEST investment I've ever made!  I LOVE THIS STAMP!!!  It's extremely versatile, and absofreakinlutely BeAuTiFuL!!!  So, it was my first decision when we (the kids & I) decided to make Dave his very own (no body else touches) coaster!!!  By the way, HE LOVED IT!!!
