Sorry for not being around.

Life is just really busy right now. And this week we're trying to get the bulk of our packing all done.

Last week my mom & dad and brother, his wife and 2 kids came here for the week. My dad had a big convention all week and at the end there was a banquet to honor him and his work. He's officially retired now! I'm happy for him (and my mom). They've looked forward to this time for quite a while now.

This past Sunday was our last one at our church. It certainly wasn't easy saying goodbye to friends. It never is.

I am looking forward to this new chapter in our lives though. (even if I am scared. That's normal right?)

Nothing new in the scrapbook world to talk about ... for me at least. Plus I haven't really worked on anything 'cause my stuff is all in boxes.

But, I'll leave you with a layout that I did a few weeks ago.

Have a great week!


  1. Oh Cari! I just love your work. I never ever tire of looking at it. What an amazing layout.

    Good luck with moving. I sure miss you sister.



  2. Sounds like a busy few weeks ahead! I hope everything goes well.

    It's hard to say good-bye, even when you know it's the right thing, hey?

    Love the layout! It's so fun!

  3. Good luck with your move. I'm sure your mom and dad are looking forward to having you closer to them.

  4. You are moving for all the right reasons, but it's still hard to make a big change like that. That layout is just awesome!

  5. i know its hard to move away from the people you love, but you are lucky. you guys are also moving TO people you love! i'm sure your mom & dad are thrilled. i know i am and i'm just a friend. :)
