It's {almost} FRIDAY!

and i am stoked. my girls are coming in from Philly and jersey this weekend. it is bittersweet though. it is for a ride for a our best friend who lost her sister 3 years ago to a massive heart attack. she was 8 mos pregnant at the time and they lost the baby, too. so the last saturday in september we do a ride for her and we bar hop and raise money for the American Heart Association and the Harley's are a blazin'! if your the praying kind, this would be the time to say a prayer for her 15 year old son, tyler, and her husband {tyler's step dad} and the rest of the family. every day is still a rough one for them. she was only 35.

okay, debbie downer is done now...on a happier note! I participated in the Collage Press challenge again this month. I just flippin' love their papers. I did the altered challenge last month here. The stamp is a myStampBox stamp, 2 of the buttons & ricrac are Jillibean Soup and a touch of Core'dinations.

one more thing...Don't forget about the Pimp Your Bra Crop over at Serendipity Scrapbooks! We have a TON of sponsors...Core'dinations, books from Ali E, Sherry Stevenson and Becky Fleck, DCWV, Stampin' up! and more! And we are having a Critter Craze contest this month!!! Got Critters??? this would be a great way to use them up! AND you can win 50 bucks in product! if you haven't seen kristen's kits then you are missing out.
