My friend Niki's life has changed so dramatically this past week and my heart is just breaking for her and her family. Her 5 year old daughter Ellie was just diagnosed with a Glioma brain tumor. It is inoperable as it is in her brain stem. She will be starting radiation treatments this week. I have been down this road myself with my mom's brain tumor. It is not a fun road to be on. And add to that Niki is pregnant with her third child who is to be born on May 27th by C-section. I just can't imagine what she is going through at this time. Please pray for little Ellie and for Niki and her family. We never know when life is going to throw something at you like this so just remember to live everyday and not let the little things get you down. God has his plans and we have to learn to live through them all both good and bad.

With that being said I had a rather mopey weekend and didn't get much accomplished. And it was National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday. I had big plans but alas not much was done. That is okay though because I spent a lot of time with my family just enjoying being together. Friday though I did get this layout done of Andrew Thomas. The picture was a boo boo that I took while we were in Myrtle Beach but for some reason it just caught my attention and I knew that I had to scrap it. So I did some artsy fartsy things with it and I really love how it came out. He thinks that it is pretty cool too so I guess that is what matters the most for me!!

I am going to go and try and work on some NSD challenges that were posted this weekend. I have until midnight to get them finished so I am hoping to do just that. Have a great day everybody and please remember to keep Ellie in your prayers. Thank you so much and I know that Niki will appreciate it very much too!!
