Friends are Like Sunshine Through the Rain

Friends...Like Sunshine Through the Rain, don't you agree?  In some form or other friends I've met along this journey have brought such joy to my life.  Friends I've known since I was a little girl, friends at work, friends I've met in the crafting world either in person or online....

Thank Heaven for Friends!  It's amazing the power that kind words, prayers, and simply just listening have.  Today my post is a tribute to all of my friends....including YOU reading this right now!

Thank you for taking the time to comment, read, and just bring sunshine into my life.  It means so much and keeps me creating!

Friends are Like Sunshine Through the Rain

This card is made with lots of Basic Grey and Cosmo Cricket goodness!  I used stickles for raindrops.  I LOOOOOVE me some stickles!

Just us Girls

And this layout is of a photo I took with a BUNCH of old friends...the oldest friends I have!  My friend Lora got married and this was her bridal shower.  Oh man, it was a HOT day, but we cooled off with some good old iced Sweetberry tea at Elizabeth and Alexander's Tea House (love that place)!

And school is in full swing at the Kao household.  I've completed the monthly and daily chore charts for the kids.  He he...the must be wondering what in the world is going on with me...I really haven't had the kids stick to schedules but my son has just started Kindergarten and I really have to get THAT ONE on a schedule if he's going to do!  Poor kid, he's so much like his momma.  If my mother and father didn't keep on me constantly, I wouldn't have been able to get anything done (too much of a daydreamer).  And since I'm AWFUL at remembering when things need to be done, schedules are a MUST!

Even the Hubby couldn't escape the chore chart!  Ha to introduce it to him....muah ha ha ha!  Do you or did you use chore charts?  Got any good websites for tips and tricks?  Please share!

(Both creations were featured in the March 2012 issue of Scrapbook News and Review Magazine.)


  1. These are BEAUTIFUL!! LOVING the colors and loveeeeeeeeeee that sentiment on your card!!!!

  2. LOVE the funky style of the card! Amazing!

  3. Love your title on your card! Fabulous, I totally agree. :) I use a calendar and write everthing on it, it is a MUST! I have been converting to a digital calendar, but I prefer the big ole write in the squares calendar, it helps me see and remember things in an instant.


Thanks so much for visiting and commenting!!! You've brightened my day!
