JUGS 37 & Aimee's Shower

Can you believe it's Monday? I can't! I have to go back to work today after my 2-week "hiatus" and I am not really looking forward to it, but such is life. Anyway, I was in the mood for cherries when I made this, apparently - it's for the

Just Us Girls Challenge #37 - use a digi image or digi paper (I used an All That Scraps digi image)

Cardstock, brads, ribbon & DP by Stampin' Up! in Real Red, Basic Black, and Certainly Celery.

Saturday afternoon was my cousin Nick's fiancee's bridal shower, her name is Aimee and here she is, isn't she adorable?

This is a group of my crazy family - we had a good time even though it rained a little. Aimee's Facebook status Saturday morning read "I was hoping my shower wouldn't be a literal shower". hee hee
This is, from left: auntie Debbie, auntie Karen, cousin Amanda, my sister Michelle, cousin Angela, me, my mom, and my auntie Pammy:

Here we are again:

This is the "baby" of the family, the youngest cousin (we have over 20 first cousins), Amanda - she is a hot shit and I just adore her:
Me, my sis and our mom:
Me, auntie Karen, Aimee (her fiance is Karen's son Nick), and Amanda:
me and my BCF (best cousin forever) Ange:
And here we are in black and white - hee hee:
It was a beautiful shower and we had a lot of fun, which I desperately needed.

Jeremy's dad is getting a little better every day and they expect to move him to a rehab this week, hopefully. He will probably be there for a month or so - we're not sure yet. Jeremy and I had been putting it off, but yesterday we went to their house and emptied their fridge and brought their trash out. It was sad - emptying the fridge, knowing that Maryann bought this stuff and now it's being thrown away because she's never coming home... :( Very sad, but it had to be done. I wish so much that this was all just a bad dream.

Anyway, I have to go get ready for work now - hope you all have a great week. Wish me luck getting through mine! I am a little nervous, but I think it'll be OK. I can only take it one day at a time, right? Peace.


  1. What a cute card. I was thinking about getting that stamp because I like the cherry theme too & now after seeing your adorable creation, I have to get it.

    Hope today goes ok for you. I've been thinking about you & I wish there was something I could do to take your pain away. Hugs, Ann
