HaPpY CaMpErS....

As summer is winding down
and the kids are getting ready
to start school soon; 
I was running out of time
 to go on our camping trip
 I had promised my boys.

We headed for the hills.
Camped for 2 days.

Took only memories 
{and tons of photos, of course!!}
and left only footprints.

I am so giddy to start scrapping
this awesome adventure we had, 
{I can hardly stand it!}

Now all I need is some fun inspiration 
to get my creative juices flowing and
maybe some chocolate to go with that!

In my search I found these to get me started...

 I love their papers????

 Well, I will anyway! :)

The newest contributor to our blog.

My name is Rachelle, 
I am one of Jorjana's many niece's.
She was and still is my favorite aunt.
I love when I have the opportunity
to work with her. She is so talented!!

I am married to a wonderful,
hard working man, whom I love dearly.

We met as young children, 8 yrs old to be exact.
Grew up together, attended church and school together.
Started dating each other at the tender age of 16.
We are high school sweethearts.
And finally married in beautiful  Manti, Utah, 
in  May of 1997.

We have 3 amazing little boys.
I am so very proud of them.
These little guys mean the world to me.

I have been scrap booking for over 15 yrs.
Like many of you out there, I too
have a whole room dedicated to this hobby!
So much fun!!!!

I am thrilled  Jorjana has asked me
 to start blogging for her.
Just know that writing, spelling and
punctuation is not my thing.
So be kind with all my errors.
As you see in the last post that our
dear Russell Wentworth has passed on.

I am thankful that I can help my family
(in a small way) by taking care of this blog.
One less thing for Carissa and others to worry about.

I can't wait to get to know all of you fellow bloggers.
I hope to bring much joy and inspiration to you!

Our dear Russell will be missed

This is a difficult thing to do. I have been contemplating how I could even begin to write this. As some of you may know, we are a small family owned business. Jorjana and I are the creators and managers of our company. My sister Carissa started and managed this blog for us until the needs of her family made it difficult to continue. Her husband, Russell, was diagnosed with a brain tumor seven years ago. He faced multiple rounds of intense treatments and surgeries with amazing strength and courage, but he lost the battle on July 20, 2011. We knew that his time with us was limited, but when he finally passed away, we could feel the loss of his amazing spirit. Russell was a remarkable, amazing man. He was a good husband and attentive father of three children. He was also a son, brother, son-in-law, brother-in-law and friend. He had an incredible zeal for the law and for what was right. He was incredibly intelligent and always finished what he started. Even when he knew that the tumor would win, he gave all that he had to his family and friends until the end. He had tremendous courage and truly endured until the end. We all loved and enjoyed Russell and he will be missed tremendously.

We have been traveling back and forth over the past six months to Denver to assist Russell and Carissa and their family. This has caused inconveniences for some of our customers. We want to thank all of you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. We want you to know how much we appreciate all of the kind words and letters we have received. Thank you for your continued support as we move forward.
