I have been battling the itch to scrap all week and finally caved in! I really enjoy the monthly challenges at NoelMignon and InspiredtoScrap. Here are 3 new lay-outs from those challenges:
This is Carley at her 2nd grade Award's Day.

Sherry, Mom, and I at Walk-A-Mile for a child.

This is Carley, my step-sister Cheyanne, and my step-niece Trinity at the HHS Football Game, when Carley was a Flag Girl Mascot.

I'm working on two more today so I'll be back to share those soon!
Thanks for stopping by!!!

So much has happened since that beautiful day in March when Mr. Pharr and I got married. We had a wonderful time in the mountains and our cabin was gorgeous! As soon as we got back, we were planning a spa party for a certain drama queen who just turned 9....our Carley Nevaeh!

We celebrated Easter at our home church, Hackleburg Church of God of Prophecy. We had no idea that just 3 days later our church would be destroyed by an F5 tornado that wiped out 80% of the town. It broke our hearts and so much loss was mourned but it bound together a community set forth to rebuild and carry on. It made me proud to be from Alabama and it still warms my heart to see so many from abroad that have reached out to help our community.

As a result of the tornadoes, I also got to meet a cyber friend from, Virginia Tillery. We met at the Birmingham Mall where I picked up back packs to take back to the children of Hackleburg who lost everything they owned.

And so we began preparing for the end of the school year and all the events that take place before Summer vacation officially begins.
Carley was in the school play, Tom Sawyer, as a member of the chorus. They did such a wonderful job and Carley sang her little heart out.

My little man graduated pre-school. It makes me sad to think that he is starting kindergarten this Fall. He is my last one to have at home full-time. Next thing I know, they will be graduating high school!

Speaking of graduating high school, my niece Savannah graduated high school! This makes me sad, too. She was my first "baby." I was 15 when she was born. She would sleep on my chest at night, so her mom could sleep! She stayed with me more than she stayed home. Then, I got married and she got mad. After that, I wasn't cool anymore!lol But, I know she still loves me!

This brings us up to this passed Saturday where we celebrated Savannah's graduation party at the lake! Here are Carley and Gavin with their silly faces and a sweet smiling photo just for me!

Whew! I'm exhausted now! How about you? I'll leave you with pics of Carley and Gavin sleeping on the way home from the lake! I'll be back soon to post scrappy projects I haven't posted yet!

Until then.....

Just wanted to share some pics from our wedding!!! These are a few of my favorites. The wedding was simple but just perfect for us. It turned out to be such a wonderful day. I couldn't have asked for more. I made most of the decorations with help from my mom. My cousin, sister and I made the cake. My Momma 2, my mom, and my sister helped me with the arch. My cousin, the fabulous Angelia Yielding, took my pictures. My BIL married us and my SIL sang. My nephews ran the sound. My niece and lil' sis handed out the favors. Of course, Carley was the flower girl and Gavin the ring bearer. My BIL ushered in our parents. I just loved that it was a family affair. That meant so much to me. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

First off the pew markers made by yours truly!

My jewelry purchased from my dear friend, Doris Smith. She's on my facebook with more of her fabulous jewelry.

My bouquet made by me and my mom.

My fabulous shoes I found in Birmingham, after the ones I had dyed came back looking horrible. I liked these much better anyway! ;)
