Hello 2014!!!

Wow, it has been a very long time since I have posted anything on my blog :(  Things have been, needless to say, very stressful in the Pendarvis household over the last 7 months.  Our family lost eight very dear loved ones and it was tough getting through it.
  I am truly looking forward to a fantastic 2014 filled with family celebrations, crafting, and just enjoying life!  So I am back, slowly-getting into the grove of things.  Last night I spent some time with a few close friends and scrapbooked.  Well, I didn't get a chance to scrapbook but I was able to begin crafting and creating some graduation decorations.  My oldest son will be graduating high school in May and then he will be off to college studying Computer Science.  He wants to become a Software Architect and also study programming and networking.   I am very excited about his choice of study and I hope it leads to a well rounded career that he enjoys!
I used Birthday Bash (my favorite cartridge to use for banners!), Varsity Letters Cartridge for the letters and Summer Celebrations for the eagle (school mascot)  I cut the banner at 7 inches, numbers at 4 inches, and the letters were cut at 3 inches.  I found the white and silver glitter paper at JoAnn Fabrics and it was awesome!  It almost felt like leather to the touch :)  I am getting a few ideas from Pinterest!  Love that website. :)
Here's to crafting and enjoying life with peace, good friends, and family!!!  It feels good to be back in the grove.
