Sunday Scrapbook

Hi Guys!

I hope you are all having a very peaceful Sunday.  I have just finished watching the first session of my church's biannual General Conference.  We get to hear inspirational and uplifting talks from our church leaders all weekend long.  My family just uses it as a time to spend together and we eat a lot of junk food while sitting in our living room.  :)

For those of you who are new do not know yet, I love to scrapbook on Sundays!  I don't do anything that has to do with My Pink Stamper "blog" or "business" but I do like to challenge you to work on your own Personal or Family History by updating or working on your scrapbooks.  I also like to challenge you to make a card or project for someone else and give it to them.  What a great opportunity so many of us have to serve.  We have been blessed with the talent to make such wonderful creations, we just need to share it more.  I know that I do, at least!

Today I am organizing my scrapbooks and journaling on pages that I don't have dates or names.  I found a layout that I made exactly one year ago of when my husband and I ran in the Susan G. Komen 5K run.  Of course I will not be able to run in it next Saturday but my husband is still going to.  I have an injured heel (bone spurs) that we are hoping will not need surgery.  Anyway, I wanted to share this page with you guys today.  It brings back so many emotions I felt that day.  As some of you know, our friend in the scrapbook/blog world, Monique Griffith, is going through breast cancer treatment right now and has her mastectomy surgery scheduled October 28th.  I hope you will all keep her in your thoughts and prayers this month as I am sure she will need them.  I will be posting more about her in the upcoming weeks.  I think she will need lots of cards before then.  I know I would love to feel support if I was going through that.

Here is my special page.  I hope you all enjoy it and have a GREAT Sunday!

  1. Robyn, good for you and your husband. I can say that I don't know of anyone who hasn't met someone who has gone through Breast CA. Love your scrapbook page. And your friend with breast cancer will certainly be in my thoughts and prayers. It's amazing with the survivial rate today. I am a RN and have met so many wonderful people with this disease. It has all to do with people like you who campaign and fund raise for research. Thank You and have a great day with your family.

  2. Robyn,
    Thank you so much for challenging all of us to share our talents God has given us to uplift others. I have a dear Sr. friend who had breast cancer return after 23 years and has had the second breast removed and a close friend who is having reconstructive surgery next week. Today will be a day to make cards for them.

  3. Robyn, you do incredible things, this is another. My Mother-in-law had a Radical Mastectomy and is a little over 5 yrs out. I managed a Mammography practice for over 12 yrs & saw a lot of women with Breast Cancer. The Technology improves more everyday thanks to orgs like Susan G. Komen. Bless you for all you do. Thanks to your DH for running without you...he's doing for everyone it touches.
    Thanks

  12. This is a wonderful layout!! It is so great to see how many people support such an amazing cause, and hopefully one day we will have a world full of survivors.

  13. I am sad with you that you won't be able to run this year. :-( I remember cheering you on last year from here in Ukiah, but your heart will be running with your sweet hubby. Monique is such an awesome young lady, as YOU are. hugs

  16. Robyn,

    I was lucky enough to just meet Monique at a Crop for the Cure on Saturday. What a lovely lady! And Wendy L was just as sweet!

    It was really nice of you to donate objects for the silent auction.

    Have a great night!

  17. Great layout Robyn and yes we will keep praying for Monique.

  18. This is awesome! Not only are you the cure - you are also the sponsor of more birthdays! I don't race for a cure, but I do walk for a cure. I walk also to remember my late husband, Larry, who died of brain cancer in 2005 at the age of 51. It's all I can do to get through the first lap. My prayers are with Monique and all those stuggling with cancer, either as a patient or as a family member. Thank you Robyn for the reminder that lives are precious and that we can all be the cure and sponsors of more birthdays!

  21. OMG! Thank you for posting this. My husband and I ran the 5K together last year and I have been wanting to do a page. This was the inspiration that I needed. You are so amazing!

    First, love the layout and so glad your husband is still going to run, even though you can't.

    Second, bone spur, I am having surgery tomorrow since my bone spur is tearing my planter facitiis. I asked, why not just remove the bone spur at the same time. I was told that it is the absolute last possible thing you want done - you will lose all the "shock absorbing" muscle in your foot and you don't get it back. You will then develop knee, hip and back problems. So, my PF is being cut and lengthen and hopefully I won't feel the impact of the spur anymore. I have been living with the pain since late December 2009 and it just gets worse and worse. I honestly can't take it anymore, but hopefully it will be all okay tomorrow. Just thought I would pass along what I have found out about heel spurs this past year! Good luck and I hope it feels better soon.

    Take care

I think that you have embraced your talents and I think that it is so awesome that you can do what you love and share the gospel at the same time with out offending anyone. You are being such a good missionary! Way to go and keep up the good work!

  24. Robyn,
    Thanks so much for sharing this. My Mom is breast cancer free now for two years...
    It hurts me to know that anyone has to experience this...
    Thanks so much for doing these runs and tell your husband thank you as well. Keep up the great work! I check your blog everyday and I promise that someday soon I will buy your stamps. :)
    hugs,jen

  25. I too am a breast cancer survivor - of 14 years now. Good luck to all the Race for the Cure participants. It's a wonderful cause. Did you know that Scentsy has a beautiful Warmer representing breast cancer survivors? It's called "Faith, Hope, Love". You can find it on the Scentsy site.

  27. It is no wonder you create such beautiful things...your beauty starts from a giving spirit within you. How awesome! Thanks, Robyn for the challenge and inspiration. I'm praying for your heel to heal!

  28. What a beautiful and inspiring layout. My mother, too, had a breast cancer and I am being monitored closely as well. I hope there is cure found for this terrible disease quickly, losing even one person to this, is one too many. I will be cheering your husband in spirit with hopes that your heel will be better so that you can participate in next year's event. God bless you for all the wonderful things you continue to do, big hugs, Patty

  29. Robyn, Sorry you can't run! I know your pain! I have a bad knee and I am heading to the doctor in two weeks to see what they are going to do.
    I know at one time someone had an address to send cards to Monique, can you put that up again?
    I also wish Provo Craft would either sell the PINK cartridge or come out with a new one and give part of the proceeds to The Breast Cancer Research, I know I would purchase along with so many others.

  30. I have always wanted to walk this race maybe next year. I did get to walk the ovarian cancer walk and plan to do the heart walk and autism walk. My husband had a heart attack and daughter has autism. What a great opportunity to show our support. Good luck to your hubby for the walk. here in denver the cure walk was on saturday.

  31. Hi Robyn, I commend your support for your friend. A few loved ones have been overcome by this same disease. It's always good to have a supportive family or friend in your corner. Smooches to you both.

  32. That's a great layout. I've been wanting to make some for the Komen races in Columbus that my bf has run in - he & 50,000 other people! He really enjoys it like it looks like you & dh do.

    Prayers to Monique. Her surgery date reminds me that my friend at work had her surgery on Oct 31 a few years ago & is doing well now. I wish the same for Monique.

  33. Monique must be a very popular young lady. She is posted on many blogs and is, I'm sure, receiving many prayers for her complete recovery. We will keep her in our prayers now and for her surgical date in Octobeer. God Bless.

  36. Thanks for all that you do, my grandmother passed away from this about 13 years ago. Now medicine is much more advanced, I became an RN after my grandmothers illness. I have seen/taken care of many individuals that have made a full recovery. Thoughts and prayers to everyone that is battling.
