Amazing Weekend!

We had an incredible time at the "Walk Now for Autism" fundraiser. It was amazing and very emotional all at the same time. All three of my autistic grandsons were at the walk . . . Jake, Jaden, and McKay and they were troopers as we completed the three mile course. It was a very long three miles, but we all finished the walk . . . what a wonderful feeling!
Our scrapbook store, Devine Memories, was a corporate sponsor. Over the past several months we have raised $7,264.00 to help with awareness and research for this physical disorder. Autism is our charity of choice and we encourage all families to celebrate in their children's lives. We had a display table of different scrapbooking ideas to help document and preserve their accomplishments and memories.
Thanks so much to everyone who helped make this event a success . . . our customers, our families, our friends, and most of all Jake, Jaden, and McKay! WE LOVE YOU!

Walking for Autism . . .

This Sunday, my family and I will participate in the "Walk Now for Autism" fundraiser at Tempe Town Lake in Tempe, Arizona. I have three beautiful grandsons who have been diagnosed with some type of autistic spectrum. They are the sweetest, most lovable, and incredible boys and we are so lucky to have them in our family. Our scrapbook store, Devine Memories, has chosen autism research as our charity of choice. Over the past several weeks we have held several fundraising activities for this cause. We want to thank all of our customers and friends who have so willingly given their time, money and talents to help us in this effort.

There is still time to help . . . just click on the autism walk link from the Devine Memories website and join our team or make a donation. We would love to have you walk with us on Sunday morning. We also have some incredibly awesome t-shirts on sale at the store of which the profits go directly to autism research. Jake's handwriting expresses everything, and Jen's graphics add extra charm. Isn't Jenna a darling model?

Have a great weekend . . . we will!
