Last fall, I was blessed to have the opportunity to go to an Extreme Makeover build in Lena, IL.  I was even more blessed to have the opportunity to take Matt and the boys along as well.  They had a blast and so did I.  I feel so lucky to work somewhere that allowed me the chance to go down and drop off the items, as well as actually see the site. 

Owen and Jacob had the amazing moment of meeting Paul from the show and we saw Ed drive by a few times on the golf cart.  Overall, it is a day that I don’t think they will forget soon.  I, however, took several months to actually get it scrapped!!!  LOL!!!  You know how it goes…  too many pictures, not enough time, right?

Anyway, here is the fun little layout I did to celebrate our weekend adventure.

  1. Wow how exiting – I love that show, the way they just completely change peoples lives for the better is just amazing.
    Great layouts, I love the banner title.

  2. very cool. We had Extreme Makeover nearby us here in TN a few years ago. The Hawkins family-really bad tornado, she sheilded her 2 young boys with her body, now she is paralyzed. So sad, but so courageous. Now her house has been rebuilt with everything wheelchair accessible, etc. She battles with back problems a lot andother issues from being in a wheelchair all the time now, but she seems to be in good spirits.

    Great layout, great day.
