Prayers Needed

Hi everyone. I usually don't step out and ask for prayer for myself or someone else too often, but today I feel the need to do so. I know the power of prayer CAN and DOES work magic. So, please, if you will, take a moment each day to think of this family it would mean the world to me and them.

Niki is a very talented scrapbooker and online scrappy friend of mine and several other ladies that I know. Her precious 4 year old daughter Ellie was just diagnosed with a brain tumor with only a 10% survival rate on April 29th. She spent three days in the hospital with Pat and Niki while meeting with several specialists in preparation for radiation treatments to start this week – Today I believe.

Did I mention Niki is pregnant and is scheduled for a C-Section on the 27th of this month?

Technical terms for what little Ellie is facing from what I have gathered is a Diffusely Infiltrative Brain Stem Glioma.

Here is a link that I found that tells a little more in depth about it:

We are all just heartbroken at what the family is facing and I would love if we could join as a group and send prayers and positive thoughts to Niki, Ellie and the family!!!

You can check out her website - NO money is being asked for at all – just leave a quick note in the guestbook showing the power of love and prayer is all that I’m asking!!!

Here is a link to the website:

If anyone would like to show their support to Ellie and her family it would be great - they need all the prayers they can get right now.

Thanks for your time everyone – most of us have children or nieces/nephews and would love the prayers and support if we were in their shoes.

My prayers are with them all. Very sad indeed.


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???

Thanks and happy scrappin'!!!!
