In honour of a friend

Many local readers may have heard the story of Dallas and Krissy Martens and the tragedy that struck their family this Fall. The Hubs and I hung with Dallas in highschool. Character doesn't even begin to describe him. After marriages and mini vans come along you don't get together much at all but we still ran in the same circle of friends. The same friends who rallied together when we learned of Dallas's death and the horrific circumstances that Krissy was now in. Please go to Leica's blog to read the full story. The big Saskatchewan Scraps event is this weekend and the lovely Hollie Logue has put together a bake sale to help raise money for a wonderful project that Krissy is heading up in Roatan. Please take the time to read the details on Leica's blog, it is such a worthy cause. Definitely worthy of putting some calories on the ole behind and buying up all the baking the girls are pumping out. So be there. Tomorrow and Saturday. Mother Theresa School in Saskatoon. The scrapbooking event is by registration only so if you want to come and sit and scrapbook for a few hours (oh, ok, I am planning for 21 if I must tell the truth) you have to sign up and all the information is HERE. But if you want to come, buy up some baking, support Krissy's Lifebooks project and have a chat it is completely free of charge to get in the door. We'd love to see you there!
