..........and good times with fun friends...and the most incredible potluck I have ever taken part in!! Yay! :)
Here is one of the layouts I created last night.......it was *mostly* with the super cool items to be found in one of Color Me Miki's April kits...to be released on 3/31...but I did digress on this one, I added some lovely GIRL FRIDAY from COSMO CRICKET on it....happy happy happy...LOVE LOVE LOVE that chipboard sheet....and sewing (of course!) and buttons.....this is a photo of Kristina holding her flower bouquets from her 8th grade promotion last June....she loved her flowers...and figures, we left for our family vacation the day after....so I took photos...knowing the flowers would not look so hot when we got back! ;)
I did some other yummie layouts, and a very "green" little mini album with the April Kit......I'll be posting more after my girl Terri releases the kit for the entire paper crafting world to see! ;)
I am feeling so FREE being on SPRING BREAK now..........that I have another giveaway planned, I'll post it soon! :)

This was one of my most anticipated orders from the tradeshow back in January....Scrap FX has the coolest naturally colored chipboard embellishments.....ever!! :)
It was hard to choose, they literally have 100s of great choices, but I finally settled on trees, apples, owls, birds, butterflies, cogs/gears (for the guys!), and bees and a few other goodies........go check them out in the Scrapbook Embellishment Section of the cottage!
Pictured is the "Medium Tree". (I saw the coolest layout with one of these trees in the Sassafras Lass booth...oh joy...I need to scrap soon!)

As for me........spend a long time the doctor's office slash x-ray office today.....child #1 hurdled a little too hard during warmups last night, and twisted her ankle really bad...........x-ray doesn't show a fracture, but doc is concerned because it's very swollen in the spot typical for ankle fractures...sigh.....we'll spend all Monday afternoon with the ortho. She is a trooper though!!
