I'm totally flattered...

by all the support you girls have shown me. THANKS!!! I've been having some fun designing a few more things over the past couple of days and can't wait to share with you! :)

Big News
I got offers by a few different stores to start selling with them!!! :) I'm going to start with just one until I get my feet wet and see how it goes, but I am SO excited!!! This store is fantastic and has a great group of girls that I can't wait to get to know better. SO...want to know where it is???? Elemental Scraps!!! They are re-vamping their store and when they have the grand re-opening, I'll be there! I am just thrilled beyond all belief and I have all of you wonderful digi girls to thank for it all! All of the stores that offered me the opportunity were FANTASTIC and I hated turning anyone away. Thank you all!!! {{HUGS}} I am seriously a little overwhelmed by how great everyone is being about this!

New Kit and LO
Andrea Burns posted a new kit yesterday and it's GORGEOUS! One of my favorites of hers! And she has a contest for it too! Check that out here.


And here's a LO I made using it. These are the pics of my friends, Missy & Dwight, from their last pregnancy. Credits can be seen here.


Weekend Plans

We don't have much planned for this weekend. Tonight, we're going to the World of Wheels with my parents. Christian is obsessed with cars in general, so he's going to love it. THEN, we found out the life sized Lightning McQueen is going to be there!!! AHHHH!!! Christian is going to literally have a stroke when he sees it! LOL.... I'll be sure to post pics on Monday! The lady is coming to look at our house on Sunday night, so there will be a lot of cleaning/de-cluttering/hiding before then. Want to make the house look as good as possible, 'ya know?!?! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I'll be back to chat on Monday morning! {{HUGS}}
