1944

I am sitting here with a smile on my face, thinking about all the good things in my life. A good dinner with my hubby and kids. Making fruit smoothies in our blender. Watching TV shows that make me giggle. Snuggling and reading out loud to Kyle. Tucking my girl in bed. Life is definitely enjoying all of those little things...... : )

On top of all that goodness, I just received Noel's newest kit in the mail today! NO, it isn't this kit below........it is THIS kit that isn't being sold to Friday! It is called Rise and Shine! Let me just tell you, it is such a fun happy kit! All of Noel's kits are fabulous and this new one is no exception! So I can't wait to get my butt upstairs and play! Hope to have some sneak peeks tomorrow!

Before I leave you though, I want to share a heritage LO of my MIL and her mom. I used Noel's Penny Arcade kit for this. It contains such beautiful soft papers and embellishments. I punched my own flowers, did a bit of sewing and distressing. I used an angel girl from Crafty Secret's Childhood Image & Journal Notes, to perch on top of the flowers. I also used my JustRite stamp for the sentiment.





I have some exciting news to share with you! I have become a part of Alex and Melissa's DT called Scrap & Stamp. Every other week the girls will host a different challenge. I am honored to be a part of this talented group! Go ahead and give them a visit!
WHEW! That was a long post! Thanks for sticking with me! : )
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!!!!!

Thank you for stopping to visit me! I am so glad you liked the little shoe that I made for Diana. It was a lot of fun to do. In visiting your site I love this lay out! I love the little girl with wings. She is kind the kind of thing that I am so into right now. I just made a lot of "Fairies in a jar" for a Trade Day Sale. Some folks in the general public just don't "GET" Altered Art. OH WELL! Glad we all have Blogland.

Congratulations for being part of a design team. What a fun challenge.
