Wow! 2 posts - 1 day!

I also made a card for the Outlawz, Monday is greeting card challenge day. It used to be Birthday Monday's, but has been changed over the last month. Completely fine by me, doesn't matter what kind of card I make, just as long as I'm playing with my paper.

BBTB2 Disney Cart Challenge

BBTB2 is having a Disney Challenge this week. I do not have the cart that Maria suggested, but I do have this one. My niece Lauren just loves Arial. This card is for her birthday. I also made a couple of 12 x 12's to frame so she can hang them on her wall at college. Lauren was one of the funny girls in the high school musical, Beauty & the Beast.

Now that my fun is done, I have to work on dinner. 2 hungry guys to feed, clean up then plopping my butt down for the evening. It's American Pickers night!

Just a couple of more days until the magazine is out! I'm so excited for the April issue! The layouts of my daughter's wedding are being published! I still can't believe it!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great night!

Much Needed Mental Therapy

Just a few things I worked on today. My mental therapy was greatly needed. A very close friend of mine lost her mom on Friday. Nancy lost her battle with cancer. She fought a courageous fight. Nancy was like my mom. I spent enough of my late teens/early 20's at her house. I lovingly called her mom. Nancy, I will miss you dearly. I know you are not suffering anymore. Heaven gained another angel.

These creations are for the challenges over at the Outlawz. I was bound and determined to figure out my posting issues, but right now I just can't. Lack of concentration. I apologize for my blog being disarray.

At the end of the week, my scrapbook layouts will be published by I'm excited. I've also set up and ETSY store, but have yet to stock my "shelves."

As always, have a great night and thanks for stopping by.

Hello Again

Here are just a few of my new creations. Everything seen here are for the challenges over at the Outlawz. I will figure out my picture posting issue on this blog, someday.

I have exciting news! I am being published in the April Issue of Scrapbooking.Com's magazine! I still can not believe it! I am facebook friends with them. In January they posted a post, "show us what you've been working on lately." So...I did. I had just finished a couple of layouts of from my daughter's wedding. Later in the week, I received a message from Jami Petersen, Editor in Chief. She wrote me saying that she would like to publish my layouts in an upcoming issue and asked if I would be interested. YES!! I'm counting down the days until the issue comes out. lol I really need to keep my blog up to date, this could turn out to be an opportunity of a lifetime. Someone out there may be interested in publishing some of my paper addiction creations. If time allows over the weekend, I'm going to check into an ETSY store. You just never know.
As always, thanks for stopping by. Please don't be shy, let me know you were here. Let me know if you have seen something that you like, something that you don't like, or how I could do something better.
Have a great night!
