Great News!

My layouts from Scrapbook Trends have been found and have arrived back home safely!!! (LOL! I know you were all "worried"! LOL!) I am so happy and Jason's so happy to not hear me gripe about it anymore! They sent me an extra box of goodies too to replace the lost originals but they all got here at the same time. I may do an RAK soon to share my extras.

I did this page for Random Chaos this week.

The challenge is to create a non-rectangle/non-square page. I chose a circle. I just loved the papers and embellishments that were in the Scarlet Lime kit and mostly used stuff from it. I really love how it turned out and others must have too cause it was chosen as LOTD at Create My Keepsake on Tuesday!

We went to the zoo a couple of weeks ago and that was one of the photos I got of Drew. I got some other good ones that I'll have to post later. She actually seemed to get into the whole zoo thing this time. She looked at the animals more than she has in the past. She also got to walk around a bit instead of staying stuck in the stroller or the wagon and of course she liked that!

Drew's been pubbed!

I've been meaning to post this but kept forgetting to do so! Drew's cutie face has been in several magazines lately!

Scrapbook Trends March 2008: I didn't make this page. My friend Leslie did (but I did get a little photo credit there!) It's in a frame on my wall!

Scrapbook Trends Embellish Idea Book: This is my first pub with ST. I just love this pic of Drew. She was peeking around the stair post at me when I was trying to take her photo!

This was published in Somerset Studios in February. I'ts a wall hanging I made for Sarah's birthday a few years ago. That's me and her many, many years ago!

I also have a page in the April issue of ST. I'm a little sad that I may never see those 2 pages again though. I've been waiting and waiting for their return, along with my copies of the magazines and goodies. I emailed to see when they would arrive and was told that they had been sent to my PO box through USPS instead of to my house via Fed Ex. That would be fine if I actually had a PO box! Who knows where my pages will end up! I have no idea how they could have made that mistake as my name and address are on the back of each page.

Anyone care to guess?

What in the world did UPS do with this box? I mean seriously! That one end was actually formed by bits of cardboard and tape! Surprisingly the contents of this box were unharmed! How they managed to survive, I do not know!

My other issue with UPS is that they refuse to put my packages on the front porch. Instead they place them on the driveway in front of the garage doors. Everytime! They have to drive past my front door to get to the side of the house where the garage is! The front porch is covered--the perfect place to keep packages dry in this unpredictable East Texas weather--but noooooo on the driveway they go! The other day it was raining and Jason comes in the house with a dripping plastic bag. In it was a package from UPS. They had put it into a bag and TAPED it to my garage door! If I had opened the garage door from the inside (as I would have had to do to get out!), it could have been squashed or gotten stuck! What the heck? Another day Jason went out to find a box on the hood of his Jeep! Totally not cool!

Pink Paislee at Simply Obsessed!

The April newsletter was posted today and I am so excited to finally be able to share my stuff! I love love love this Pink Paislee line! It coordinates perfectly with our photos from Easter. (It almost looks like someone may have planned it that way! LOL!) All of these photos are from Papa's birthday party and Easter with the family. Have lots more to share too! Drew became a professional egg hunter!

This one is my sketch layout. Drew calls all dogs "fuff" so I had to make a page about it!

If you want to see the pages better, just click on the pic! It should make it bigger.
