Some great news and another layout

I received an email yesterday telling me some great news...I made the DT at the Dream Valley Challenge blog!

Pretty excited about that! I can't wait to start working with all of the talented ladies Melly has chosen :) Our first ever challenge (yes, this is a new challenge blog. It's nice to get in on the ground floor!) starts Sunday, so go follow this blog and join us! Great monthly sponsors, which equals great monthly prizes!!!!!!!!

I'll end with this layout I worked on all day yesterday for the A 2 Z Scraplets blog...I spent most of the day sorting through old photos and memorabilia I have in boxes/drawers in the craft room, and found some real treats. It was nice to go through it all, but man, I could have gotten more pages done if I hadn't! Anyway, here's a page featuring MAMBI Coastal Culture, an MME journaling card, random scraps of paper and ribbon from my stash, staples, Bazzill brads, and slightly rolled petal CM punched flowers. I rolled opposing edges of the photo here as well, lifting this technique from my fave scrap artist, Leeann Pearce. I'd seen her do this a few times, and felt this photo would work well with this technique, and I must say I love the result. This is a photo of my mom and dad on their wedding day back in 1978.






I will leave by saying I am awaiting a package from Stuff2Scrap that the aforementioned Leeann Pearce designs chipboard pieces for, and I can't WAIT...too bad it's coming all the way from Australia :( I want it NOW!

Hope you all have a great day...little man is feeling a bit better (but still a booger factory) and the middle kidlet is headed to a playdate with a friend from school. They are going to see Never Say Never, and I'm dreading what is to follow...my oldest girl has already seen it with her Grammie, so I'm sure I'll need ear plugs to block out the sound of the dreaded name Justin Bieber, which I already hear too much. I remember being a girl, though, and I loved me some NKOTB back in the day, so what can I really say about it? I just tune it all out while they clip pics of him from the tween magazines to tape to their wall. It's all good.
