Some Exciting News!


Good Saturday morning everyone! It is a great morning because a lot is happening! :D Nick finally got his truck today and it is sweet! It's a very sharp looking truck and I can tell that he is happier than a clam! That just makes me so happy too! I also am excited because my parents and my younger brother (who's not so young) are coming to visit today! Woohoo! They are coming all the way from Iowa! I miss them so much! The last piece of exciting news is probably the most exciting! Here it is. Last night I found out that I was the Paper Pretties Cutie Pie! :D Christie asked us to send in our submissions and she picked mine! You can see the card she picked here! I was so shocked! It was a dream come true for me! I am so excited about these new stamps too! Anyway that was huge for me and the party last night was a blast! Here is one of the projects that I made during it! Charmaine challenged us to make a 3-D creation and since I stink at 3-D creations I had to go with this simple seed packet holder (yes I know that is a kool-aid packet)! I really like how it turned out even though my hands were shaking the entire time I was working on it. We only had an hour to work on it so I was quite nervous! 

Well, that's all I have to share right now! I hope that you all have a wonderful day! Nick and I are going to go to Colorado Springs so that I can go to some teacher stores. Leanne also told me that one of the teacher stores has a stamp store in the parking lot so...you know...I may just possibly peek my head in there! :D Hehe! Until tomorrow! Have a good one!

Recipe:
Stamps: Paper Pretties (Simply Special)
Paper: Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, Regal Rose, Watercolor
