I have some exciting news to share! I was selected to be one of the newest Design Team members for Scrap-N-Circle. It is an online scrapbook store. It's filled with enthusiastic, creative women. I'll be designing for them every other month. So, a big shout out goes to Jeri for giving me this opportunity. Thanks!

I actually just completed a layout for a challenge posted by Michelle Strach. It was a LOVE Challenge. I was to list what I love about the person/people I chose and have a heart somewhere on the layout. This is what I came up with.

I'm currently getting ready to attend our Semi-annual Scrap-a-Way. It's three days and two nights of scrapping bliss! I simply can't wait! I have one draw back at this point and it is a chest cold!!! Can you believe it! What the heck??? I'm also thinking we need to have some sort of name for our group. I must talk to our leader...

My Mother will be here tomorrow afternoon from Michigan to help watch over the little children whilst I'm away. Yes, she's a saint!

One more bit of news is the fact that after 10 years of living in this house, we're having it painted! Yeah, Baby! And, wait for it....wait for it...we're getting shutters too!!! Color me excited. It's going to be a tan house with blue shutters. I can't wait to see the transformation. I forgot to mention that Charlie has been preparing the house for painting and needed a little help with the fascia. For those of you who don't know what fascia is, it is a flat board or band used as molding. The particular piece that I was helping him install was on the garage. Long story short, I had to ascend a steep ladder. NOT FUN!!!! Needless to say, I made is safely back down to the ground. Whew!

Last, but not least, I would like to share this darling photo of my daughter, Kaila. She'll be three next month. I just can't believe it!

Thanks for taking a peek and sharing in my excitement!
