Just a tad to share with y'all today. First of all, I was featured in this month's newletter. I was sooo excited. The layout I did with the sketch Becky provided is called "Photoshoot Madness." I was so excited to get the sketch and see my layout in the newsletter. I know I've said it before, but I'll say it again...I just love PAGE MAPS!!!

Secondly, I have had a few people ask how my ear stapling has been going. Well, I did sleep very well after I had the procedure done, but I wasn't seeing the results with the appetite control. So, I went and had two sets put in each ear. Let me tell hurt like a son of a gun!!! Holy cow! If it doesn't work this time, I'll just take them out and be done with it. I do still sleep VERY well though. It's worth it just for that.

Thirdly, The Memory Safe's Scraptathalon is coming to a close this evening. It's been great. I posted a mini challenge at the beginning of the week regarding the cleaning of scrap areas. I actually completed some of that and here is an after shot of what I was able to do. It isn't finished by any stretch, but it's way better than it was.

Fourthly, and certainly not to be put towards the bottom of my "list," is ScrapNCircle's Survivor competition. I made it to the second round! Yeehaa!! I just love being able to complete the challenges. These girls are so spunky and creative. I just love it!

Blake, Kaila and I also took a field trip to Apple Castle in New Castle, PA, complete with hay ride and demonstration of the Apple-Picking process. We then were able to purchase some items in their store, including freshly made donuts. YUM!!!!

I hope to be able to scrap something this evening. How about you?

Holy cow! You got stapled?? OUCH!! That part of my ear is really sensitive. I don't think I could sit still long enough for that! Good luck girl. You deserve it to work after enduring THAT pain! lol

I love the LO it is just beautiful. Those papers are so yummy. Your scrap space looks great. I wish I had as big of an area as you have. Then my stuff wouldn't have to be situated in three different spots in my home. Oh well some day!
