Happy National Scrapbooking Day!!!

Yes! In case you wondered there *IS* a day honoring this AWESOME hobby! :D :D :D Gotta love it!

I am on cloud nine! I had the best day yesterday . . . Here's why!

FIRST, I found out that I made the Urban Anthology Design Team!!! I've been competing in a Design Star Challenge over there for the last several weeks and have had so much fun! The team over there is amazing! The kits are amazing! And I feel so honored to be able to join them! Thank you, Kari!!!



Just check out the May Kit!!! This gorgeous kit is sold out, but Kari has more on order and you have until the 15th to request to be on the Waiting List HERE (email Kari).







SECOND, my friend, Tawya Parker, brought me this adorable purse she made for me. I LOVE IT!!! I just love the colors, the buttons, EVERYTHING!!! And can you believe that it is made out of dishtowels?!!! Cool, huh?!!! (She also makes adorable seasonal dishtowels . . . I'll have to take a picture of those to share for next time.) Thanks, Tawnya!!! ;)



Then the mail came . . .

I received the INCREDIBLE Noel Mignon Penny Arcade kit (did you see my new fancy header? Yep! I made it with this gorgeous kit! :D)



and I received my Creating Keepsakes June 2009 magazine!

Check this out!



Yep! My first published layout!!! Woooooo to the Hoooooooo! :D :D :D



Now isn't that a fabulous way to start a weekend! I'm pretty excited about it all and can't stop smiling!

Thanks so much for letting me share!
Talk to you again, soon!

It's kind of liike a Kevin Bacon thingie. Anyway, I will be visiting your blog often. Your work is amazing!!!
