Sunday 2/22

No snow to awake to today, we got 3 inches yesterday. Not much new on the home front. Nicole is looking for work, she is doing some subing. Tyler is in school doing his generals.

The edition of SNR came out yesterday, it is so cool to see my 5 layouts in there. Another magazine is wanting to put a different LO in there e-zine for March.
Today I am going to work on my deck of me, since I got my scrap space cleaned up from my last project.
I am trying to up load a slide show on here but I am having trouble hopefully I will figure it out.

Have a great Sunday.

Using my stash

So I created this fun layout of my MoM, she is in Arizona right now, since Oct and I have been missing her. It ended up being sentimental and I could express my toughts about my mom, the single picture on the Lo on the right, you can see me when I was 11, in the corner of the photo. Everything used in the Layouts was from my stash,except the Petaloo flowers, the paper I have had for at least 2 years. The buttons are antique ones we have collected.

Products used :

Paper Bohemia by My Minds Eye line ~ Rhinestones by Queen and Co.~ Ribbon and Thickers by American craft ~ Flowers by Bazzil, Petaloo, Imaginisce ~ Stckles _glitz by Ranger ~ CTMH ink~ M - Ranger reinkers ~ Metal Pinewheels by Krafty Kraft ~ Rub ons CTMH ~

Being Published

I am so excited, I submitted Layouts to
and they have choosen all 5 of them to publish in there E-zine issue that will be released on Feb. 21. This is the first time I have submitted, I am so happy.
