Much to Celebrate


Today is my birthday and my husband surprised me with some beautiful earrings (silver loops - my favorite) and the Chaco Sandals below.  The earrings will dress up my casual Colorado life style, because honestly I would wear the Chacos to a business meeting if I could - LOL.
I am also celebrating that tomorrow the Fall issue of Scrapbooking and Beyond Magazine will hit newsstands and my little Maddie is featured on the cover! What a wonderful birthday to have so much to celebrate.
I was lucky enough to have three pages featured in this issue.  The cover page is from the Gadeget Girls series featuring cool new tools from the industry.  You can actually sign up to win the GCD Chipart Tools that I used to create my page.  Just follow the link HERE.   My page features Jillibean Soup, Little Yellow Bicycle, Nikki Sivils and GCD Studios.
My friend, Robbie Herring, and I wrote a really cute column called Krafty Friends which tells how we met and began our wonderful friendship.  We each have a few pages featured using the ever popular kraft paper.
This page features some awesome corrugated kraft paper from Creative Imaginations and Little Yellow Bicycle's Pack Your Bags collection.  My son had such a great time choosing a pumpkin last fall and I love how this collection captures the colors of the season and the sentiment of the excursion.
This page of my daughter features some Jillibean Soup staples kraft paper and the Elementary Collection from Simple Stories.  I love reds and kraft paper always seems to make it pop without going overboard.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
