Surprises all around!

Today has been a great day for playing with paper!  I got some good news, twice!   Apparently, I am the September Sketch winner over in the Newsletter at Fancy Pants!  I am on page 16!  This is the layout that I won with.....

I also won the $100 a Day Creativity Contest over at  Here is that layout, you just saw it yesterday:o)

I feel really honored and blessed to be a part of the opportunities that have been presented to me.  I really enjoy playing with paper and am extremely excited to be sharing my hobby with others that enjoy it too.  I have self doubt.  Question my abilities.  Wonder if others will like it.  It doesn't matter.   I really love it and my son's wife will hate me for all the books she will have to do something with.  But, I don't care:o)  Not sure I am fond of her anyway!  Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you.

Today with Grumpo

I have been waiting for the perfect papers for these photos that I actually printed months ago.  I  love the photos.  One shows how intense my boy is, perfecting his Lego.  Doing Legos with someone is always better than doing them alone.  He seems to always coerce Grampy into doing one with him when he comes to town!

I used my Studio Calico kit, Underground and the add-on, Piccadilly.  I recently cancelled my Project Life subscription to jump on another kit club that I noticed just started.  But, it did not stop me from purchasing an add-on kit.  I always feel like I am going to miss something good if I don't get it:o(  I am a sucker for good advertising, pretty pictures and design team inspiration.  
Here are a few close ups....

My boy adores his Grandfather.  They are both very lucky.

Thanks for stopping by.
