Wow...I am on a see any Layout bigger, just click on the pic!

Well I have had some great opportunities to go crafting lately so I have some projects to share with you!

I am also excited to announce that I will be going on my very 1st retreat in April!!!! So excited, 4 of us girls have registered so far, and I hope I am able to attend all 4 days, but will have to play it by ear....We are allowed to bring alcohol as well, and get to bunk together, can you spell F-U-N? I am a tad concerned though as I have never scrapped drunk before. ha ha ha, I will of course be on my best behavior!!! Here are the details if anyone is interested...

Hope you enjoy all the craftiness, my mojo has been over flowing lately...hope it stays! Which is your fave??? Have a colorful day!!!!

Dreams do come true! and a giveaway!

especially if you harrass your husband for almost a year and get your in-laws to back you up ;) I finally got to paint my kitchen green this morning, after much begging and pouting and it was worth every minute! I adore it! It is so fresh, I can't wait o go find some fun stuff to jazz it up with, new tea towels, throw rug, decorations, maybe a couple of shelves? Of the possibilities! I apologize for the crappy lighting it is actually better in real life for sure!

Here is the before:

And the after:

And to celebrate this momentous and joyous occasion I am giving away a card kit from Scrapbook Zone isn't it adorable? I won this and some other cool things off Ali Edwards blog last month. It is super cute and easy to put together as everything is done for you!

So to win this super cute card kit leave me a comment about what you want changed in your house this year?
