Hipstamatic Love and Other Great News!

Thanks to Kimberly Brimhall, I have discovered a new toy for my iPhone, the Hipstamatic camera! Oh my word! You really need to check it out. You can take these really cool vintage style pictures with it. I got it a couple of days ago and I have been having oodles of fun taking various pictures with it.

I am excited to announce that Scrapstreet is having a design team call! Now don't be bashful. Even if you are not sure whether to apply or not, just do it! You will never know if you will make the team unless you give it a try. It's a great team to be on too. :) Here are the specifics....

Happy Friday!

TGIF! I have a busy weekend ahead of me. I have cakes to make, decorations to put up, adn presents to wrap, all in preparation for my oldest daughter's birthday. I really hope the weather is nice on Sunday so that we can have the party outside and play with chalk and bubbles. We shall see. If not, there is always fun to be had indoors.

Did you know that GCD is having a HUGE giveaway? It's a super easy contest too! All you have to do is head to your nearest Archiver's and take a picture of yourself with the GCD Chipart Tool Display and create something fabulous with the tool. Easy peasy. For more information on the contest check out the post here. And while you are checking out the post, make sure to grab the blinkie too! There will be another giveaway for those people who have this blinkie on their blog. :)

I am completely at a loss for words! I received a call from Heidi on Monday afternoon asking me if I would like to be part of GCD's Facebook Team! I about fell off of my chair when I heard that. Of course I said yes! What a wonderful opportunity this will be to work with GCD and all the other wonderful ladies. Even 2 days later I am still over the moon about this great news! Thanks for much for the wonderful opportunity Heidi and GCD! Take a few moments to check out the other ladies who made the GCD Facebook Team here.

She's One

I am still in shock that my little baby turned one this week! The party went well and she LOVED the icing on her cake. The cake itself...well not so much. Hehe. Now it's time to start the preparation for my oldest birthday party. Two birthdays in one month you say? Yep. My girls are both March babies!

Not only am I happy that this crazy week is over, but I get to get ready to head to an all day crop tomorrow. Woohoo! I can get my scrap on for an entire day! I can't wait! I already have most of my pictures printed out and tonight I just need to pack my supplies. Hopefully I won't forget something. I have a bad habit of doing that whenever I head out to crops.

Time to head out to work but I will leave you with one picture from Jaina's birthday party. Have an awesome day everyone!
