life...

Hello and Happy Saturday!

Any fun Halloween weekend plans?  We have soccer games today AND tomorrow...I'm just hoping for dry weather:)

I have a tag to share this morning...sorry for the photog....this little whipper snapper just would NOT cooperate!

It seems that yesterday AND today it has been Wplus9 day on my blog:)


Today's tag uses Woodgrain Silhouettes....I LOVE the flowers in that set...I used Memento Angel Pink on it...such a soft & soothing color...

I was inspired by the Wplus9 Color Cue challenge...
You probably can't tell but my thread that I used is a pale gray...did you see the whimsical zig zagging:)

The quote is my screensaver at work...isn't it true though?  The joys and difficulties in life prepare you for other events in your life...makes you stronger and more thankful for what you have...that's how I feel now...I'm so grateful for my life...for the people that are part of it...

My 3 Year Blogaversary is coming up...it is actually in 1 week...so stayed tuned for a Candy Extravaganza!!!!  Woot Woot!!!!

♥♥happy mail♥♥

Okay, now who doesn't know Julie Tucker-Wolek :):):):):):) [I 'had' to include those!].....check out the goodness she sent me!!!!!!!


Pssstttt...The polka dot pattern paper is named JULIE!!!!!  Now how stinkin' coolio is that?!!!!

Next up is Sherry! ..gotta love the candy...they will make me 'more smarter'!

I have to tell you 'all...Sherry has GOT to be thee most generous bloggie buddie ever...that woman is always spoiling me with goodies...check out the Memory Box Tinsel goodies she included!


Thanks sooooooo much ladies....you're thee best!
