A Week Later

Wow, I just realized that it's been a week since I last updated my blog. No reason why I haven't done it sooner, other than I just haven't had much to blog about. Plus I've been extremely busy working on 15 mini albums that I'm making for a good cause (more on that later).
The other day, I did manage to take a break from the books & do a layout (above). I am SO happy with the way this layout turned out! I think it's my favorite one to date :) I used the Making Memories Noteworthy line along with pink Stickles, eyelets (yep, I still use them :), Heidi Swapp flower, Basic Grey clip which I attached an epoxy sticker to the center & some ribbons from Target's $ spot. I printed out the journaling on the sheet that came inside the package of glitter stickers which matches the Noteworthy line. The layout looks so much better in person......my scanner is currently broken, so I have to take pictures of all of my layouts right now. But trust me, everything is straight IRL.

Tonight, Jim & I went to Dave's 50th Birthday Party (Cindy's husband) & had a blast! She made the most delicious dark chocolate cake.....it was absolutely the best cake I have ever had! I told her that she has to give me the recipe so I can make it for Jim's birthday in 2 weeks :) We just got home a little while ago, which explains why I'm still up at 2:00 am. And I figured I might as well update my blog now since I'm wide awake.

Remember when I posted last week that the temps were supposed to reach 50 degrees? Well, it ended up getting even warmed than that.....we hit a new record of 64 degrees the other day! Plus, at one point, we were under a tornado watch & had some really bad thunderstorms. And now, all the snow that we got on New Year's Day is just a faded memory. But at least I can scrap that memory since I took a lot of pictures of it :) It was so nice though, to take my Charger out of the garage & I even opened the sunroof.....in JANUARY! But now, reality is back & it's cold again. And snow is in the forecast for the next couple of days....I don't think they're calling for much accumulation, though. Ah well.....I guess I can't complain.....afterall, it IS still Winter! But when you get a taste of Spring like that, it truly makes you want it even more!

Guess I better get to bed....back to working on the albums tomorrow.

Have a great Sunday!
