Feelin' Good

I finally feel betta!!!! I caught the cold from the kiddies and of course it turned in to a sinus infection..ugh! I've taken all my meds, so there's just a little of the yucky stuff left. Unfortunately something has struck Marisa again and she's home from school. Please summer come quickly!!

I was just on my J4K gal pal Shanna's blog -- love her :)-- and see that she added my blog to hers!! Thanks, Shanna!!! It makes me feel important...*big smile*

I haven't posted this as of yet, but I was very honored and excited to be referred by Shanna's sweet sister, Deanna, to their friend Ginger for a design team position at her up-and-coming awesome site Keepsake Trends. I was soooooooo geeked!!! Ginger gave me the fantastic position as a DT member in charge of Ad/Product inspiration which is right up my alley.

I posted my first challenge about a week ago and I'll show you what I came up with.
Here was the item I chose for inspiration:


And here's what it inspired me to do:


I wanted more beachy kind of stuff on it, but alas I couldn't find anything that warranted me to attach it. I like it though -- simple looking, but took me forever to put it together. What I really love is the picture of Marisa. She's always been such a beauty in my eyes -- of course that has nothing to do with being her mom..lol

I'm off to scrap! I must complete my March Note-to-Self Challenge at J4K which is due by the end of March -- where did March go? Plus, I am in the middle of my Janet Evanovich book, To the Nines. I am so in love with this series of books. I would recommend it to anyone -- kind of comical, sarcastic, some violence and horror, all the good stuff!! And at J4K, we're starting a new book The Secret Life of Bees. I'm looking forward to it.

Have a great day!
