Hi Everyone!

Tomorrow my baby boy (Brandon) is turning 17! I can't believe it, where has all the time gone, it's gone way too fast though, I know that for sure! 
The poor guy has an exam tomorrow & they don't celebrate Birthdays at the Military School he attends, so he will have to wait to celebrate when he comes home in March for Spring Break.

I didn't want the day to go by without anything though, so I baked him some brownies & sent them along with this card I made for him. Hopefully he will get them tomorrow, they were supposed to arrive today, but I haven't heard from him (not unusual though). I won't get into it now, but being a parent of a child who attends an away Military School is very hard!!! 

I'm hoping to get a serious laugh out of him on this card, because this is sooo not him!!!
Brandon is so physically active in sports like Football & Lacrosse & LOVES weightlifting! The girls are going to LOVE him, he's tall, handsome & has all the muscles! He doesn't know this yet, but when he is home this summer he is going to be my
I think it turned out really cute & am entering it in some challenges that are listed below. Love it when you have a card in mind & can find challenges that fit it so perfectly!

Hi Everyone!
I know it's been a while since my last post, but I promise to post a project soon. For today, though I wanted to share this blogger that I found who is having her Book launched today & having a party to celebrate with huge giveaways! I'm not just sharing for the giveaway, but also wanted to share the book, it's called "A Sweethaven Summer" by Courtney Walsh. This book looks like such a great read, it's about a long lost scrapbook, yes I said scrapbook (as she is a fellow scrapper) full of memories & secrets. I can only imagine how fun this book could be, so be sure you check out the link & check out her new book.
