On cloud 9, on cloud 9, on cloud 9!! I received the best piece of mail today (aside from all the lovely recipe cards from SBO's recipe swap..thanks ladies!)... our confirmation letter from Cathi in Siesta Key, Florida, (see my banner!) confirming our vacation reservations!! I can hardly stand it! This will be our 3rd year going and I can hardly wait! Awwwwww...I can already feel the sand between my toes! :)

In my scrapping world, it's been a very productive and creative last few weeks. I had an absolute ball participating in the SBO July Contest! I have 3 LO's and a card that I'm very proud of! All of the entries were awesome and I think it pulled some of us out of our scrappin' slump. Maryfrances, owner and Big Sis of SBO, posted Augusts' Contest Details today and it sounds like another fun one! Come on over and join the fun! You won't be sorry! Carolyn was also sweet enough to host a Christmas in July contest. The winner will be randomly picked and will receive a MM foam stamps/paint set. Which by the way...C's little boy Seth just picked the winner and she's holding us all hostage about it! LOL...anyway, the challenge was fun! I combined Carolyn's challenge with MF's "Friendship" Weekend Challenge and completed a LO using my good friend, Brendas', photo. Thanks for the super photo Brenda and thanks for the challenge C and MF! Here's my LO. (I tried to upload the rest of my LO's from July's Contest but Blogger is being a pain!)

On my scrap table right now....I'm looking forward to working in Patty's circle journal next. Her theme is "Why I like being a girl". Should be a fun project. I also need to start working on my nieces Sophmore HS year album. Her mom brought all the newspaper clippings, report cards, photos and awards over, so that's also on my list of things to start. I scrapped her Freshman year last year as well and it turned out nice. Add a couple of cards to this week's "to do" list and Corey's "Hand-write your title" Challenge and I'm all set. Hope I didn't forget anything! WHEW!

Bought a 1 GB memory card for my digi. I had a 256 MB card but with vacation coming up, I wanted one that would hold a LOT more photos so I went for it! Can't wait to fill it up! I have a feeling I'll be taking both of them! LOL...

Hope everyone is well. Look for my next post in the fall...LOL! Totally sarcastic there...I'm going to make a good, solid effort to keep this up. It's fun once I sit and post. I know if I'd do it more often it wouldn't be such a loooooooooooooooooong post! :)

BTW Mf....thanks for the push! ;)
