My GINORMOUS Ebay dealio & a layout!

Don't ya just love that word "dealio"? It's hysterical to me! If you've seen the movie Napoleon Dynamite you'll know that was said by Uncle Ricco! What a character! ROFL! I know, stupid movie but it's so dumb it's funny! Okay, I'm cracking myself up!

Anyway,I was reading through my subscribed blogs the other night and came across a post on Adrienne Kennedy's (from My Sentiments Exactly) blog. She had mentioned that MSE was selling units of 100+ sentiment stamps on Ebay and it totally caught my eye. I went to the auction and the current bid was $15.00. I think they were selling either 10 or 20 units between 2 auctions, so I figured I had a chance. Well, I got the dealio for $17! Woohoo!! Check it out! Just a few stamps for my stash, lol! I can't wait to get them!



I also have a couple layouts to share with you. This week, I scrapped a layout using the Fancy Pants Daily Grind line. Sheesh, I just love Fancy Pants these days! I also have the Summer Soiree line coming to me soon!

This is my sister and I last October. She was in a very serious car accident last summer and broke her back in 2 places. On this particular day in this photo, she had just had her back brace removed after having it on for 3 months. It was a day with varying emotions. I am so deeply grateful that she is still on this Earth with me. I can't imagine life without my sister. I just love her so much!
