The Good, The Busy and the...

not sure what else. There's no ugly going on, just BUSY and maybe tired ;) Grandma and Grandpa's visit came to an end much to the chagrin of the little people who were getting used to all the extra attention. Little Miss is still rocking the kindergarten thing. This month she was one of 7 in her class to get all her testing 100% right. She has the memory that I USED to have before I had kids lol. She also just finished a 6 class Karate class, which I really wasn't sure if she was going to like at all. But she loved it and is asking to do more! (she is the one in ALL purple).

The Little Dude is busy being 4, starting to turn on the attitude and turn off the listening ears, but for the most part he is still my little sweet boy:

As for me? I just got back a card I had published in Create: Quick and Easy and I layout I had published in the March issue of Scrapbook Trends. This is the first box of goodies I received from them and the first time I got to see one of MY creations in a magazine. Exhilarating for sure. Totally beats having my law review article published because I know that more than my family and friends will see it lol!

And the layout from my last post was spotted on the Jillibean Soup blog this week HERE. Speaking of Jillibean Soup, I do have one layout I can share.  The design of this one just makes me happy so I think I need to scraplift myself lol and do this again:
One last bit of news...The online scrapbook event True Scrap is taking place this weekend! Scrapbook Circle is offering anyone who signs up through THIS LINK a $15 gift certificate to the Scrapbook Circle store!! Holy cow!! Is that awesome or what??!!
And on that note, have a great night!
