Happy Blogaversary to me!

Well, I've officially been blogging for a year. That is great! This is my 99th post. That averages to more than one a week and once a week was my goal. I enjoy this outlet but mostly I love looking at the blogs of others. This card is a good example. I CASED this card from WANDA (the Starlight Stamper) to create the lovely mother's day greeting below for my MIL. I have learned a ton this year from the other amazing bloggers out there. I knew I wanted to immitate her card but wasn't at the computer when I needed to make this card. So, I tried to case her by memory. It turned out okay. Hers was more embellished and looked a bit more "finished". I stamped the circles on the inside too and it looked cute. Well, maybe for my blogaversary and my 100th post I'll but together some blog candy....hmmm...that is a Fabulous idea!

On a Personal Note: School is getting closer to the end and I can't even describe how that thrills me. Since we decided to stay the school year has been really hard. I am looking forward to the summer. Before school is even out Zoe and I are headed to Colorado/Kansas for my cousin Kasi's wedding. Zoe is going to stay on with my mom for a few extra days by herself! Wow huh? We are going to try to have a summer schedule - pool days, gymnastics class, mommy's day out, stamp open house, play dates. I am really looking forward to it. The end of June, early July we will go to Illinois to see Brett's family. We have a niece that is almost 6 months old we haven't met yet and another neice that will be born any minute that we will get to meet. That should be a great trip as well. I have dreams of going to the Stampin' Up conference I just don't know if I can afford it. But, we'll see. What are your summer plans? I love the time off I have to say. I hope to make the most of it!

Talk to you soon and Lots of love,
