some more NSD

I am so pumped, i got a super fun email from Juliana that i won her RAK on her blog. It is loaded with Magistical Memories goodies! AND the polaroid frames i have been eyeing up :) thanks juliana!

Here is another NSD inspired project. It came from a challenge at CMK to use journal spots and a Papertrunk challenge to use kitchen items. So after looking through photos and "stuff", i realized these purple rubber bands that come on asparagus would be perfect to recycle on a layout AND they are purple and that is owen's school colors -- i have limited purple stuff with two boys.  i love the graph pp's on the backside of the Collage Press Papers, along with a staple of mine, Luxe Rubons.

Hey girl! What a cool LO! Of course only you would have the creative genius to use asparagus bands on a LO! Now you've got me rummaging through my trash! lol! I must tell ya, that photo of your little man is adorable. Of course, don't tell him I called him adorable, that might hurt his masculine pride...but he really is adorable!!!

Thanks for checking on me. I'm way OK! The "ordeal" I wrote about on Monday happened a few months ago. It just came up in conversation over the weekend and when I couldn't get good photos of my layouts from NSD, I decided to write about it. Must admit, it wasn't very fun, but it in hind sight, it was extremely funny!

My email is lhowards4n@yahoo.com. I think it is also linked on my profile! Take care and I can't wait to see more of your greatness!
