What a GrEaT weekend!

so my weekend could not have been any better...it started off with a crop and i got to meet this awesome lady...i can't tell you how happy i get when someone comes into my life that i know will be part of it for a very long time. EsPeCiAlLy when that someone is a scrappy buddy ;)

so here are andrea and i at our crop....this is getting pretty late into the night and we just did some damage at the store.

Here are a few fun facts I learned about andrea this weekend:

1.) she can work a cricut like it's her j.o.b.
2.) she is even nicer in person that i could have imagined.
3.) she is an enabler {yes, i really did need those thickers, LOL!}






this is me staking my territory on the Creative Cafe buttons;)



There are so many give-a-ways going on...I wanted to post a few of my favs...

Melissa is giving away a sLiCe!

and Nikki Silvis is offering loads of give-a-ways too...click here.

So let me leave you with a layout I did today...Citrus Tree Studios, a fun place where i hang...is having a Christmas in July crop so I made this will lots of scraps from Making Memories, BoBunny, 7 Gypsies, SR, Prima and then some!
