More Goodies

I got some more fantastic goodies from Jen at ScrapCity! I won two of her month-long challenges, and this is the RAK that she sent to me. Isn't it fabulous?


She made me a gorgeous card, and then she sent a bunch of flowers, chipboard centers, some rhinestones, some rhinestone brads, and a couple of flower clips. All of these are from a Lisa Bearnson kit that was sold on QVC. It was such a dark, wet, cold, and gloomy day here yesterday, and this was like receiving a little bit of spring in an envelope! Totally made my day! Thank you so much Jen!

I was wondering if anyone has heard about the man that is selling his life! I read this on the Yahoo News page yesterday. Apparently, this man is tired of his life, so he's going to sell it to someone else. He's in Perth, Australia, and he's getting rid of it all. Check out his site if you get a chance: http://www.alife4sale.com/. I found it to be very interesting! He's selling it all on June 22nd, and after the fact, he says, "I intend to walk out of my front door with my wallet in one pocket and my passport in the other, nothing else at all, and get on the train, with no idea where I am going or what the future holds for me." Like I said . . . interesting!!

OK, I never got to the cards that I wanted to make yesterday, so I don't have anything new to show you. I DID work on the scrapbook that I was contracted to make. However, I can't show that to you, because the photos don't belong to me. I want to make some cards today . . . we'll see how that goes! I also need to run a few errands. I have nothing for Easter! I need to get some goodies! PLUS, I want to get out and buy "Enchanted" on DVD. My girls and I saw it at the theatre, and it was fantastic! To me, it's a "must own" DVD!

Have a great day! I'll definitely have something to show you tomorrow, and thanks for stopping by!

Fun stuff! I think we might 'need' Enchanted too. We took the kids and it was so much fun watching my 3 year old daughter getting into it! I forgot the big release was yesterday...maybe the Easter Bunny will have to pick it up.
