What A Night, I WON, and Guest Designer!!

What a night for the U.S. I voted yesterday, and I watched a lot of the election coverage. I heard a little excerpt this morning of a part of Barack Obama's speech, and it really made me smile. He was thanking his daughters, and he told them "I love you both so much, and you have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House." Now, isn't that the cutest thing ever? No matter what, no matter who, I really hope that the economy will be on an upswing. John McCain's concession speech was very gracious. I was very impressed with it. The United States is an amazing country, and I'm honored and privileged to be an American!

Next, I want to tell you all that I am so excited! I WON the Paper Crafts Magazine "Name The Editor" contest! Thank you if you voted for MY entry. Kelly will now be known as "Online Editor Extraordinaire", and I truly think it's a great title for her! You can check out the post announcing ME as the winner. I am just thrilled! I am one of the luckiet bloggers around! I know that, and I'm overwhelmed about that! I truly hope that Kelly likes her new title!!

Last for today, but certainly not least, I am happy to have a guest designer! Emily created this page for a challenge at a NEW site called Kids Can Scrap! Yes, they can!



The first challenge at the site was to create a "You" page. Emily worked on this yesterday. She did an amazing job! Emily LOVES to type, and she did her journaling on the computer. She included her signature, which I thought was a GREAT touch! I just love this, and I'm so proud of how much time and detail she put into it! LOVE IT!

I also want to tell you about some blog candy at Becky's site. Check it out! Becky is so sweet, and she has two of the cutest boys you'll ever see! Well, I'm taking Princess for a bath today. She's a stinky dog! Just kidding, but she does need a bath! It's always a struggle, because she does NOT like baths! I hope you all have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
