BMW, Adam's first day of High School, a guest designer and 2 DT call's! :):):)

Hi everyone :):):)

*phew* a lot to share today!! :):):)


Yesterday we started a new A to Z challenge over at Scrapbookers Anonymous! :):):):):)  For our first A to Z challenge its the letter "A" .... we want you to dig into your scrapbook stash and pull out manufacturers that start with the letter "A"! :):):) I used American Crafts on my layout! :):):) I have had these papers, thickers and stickers FOREVER (YES! My name is Julie and I am a hoarder! lol!) and thought this picture of Brookie was PERFECT with these American Crafts papers! :):):)



And for those that are curious about my "bmw" title... that is Brookie's initials... just like her Daddy :)

Hope you all can join us! :):):):):)


And yesterday was Adam's first day of High School! I was wayyyy nervous for him... but he did good... even though I had a phone confrontation with the cranky office lady after school... but other than that.... all was good for Adam :):):):):)




And today over on the Nikki Sivils blog we are sharing our Guest Designer's work for this month!! This month we are honored to have Allison Davis with us! YAY!! Head on over to Nikki's blog and check out her creations! :):):)


And Sketchy Thursdays is having a DT CALL!!! YAYYYYYYYY!! Diana and Heidi are amazing to work for! Come and TRY OUT!! Here are all the details! :):):)
