Happiness is......and EXCITING news!!!!!

Hi everyone!!
I wanted to share my layout I made for the last Lily Bee sketch!!! It was due on the 16th (I shared it on the Facebook page then) ... but I wanted to share it here too!!! 


I used the Lily Bee Double Dutch papers and stickers that were in the April Artful Delight kit!!



The journaling reads ... "Happiness is --- her happy face...her serious face....either way... I love this face" 


And and and I have the winner for my Kanban Crafts stamps!!! The winner is.......

CINDY!!!!! 

Yay Cindy!! Please email your addy at bmwgirl@cox.net and I will get those out to you ASAP! :)


AND my EXCITING news.............

Some of you will remember that last year, me and the family moved into a smaller/cheaper place while Brookie was continuing her surgeries....

well.... we have been able to get MOST of her surgeries done (we have about 5 more to go)...

and .....

We put a bid on a house a few nights ago.....

and.....

last night our OFFER was accepted!!!!!!!!! We signed papers Monday night and now everything is on it's way to be finalized!!!!

We will be moving in the beginning of June!!!! (Which -- if you are familiar with Arizona at all... UGH! That is one of the WORST times to move, as it's about 105 during that month!! *phew*)

So EXCITED!!!!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

  41. What an incredible bright sunny layout!!!! Love it and Brookie is beautiful... I had no idea about Brookie having surgery's Julie!!! My son is having 2 surgery's coming fall, he has had 3 already... The surgery's are for his bowel and his feet... well we have something else in common as moms. I don't want to invade but only if it is not too personal could you tell me why Brookie is having surgeries?? God love her heart and your's too.. I have so much respect for you, you deserve the best of the best.
