Sweet 16

Sorry so late with this post, my internet dumped on me again tonight, blah. But to the rescue came my friend, Suz, and her super tech savvy computer geek hubby who helped me out! Thanks Dave and Suz! I would have literally gone bonkers had I not been able to get back online. Thankfully, we avoided that unpleasant episode lol.

Well today was the last day of the EDLC in Scrappin-n-Chattin. It's been tough at times, but I'm so happy I completed the goal of 30 layouts in 30 days! And I have so many awesome layouts to now add to my albums. Woot! Congrats to all of the gals in the EDLC this month. We rock!!
A winner has already been chosen. It wasn't me so I'm a bit bummed lol But I'm also super excited and happy for the winner. Congratulations Sandi!! I can't wait to see all the prizes you've won! :)

My last layout was a very quick one. I was really tired tonight and just wanted to finish it so I didn't do anything extravagant- just a simple layout of my sister on her sweet 16th. The challenge required using those cute retro smiley faces- and I was so happy to find this photo with her smiley face cake!

Layout Supplies: Basic Grey "Lime Rickey", Thickers, brads and cardstock

I want to send out a huge thank you to all of you who joined me this month in my first ever blog celebration!


I had alot of fun and I'm so happy that so many of you came back day after day to be a part of it all. Thank you so very much!

I'm probably gonna lay low for a while, that EDLC really wore me out lol. But I'll still be posting every week for the fabulous Party Time Tuesdays and also any challenges I participate in with all those great sketch sites out there in the blog world :) I'm pretty sure I'll be doing more giveaways here and there, cuz lets face it, those are so much fun! :)

Oh and a heads up, friends! Several of us gals from Scrappin-n-Chattin are planning a blog hop in August where you'll be able to win LOTS of scrappin goodies! So be sure to check back for deets about that! You won't want to miss it :)

Don't forget to send in the secret word before Friday for that awesome $25 gift certificate! And you can still enter to win this giveaway before Friday too! I'll announce the winners of both the Secret Word game and the giveaway on Friday morning!

Thanks again to all my readers this month. I had a blast, I hope you did too! :)

Happy Summer! :)
