Monday already???

I don't have any projects to share with you today, but I wanted to quickly post this before I fall into bed! What a busy busy weekend!! Yesterday my baby turned two! I can't believe it. We had his birthday party last weekend, so it was a pretty mellow day - we went to the beach in the morning as a family, then came home to watch the Sooners kick Mizzou's ass in the Big 12 Championship game!!! Wooo Hoooo!!!! :-)

Anyway, I really wanted to participate in this week's MoJo Monday challenge because I love the sketch AND it's a contest week. I'm so sorry for the late notice if you didn't know about it already, but there are still a few more hours left to participate and get your entries done for your chance to win some Verve bucks!!!!! Unfortunately for me, there just weren't enough hours this past week....

I have been extremely busy for what seems like FOREVER completely a digital photobook for my BFF Brandi and I FINALLY finished the last page tonight. I love how it turned out and I know it is something she will always treasure, but man! I am soooo glad to be done with that thing! I'll be sharing some of the pages with you over the next several weeks.

Oh! Remember that guest DT call that Whiff of Joy was having over at Papercraft Planet?? Well, if you're a regular reader of my blog you know that I NEVER post copic projects - because I absolutely suck at coloring, or so I thought...until I got the right paper!!! WOW!! What a difference paper makes! Remember when I mentioned that my friend Jodi sent me some images to color? Well, they were stamped on the most awesome paper EVER - I seriously thought I had thrown away hundreds of dollars on those darn copics until I got those images from Jodi!!! I'm just waiting on some more info from her, then I'll share the source with you. I do know that it is locally made here in the islands (gotta love supporting my local Hawaiian businesses!). So be watching for more details.

OK, on to my exciting news....Apparently I DON'T suck at coloring!!! My card was one of 3 selected in the Whiff of Joy challenge and I'll be fulfilling a 2-month guest stint on their Design Team!! I am just thrilled (and a little intimidated as my coloring experience is SERIOUSLY lacking - but what better motivator to get in some practice!?!?). I'm anxiously awaiting my first set of WoJ stamps and then I'll start sharing some goodies with you.

OK, I really do need to get to bed. Back to work for me tomorrow - and I actually have to work a full week this week (which for me means 3 whole days) after 4 weeks of only working 1-2 days each's gonna be rough. Thanks for sticking with this loooooong creative-less post. Here's a couple more super cute pics of Dean from his birthday party last week...
