Can't believe it is Fri. already!!! This week went by way to fast!
But Fri. is the day to have the random drawing for some blog candy from the comments left on my blog, Yeaaaa! And the lucky winner is Carol Curran!!! Congratulations! Email me with your address and I will try get this out to you before I leave for CHA. It is so fun to give away some blog candy!!! THANK YOU to all of you for your nice comments!

The flower on the front cover of the album is tricky to make. I will try do a tutorial on them when I get back from CHA and post it here on my blog.
I had just decided to go to CHA the other night so have a lot to do! Haircut, manicure, pedicure, shopping etc. etc. Wonder if I can take off 20pds by Mon.? I think not!!! I will be hitting the mall this morning as soon as it opens!! They are going to love me today! Don't know why I feel like I need new things to go but that's the way it is! lol I'm so excited to go and can't wait to do Tim Holtz make & take and watch Wendy Vecchi's demoing they are amazing!
I wanted to do Tim's class but it is on Mon. before I get there, DARN! I did sign up to do a class with Suze Weinberg called the Queen Bee, so that should be fun! Off to the mall! Thanks again everyone!

Have a good one!
