My Blog Grand Opening!



The plan was to have my store up and running but we had a family emergency. My dad had a pretty bad heart attack yesterday so I haven't been home to monitor my blog, and I apologize for that :) ... He is coming home tommarrow! So we are cleaning the house because he decided to quit smoking to! GOOD!

..... and what better way to celebrate than to have a challenge with some Blog Candy and a fun challenge???!

I don't know about you but I love color! I love to create "BRIGHT" Lay outs and cards, especially cards for kids birthdays! It's sooo fun!

Here's my Layout and the sketch!

I used all bright colors on this one ... I'm so tired of seeing black, grays and dark blues! The yucky weather! I can't wait until Spring and Summer! My two favorite seasons, so to celebrate I created this LO and this Challenge!

Hello Angela,
Cute blog.. Whoo Hoot 100 followers... you go girl.

I have become a follower.
My favorite thing about spring is watching all the flowers bloom and the trees getting fresh leaves and buds on them. And I love seeing ladybugs... :)
