I'm being introduced on the Paper Issues blog today

Good Morning Everyone!

I'm being introduced today on the Paper Issues Blog. I share some of my deepest.darkest.secrets, intrigued yet??!?!

 Well, I'm sharing them here too. Don't laugh....just kidding, you can laugh!
  • I *love* coconut! Coconut Air-fresheners, coconut cupcakes, coconut milk, coconut macaroons, Almond Joy candy bars, coconut oil, coconut milkshakes....I could keep going.
  • I hate bananas. Even the smell grosses me out. Yick!
  • I have 3 children but you will often hear me say that I have 6 children. My sister lives close by and works full time, so I get to take care of her kids while she works so I claim them as my own.
  • Reading is one of my favorite past times. I usually have between 6 and 8 books on my nightstand at all times, although I rarely read more than one book at a time.
  • My husband and I have a mutual agreement. We do not play checkers together ever. We played once and it was a disaster. (he cheats every time!)
The project I have to share with you today is a project I created to document a comment my son made when he was getting ready for school the other day. Everyday projects are my most favorite. If you came to my house you would find albums filled with memories from my family's everyday life.

And the whole project:

(Inter) National Scrapbook Day with Shimelle

Yes, you read that right...Shimelle!
Welcome and Thank You 
for taking a moment to stop by.
(Please click the blue "follow this site" button on your right so you will be the first to know when there's an update here.)

I have a great project to share with you today but first here's a sneak peek of the project that I have on Shimelle's blog. To say I was excited to be featured on Shimelle's blog would be an understatement. I am jumping up and down thrilled to have designed a project specifically for her (Inter)National Scrapbook Day Celebration. Here's a sneak peek of my project that's featured on her blog today. Hop on over there for the full layout and tons inspiration and challenges.
Now, I do have a full project to share with you today. I created this layout a bit ago and I've just been saving it for a special day....and what could be more special than National Scrapbook Day where I'm a featured designer for Shimelle. This layout features my niece. She's a little lady that I get to spend most of my days with. She's the sweetest baby filled with smiles and she has the most beautiful blue eyes you've ever seen. Every time I take a photo of her I get asked how I Photoshopped her eyes to make them so blue. The answer is, I don't Photoshop her eyes, I never have. They are just that blue!

See what I mean...bright blue eyes! She's going to break some hearts someday!
And here's the whole project...
Thanks again, for stopping by! I hope to see you again soon!
