We are so proud!

For those of you that don't know my daughter has decided to join the Army after she graduates in June. Today she is signing her contract and swaring in. I know that some people in my life don't necessarily agree with this decision. This is going to be the best thing for her. She is young and adventures and this will help her see there is life outside of her small town. Her father and I couldn't not be more prouder of her and we support her 100%. It is sad to see your children grow up. Just another chapter in our life that we are beginning. I look forward to sharing her adult life with her and supporting her in her decisions. Alyssa my love all the best to you. And no matter what people do or what people say just know that nothing is more important then what you want to achieve in life and that you have to love and support of your family to back you up. This is the most important lesson you will learn. We Love You!
Now I can officially say. Yes, I am a PROUD Army mom!

My Winning Layout

Here the the picture of the layout I did at the Scrapbook Expo Crop and won 2nd place. I got a great prize pack with Rusty Pickle paper, chipboard, and some alpha stickers. I started with an 11X17 piece of acrylic. I added some basic grey and holy cow rub ons. I also added a chipboard flower and It is a really simple layout and I just love how it turned out. I can't wait to work more with acrylic. I think my next project is going to be a mini album. Now I just have to find a subject!

Scrapbook Expo!

We had a blast at the scrapbook expo yesterday. I bought sooo much paper it is insane. We took a class called 25 ways to use chipboard and it was fun! It was a great day just hanging out with the girls. Another neat thing happened. I entered a layout for the layout contest and won 2nd place. I was so excited!
