Good things are HAPPENINNNG!!!!

First off let me start by saying I think I miscommunicated in my yesterdays post that I created ALLLL THOSE projects this past weekend. UGHHH no! I did the mini album in the previous post, the canvas, the flowerdy layout and a couple more projects but NOT ALLL THAT This weekend. Those are REMINISCE projects I have made and wanted them all together for the DT entry. Sorry if I mislead yall.

This past weekend my nephew Bradlee went with my brother Windale to a Bronco expedition. Its like this truck club where all these guys get together and see how much mud they can sling and how difficult a path they can ride down. YA fun huh?
Well this trail ride they did was also an anniversary of a young man that died last year named Micheal Stark.
They memorialized him by giving an award away to a young man that exemplified the kind of life that Micheal led with the values he lived by. BRADLEE WON THE AWARD. I am so proud of him!!
I worked on a mini album last night with photos from this weekend. I am awaiting permission from the Stark Family before I post the pages on my blog though. The first few pages are all about Michael with photos of him and also his family.

This is a REALLY BIG honor in the Bronco world. I am so very proud of Bradlee and yes my butt head brother too! (SMOOCH)

I have been scrapping alot lately. I also have some other exciting news. I WON THE PEN PALS CHALLENGE!! YES! I know I was totally floored. SOOOOOO, I get to do Challenge no 7! SO I have my thinking cap on and I wanna make it a good one!

I have been having EXTREMELY good luck lately. MAN I HOPE IT CONTINUES! I told John I needed to buy a lottery ticket.
I received my rak from The Design Experiment challenge that I won. I got some AMAZING WEBSTERS PAGES paper. OMGOSH I cant wait to play with it. Its on my list.

Yesterday I made this cute little card set. PERFECT for gift giving. I did not come up with this idea. I took this in a class here locally from a close to my heart rep. She did a great job with it and it was sooo easy and fun. I thought it would be fun to pass it along to you guys.

I used the October Kit from Scrapbook obsessions.

Take a 6x6 page protector and cut the part that you put into the album off just after the seam.

Cut a piece of double sided paper to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2.

Round one end, you can use a dinner plate or a bowl and trace around the edge of it then cut. Ink the edges

SCORE at 2 and 1/2 and at 3 inches from the rounded edge.

Add the decorative fiber to the edge of the patterned paper.

slide down inside the page protector. Place a velcro sticky on the rounded edge of cardstock and one on the matching side of the page protector to hold it closed.

THEN make 4 general occasion cards.
Here are the ones that I made:

SEEEE now wasn't that easy? Makes a great little gift idea also!
Well that is it for me today. I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday!
