Well, yesterday all her classes sold out in under 2 minutes!!! 2 MINUTES!!!! But guess what? This time I got in!!!!! Woohoo!! I am SO EXCITED!!! I feel like I won the lottery!!! Classes will start in a few months!! Wow!! I can hardly wait!! I'm all giddy inside.....I'm so excited!!

New York Baby!!

My daughter is home safe and sound from her trip to New York. A dream of her's was to attend a ball game at Yankee Stadium. Living on the West coast makes this quite a journey. She work's full time, plus is a full time student, and she has been scrimping & saving for this trip for a very long time. I'm so proud of her! They really enjoyed the game at Yankee Stadium, toured Central Park, and Time Square. Then they were off to Kansas City to visit friends and another Baseball game! She had a blast!!!

Pink Paislee in the House

This month Pink Paislee is hangin' at My Creative Scrapbook!! If you want a great kit at a great value, hurry on over, because they are going fast!! Also included are some great Jenni Bowlin papers, Maya Road mask and an adorable chipboard house by Inque Boutique.

On my "Beloved" layout I used the MR mask and sprayed it with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist (not included). The mask is a vinyl material which easily wipes clean, and has a variety of uses. Check out the DT gallery at My Creative Scrapbook to view additional & creative ways to use this product. And while you're there, stop in and say Hi!!

The Last Lecture

Today I read "The Last Lecture" by Randy Pausche for the third time. This book is particularly meaningful to me since we lost a family member to pancreatic cancer. After taking time away from our jobs & lives to provide continuous care for our dying loved one, it proved to be one of the most valuable gifts life has ever offered us.

'The Last Lecture' will surely touch your heart.
I admire Randy Pausche for his strength & inspiration and for sharing the final stages of his life. He gave this powerful speech in May to the Graduating Class of 2008 at Carnegie Mellon. It is very inspirational and worth a listen.

"You can't change the cards you've been dealt, but you can control how you play them........"
