Doing a little happy dance!

Today's post is definitely going to be, now that you have been warned...let the fun begin!

Why are we doing a little happy dance @ our house? Well, a certain young man, age 14, successfully passed his written driving test on the 1st try...AND...passed the driving test as he officially has a farm permit tucked away in his wallet!!! I tell ya, I was NERVOUS for him & he told me tonight he thought he was going to throw up...hate that! Anyway, he texted me a photo and his smile was bigger than DALLAS! Just made my day! I had to take a few photos when I got home too...I was going to post the photo with license too...but then decided maybe I should crop that out...a 14 yr old doesn't need his identity stolen :0)

Rec'd a fun little surprise in my inbox tonight...a super sweet blogger buddy (you know who you are) is sending me some ribbon...out of the kindness of her heart! Another reason for a happy dance! THANX a BUNCH!!!

I recently threw my "hat" into a sketch design team call. I didn't get chosen. It's hard not to get your hopes up. I'm kinda bummed. But it's not the end of the world. I'm so lucky to get to scrap at all, so life's not too bad. Besides, here's the layout I created & I think it's pretty darn cute (that's all that matters anyway!) Some of you that follow my blog will wonder who the heck this cute little girl is because, well, I don't have any cute little girls in my house! It's my niece's daughter...isn't she just adorable???

"just the cutest little...water baby"

a close up of the title & journaling...gotta love AC Thickers!

and here's the fun circles that I cut from Cosmo Cricket Snorkel-Umbrellas. I sanded the edges and ran a fun zig zag stitch thru them...

Supplies: Green cardstock-unknown, Cosmo Cricket Snorkel-Boardwalk, Umbrellas & School's Out, Fancy Pants Delight rubons, AC Thickers Daiquiri foam letter stickers, Daisy D's cardstock stickers-Arrows, K & Company Wild Saffron-Tag pad (journaling strips), Stampin' Up Black ink, Martha Stewart journaling pen, Fiskars border punch, Favorite Findings buttons & embroidery thread. (The pp & rubons were from May & June Scrapbook Circle kits!)

and last but not least, this is on my wish list...I really NEED one for my backyard...I keep thinking they will go on clearance...

That's it! Told you it was random! Take care!
