{My Best Friend}

Hello, my fellow blogger buddies! Hope your weekend was fantastic! Mine has been great & the really good news? I am taking Monday off...YIPPEE!!! & Friday too...double YIPPEE!!! I'm headed to the BIG city on Monday to do some spring shopping (& goofing around with the boys) and then Friday our family is volunteering @ the Special Olympics State Basketball tournament...really looking forward to that!

Just want to send a shout out to EAD Designs...thanks for sharing my "nerdy bird" card on your blog :o) & to Amy at Caffinated Cropper...she has a fun new kit she is selling (GO CHECK IT OUT!) and I won some EAD Designs vinyl rubons from her...thanks Amy :o)

I have a PageMaps inspired layout to share with you today...I am really tickled with how it turned out, but first the details! PageMaps Blog is hosting a Cricut Giveaway...YES, a Cricut Giveaway by A Cherry On Top!!! I have been wanting a digital cutter for a long time now, just haven't been willing to shell out the big bucks yet...maybe I won't have too :o) ha, ha!

Here's the sketch & the only other rule is that you have to use the theme of Appreciation...

My layout: My Best Friend

This photo of me & my DH is a favorite from last summer...& he really is my best friend! The journaling reads: I cherish those moments in time where it's just you & me...we are best friends!

I broke open the Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety scrapbooking kit that recently arrived at my door from & found some fun patterns that I'm lovin'!

Here's a few fun closeups:
