So, back at the beginning of the month I got an email from Pam, that I had won the July Sketch Contest over on her website at Kraft Girl Kits with my layout "National Champions". A few days later, I was super excited to receive a package in the containing all of these goodies! Thanks so much Pam! I can't wait to get a project started, there are so many fun things in here... I have something special up my sleeve, but it will have to wait for awhile ;o)

**Update: Pictures were a little blurry, so I finally got some new ones taken and have re-posted the pictures so the details are more clear!**
So, yeah, I just realized how long it has been since I blogged! I am surprised that there are not little virtual spiders crawling all over the cobwebs and dust bunnies that have collected since I was here last :o) And I have so much to share, there have been so many, many changes in my real life that my virtual life has been put on hold. My apologies, but I promise I am back and better! I will be back tomorrow with more details, and more projects, and photos. But, for now, I will leave you with a layout.
This is my little girl, and her VPK class this last spring. It is bittersweet for me, but very exciting for her, what this photo represents. You see, this photo was taken at the end of the school year back in May... which you have probably figured out means that she started Kindergarten this past week! Needless to say, I was a complete wreck on Monday! I am dealing with it, and trying to embrace it, but for now... She is extremely excited and loving school! And that is what matters, right?! I journaled on the tall tags about how much her personality/ changed and developed over those 5 months. The other tag has the names of all her classmates and teaches on it, since I am sure I will forget all too soon.
