Happy Mail! Happy Mail!

Ahhhhh, don't you just love getting happy mail! Yesterday was such a good good day for me. First my Stampin Up order came in. It was waiting on me when I went home for lunch. Then I was surprised to see that my order from Scrapbook.com had come in yesterday as well. I wasn't expecting it yet and there it was waiting on me at 5pm. I had looked online about 3 yesterday to track where it was and saw that it said at my house. Talk about 2 hours dragging! That was the longest two hours of my life! I took a picture of all my goodies...just to share.... and maybe to enable or make you jealous!! I didn't really play with anything last night, only put things away. I'm still trying to find a home for things that I brought back from the expo. Not things I bought but stuff from the classes... have no clue what to do with some of it.
Thinking I will get to play some tonight. David will be recording so I'll play while he is gone. Then it's only two days until the weekend. I'm planning a scraptabulous weekend for myself. Well, we'll need to work on our kitchen some more...but I should still have plenty of scrapping time in there!

Anyway....LOOK!


I scored good huh? It was my hostess month with Stampin Up so I had extra goodies. I think I got like 6 stamp sets, plus ink, plus paper, plus a butterfly punch!
Then my other goodies... I can not wait to play with them! I ordered some of the Prima Say it in Pearls Flower Centers. I've never used them and excited to try them out. I'm thinking they will work great on the layouts I'm doing for my mom's album.
Of course no order would be complete without a little Jenni Bowlin and a little Tim Holtz. I'm going to give his Distress Crackle paint a try. Anyone have any tips?? I also ordered a couple of his masks to use with my new favorite medium of the month... Glimmer Mist. Think there are a couple of packs of chipboard in there.. plus two pages of Scenic Route Die Cuts. I'm really drawn to arrows right now and have been in search of a die or punch or something of the arrow with the curve. Do you know what I'm talking about?
So, lots of goodies for me huh? I really need to stay out of the album area at scrapbook.com.... not good for me!

This picture is of a sunflower field that David and I passed on our way to New Mexico. The fields were in Texas...but on both sides of the highway for as far as you could see....nothing but sunflowers. I just had to have a picture, specially since David and I are expert farmers on Facebook. hehehe But isn't that cool? I just wish the sunflowers were 'awake'.



Wishing everyone a great day. Thanks for stopping by. Will be posting pics of the hot air balloons soon so be sure to check back!
