Okay this is going to be a really long post with lots of layouts and goodies :)

Hi there! I hope everyone is well and getting a glimpse of warmer weather. It has been beautiful here in Bend over the last couple of weeks. Steve and I have enjoyed quite a few days at the part soaking in the sunshine...aaahh.. Here are a few layouts from last week when we did a little picture taking at the park :) Always fun!

Previously, I posted that the layout I created using the lovely Liz Qualman's Spring sketch was selected as the cover layout for Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine's Spring issue. I was SO excited when Steve brought the issue up to my scrap room to show me. Although....I seriously think he was more proud and excited. Naaaah....I was jumping up and down. Being a scrapbooker, and like a lot of you....one that submits work to various publications, you can imagine what an awesome reward it was to be chosen for a cover. Okay, nuff about that here is the picture I took of the actual magazine :)

In other news.. (just had to say that as it makes me laugh when the news people say that..lol) I've been invited to be a part of the Bad Girls Kits design team. I love the girls that are on that team and feel SO at home there. The kit this month was so eclectic and inspiring. Here is what I did with it!

In closing here is a favorite layout of mine. I wanted to document our Sunday afternoon's. I usually feel like creating and watching movies and he *always* joins me (along with Mozart, our fur baby) to watch movies and sip on yummy coffee. I love that he *wants* to be there and encourages me along the way. He is always great about suggesting "what else" I should do with my work and kindly hints that maybe something I am doing is not working so well. He will get up and start opening the drawers to my supplies... looking for the perfect embellishment....saying, "What about this?" and "What if you did this..." I am really thankful that I have a sweet guy who is so receptive to my addiction...um, and someone who feeds it.ha!!!

Well.......that's it for now! Off to cook up a scrumptious dinner for my sweetie!
I hope you ALL have a wonderful week and find time to create!
