WOW! So nice to see all of you here! I decided to up the winners to 5 instead of 2. Come check it out :)

*Sorry for the delay here are the winners*
It was amazing each day to see more and more of you pop in to say hi. I really enjoyed reading each and every comment. Big hugs to all of you!

I didn't expect so many comments, so I've decided it would be better to pick 5 winners instead of just 2. I randomly chose the comments below! If it was you that won a set of flowers, please email me at: tessaannwatte@gmail.com and I'll get your funky flowers out right away! I really look forward to seeing them on your layouts or projects. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did creating them for YOU!

Here YOU are!
Some new layouts and a card Steve made for me for my birthday last week!

I have been really enjoying spending some time at a new site called, Creative-Scrappers. I love that it's small and you can really get to know the other board members......not getting lost. I do love my 2 peas and scrapbook.com, but this is nice and homey and I love that!

Each week they post sketch challenges...really fun ones too! I gave one of them a go and here is what I came up with. As you know, I love circles so this was a perfect one to try out!

TITLE: "Good Dogs"- I captured this shot of my my parents adorable Golden Retrievers this past November. Steve and I volunteered to babysit them while my parents were in Vegas for their 25th wedding anniversary. We really had fun taking them to the park and learned that dogs are just not our style, though quite adorable and SO lovable, they are stinky and extremely high maintenance. But...again, I love them :)

TITLE: Summer Time- This layout was an assignment for Scrapbooking & Beyond Magazine's recent Summer 08 issue. This particular layout was based on Liz Qualman's sketch article. Again, using her gorgeous sketch I created this layout of Steve and I enjoying a day on the Oregon Coast.

TITLE: *Always*- I was asked by Basic Grey to create a layout for their June 2008 Newsletter using a sketch (you see a pattern here..lol) that is featured in the newsletter along with the Pheobe line of papers. I was so honored to be asked to create this layout. It was a fun 6x12 sketch and I thought a DAD layout would be perfect in lieu of Father's Day.
My sweetie handmade me a birthday card...awww.

I celebrated my 29th birthday (eek!) last Wednesday. I had a wonderful day. Steve planned a spa day for me at a local lovely spa where I had my hair cut into a really cute short*er* style. It's kind of like a layered bob that's a bit shorter in the back. I totally love it. I then got a manicure and pedicure all the while sipping on mimosas. It was so relaxing and refreshing. I loved every minute of it. When Steve picked me up after my day there, resting on my car seat was his very own handmade card. Aww...he's so sweet. He broke out my supplies and made this sweet card just for me. And.........he even cleaned up..lol. I just had to share!

Well, I want to wish everyone a WONDERFUL weekend ahead. I plan on doing more giveaways in the near future so stay tuned!!
