Patterned paper

Practical Scrappers challenge this week was pattern paper... here are my layouts that I created for this challenge to use more than 2 types of pattern paper.
What a truly crazy week we have had!  The weather in PA has been up and down all week!  On Monday, I attended a workshop with Buffy and her Stampin up team!  We created the most fabulous purses you have ever seen... I can't wait to share a picture of them!  While sewing our purses, I decided to join the Stampin up family!  So as of last night, I am a Stampin Up Consultant.  You will see some changes on my blog as I will be adding my online store to the sidebar.  Feel free to email me if you have any questions or would like to book a workshop with me! I wish I could go visit all my blogging friends that I have... but currently will be staying in the PA/ NJ area.  I am placing my 1st order this weekend, so if you would like to take advantage of Sale-a-bration and earn lots of free stamps, send me an email and I can place an order for you!

More exciting news... tonight Brian's grandfather gave Jean a commitment ring.  We are so totally happy for them!  They had the family together for dinner... when we recieved the picture on the phone of them kissing, both Brian and I said to each other... Did they get married?  Next pic we received was a picture of the ring!!! They are just the cutest couple together... I have had the pleasure to watch them together over the past few months and you can just tell that they belong together!  Well, they are not married...but have made a commitment to one another to be with each other!
Tonight I am grateful for...
my new business
family
relationships that truly understand what love is...
the weekend and time with my kids
closing my first show
creating Valentine's this weekend
