I guess it's time...

Some of you may remember that I took the plunge and entered the Memory Makers Masters contest last year. Well, one of the layout submissions had to be an original. This was so hard for me. It was difficult knowing that I may not get something back that was near and dear to me. So, i've been holding onto this layout, hoping MM would have a call for something that would work for this, and that they'd accept my layout - long shot, huh, lol? They haven't really had any calls that this would work for (although I think I did send it in for something anyway, hehea), but no luck. Soooo, since it doesn't look like I am getting this layout back, I figured it would make me feel better to at least share it (almost a year later, lol!) :-) Maybe one of these days i'll recreate it!




In other news, this totally made my day yesterday.

Not much else to report. It's been a good week with the normal craziness factor. We got some outside play today, and i'm anxiously awaiting spring weather! Hope everyone else is having a great week, too!!
