Me feel so HUGGED!

Holy Macaroni! You know how sometimes, you've got a string of good luck and you don't know what's going on????? Well, that's what's going on these last few weeks!

First off. I won my first weekly challenge over at Vintage Plum for the layout entitiled "Hey Good Lookin' What You Got Cookin?" Yay! And if THAT wasn't cool enough, I ALSO got a $5.00 coupon! Wooohooo!

Next, I've discovered many new blogs during the recent blog hop hosted by Maggi called "Christmas In July"!

I also got TOP 5 in the SP Color Combos Challenge Blog. FOR THIS LO.

And, I won some lovely embellies from one of those blogs from the Christmas In July Blog Hop.
Yvonne at "Do More With Less" needed assistance in a layout title for one of her cute photos and I "helped"! I didn't actually come up with the whole title, just one word...but she was so sweet to count me! Check out her awesome layout HERE!

And! I won the MAJORLY YUMMY RAK that Maryangella (The Scrappyness In Me) so generously put up for grabs in celebration of her Blogoversary! Happy Blogoversary my dear friend! If you like these kits, they are from Paper Niche. I'm gonna have to GET SOME STUFF THERE!

UMMMMM...YEAH....I KNOW! And you're gonna hate me more cuz it also includes THIS:


I've been asked to create a Premade Baby's a mini one...nothing too overwhelming.
