Well, it's Scrap N' Art eZine, an online scrapbooking mag! And guess what?! I've got TWO layouts published in their July/August issue!!! How cool is that?! I actually had 3 Los picked but they only ended up using two. To check them out, go download your FREE copy of SNA HERE. You'll have to register to download it but believe me, it is painless. Plus they have a forum and other fun stuff to check out once you're registered. Thanks for looking!!

I've also been doing some updates to my blog. I revised the blog list on the left using the new tool Blogger has. Now it lists all the blogs I read in the order they've been updated. I added a few new ones to the mix as well. I've been toying with the idea of changing my blog header and possibly the name. The whole “wish” thing just happened because that was on the layout which I scanned and used for the header because I liked it. The new name I have in my head started as a joke among friends about possible names if we were to start our own LSS but it has grown on me…now to find a banner and a mascot…still working on it in my head.

I've also been working on some fun projects, just playing around with my Bind-It-All and experimenting. I'll post the tutorial for a fun little project I came up with–a book made from birthday party hats…

I guess I have birthdays on my mind since today is my mom's birthday AND my friend Trisha's birthday! WOW! Katie is spending the day with my mom, baking a cake and doing other fun grandma stuff. Then tonight we're heading out to have some BBQ and spend some time with my mom. I got her TWO windchimes for her birthday. The wind blows them apart up here in a mater of months but she still likes them. So I got her two so when ones disintegrates she can replace it again! I can't tell you what I got Trisha cuz she reads my blog. ;)

I've also been doing alot with acrylic paint. It seems everyone is using it alot more and in browsing galleries I guess I just mentally picked it up. I did a fun simple layout on Thursday but its now at the Scrappin' Table on display. I need a portable scanner or something!! I'm always forgetting to take pics of things I make.

Here's some fun pics of Matt getting into trouble, literally:


Just making himself comfortable…

That drawer is now his and is completely empty. Go figure. Kids! LOL Matt is now napping so I'd better take advantage of this quiet and go scrap! Have a great Monday, as good as you can…
