Giveaway over at Craft Your Nest

Just wanted to share that the Craft Your Nest blog is having a ton of giveaways in the month of March. Starting with this kit by Scrapbooking From the Inside Out!
If you are interested in a chance to win, just pop over to the CYN blog *Here*!
The giveaway is going until Tuesday night at midnight central time :)

I was actually able to go to a scrapbook crop this past weekend. The plans were made back in the fall. But let me tell you, I almost cancelled after Mike had his accident. Since I was supposed to leave on Friday after lunch, I was going to miss him completely since he wasn't coming in town until later that afternoon. Thankfully, a good friend talked me out of not going because I had a lot of fun!
And the kids had a blast with him this weekend! It's good to have some time alone with dad once in awhile. And for me to get away!

Here is a little peek at one of my workspace and one of my layouts. I completed 18 layouts this weekend for our 2007 family trip to Florida! That is a lot for me at once. And those 18 pages are just the title page and first day :-O I think I need to streamline a bit. I was just having so much fun creating that I got carried away :)
Really had a good time with my friend Becky and some new friends as well.
"What's Up with That?!" was a familiar saying between all of us over the weekend. From that regular skit on Saturday Night Live. We were cracking ourselves up. And at 1am, which was the latest I was able to stay up, were definitely a little loopy.
I would definitely recommend a weekend crop with friends if you can find the time.
And I am planning on sharing more pages from the album over the next few weeks. I promise not to hit you with all of them in one post! :)

Hope you have a great day! And don't forget to check out that giveaway. It's a great kit by a great company! :)
