And the Die Cut Giveaway Winner is...

Good job on your goals and what a great giveaway!!!!!

email me your address, Julie, at mmrhoda@sbcglobal.net and I will get your package out to you! :)

As for the weekend, it was fun.
Date night = a movie and pizza afterwards.
We saw American Sniper which Mike has really, really been wanting to see.
I found it to be interesting if a little hard to watch at times.

Saturday was a little busy with dance for Erin and a birthday party for one of her school friends right after. I wish I could post photos but they all include the other children and I don't like to do that without permission.
Then on Saturday night we had a small but nice birthday party for Mike's mom.
No photos there either that I can post but I did get a few cute ones of Erin with her cousin and Mike's mom with his sister.

On Sunday we had mass and then Evan and Mike ran a few errands together while Erin and I hung out and scrapbooked together. :)

We spread out on the floor of her room though because my workspace still kind of looks like this...

I was able to unpack most of my things from the weekend crop I went to, but I found another bag. So Erin worked on her "family memory" album as she calls it, and I sorted and organized photos from our Washington DC trip summer of 2013. I am putting most of the photos in our summer pocket page album I think. I was going to do a separate travel album, but it seems almost redundant. 

So it was a good weekend. 

Now I know I no longer design for Paper Issues, but I still love visiting their site and participating in challenges when I can. They started a new "issue" yesterday called "The Perfect Pairing" and I thought I would link up a layout.
This is an older page and one I am quite positive I never shared on my blog. Look at how little they were six years ago. I am hoping to create a new page for this issue if I can.

And I am pretty much on a major spending freeze, but I just had to order the new Paper Issues Swag Bag

How cute is that?! Perfect for this time of year.
So that is all I am sharing for today, but I know it was plenty.
Thanks for stopping by!
