Happy Girl...

"Laugh when I feel like it....Cry when I feel like it....That's just how my life is....That's how it goes... Oh watch me go I'm a happy girl...And I've come to know that the world won't change... Just 'cause I complain... Let the axis twirl....I'm a happy girl"

Some lyrics from one of my favorite songs by Martina McBride. Kinda the soundtrack to my life right now. I mentioned in my last post of having the case of the "blahs". But now I feel back and energized. Some things that might have played a part in that are...

The April issue of Cards Magazine....


My first publication is in there!
Still pinching myself that it says my name! :)

Another perk is I found the magazine on a little day trip that Ted and I took last Wednesday. He took off work and we drove to Indianapolis. It was so much fun and relaxing. We went antique shopping, had some lunch in our favorite small town and on the way back stopped at a scrapbook store and that's when I saw it. :) I know that Cards is sending me a copy but I couldn't wait! I had to buy it. LOL

One of my friends volunteered to do a fun photo shoot with me and the magazine. I'll be creating a layout soon with the pics to share here!

Let's see, what else? Oh, this movie came out on DVD this weekend.....I bought a copy and have been watching it a lot this weekend! Don't you just love lazy weekends? They are the best! And then I saw the trailer for Eclipse....

It comes out June 30th. I can't wait to see it!

I also had a little time in my craft room. I managed to make a card using happy spring colors...
I made the fabric flower by cutting it out from the pattern of the new Dear Lizzy fabric paper from American Crafts...

I bought several different sheets so you'll see them popping up on future projects here!

I have lots of more things planned but I thought I'd share some things that are making me happy right now. :)

Be back soon....
