Did you notice how the fall page below mysteriously disappeared? I guess they liked it after all! In one day I managed to sneak two more layouts into the October issuse. Those two layouts are really exciting for me simply because they are my first (non-Hall of Fame) layouts that will be published. I can't wait to see them!

I had no idea that Creating Keepsakes was going to have a page with the HOF pictures in the July issue. Stacey called me and asked if I knew about it...nope, no idea. It was weird seeing my face in there...a great kind of weird. I can only imagine what it is like to see your layout on one of those pages.

June crept up on me. Drew's 2nd birthday is only 10 days away! I can't believe he's already 2. Those years just flew by! I can't wait for his birthday party. I'm such a geek when it comes to stuff like that. We are doing a Curious George theme (this kid is such a Curious George fanatic) and I've got some awesome ideas for the cake! For some reason it is really important to me that I make his birthday cakes. I guess it is because Mom always made ours and I remember each and every one of them. It was just nice that she made that effort. She is so good at the little things like that and she was fabulous at the cake decorating. If only I could get her to teach me a little! His 1st birthday was my first attempt at the cake decorating.

Not too bad, for my first one!

The card kits are done...as of 4:30 a.m. I always think I'm ahead of the game and then somehow I end up rushing at the last minute. I'm so tired right now. TGIF!!

I hope everyone has a great weekend!

It's a good thing they liked that layout! I was begining to loose faith in CK over that one. That was seriously good work. I love the cake. I made the boys cakes when they were little. I always let them pick the cake and frosting. To this day Taylor's (the 15 year old) favorite was the white cake with the strawberry-kiwi frosting. I figure at 15 if I did anything he likes then it's a good deal! Can't wait to see the Curious George cake.
