Sunday update...

Good morning,

I have some really good news. I'm finally finished with my Master's Thesis. I will be graduating in May. I can't believe it. I've been talking and working on this project for over a year now. It's such a relief to be done. soooo, that means I will have more free time to do all the things I want to do.. no more feeling guilty about getting crafty or starting a project around the house. I'm very HAPPY!!! =)

So, to celebrate, I decided to go cropping on Friday.. I was able to play with my new kit from Studio Calico. I'm loving this kit club. I love the color combo in the April Joyland kit. Very fun. Here is my first SC layout. I used the sketch they have on their blog.

This layout was started the last time I cropped and I finished it off with the stitching.. again, another pic of my little cousin. Used some older Fancy Pants paper. This was for a sketch over at Sketchy Thursday.

And lastly, this is a layout of my SIL and my cousin. Used the new Pink Paislee 365 line. also used my Maya Mist for the first time. this is a scraplift from a layout in the new CK mag.

Another exciting thing that I just recently acquired is a Vintage Typewriter. I had been googling and researching and found a really nice one on Ebay. Can't wait to get it.. it will be perfect for my scrapbook nook. One of the projects I'll be working on this summer is finishing and setting up a new scrappy spot in my basement. I'll post progress pics as I get that started.

Today I'll be going to see my step son in a high school production of Grease. Should be fun.

I'll see you all again soon. Have a great day!!!
