I'm back.....with Big News!

Hello, my friends,

I know it's been awhile since I've blogged.  What a whirlwind it's been.  Let me start by saying that July 2014 is a month that I will ALWAYS remember as one of the best times of my life.   I don't say that lightly.

First, I was incredibly honored to be asked to be a presenter on the Main Stage at Stampin' Up's National Convention 2014.  It was truly one of the BEST experiences of my life.  I can't begin to tell you how much fun I had living out my dream of sharing what I love with over 4,000 fellow demonstrators.  I feel SO blessed.  I loved every second of it.  (Side Note:  Unfortunately, the following day I ended up in the ER in Salt Lake City with a kidney stone.  NOT fun.)  I'm feeling tons better and was able to fly home as scheduled.  It was a bummer to miss a lot of the fun activities on Friday and Friday night.  I was able to attend closing session...even though it was through the haze of some really great medication.  LOL  I still wouldn't trade that Convention experience for anything.  God is SO good.  I was thrilled to get a call from Stampin' Up! letting me know that after the results of the survey after Convention ended were tallied, the Demonstrator Theatre that I was part of was the most popular event!  WAHOOOO!!!  How cool is THAT???

So....I got home from Utah and received the BEST NEWS EVER!!   Brittany and Sam are expecting their first baby!!!  YAY!!!!!  I'm gonna be a Grandma!!!  It's still early yet so stay tuned for lots more updates as the months go by. (this bit of good news is the inspiration for today's card I'm sharing...)

At the end of the week, we headed off for our family vacation at Walt Disney World.  It was an awesome trip.  It really was one of the most relaxing trips we've been on.  I'm looking forward to going back in November but I'm definitely NOT ready yet for the reason we'll be there....my FIRST Half Marathon!  Yikes!!  Gotta  keep movin'!

Okay....Here's one of the cards I created this week.  I hope you like it....
