{i hope you know how AWESOME you are...}

If you are here from the Paper Variety blog hop, please hop on over to here. :)

Our son (and baby) made the President's List last semester!! We were so totally happy for him - he worked really hard to get all A's and one A-. He posed with his letter from the college president for me, so that I could scrap it. {Made me such a happy mama!} :) :)

I used this sketch from Julie Bonner at Blue Moon Scrapbooking.

My friend, Melonie Madison, a Citrus Tree Studios DT member, had a challenge for February to stamp a background. I used some older Autumn Leaves stamps on kraft cs w/potter's clay ink by Memento. Then I cut out the circle, distressed the edges and machine stitched. Thanks for the fun challenge, Mel!! :) :)

It's snowing here today!! I'm off to bake some cupcakes.

Hope you all have a nice Sunday! Thanks so much for coming by my blog. :)

hugs, patti
