What a week! It was full of busyness and lots of work!! I ended up working 52 hours this week, whew!!! I am exhausted! I knew it was going to be a crazy week, and I was all geared up for working and sleeping this weekend. We stayed up pretty late on Friday night and I didn't worry about it because I knew I didn't have to be to work until 10. I usually get up before 5 so sleeping in till 8 or 9 sounded heavenly. Wouldn't you know, about 5:30 am the dogs started barking. I was a little cranky because they bark at the slightest noise. Well, my hubby got up to investigate and the dogs went ballistic. He was going to open up the front door to prove to them there was no one there, and much to his surprise the screen door was open! After adjusting his vision, who did he see on our porch???? Our sweet, wonderful, amazing daughters!!!!! What a surprise!!! We were totally blown away! We had absolutely no idea they had planned this. I got up and I was so surprised I started crying buckets!!! I just couldn't believe they were here!!! We are so blessed!!! Needless to say, I still had to work, but everything else became secondary. I had a fantastic weekend with my girls!!! I am sooooo happy!!! I even did a layout based on the surprise for my DT work for Little Red Scrapbook!! What an awesome weekend!! Here is the picture they took in our driveway just before they came in to surprise us! Aren't they beautiful?!!!
Speaking of Little Red Scrapbook, I have some sneak peeks from my designs for this month.

This month's kit was a lot of fun to work with!!!! Lots of pretty patterns, florals, and ribbons!!!

Thank you to all who particiapted in Color Me Daisy's Blog Hop! I will be checking out everyone's blog as soon as I can. My kids will not be leaving until Tuesday and I just can't spend too much time online while they are here!! It has been a lot of fun to see everyone's transparency projects!!!

I hope you have time this week to check out Scrapping the Music's Challenge Blog!!! This week's song is Video by India Aria! There are a lot of amazing lyrics in that song!!! Here is my take on week #61:

The lyrics I took from the song are:

When I look in the mirror the only one there is me Every freckle on my face is where its supposed to be And I know our creator didn't make no mistakes on me

I switched the words around in the first line to make my title and wrote the next two lines by hand. I used papers and supplies from my Looking Glass kit by Studio Calico. Mostly Basic Grey Offbeat goodies.

I am off to make some cinnamon pull aparts for my kiddos and then get ready for work. I hope you all have a great day!
