Happy Mail and Scrapping the Music

Happy Thursday evening dear friends!!! I hope you have had a wonderful week!!! My week has been exhausting and I have been nursing a cold, but it has been absolutely wonderful!!! I just love the first days of school!!! The new freshmen and the newness of it all just get me all excited and ready to tackle the days!!! We've had many new visitors to the high school library and many familiar faces as well. I just love it!! I am so looking forward to this year and I plan to "bloom where I am planted"!!! Things may not have worked out the way I had planned, but I am determined to make the most of where I am at right now!!! I hope you experience a freshness in your coming days and decide to "bloom where you are planted as well"!!! A change of perspective is like a breath of fresh air! I hope you remember that you are amazing and you are "where you are" for a reason and a purpose my friend!!! If we encourage one another in this race of life, we will make it through each and ever turn we face!!! I am thankful for each and every one of you who visit my blog!!! You are so very special!!!

Happy Mail!!!!!

I received the gorgeous Wonderfall Line and some very pretty Sparkler's to match!!! I am so excited!!! I haven't been able to buy any new paper for quite a while and this is such a treat!!! I just love Webster's Pages!!! Now, I have to decide what to make with these beautiful papers....decisions, decisions....

I also had another surprise blessing....I was a winner in the Papertrey Ink Blog Hop!!!! I am so excited....I just loved my project and it blesses my heart that so many others liked my work as well!!! You can see the announcement here on Nichole's Blog!!!!
