Exciting times!

I have not posted in too long! So many exciting things are happening right now and I can't keep up!

The main thing that has kept me away is looking for a house...we are buying our first house! I am excited to share that we put an offer on a house we love and it was accepted, we are currently under contract and (fingers crossed) we will close on June 18! YAY!

Scrapbook news is also exciting, I was featured as a guest designer this month! Stick it Down is so wonderful for hosting me, thank you so much! Here was the awesome sketch:
Here is my finished layout:

I am honored to have been chosen as a winner and to be a guest designer!
I also completed another layout for Sketches In Thyme using two of their sketches
to make a double layout.

This was such a fun day! I enjoyed remembering this train ride as I made these pages. B was so excited to see Thomas and meet Sir Topham Hat! He got his own engineer hat and a Thomas toothbrush at the gift shop :) C was too little to enjoy it, but she did enjoy all of the new sights and sounds!

The first page is based on sketch #150
The second page is based on sketch #148
 I added our tickets to the page!

I love using buttons as accents and embellishments!

This post is full of enough excitement, I will share more exciting news next time!
Thanks for checking out my blog, hope y'all have a scrap'n good time!
