It's MDS Day which means new downloads will be released and I can't wait to see them. Have you heard the news? That MDS2 has changed back to MDS and now you can get the software for $24.95. You still get all the great digital content but now for a lower price! An amazing new price!!

I was inspired by my sweet friend Kimberly to finally take some pictures of me and actually do a layout with me it in! I find that I'm always the one taking the pictures and I want my family to learn more about me and who I am!!

One of my new found love is Frozen Yogurt. There is this new store in London that serves frozen yogurt that you can top with over 40 different toppings, like yummy fresh fruit and oh my favourite Chocolate!! So girls and I went for a little visit over March Break and all I can say is "YUMMY"

Scrapbook Wonderland

(Scrapbook Wonderland)
Author: Erin Kilmer

Shakers rattle, are you listenin'?
In the aisle, beads are glistenin'!
A beautiful sight, we're happy tonight!
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!
Gone away is my money
Here to stay's my croppin' buddy!
We're singing a song
As we shop along
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!
In the workroom we can build a layout
Using diecuts, Punches, fibers too!
We'll have lots of fun making our layout
And they have just the right shade of Stampin’ blue!
Later on, we'll conspire As we crop by the fire
To bring all our pics and our hermafix
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland
In the workroom we can build a layout
With our eyelets, stickers, tags and Brads.
We'll have lots of fun making a layout!
All those Patterned Papers make me glad!
When we crop, ain't it thrillin',
Though the shop's makin' a killin'?
We'll frolic and play the Scrapbooking way
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland.
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland.
Walking in a scrapbook wonderland!


Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!
