Thanks

Have I told you I have a serious blogging crush on Laura Bassen?  Well I do.  I love her style...and her videos always make me smile. She's crazy talented and she's real. So yes...she is my blogging crush.  Her use of color is amazing.   This week she's up for Make It Monday showing how to create ombre backgrounds.  My background is no where near as amazing as Laura's, but I'm pleased with the crisp/clean layout.

Happy Friday my friends.  I'm off on a crafty weekend with two of my sister-in-laws and girl friends.  The boys are in charge of Pat for the weekend...making sure he takes it easy!  I'll be checking in regularly to make sure he is okay. Pat was very clear that I should still go away.  "If it was my golf weekend, and you'd had meniscus surgery...I probably wouldn't even call."  Still feeling guilty!  Hope you have fun plans for the weekend too.
