The scare is over

For the past month I really felt like there was something not so good with me - shortness of breath and I didn't like the moles I have all over my body. I just returned from a skin cancer screening and I'm so relieved everything is OK. Being a healthy lifestyle nut I am it gave me a real scare.
So it's time to address the shortness of breath and either accept I'm not so young anymore or get back in the shape.
Treadmill for dinner.  Ok, before dinner.  :-)

Nina Unger is retiring

To spend more time with her ailing mother and her family, Nina of Nina Scraps is saying good bye (not forever, we hope) and retiring from designing.

It was my great pleasure to work with her amazing creations and I'll certainly miss her designs!

Her Oscraps store is on sale.




Blossom - new kit by Joyce Paul

There is never enough of spring theme around, right?  Latest kit by Joyce Paul at Mscraps:

Blossom


and my page with the kit which got GSO today!!! (which prompt me to catch up on my blogging). Thanks, Heather for noticing!
They are three pages with Mscraps products at today's Gallery Standouts, and that's been happening lately quite a lot  :-).





New products by Heather T.

(with I'd Love To)



Lots of layouts and news

Past two weeks were really hectic and I neglected my posting. For the month of March I was a guest CT at Mscraps and having an access to all the new released was like being in Disneyland!! I was scrapping like mad, just look at the long list of my pages below!!

A couple days ago Joyce Paul (owner of Mscraps) asked me to consider to be a permanent CT member!!! She really need not to ask! :-) Mscraps is my home and I will be most happy to be in the "closet" as the CT is called.

Welcome Spring!

Can you smell it in the air? Hear the buzz of all the winged creatures which are as happy as I am that the most beautiful season is here!
This is what I wrote as I was getting this post ready - yesterday. I doesn't look like it right now, it's rainy, and the bleak weather makes me so sleepy! I am posting this photo of this beautiful japanese cherry blossom from my garden to cheer me up:
