Ain't no foolin'!

Good mid morning friends!!
Happy April 1st also known as April Fools Day!

Are you a prankster? Do you know a prankster who fooled got you today?
Fortunately, my kids like trying to prank me, but not in great big ways yet... phew!

I did oversleep by a couple of hours this morning, and in just a few minutes have to rush off to a doctors appointment with my youngest. Before I left, I wanted to share some NEWS.. I have sensationally good and sad news to share today.

The sensationally great news is..
I am on the Some Odd Girl DT for my third term!! YAYZ!!
Which means I have a sketch to share with you.. :)
Isn't it awesome?
Here is my take on it.

I used Smell the Flowers Tia and mostly stuck with the sketch.
The reveal of some of the team is up today.. go check out the new oddies!

My other fabulous good news... working with Creating Made Easy April kit.. my
Easter Album is being featured this month! Which means with every kit will come with instructions on how to create your very own Easter album.. step by step just like mine.

Here's a look at the packed April kit from Creating Made Easy kit club.

 This kit is packed to the gills and I had a blast working with it... as will you! 

now.. on to some sad news I have been holding on to...

Yesterday marked my last day as a Tinker at Tiddly Inks.  With spring and summer coming up, my time was being divided just a bit too much, so I opted to step down. I will miss working with those ladies so very much, but it's been one heck of a ride.... and this month would have marked being with Christy at Tiddly Inks one year... I consider myself very blessed to have worked with such an amazing team and designer!

and the reason for my silence on the blog over the last several days is because we lost another of our furry family members friday night, Hamburger.

Hamburger was my daughter Katelyn's sweet boy. He was 11 years old. We don't know what happened to him, but this loss is hitting me hard. Not only do I grieve the loss of having this gorgeous man around, I grieve the loss Katelyn is feeling so heavily... sometimes I wish I could take the pain for her.. needless to say, it has made celebrating Doug and I's 11th wedding anniversary and Easter that much harder this year. Sigh.

I don't mean to be a downer.. but I had a lot of news to share... and you guys know I share a lot of my family life here too.... tomorrow I will be sharing more about Hamburger.. lots of gorgeous pics of him.  

Thanks to my blog friends who take the time to stop by and leave me love, it's all very much appreciated, and as time allows, I want to get better at doing that myself.
With love,
