Good morning!

We had some great chatter yesterday on our Facebook page about the freezing weather in the US.  Are you a fan there?  Remember I mentioned that there might be RAK’s both on FB and/or Twitter.  So make sure you are checking in with us!  You don’t want to miss out on the good deals!

Now here’s your next piece to this amazing kit from Pretty in Green! I do hope you are enjoying it!

Challenge Spotlight – Bakery Window

Ack did I really miss a week? Now I’m sad, that’s the first time I’ve missed since I started the challenge spotlight. Are you wondering why? probably not, but I’ll tell you anyway. 🙂 I was super busy redoing an entire database for my Dad’s Home Property Management business. His old program hit it’s date limit at the beginning of the year and so we were scrambling to hurry and get a new one. It was nuts! Anyway I’m back with more challenge goodness, but first!!! I have a prize to give!

The winner from last week is. . . . . mom2triplets04! Here’s her Week 1 LO! Here’s what she won!

Okay! So onto this weeks Challenge Spotlight! The Bakery Window! The Bakery Window is our inspiration challenge. For Jan. Photocowgirl hosted our Bakery Window.  She would like to inspire your journaling. Here’s what she has to say:

Photocowgirl is here to bring you the January 15 Inspiration challenge. I love to use song lyrics on my layouts, so this month we are going to scrap a page using at least one line from a song.

Here’s the summary:
1. Pick at least one line from a song to use for your inspiration.
2. Scrap a page using your lyrics.
3. Upload to the inspiration challenge gallery – make sure to add your song choice and artist to the credits

Sounds like a great way to find just the right thing to say. Need MORE inspiration? Here’s some LOs from our Gingersnaps.

It is finally Friday!  This week was long and expensive.  Between holidays, snow days, and broken cars, I’ve just had enough of this week.  I can tell you that something good has happened.  I’ve done a lot of talking with Ginger, and our amazing designers and we have decided we needed to do more for you, our friends.  I bet you are wondering “More?  How can you possibly do more for us?!?”
