I was reminded today that I haven't posted much !! I really do try ... juggling a fulltime job, family, friends and, of course, scrapping can be a challenge - as we all know - and blogging sometimes takes a backseat !! I feel like I need a recently completed layout or some awesome pics before I blog, but I can also blog the every day - like scrapping !! So, I am going to make a HUGE effort to blog more, even if I don't have anything earth-shattering to share !!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRAM !!!
This is pretty incredible though ...
My Gram will be turning 97 on Monday, so we went to dinner today and my Mom made her a lovely cake.
97 is amazing to me and I hope I follow in her footsteps !! Here is the gorgeous cake and my lovely, always stylish Gram:
Before Gram's celebration, my Mom and I went to Home Depot. We picked out paint for my bathroom and thanks to a sweet lady in the paint department we got a gallon of high end $35.00/gallon gorgeous paint (that was returned by an unhappy customer because it wasn't mixed well) for $5.00 !! We looked at grout - didn't realize how many grout colors there are ... and looked at lighting. No choices were made on those items - still looking. We did pick out some gorgeous flowers. We did a few more planters for my deck and I'll take some pics of them tomorrow in better light than I had tonight !! I also bought a really cool mirror for the new bathroom at Home Goods - LOVE it there !!
I finished and submitted a layout for a Guest Designer Contest - my second attempt - I'll know around June 15th !! A new sketch will be released for Inspired Blueprints June 1st and I LOVE the page I did for this sketch - so stay tuned !! Well, it was a great day and I'm so glad I was able to celebrate my Gram's special day !! Have a great rest of the weekend !!!
