I did one more layout, but you are just going to have to wait until Tuesday to see it (unless you go browse the Scrapbook Circle photo gallery). The first layout here, "my BEST year" was also done for the WWW challenge over at Willow Traders (Weekly Wednesday Willow challenge). Come by every Wednesday for a new challenge posted by a different "willow"!

Tessa is 5! She has been so excited about her birthday. To be 5 like most of her friends... to have her first "kid party"... to have Grandma here for her birthday... so many reasons... and wow, did we celebrate! Ever read the Berenstain Bear book called "Too Much Birthday"? We almost got there. Thurday the 9th, actual day, was the "school party" (and I'm so sad that those pictures disappeared into a black hole). Friday was an "off day" since Dad got stuck in Maryland. Saturday was the "Creatures & Critters" kid party with 13 5-year-old friends, lots of crafts, games and face-painting. Sunday was the "family party" with Grandma, Uncle Ken, take-out Chinese, cake & presents. Happy Birthday, sweet Tessa!

Although this layout is true, this week I have a lot of housecleaning to do since that darn "Housekeeping Fairy" has yet to make an appearance. With Grandma coming to visit and Tessa's "Creatures & Critters" 5th birthday party on Saturday, well, let's just say it's time to focus on the house. I have loved creating with Scrapbook Circle's "Share the News" Oct. kit! If you have a minute, check out the Idea Gallery - fun stuff! And join us Oct. 24-26 for an online crop in the Community!
And I'm so excited to have won a stamp set from Unity this weekend, over at the fabulously talented Heidi Sonboul's blog. I'm still working on my WCMD cards, but hope to get some finished today! Happy Monday!

Today Stacy Julian posted a GREAT challenge on her blog: Give Yourself a Present. Go read about it. I think it's a super idea. I'm already snapping pictures this morning (ahem, have a feeling I may take more than 10... but I promise to weed out the best 10 that most capture my day or our lives NOW... 10-01-2008). Will be fun to see the changes in a year.
Here's a layout that very much captures who I am today and this year. I used the fabulous Scrapbook Circle Oct. kit (and you can check out more designs in the gallery today and in about a week even more):
