Diamonds are a girls best friend...

Oh yeah.

Now if you don't know me personally and you are not familer with my life goals, this will not be that big of a deal to you. But to me...to ME this is big...this is HUGE! After five years contracting at one of the biggest chemical companies in the world, I have been offered a perminent position with the company. To put this in perspective, this is like a computer geek being offered a job at Microsoft. This is like a model getting an offer from the Ford Model agency. Like a designer getting a gig at GUCCI. You get it...right? So yeah, granted it's not my "dream" job, but it is a foot in the door to a big global company that will put me on the fast track to success. Sounds cheesy I know, but it's true. I mean at 29 years old, this is the time in my life when I need to get serious about a career...not just a J-O-B. Sooooooo as you can imagine, I'm uber excited about this opportunity and can't wait to see what the future holds. I thought once I achieved this goal that I would not have anything left to strive for in my "day job" goals but as soon as I found out that I had gotten the job my mind began to race about the future and what my next goal and my next career move will be. Ok, I'm done. I'm off to pinch myself now.

More B'Ham Pics!

Ok, so here are some more pics from the Birmingham Event. I have to confess that some were jacked from fellow bloggers.

This was the Victoria's Secret display at the rave. So fun!


Scraplight display at the Hambly Booth


Zane joined the fun at the Rave and posed for a pic.


Wes, the creater of the Scrapped movie was so fun to talk to. Here he is with his scrap bag. How cool is that?! Loved this guy!


This is a beautiful shot of the hotel entrance (compliments of Wes).

Ok, as I get more I will post. Soon I will share pics of our projects we did. So much inspiration!

New ZingBoom!

Ok, so I'm a little late on this one, but I just got my new ZingBoom kit the day we were leaving for Alabama so I didn't get to play with it till Monday night and again last night. Here is what I came up with. I totally adore the Vintage page. Love that picture of us at the Easter Tea a few years ago. Oh and what is up with me saying "Totally" so much? Must have picked that word up this weekend too. I'm still getting pics so I will post more as I get them.

"Wicked" & "Seriously." to my vocabulary catch words (Thanks Kristi & Stacey), had sushi, had habatci, laughed, cried, scrapped, got a cool Hambly t-shirt and an even cooler glass pendant THE Hambly designer herself, not only did I get to see a special feature of "Scrapped" at the theater but I got to hang out with the creater himself (hi Wess!), had dinner with the Hambly girls, hung out with Kie-Mai from Fontwerks, meet Jenni Bowlin, Stacey Juillian, Allison Tyler Jones, Heather Prickle from A2Z, Kelli Crowe.

So to sum in up...

Kelli Crowe is a hoot

Only A week away!


Oh yeah! The Scrap Etc. event is only a week away and I am dying with excitement. I went back and pulled out my little mini book I did from last year and admired it and pondered what I should do for this year's event. Above is a slide show of the book (Before I added the pictures when I got home). Now I have to decide if I should add on to this yummy little book or make a whole new one. AND I only have a week to make it, print my pictures for the classes, gather my supplies, pack, finish my goodie bags, complete my online Glympes class by Stacey Juillian, and more stuff I'm sure I am forgetting! YIKES! I better get crack-a-lackin'! LOL!
