BREAK OUT THE BUBBLY! (plus a little challenge/RAK)

I'll start with a little LO that I cooked up last night. I have been working through the We Dare You book. I didn't start at the beginning, I just picked the first dare that appealed to me: Scrap Your Fear. So, here's a peek into my biggest fear:



Now, on to the celebration...

First of all, yesterday was my mom and step-dad's 24th wedding anniversary. So, here's my little photo tribute to them from when they were on their way out last night:



Second of all, Bryan passed his flight aptitude test with flying colors! I'm so excited for him, and for us. This will open up so many opportunities for us, and it means a signifcantly bigger paycheck too! I am married to a soon-to-be helicopter pilot. That's a little difficult for me to grasp, but it is such a huge success for Bryan! So, now he just has to complete the rest of his physical and subit his registration packet. And, then we will just wait for him to get picked up for the next available class session. This also means that we will be moving to Alabama for the next year and a half. So, if any of you ladies are living in that neck of the woods, hit me up and let me know what craftiness there is to be had in those parts. :0)

Here's where you guys come in. Since I've got all this celebrating to do, and I'm in such a freakin' great mood...I thought I'd let you all in on the action. Here's the challenge: make a LO about something major that you celebrated or want to celebrate. It could be the birth of your child, a new job, a promotion, finally being able to buy something that you had saved up for forever, an anniversary...whatever! Link me up before Oct 15th, and I'll pick a RANDOM winner to receive a nice little RAK. Check back tomorrow, and I'll have a little sneak peek at the goodies!

I'm all amped up for the Poppy Ink October kit to go on sale tonight. See some of you gals over there!

What wonderful milestones for you to celebrate!! I'll consider your challenge -- but this is one of the times I'm at a disadvantage for being mostly caught up on my photos! LOL! Yeah, yeah, I know -- no sympathy from anyone. ;)

kudos to Bryan!
that IS a great accomplishment. Please tell him J and I say CoNgRaTs!!
Loved your fear layout, really touching.

I'm doing your challenge but please don't enter me in the drawing....you spoiled me last time!

Looks like Jill had the same problem I did earlier...clean up your email! I shouldn't talk, I wait half a year before getting rid of stuff.

Tina said...

Hey just wanted to say that I found your blod through jill's. I love that fear page. I feel fearful for you. The thought of my husband ever being in the military scares the hell out of me...just the thought of the unknown. I loved reading over your blog and will keep checking back. Hope you have a good one!

OH, and what you told me about the giant moth, OMG. Moths are the bugs that I hate the most! I have such a HUGE fear of them, I still have no idea why. If I see one I FREAK. I've made John come home in the middle of work before to come kill one in the house, lol. Gross...
Anyways, hope you're having a good week! I'll talk to ya soon!
