Show and tell time...

Lots of exciting things to share today! How about we start with some peeks from my April Label Tulip kit. I loved this kit...one of the best EVER! Be there tomorrow night at 6pm PST for the full reveal!






Wanted to give a quick shout-out to the fabulous Peata for featuring my "The Crew" mini-book I made for Red Velvet Kit Club as her fave mini-book of the week on her blog. Thanks so much, girl! You totally made my week!

I am also so stoked to have signed up for Teresa McFayden's e-zine Casa Bella. It promises to be packed with 12 home decor projects to spruce up your house for the spring. I subscribed to Teresa's Christmas e-zine, and it was fabulous! You should definitely head on over, and register from some inspiration delivered directly to your inbox. I promise, you won't be disappointed.

I also scored a copy of this book. I love the whole flea market experience, and I'm hoping that it will give me some brilliant new home decor ideas. And, Bryan has a little bit of a problem envisioning what I want to do with things when I originally purchase all of my "junk." He's usually amazed with the end result, but doubts it throughout the whole preparation process. I hope that this book will help him get a better mental picture from the get-go. I'll let you know what I think of it after I get it in my hot little hands!

Also, from that post I did way back with the Easter photos... I promised a little RAK for the person that gal that came up with the best title/journaling for that funny little photo of Hazel. So, Jenn Findlay...you're the winner! Your title was too cute, and I plan on using it once I get around to actually scrapping that photo. Thanks so much! In return, I have a nice little stash of some new Love, Elsie goodies to send you. Just e-mail me your address at charmedgirlnc@gmail.com, and I'll pop them in the mail to you! As for a couple of other RAK's, I'm working on those in the next few days, and will be back with more info on that tomorrow.

Well, Bryan made it home safely last night...after one flight cancellation, and about 5 delays. That 2:30 am flight got cancelled. But, I arrived to pick him up at the scheduled 7:30 pm flight last night. Yeah...that flight ended up showing up around 10:30, and the guys didn't even make it into the building from the tarmac until after 11! We got to spend about 10 minutes with him before they made him go to work to check in his weapons. Then, we sat around until about 1 am waiting for him to get everything turned in. Finally, around 2 am, we arrived home. Needless to say, it was a loooong day yesterday, and was even longer today. Ugh. I'm off to get some much-needed rest. And, I'll be back with more to share tomorrow...including the full reveal of my Label Tulip goodies! Later gators!
