a couple of new things & another little giveaway.

as mentioned the other day... this year is flying by!  totally forgot to post my april scrap again projects! the theme this month was "buttons."  not hard for me!  i almost always use buttons!  they are one of my favorite embellishments.  how about you?  what's your favorite?  tell me & you'll be entered to win a sweetly smitten collection pack & banner stickers from sassafras lass (see pic at bottom.)  they sent me a lovely box when i was a guest on their blog   being the sass hoarder i am, i already had all of the pattern paper x3 plus the banner stickers!  so, rather than hoarde, i decided to share!  :)  the giveaway will close on monday, may 2.  open to international, if you don't mind paying shipping!  :) 
have a lovely monday!

 and a sneak of  one of my may projects:
(i know what you are thinking - "i can't believe she used black cardstock!" hahahahaha!  i did actually use a little kraft this month too!)  

this is the bit i'll be giving away....

it's time to register again!

for the nike women's marathon/ half marathon.  i am so excited.  i'm putting together a team this year.  it was so amazing last year, but i think it would be even more amazing with a group of friends!  i really, really, really, really, really, really, really, hope my girls and i get in this year!  i didn't get in through the random draw last year (but rather last minute as a special nike + member invitation.)  oh!  i hope we make it in the random drawing.  it was such an unbelieveable experience!  words can not describe it.  i'd love to repeat one more time before we move...
