looking forward to a wonderfully busy weekend

The next several days are going to be pretty busy - just the way I like it! =)  Tonight, it's a birthday dinner at Gino's for my dear friend, Tobi.  Yummy yummy pizza and time with great friends.  What could be better than that?!  Tomorrow, it's off to Reactions for a much-needed haircut.  Saturday morning, my bestie and I are getting pedis at Vogue - my first ever!  My sad-looking little piggies can't wait!!  Then, the pièce de résistance Saturday evening - my friend Jamie's wedding.  I am *so* happy for her and her Bo and am so excited to be sharing in their special day!  Sunday means more time with my bestie and her family - lunch and a photo shoot.  I can't believe that my littlest godson is already 3 months old!  He is growing up w-a-y too fast!!  Oh, and sometime in the middle of all that craziness I need to prep for my card class on Monday.  =)

Well, gotta run for now!

Can this really be post #113?

I can't believe that this is post #113!  I had been thinking about holding a big contest or giveaway to celebrate my 100th post.  Guess I'm a little late! ;)  So, I'm going to plan waaaay ahead this time.

For my 125th post, which will probably be in a few short weeks, I will have a week-long contest - complete with 2 drawings at the end of that week.  One winner will be chosen at random from all of the contest entries and one winner will be chosen at random from everyone who "follows" my blog.  And the prize?  Two one-of-a-kind Midnight Rooster kits that I've created using some of my very favorite products from all of the kits that we've released so far!  Each kit will have a retail value of approximately $25.00 and include a little original creation from me, too!  How does that sound?

So, here's what you will need to do.  Create a layout or card (using any product of your choosing) and post a comment on my 125th entry,  remembering to include a link to your project.  You have a few weeks to create your beautiful masterpieces, but don't wait until the last minute - my 125th post will be here before you know it! ;)  And, don't forget to sign-up to "follow" my blog.  One lucky reader will win a kit, too!

Here's to #125!
