An Exciting Day!!!!!!!!!!

Look what I got today - I'm so excited!...
That's Travis the super-nice sales guy with me and my new Beetle! I am in love with it! My lease was up on Sunshine (my green beetle), so it was time to either start a new lease or buy, and we decided to buy. I can't believe how SHINY she is, and she's even got a spoiler in the back - yeayyyy! I feel like the luckiest gal on earth! Now to pick out the perfect flower for the inside, and come up with a name for her - hmmmmm......


On the crafty side of things, I do have one project to share with you today. It's for the Studio Calico CHA Challenges - five of them! Now, normally I don't believe in combining challenges, but in this case part of the deal was that you could combine these challenges any way you like, so here's what I came up with...
The challenges were to scraplift an SC member's layout, use stash that's at least a year old, draw on your layout, use ephemera and whitewash a background. The layout I scraplifted was this lovely one by Lisa Truesdell called "Grow." Oh, and p.s. I missed the deadline for these by an hour or so, but I still played along just for fun.

My project for tonight is to work on getting my room organized. It seems like an overwhelming task, but I'm just going to take it a step at a time and we will see what happens.

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! Thanks for stopping by and I will be back again tomorrow with an update!

I always wanted a beetle as a child. since it is red, you should call her Lady or Ladybug or if you are feeling particularly British, Ladybird. Great car!
