a TOOT! Hot Air Balloon and does anyone....

Hey everyone!  Today is a GREAT day, I'm finally feeling like myself again--YIPEE! :)  I've got something exciting to share.  Two of my cards were featured on the Jillibean Soup blog today!!!  A first for me and I'm TOTALLY excited!  I have shared them from this month's Harvest Festival kit from Scrapbook Circle.
yesterday I came home from dropping my boys off to piano lessons and noticed a hot air balloon-SUPER close to my house.  So close that I could hear the people speaking and the fire being blown into the balloon part.  What did I do?  I ran into my house grabbed my camera popped the zoom lens on and start shooting like crazy (in manual--thank you Amy!) My hubby happened to be home and came out with me too, so fun!  thinking I need to scrapbook a page--I have ridden on a hot air balloon when I was young it was a right place right time thing and it was AWESOME!  Don't know that we have pictures of that (we have video) but this would be fun to write down those feelings....
One last share.  I have been project life (I have to do some major catch up--like 3 weeks, I do have my pictures and calendaring stuff I just NEED to do it!) ANYWAY, I also follow Becky Higgins blog and a few weeks ago she announced that she was coming out with some new product (different styles of page protectors and Envelope pages).  I JUMPED at the opportunity to buy her things--they ALWAYS sell out and I didn't want to miss out.  (they also inspired me for one of my Christmas gifts which I can't tell you about because the person READS my blog!)  I wanted to talk about the Envelope pages--they are AWESOME for organizing!  I'm trying to figure out how to organize the top of my desk a little better--anyone have great ideas to organize photos?  Anyway, this is what they look like:
they are sturdy so that you can put heavier items in there.  I placed on of my grandma albums (pictures to come!) unbound in there and it fit and closed just fine.  I'm really happy with my purchase, the quality is guaranteed.
I'm off and running.  Actually, I'm sitting and typing while my laundry washes... :)  Thanks for the visit today!

My very first Project Life order just came in the mail. I am planning to start with it after the first of the year. I'm not doing a photo a day, but I can't wait! Somehow I missed these fab envelopes, but I'm off to check those out. :)
