~Good morning Saturday, ONLY 6 More days to go!!~

I am SO excited today!
It is ONLY 6 more days until Cherrie and Aymee Fly into Nashville
for a 4 day visit and the Fisk-a-Friendzy!
The anticipation is killing me!

I was trying to figure out what in the heck to bring to my first BIG crop then I decided....
to just go ahead and BUY a pre-made kit and after looking around and worrying
about getting it shipped here in time I decided on this one from Noel Mignon
Normally I would not blog about what kit I buy but I am in
TN and she is in CA and I am not kidding I got the kit in ONE DAY!
I was so happy and it is perfectly coordinated and filled with new goodies,
so I am ready to create!
A little on the spendy side for me. But I figure it is worth it for a special day.
And I am hoping I actually get to scrap! I am dying here! LOL

And on a side note. My friend Jennifer F. is doing a class at Scrapbook Heaven.
It is a REVERSIBLE THANKFUL BANNER one side says WELCOME and one side
says THANKFUL and its a KIT that will also do 2 full page Layouts.
So I told her I would put it on my blog and get the word out.
Here is her blog and more pictures then I have.

Well, that's all for me today. I sound like a big advertising board this morning LOL
I am still sick but feeling better today for some reason.
I am coughing and croupy but I feel more like myself and less crazy! LOL
If that is possible.
I made 30 tags yesterday and am hoping to do 10 more today between
cleaning and shopping for company coming!
Gotta stock up on food and drink and get ready to bake before they get here.
I am thinking Pumpkin pies, Homemade Bread and maybe Gingerbread Cupcakes!
I made these last week! Thanks Tracey!
