A new blog and a new team!

I decided this weekend to give my blog a much needed face lift. Yes, Frances's 3 month picture was adorable, but I needed to spruce the blog up a bit!!! After seeing my scrappy friends Frances and Susans's blogs I fell in love! So I contacted the gal that made it all happen Kristine. Doesn't she do fabulous work!! And so quick too. I just told her a few things I wanted like a sun and butterflies and this appeared this morning!! Isn't it adorable! I am in love with the new look. I can't stop staring at it!!! If you love it as much as I do you may just want to check out Kristine's blog and send her an email.

And I am so excited to finally announce that I was asked to join the Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker team!!!! I have wanted to be on this team since I first saw a sneak of her products over a year ago!! I mean it's like she is designing her papers for me-LOL! I am always drawn to cute, fun products that aren't over girly or over the top. Now I love what other people do with those products and wish I could use some of those, but when I do it never quite looks right. Anyway, I tried out for the team three times! I was going to give up, but my husband said don't give up, one of these times you will make it. I am so glad I listened to him!!

When she called to tell me the news I was in the middle of changing Frances's diaper of all things so I couldn't get to the phone. When I checked my phone I saw a number from Missouri and thought no...., it can't be Nikki Sivils calling me. There was no message so I thought yeah, it's not her. I sat for a few minutes and couldn't get the feeling out of my head though. So I called the number back. I couldn't think of anything to say except "Hi this is Sarah someone called me from this number and I couldn't get to my phone in time to answer it"-LOL!! She probably thought I was crazy. She was so nice about it and we chatted for a few minutes about the team. I could have talked to her all day, but again I didn't want her to think I was crazy!!!
