Finally! A layout! I have to say that I am loving Jillibean Soup. The journaling sprouts, patterned paper (Alphabet Soup was used in this layout) and my absolute favorite, the corrugated alphas were so much fun to work with. Everything coordinated so easily! And I am absolutely in love with the texture from the corrugated alphas. Fun. Fun. Fun.

I will be hosting three challenges over at over the next three weeks and this is my example for the first challenge. The three challenges will lead up to National Scrapbooking Day which is on Saturday, May 1st this year.

The first challenge is a number challenge. You can read all about it right here. One randomly chose lucky winner will win a Prize Pack from You have until April 18th to complete the layout challenge. If you complete all three challenges, you will be in the drawing for one Grand Prize at the end of the three weeks. All of the winners will be announced on May 1st.

You can also read my latest Estee's Take column, which is up over at You can read all about my epic battle against the wasps and the soggy Apple Jacks that I found in my shoe. Intriguing, yes? You know that you can't resist a good soggy Apple Jacks story. Don't deny it.

Are we all surviving Monday? Barely? Me too. Geesh. Is it Tuesday yet?

I so agree with Michelle I cannot resist any of your stories. Those corrugated alphas are awesome and I just might have a great idea for a LO!! I'm doing a paper on birth order and relationships. So since I'm first born I think I should do a LO and some of the traits. We'll see how doing homework and everything fits in.
