Wanna know what I have been up to?? Take a look...

Yep, you see that right folks! That would be a layout, 6 cards and one goodies box....

Do you wanna know why I have been working my fingers to the bone?? (or stained permanently chocolate brown??) Because I have the extreme pleasure in participating in a phenomenal board swap with some pretty phenomenal ladies!! (I won't be so obnoxious as to name-drop - but you phenomenal ladies know who you are!)

So before I bagged up all this wonderful "Wonderland" artwork up, I just had to photo and share...I actually hate to bag it up now and send it off. (I just wanna stand here and stare at all it's beauty. Like it's the newborn I just gave birth to...cause lemme tell ya girls...I labored over this stuff!!) But since I am already a few days past the deadline...I best be packing it up and shipping it off!!

Of course I will be back this week with close-ups and details about all that fabulousness you see up there! :)

Thanks to all you lovely ladies (all 76 of you!!) who checked my blog out and thought it was good enough to want to follow or had already been following. I promise I have every intention of making it worth it!

I had originally intended on having my handsome 8 year old son pull a number for me and I would take a great photo, etc. etc. (You get the idea...) But he seems to be a bit uncooperative this morning. (Something about a penguin needed to be fed in his club??) So I have decided to use my next best option...I random generated a winning number....

So the winner is...
