Inauguration Day!

So proud to be living here:

Remember, without change, there would be no butterflies!

I got a very fun "happy box" from my favorite little chica, Denise, last week. She gave me all kinds of wonderful goodies from Sephora for my birthday (which isn't until Saturday!) I love them all! She also sent me lots of fun Valentine's Day papers from Making Memories and Teresa Collins. I made this layout with Teresa's Crush collection:

And how cute is that little quote stamp? I picked up a few of those from Inkadinkadoo on my last trip to Archiver's. Denise loved my layout so I made her a similar one:

I left some space in hopes that she would do her own journaling but she is being difficult and wants me to do it. LoL!

You know what it means when I get a "happy box" from Denise, right? It means YOU get a "happy box" from me! Leave a comment here on this post if you'd like some scrappy supplies to play with and I'll choose a winner at random tomorrow!

I started celebrating my birthday early with my Bunco girlfriends this past weekend. We went to a wine bar and did some tasting of some wines from Argentina that were pretty good. It was my friend Wendy's birthday on Saturday so we celebrated her birthday too.

Saturday night, we went to see Seven Pounds with Will Smith. Have any of you seen this? WoW! It was extraordinary. I love those types of movies that really move me. That is the first movie I have seen for months. I'd love to go see some of the other great movies out now. What have you seen that you loved?

Thanks for stopping by and thanks to my friends that ordered my new stamps! Melissa says they are selling well! Yeah!

♥Happy Inauguration Day!♥
