So. Tired. Must. Post. RAK winner. and other things.

First off, I want to start off by posting my RAK prize winner, for one of my Purse-O-Nality class kits.

Congratulations Jenny in Maine!

If you could email me at, I'll have that right out to you!

Thanks for all your fun girlfriend stories, I love to hear them because we really do have such strong and special bonds, don't we?

Speaking of female bonding.....

I am so. tired. I had a late night last night in Edmonton, but had so much fun! It took a month of careful and completely covert planning, but we had a little surprise party for our friend Anam.

Anam isn't one for making a big fuss, but you know, this is just what we do when someone is having a baby. You're in Canada now, you gotta deal girlie. But I know she loves us for thinking of here and she's very welcome. We love her dearly and glad that we could bring a smile to her face and spend some time with her.

And yep, here is my contribution to her baby book. All I kept thinking was that she already had Fay, so how much advice could she get that she didn't already know.
So, in true Janine fashion, I decide the smart alec approach was the way to go.

Aren't those hilarious? I laughed for an hour after I found them. I thought perfect. Pregnancy brain does strange things to one's mind and sometimes a useful reminder helps.

And sadly, I forget my flippin' camera so I got no pics of the fun and mayhem, but if you check out Juli's blog you'll see the fun!

Meanwhile, the munchkin hung out with his Uncle and Aunt and they all had a wonderful time. Jake thinks the world of his Uncle Jared.

So, I hope that you all got your entries in for Prima's Go Green Contest! If not, tsk, tsk. hee hee
I have been cruising that gallery and I am completely blown away by the creativity of the entries. Wow. I mean it. Wow.

And I made another contribution for some more Go Green ideas. I made this tag book by using the back of the Prima brad nail packaging as my template. And..............on the back of the journaling card that I used, I used the backing from a Felt Mattie as a mask. I laid it on top of my card and I sprayed some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist. And if you haven't played with that stuff, for shame! No, seriously, that stuff is fun.

See ! The mask and the Glimmer Mist.

Alrighty, thanks for stopping by!

:) Wow, how awesome to finally get a chance to get on the computer and see that I won!! I am so excited!!

My bestfriend Sharon and I have planned a trip for her to come up to Maine next month and I sent the money out for us to attend a scrapbook event a few hours from me where Donna Downey was going to teach 2 classes, and you won't believe it...I came home from work today to find a letter with my returned check telling me that the event has been cancelled!! Now we'll have something to drool over!! Thank you so very much!!
