I know I am.  We put the kitties in jail and off we went, hubby and I had a nice 6 days in Florida, he at his parents in Panama City Beach and me at my parents in Gulf Breeze.  It was sunny, beautiful beaches, wonderful seafood, good family times with a little scrapbook shopping thrown in too.  What more could you ask for!  Maybe that hubby could have shared all that with me, instead you want to hear what his week was like?  His included yard work, cleaning out the shed, repairing the roof and working on his parents computer.  Who do you think had a better time?  I know what my answer is.

So I am newly refreshed and ready for the upcoming events to take place.  The scrapbook online store Everything Scrappn’, the one that I am on the design team, we are starting our first online contest and challenges.  I am SO looking forward to that.  I have come up with a challenge that I really like for the Everything Scrappn’ blog, you will have to check back on April 1 to see what that is.  But the contest I will be having, right here on this very blog, well that one will be FUN!!!!  We are going to play ‘Scatagories’ and I will be choosing the letters from the ones in our sponsors name, MY MIND’S EYE.  We will play 8 rounds and the winner will receive a My Mind’s Eye card kit.  On April 1 I will post the exact details here on my blog along with the first round of the game.  So make sure you check in and play, you could be the winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Our little Gucci loves bags.  It doesn’t matter what the bag is, where it comes from, he sees a bag and he will crawl his way into it and stay there for hours.  I think if he could crawl into hubby’s boots he’d do that too, and he has tried before, more than once, but he just couldn’t figure out why he doesn’t fit.  One day he even got into one of the computer backpacks, we are still finding cat hairs on the computer everytime hubby gets the laptop out.   Anyway, he knows he can get into the bagsso that’s turned into his favorite hiding and playing place.   I get those ‘green’ bags from Kroger, Publix, WalMart, Target, etc.  You should see his eyes when I start pulling those out to use, you’d thinking I just bought him a fresh piece of fish filet.  Of course I had to document his bag obsession by way of photos and scrapbooking.  Really, is there any better way.  So I introduce you to The Original GUCCI Bag……..
