Oh Happy Day!

This is my friend Julia.
Julia Rocks!
She called me yesterday afternoon to see if I had gotten my mail. Yep, got my mail. She wanted to know if my October issue of Creating Keepsakes was in it. Nope. No CK for me. She had gotten hers and saw my very FIRST published layout on page 105! She called to congratulate me. What a sweetie!
About dinner time Julia called again and wanted to know if I had found a copy of CK anywhere. (Allan had called a store, but no success.) Nope. No CK for me.
Julia then told me that she was coming over. A half hour later she arrived at my door with a copy of the October issue of CK, for me...a copy of my very own! She also brought me a Starbuck's gift card (does she know me or what?!) so I could get a latte' to enjoy when I was ready to pour over the magazine.
Yep, I'm blessed!
Julia is an amazingly wonderful friend!
Love ya, girl!!!

And here it is. The layout. I was one of the 5 winners for the CK "You're My Hero" layout contest. My hero? My awesome hubby of course! Who else? I am so proud of Allan and so happy that this layout was published! Now everyone can see what a great guy I have!
Happy. That's me. Right now. VERY happy!
Thanks Julia for being such a thoughtful friend! Thanks CK for publishing my very first layout! Thanks Allan for providing me the inspiration to create this layout and for being such a great husband!

Congratulations! Your layout looks great...I need to get my hands on a copy so I can look at it more closely :) (I renewed my sub. a month late...so I will have to find an Oct. copy too!)

And I'm impressed with your sweater vest...I got into knitting several years ago...but have never done anything that involved! I know how much time must have gone into it! Great job!
