  1. YIPPEE!!! Thank you so much, Alina! :o)

  2. Yay!! Were awesome we gave eachother awards!! I'm living in Great Lakes, IL right now. My husband is in the navy soon to be our but we are still going to stay in housing for awhile. I see you're not that far away from me. We should totally do a crop sometime!!

  3. I just looked up archivers and there are quite a few to choose from in the chicago area. My BFF and I always go there to work on cards and scrap pages just to get out of the house every once in awhile. We should plan a archivers trip. I would probably bring my friend and we could go to whatever one is close to you down there. The locations on the map are, Niles, Downers Grove, Naperville and Orland Park. This would be fun to meet up with a new scrappy friend!!

  4. Thanks Alina. I think the same way about you. Meeting and talking to you is fun and encouraging to keep crafting alive in our hearts and for everyday life challenges. Smoochez
