I Won! I Won!!

I started my day checking my emails and found out through some friends congratulating me on my win, that I had actually won a contest over at Hero Arts Company Blog.  So off I went to check it out and when I saw it on their blog (big baby that I am  lol!)  I started to cry.  I don't win much and when I do I feel so happy and blessed.  I felt the same way today.  You can read all about it bye clicking the above link or their button in my sidebar panel.  Maybe you might want to enter their montly contest  where there is always two chances to enter.  The theme for August was Teacher Gifts and Staying Connected.  So I made this note pad for a teacher.  I just took a plain white note pad from the Dollar Store and covered it with this front panel that was decorated in a cute bus, on it's way to school.  The funny thing is that I felt that I should have added the word school to the bus but it was to late to change it.  So funny how things work out!  Lol!  The school bus is a Hero Arts Digital Image and you can find it here!

 It was so much fun doing this project and to be honest I never thought that I would win, and not because I don't think my work is good enough, but because there is so many talented women over there it is crazy.  Must make it difficult to pick each month.  This month's challenges are up and you can read all about it here.

Thanks so much for checking in with me.  I still do have a bunch of other things to share, like the cards from the blog hop over at Sweet & Sassy stamps and of course, my Deedee's Digis creations.  I will be back later!

I love summer and we are going through a heat wave right now.  I don't want summer to end but, a nice cool breeze would be so appreciated right about now. 

Hugs To You All
