Emotional Day

What a day yesterday was! If you read yesterday's post you were probably aware of the fact that I was a little bummed about the prospect of losing the house that we finally decided on to another buyer. All that disappeared when we went to go spend part of the afternoon with Kimber to help her decorate for her husband's homecoming from Iraq. Welcome Bill!! We are so very excited to have you coming home! Enjoy your day with your sweet family! You have to check out her blog to see the cool effect she added to the picture of the flags we put up. Her new blog header looks cool too.

Last night we heard back from the realtor for the home we were hoping to buy. After several counters back and forth, we are now the proud owners of a new home!!!!! I am thrilled beyond belief. Thank you for everyone's well wishes and all of your prayers. I am so happy to have that all in order and ready to get on with the move. We will be closing at the end of March and moving right after the girls start spring break here.

So, how about a layout. Yes, you heard it right. I have actually done a couple of layouts in the last couple of days. To create the pattern paper in the top left and bottom right I simply placed letter stickers on white cardstock and painted over them with acrylic paint. After removing the stickers I outlined them with a marker. I also created a fun strip using letter stickers.

I haven't taken a picture of the other layout but I will post that one as soon as I do. Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous day!!!

Lisa, congratulations on the house! Is it the one you wanted and the other buyer backed out? You will have to tell us all about it! I love house hunting (that'swhy House Hunters is on every day!). I still can't believe how fast everything has happened for you. Thanks for the link to Kimber's blog. She is one of my favorite scrappers! How exciting for her family! Great layout too!

So glad you are getting things settled. And really, I think there are some things in the economy that are not bad, but they do not get any news coverage because it doesn't get ratings. Off to take a peek at Kimber's blog - so nice you could help her!

Congrats on the house, so nice to know that everything it in order and working out just fine! Also, I've left a couple comments for Kimber but if you talk to her tell her that they have been in my thoughts and prayers often and I'm so happy that Bill is back safe and sound and they can enjoy being together as a family again!!
