Catch Up Time!!

So I have been having Internet connection issues for a LONG time now and have just FINALLY gotten them ALL resolved so the previous post is from the weekend before Easter it was just waiting here for me to press post, but I couldn't get to it!
So glad (knock on wood) my troubles are over!

So I hope everyone had a good Easter here is a pic of the boys with the Easter bunny and on Easter! Easter was interesting at our family this year, but MORE importantly is we were able to spend it with my grandfather and trust everyone cherished that time! I am SOO sad that in the madness of the day I never got pics of the boys with my grandparents or parents-CRAZY!

So in the scrapping world I have some VERY EXCITING news!!! I have

3 LO's that are going to be published in the June e-zine!!! I still can't believe it!! So one of my scrappy goals is accomplished for the year of getting published! As far as my other goal of making a design team I am still trying for that one. I didn't make the new Dixie Pieces team, and I am now waiting on hearing about the new Paper Popsicles team-it will be announced on their blog on Saturday! Speaking of their blog you need to go and check out the AWESOME giveaway they have going on right now!! I have been very busy with challenges this month and for Paper Popsicles I made the following. If you need inspiration they really have a LOT to keep you busy all month long! They also have great how-to's every month, this month was one for a sign and another about stitching on your projects! I had fun making a sign and I love the info about stitching!

Why is it the pictures come out in a completely different order than what you put in??? The egg card is the front and then a second pic of how the front of the card opens up.

I also did a photo swap at Paper Popsicles and I made this LO.

Over at Dixie Pieces they just announced that the April challenges will be due at the end of this weekend and they are changing the prize and adding a couple more challenges for the weekend! All in honor of the BEST holiday EVER National Scrapbooking Day!!! YEAH!!! Send my presents to Valerie.... LOL!!!! Here are a couple LO's I did for the Dixie Pieces challenges this month.

Well I need to get a couple more things done while the boys are napping so that's it for today, but I'll be back soon now that the computer is working again!
