It sure does feel good
to be back blogging!

Yesterday I showed 
you a DOOR.
Remember it?
Well...I hate to tell you this
BUT it is NOT
a real door.
Some of you smarty pants
already figured that out,
didn't you?
Can you guess WHERE
this door is?
I thought not.
Let me 'splain.
I had Lulu here for
the weekend.
She is my
My friend, Donna,
had sent me a box
of "stuff" for the
kids a while back.
Lulu was in 
Craft Heaven.
She put a whole new
twist on banners.
First she cut out 
triangles from card stock.
Then she cut out
pictures from my old
Fall magazines.
We printed out the words
Happy Fall!
5 letters for each side
of the larger center 
Pretty clever, isn't she?
What's INSIDE the 
door at the top?
It's the hidden
exclamation point!!!!!
Now-how cute is that?
as cute as THIS~

Tomorrow I have 
a whole 'nother 
project to show you....

I'll be around right 
after my morning coffee-
Don't be bothering me before that, m'kay?;>)

your photo name
