Good Monday Morning!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I had a pretty busy weekend. Friday night I enjoyed a crop at Scrapping Fanatics! That's my gf Jayme's place and its FABULOUS!!! I love hanging out there - but more importantly I love shopping there. Her stuff is awesome and so are her prices. Check out her store - tell her Mona sent ya! Every other Friday night she has a crop and gives away prizes. Lots of fun and great challenges too. Then on Saturday night Anam and I went to Canada's Crop for Kids crop. Didn't get much done, but then at crops I rarely do! I spent more time chatting with Janine and Trisha than I did actually getting something done. And then my poor boy ended up getting sick with the stomach flu. We all got it at Christmas and so when he didn't get it, we'd thot he'd got lucky and avoided it. Well, not so lucky for him he ended up sick all weekend. Thankfully he was doing better this morning and got to go to school.

Anyway, here's one thing that I did get done this weekend:
Next to my kids there is nothing that I love scrapping more than my nieces. This is my gorgeous niece Brianna. She is the cutest thing and I love her to pieces. Most everytime I call Winnipeg and talk to my sister, she and her little sister Aliyah ask if they can come to my house

for a sleepover. I wish they lived closer so that I could actually have them over. I am hoping

that one of these days my sister and her kids will
actually be able to spend some time out here with
them. Anyway, these are pictures from last year but I just love them. The colours are so brilliant that I just needed to play with them.

Then I got some pretty exciting news today. Anam and I are going to a Retailers Event on Feb. 17&18. Its great - Becky Higgins, Bazzill, Cloud Nine, Canvas Concepts, the Heidi Swapp team, 7 Gypsies, 3L Corporation, Creative Imaginations, Cosmo Cricket, EK Success, Fiskars, Heidi Grace Designs, Making Memories and Provocraft will all be there teaching classes or doing Make 'n Takes. They're all gonna have their new winter CHA stuff there too!!! I am sooooooo excited. Anam and I thought it would be a good idea to go to get the "Just Like Snowflakes" name out there and a little more recognized. I am really excited to go!
