Woo Hoo - lots of scrappy fun this weekend!!

Good morning ladies!
There is a whole lot of scrappy good fun happening this weekend!! First off - I have a RAK to give away!

The RAK is the second leg of a pay it forward train! It started with the Willowtraders Blog Hop. While that is fun and motivating all on its own - last weekend I received an unexpected very pleasant surprise! The super talented Nicole - Made by Nicole - Not only shared her creative work - she also was giving away a RAK. Guess what! I won!! In the spirit of paying it forward - and the appreciation of Nicole's generosity - I thought it would be fun to Pay it Forwad with my own RAK! So - this is what I am going to give to one fun guest here on my blog!Four brand new sets of thickers, one scenic route black alpha, one set of fontwerks labels, a Prima chipboard alpha and two stamp sets! I think it would be fun to have a PIF train - win a RAK - host a RAK. What do you think? Have you ever been part of a PIF train? Do you think it would be fun? Leave me a comment on this post and on Monday morning I will pick a winner. The "goods" are already in the envie - I just need the winner's address and off they go! Will it be YOU?

Also - Treasured Scrapping is having an X Marks the Crop! It has been going since Monday and there are a billion fun challenges posted on the board and you have til the end of the weekend to upload for some great prizes! I plan on working on it all weekend! Here is my first layout for Julie's Ahoy! Show me your Treasure Challenge!
Journaling reads:
Treasure comes in so many possible forms. One thing I have learned in life is that the physical things mean so much less than the relationships we have in life. After 30 years that statement became crystal clear to me as I lived the journey of this angel’s birth vicariously through his mama’s pregnancy and birth. Once he was here, his mama selflessly shared every aspect of him with me. From surprise hugs to picking boogers to cuddles and having him fall asleep on my chest to dirty diapers to the ultimate – a simple “Auntie Lisa – I missdid you today. That statement from his little mouth brought tears to my eyes. Jamie – I missdid you too! He is my greatest treasure.

Have a peacful productive Saturday!!
