Sorry for all of that....I just want you to be updated on everything :)
So anyway, here's my entry for Embellish Magazine- which is heavily inspired by Julie's card here.
(update: in response to Laura's question, yes, that is in fact a washi tape heart! I placed some tape on a piece of cardstock, punched out the heart, then peeled the tape away from the paper so I could add it to my card!)
In other news, my brother and sister-in-law are visiting this weekend! Yay!
