Happy Monday!

Hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I sure did.  We had a wonderful surprise party for my Mom's retirement.  It was truly a surprise, which was nice.

Then on Sunday I found my lost engagement ring.  I had lost it back at the beginning of April.  I had given up hope on ever finding it.  But then Sunday morning while looking for something in the very top drawer of my lingerie chest there it was.  I was so happy I cried happy tears.  Actually I was blubbering like a baby, but Ed dried the tears and all is back where it should be:)

Today I wanted to share with you a new challenge blog.  With a special shout out to my friend Misty who is on the fabulous design team.  It's the  A.R.T challenge blog.  You will find a new challenge every Thursday that you can play along with. This weeks challenge was to use this sketch to make your project.
