I WON!!

I am in shock here. I popped in my email a little earlier tonight and saw an email from Lain Ehmann, who created the whole idea for the Get a LOAD of this, layout a day challenge. I figured it was a general..thanks for playing email, and opened it to see what it had to say (she is a super fun person, check out her blog by clicking on her name above). Here is what it said:

"Sit down... ...take a deep breath... You completed 31 layouts in 31 days. Do you feel good about that? You should! You should feel amazing! You should feel empowered! You should feel GRAND.... BECAUSE YOU ARE OUR GRAND PRIZE WINNER!"

Well, here I was, actually on the phone with my mom..reading this email and my jaw drops! I figured that there was no chance I could win this..so many people joined the challenge and many of them saw it through to the end. I figured my greatest reward was the layouts I had completed (and the time everyday that I took just for me..not easy to come by with 5 kids under 8 years old!)

A huge thank you to Lain for creating this challenge and all of her hard work over the last month to keep it rolling. Another huge thank you goes to Big Picture Scrapbooking for hosting this on thier site for FREE!

When my goody package arrives I will show pictures of me (jumping up and down of course) with my goodies!
