Reach for the STARS and BLOG CANDY!!!

This is the layout I did for a swap at an all day retreat at Sheri R's house. Only a few people were invited, so I was honored to be one of the few to attend. I received 14 projects to make, but only ended up completing a few. One project took me about 4 hours to make! I will post some of the fun projects later this week, and the others when I complete them.

I used a PageMaps layout, which I located on Jena's blog. I always find such great ideas from her blog. Thanks Jena! The pictures are of my son and daughter, which were taken in September 2007.

Okay, for the blog candy, leave a comment on this post and your name will be entered into a drawing for a Reach for the STARS layout kit. I will draw a winner on February 16. I also am giving two away now to Jena and Stacy, because I won blog candy from both of them and wanted to give something in return. I will get theirs in the mail later this week.
