So today was one of my lucky days........

Last night was a hard one sleeping wise, you know the kind. You wake up around 4 a.m. with a headache and can't get back to sleep.....lets' toss, let's turn, let's really hurt our back in the process! Yep, that was early today....then the mail came.....:).

Then I was all smiles because I won Hope's fantastic giveaway with wonderful goodies added by Michelle....brace yourselves!

I don't think I've ever seen more wonderful business cards...front and back are so artistically thought out...hmmmm, I need a new business card...who to ask for help.....?

Please excuse this photo, I mucked it up completely....doesn't do these pretties justice!

I was thrilled that Hope wrote on this bundle that these were some of her favorite old papers to create with...good enough for Hope?
Yep, good enough for me! They're gorgeous, thank you Hope...

The coveted "little bits" bundle from Michelle's shop,
that's right, you can go get your own right now....all wrapped up in a beautiful Moleskine pocket organizer...what a wonder.


A glimpse inside, I was so excited at this point!

Thoughtful.....how nice is this? My name in old game pieces and tiny envelopes....sigh.....

Tons of beautiful cut-outs of pretty papers and wallpapers, old labels....

More pretties to create with....

Look at all this ticket wonder!

Hello, my name is Happy!

Wrapping up, I just love all of it and it has truly inspired me to pull out my old journal and incorporate lots of these bits and pieces into it.....and since we leave for vacation on Sunday for the beach my journal is definitely coming with me, along with all this wonder.....can't wait to show you what I do with it all!
(Now if I can just find those pens that Hope loves.....)
Thank you so very much to Hope and Michelle for such a great giveaway!

yay! glad you liked everything! I have been OBSESSED with old paper letters so I have so many and just had to spell out your name :)

Feel free to reorganize the sections, I did what came logically to me, but I find that usually is NOT what is logical to others!

I wish I had known it was your birthday and I would have included a birthday card - Happy birthday anyway! Have a wonderful day!
