I am going to be an AUNT!!!! HOORAY!!!!....

YES!  MEEEEEE!

I am SO excited to announce that my brother and his wife are expecting their first child and that I am FINALLY going to be an aunt!  I am OVER the moon about this...and even MORE excited that my kiddos are finally going to have a little cousin!


Being the oldest of 4 kids and having them relatively young (I was just about 24 when my oldest was born), I've waited a long time for the words "Auntie Jess" or "Uncle Chris" to be a part of someone's vocabulary, so we are just thrilled.  SO thrilled that I went right to my "Moka Jenn" stamp set from Taylored Expressions to make my sister-in-law, Jessica (yes, this gets confusing on holidays, especially because her married last name is my maiden name, LOL!!!) a card:


Today is also the 5th Challenge (RCC5) over at the Ribbon Carousel Blog:


I used some pink crocheted trim and some Aqua Twill on my card for today's "anything goes" challenge.  Gotta have pink AND blue since I have NO idea whether I'll be getting a new little niece OR nephew for a while <3  Did I MENTION how excited I am?   Last but not least, the paper is from the 6x6 "Good Day Sunshine" SAMPLER PACK from Claudia and Co. and she's popped up with Helmar Black 1/2" Zap Dots.


WANT TO JOIN us in the "ANYTHING GOES" challenge!?  C'mon! It'll be mutiny I tell ya!  Good times!  ;)

*** Please remember that your creation must have ribbon, bakers twine, jute twine, lace (basically anything that comes on a spool).

We’d love for you to participate! Here are the directions for playing along:
  1. Make your creation following the ribbon carousel challenge (sketch, inspiration, style or color) image. Be sure to include some type of ribbon, twine, hemp, lace....basically, anything that comes on a spool.

  2. Load your creation up onto your blog or a public viewing forum like Splitcoast Stampers, (use the keyword RCC5) with a direct link back to THIS post. Including the challenge graphic isn't a requirement, but sure is appreciated! A participant of our very first challenge didn't link back or mention our challenge and couldn't be named Top Spool, so don't let that happen to you!

  3. Come back to this post and link in your creation using the Inlinkz button at the bottom of this post. Your image may take a little while to pop up but don't worry it will appear shortly.

  4. Be sure to come back the Friday after the challenge ends to see if YOU are a Top Spool! :D

    This Challenge will end on June 6, 2011 at 11:59pm.

Last but not least, don't forget to visit my fellow Ribbon Carousel Teammates:


That's it for me today...see you back here tomorrow for TGF's "Royal Release" day!
