I haven't had a chance to read the issue yet, but I did flip through to see a layout of mine in it. The 2008 HOF gals each contributed a layout from their winning entries for articles in the August and September issues. Mine appears in the September issue, so look for me in there if you get CK. The layout they chose was one of my faves from my entry, so I was pretty excited. I can't wait for some free time to sit down and enjoy the rest of the issue.
In non-scrapbook related news, I had a burst of spontaneity on Thursday evening. I went to the dealer where I bought my Explorer 6 years ago to get a brake light bulb replaced. Well, instead of leaving with a new bulb on Thursday night, I drove off the lot with a new Explorer Friday afternoon. So spur of the moment and so fun! Sometimes, the best things are the unexpected ones. Didn't really need a new car, but why not? I'll miss my old one...it served me well. I think I'll look a bit more classy now, don't you?
I'd also like to wave "Hi" to a hometown friend here in PA....Stacy! "Hi Stacy!" I hear Stacy has been reading my little blog, and I am glad that she is enjoying it. I'm not sure if Stacy knows this or not, but she is the reason why I am named Denine. You see, my Mom and Stacy's Mom were friends from High School. I guess they both got pregnant at about the same time, and I guess they both had the name Stacy in mind. Well, for whatever reason, once it was revealed that they both chose the same name, my Mom decided that it would be best for her to chose a different name...that's where the name Denine came in. Not exactly sure where she got Denine from, but she liked it. So, if it wasn't for Miss Stacy being conceived about the same time as me, you guys would be reading "Stacy Zielinski's" blog today! Pretty neat!
And, I am glad that some of you were interested in the 2 punches from my previous post. I do want them to go to a good home. I wish I had one for everyone who was interested. I loved everyone's happy and upbeat attitudes. Remember...happiness is contageous!
Ok, so Ryan picked a name out of a hat (so to speak) and the winner is:

So, Britt, drop me an e-mail at Denine2@aol.com with your addy. Then, I can get your punches out in the mail. I am off to get some stuff done on this gorgeous Sunday...maybe even some scrapping! Thanks for stopping by my little blog, and I hope you all have a great day!
