Today has been a GREAT day for me.
To start off, today, my son Jackson had his 5th grade assembly and they put on a little play and he said his part soooo well. The teacher worked so hard on getting all the students to say their lines and it flowed excellently!!!! I was so proud of Jack.
My 2nd good news is this. As you all know, I submit cards into HeroArts weekly challenges and so far I have not won. Part of their blog, they have a section where they show and discuss that weeks challenge and they usually ask for the visitors to leave comments After the comments are left, they do a random drawing thru Random.org and certain numbers are picked and that is how the winner for that particuliar Give-A-Way is choosen. Well, I left a comment, I was comment and the Give-A-Way was for a set of Clear Stamps. When I checked my email after returning from my son's assembly, I see an emailed entitled HERO ARTS BLOG WINNER. I clicked it, not thinking anything and GUESS WHAT??.........I won the Clear Stamp Give-A-Way!!! My name is up there, on the blog, as clear as day - KIMBERLEY JACKSON-BROWN....
I have attached the link so that you can view it as well as the comment that I left.
I am just so happy and tickled pink that I won!!!! I just had to share. As soon as I get the stamps, I will upload them and the creation that I make with them...
Thanks for stopping by...as well as listen to me ramble on....LOL!!!

This week has been such an amazing one! Our NEW President Barak Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the USA!! I watched this life changing, history making event on TV. I was glued to it as I sat in awe of what was about to happen. I was so emotional and had a loss for words. My grandmother is 95 and she and I talked about what she thought of this amazing event and she said she never thought that she would witness an African American as THE President. She said that this was a day that she would never forget. I bought the news papers and plan to make a scrapbook of this event, so that my children can remember.
In any case, I do want to let you all know that my laptop is now in "DELL Heaven". She has died and I am in the process of replacing her. This has been such a challenge for me b/c NOT having a computer shows me just how much I am on it daily. I borrowed my hubby's laptop, but he said he has to put me on a "timer" or he'll never get on it...LOL!
Now, b/c My laoptop is gone, the cards that I made had to be scanned and I do not think that the scanning captures the dimension of a card and all the embellishments...but I am going to post what I created for Valentine's Day. I will replace the scanned photos with the digital camera photos as soon as my laptop is working (fingers crossed - for Friday). I hope you like them and remember, feedback is ALWAYS welcomed and appreciated!
Thanks for stopping by!

How is everything going? It has been a long weekend for me and I am glad to be starting a new week. I typically don't like Mondays, but I am looking forward to tomorrow....
In any case, as you know, I weekly submit cards to the Hero Arts challenge that they have. What I think I am going to do is use what their challenge is, to spur my creative juices and create projects that follow that theme. I plan on uploading my Scrapbook Layouts too, but my scanner is not being cooperative w/me. I have a friend who will be stpping by to help me out w/it, so as soon as it is up and running, I will post.
This week...well, last weeks challenge was LAYERING and here are the cards that I created. Thanks so much for stopping by!

HAPPY NEW YEAR to all my fellow crafters! This year really flew by ....but I really want to THANK all of you who come by every so often and check out what I have done and leave VERY encouraging comments - THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!!!
I want to wish all of you, as well as your family and friends, much success this 2009. I wish that you all stay healthy and safe and that you take a time everyday to be grateful for the little things!!!! And most of all, BE CREATIVE - wether that is w/paper and glue, cooking, gardening...whatever...JUST BE CREATIVE!
I have been on a roll since the 1st of January. One of my goals is to create a Scrapbook Layout everyday....just one...and if I continue this throughout the year, I would have 365 LO's completed-that sounds pretty awesome to me. So far I have finished 4 LO's.....YIPPEE!!!!...so I am off to a pretty good start. I plan on scanning them later in the week and posting them to the blog.
I am going to post a few cards that I made for a weekly challenge that I am involved in. This week's challenge (per Hero Arts) was to create "Thank You" cards that you would send in reply to a gift you received. So, the jist was for it to have a hint of Christmas w/out it saying it Merry Christmas.
Here are the 5 that I came up with.....fingers crossed....wish me luck!
Thanks for stoppin' by
