It's no wonder I've had cherries on my brain

when this is the view of my street and all over D.C.

right now...



It's probably not a huge secret I'm not a big fan of living here...

I'm more of a small town mid west kind of girl

but I have to say,

I've never seen anything like the beauty of the

Cherry Blossoms in full bloom in the spring.




I am really, really missing this little girl right here...

my sister actually took a pic of Christi, Kat and I but it turned out all blurry

I have a very tempermental camera...

well ok...I don't really know how to use my camera
Anyway..

I was so excited to get to see little Kit Kat when we went back to Illinois,
we are great friends, her and I
AND
I am so lucky to have her Mom for a friend
she's always great company for conversation, a little wine, and a lot of coffee!!
was one of several people
(all to be thanked her separately in the very near future)
who jumped in to help me with this adventure
right away giving her opinion and LOTS of time
helping me pick out contents for the kits.


I'd love to have lots of pictures of my boys reuniting with their friends in Illinois,
however,
apparently I am no longer allowed to follow them around like a
"MAMA-RAZZI"
"it's embarrassing, GEESH!!"
Plus, I pretty much dropped them off at a friends's house and didn't see them again until we left....
SOooooo
Here's a picture of my sister and I at the ARCH
This time was so precious to me..
Jenny and I didn't grow up in the same house
(we have different moms)
and so we never really got to be as close as either of us would have liked
BUT
Time and growing up and living far away gives you completely different perspective I think
We had such a wonderful time, like old girlfriends!
Getting mani's and pedi's, hanging out
and she held my hand a little,
when I started crying because a GIRL was hugging my teenager!
AND
it was so awesome for the boys get to know their Aunt Jenny
and I think my youngest is crushing just a little!!
Thanks Jenny!
We love you and miss you!!


OKAY!!
SO THE WINNER OF
THE BEEEZ KNEEEZ
CUSTOMER BLOG HOP
IS
CHERYL!!!
BET YOU THOUGHT I'D NEVER TELL YOU!


Supplies Used:
Paper Cosmo Cricket Joyride
Stamps Inkadinkadoo
Supplies Used:
BEEEZ KNEEEZ KIT!!
THERE ARE ONLY
4 BEEEZ KNEEEZ KITS LEFT!!!
WANT TO KNOW
SOMETHING REALLY COOL?
Ok I'll tell you
The new kit looks completely different...
BUT
There are several elements from the
BK Kit
that blend really well with
"With a Cherry On Top"
I did that on purpose...
It was important to me that each kit stand on it's own...but I also want you to get the most bang for your buck and be able to do a lot of "cross over" if you wanted to..
Soooo
when you start to see projects with this kit, you might notice elements from both...I think this is so fun!!
I hope those of you who puchase both will give this a try!
I'd love to see what you make!!
Ok that about wraps it up!!
Finally!!
Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today!!

Thank you! I am so excited to be the blog hop winner!

Thank you for sharing the pictures of the cherry trees. They are lovely. As a midwestern girl myself, we are a bit behind you in the blooming department. But, our trees now have buds. Hurray - spring is on the way.

As I mentioned in my other comment, I am now following your blog. Your kits are adorable. Congrats on your new endevour.
