Hooray!!

So much going on here these days.... We had an offer on our house so we are going through the inspection process...etc. now. The night we got the offer was an emotional one for all of us...really finalized our life here. It is hard to say good bye to Texas and our home that we LOVE and our friends we are so blessed to have made here... So many changes. But...we would be silly to not realize how fortunate we are to have an offer with so many houses on the market--- so HOORAY! I created this card using Echo Park Little Boy collection (paper and stickers). I used the My Favorite Things cloud trio die to cut out the clouds and then added the "Hooray!" sticker (SRM stickers) to largest one. I added a few metal accents and some hemp for the plane trail: Although the next few months are going to be tough for my family...we are choosing to focus on all the GREAT things about our move: Closer to family; Down the road from my baby sister (Gasp--haven't had family in my area FOREVER!); Changing of seasons (I have missed Fall so much!); Teaching the kids how to ski and snowboard; Being able to make more family events--weddings, graduations, birthdays; Having my kids be able to grow closer to their cousins.... ....and so much more! I am ready! (I think!) Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Cammie,

Congrats on the offer that was made on your house. Thats great news especially in this economy! I know that you are going to miss Texas but Pennsylvania is really awesome and if you will be near Pittsburgh, then you picked the best side of the state!...LOL Plus being down the road from your sister will be fantastic for you!!

Your card is adorable and I love the plane and clouds. It would be perfect for a little boy or a big boy who loves airplanes!

Your airplane card is so cute. I really like how you added the hemp for the plane trail.

Hooray is right! What a relief to get your house sold!!! Crossing fingers all goes well at inspection. It's hard to close one chapter, but you have a great one ahead of you. Cute card to celebrate, too. (((Camster)))
