Love you always

Thankful that:

I won at Digitals bingo and got a $10 gift certificate for DeDe Smith's store and $5 for Barb Speck's
_______________________________

It's funny but a few days before I won, when I was downloading some of DeDe's freebies, I was thinking that if I had money to spend in her store I will get her "Happily Ever Afterz: True Love's Kiss" kit because I love Sleeping Beauty. Naturally, when I did win that was what I got. Be careful what you wish for because you just might get it.
