Clean & Simple: Pursuit of Happiness

I wish so bad you could see the new contest going on with the Pals.  Clean & Simple is the name of the game and this was my design.  It’s really a common card made by so many, but I think it’s classy.

Why can’t you see the contest and all we have to share? =(  Because it’s private and only open to Pals.  I see many of you in my future though… LoL.  My Circle of Pals welcomes anyone!  Yes, anyone!

Today marks my 24th Air Force Anniversary and I am beside myself wondering where all the time went.  I remember at 10 years my mom said to me, “You’ve been gone for 10 years, is it time to come home?”  What did I say?

If the answer wasn’t obvious… I said, “…but mom I’m having so much fun.”  LoL.  I went around the world twice before the age of 20.  When people ask me where I have traveled to my response is, “Gosh, it would be easier to tell you were I haven’t’ been.”  (this is where my AF career flashes before me in less than 5 seconds).

As time comes closer and closer to retirement (someday), not yet though… I’m still having fun… LoL, I know what I will be doing after that.  I will be on top of the World with Stampin’ Up!
