Cocoa Daisy October kit and quick randomness!

First the VERY GOOD NEWS - We got our new house this week!! It's been a very busy week to say the least. After almost 24 hours of airports and flying I finally made it home from Mykonos Sunday night at 2am. Sadly my luggage did not. I am happy to report that unlike the flight to Mykonos in which I passed out in the aisle of the plane, I made it home without incident. I was up right away Monday morning at 7am to discover I had two sick little boys. Honestly after having been away from them for so long I didn't mind that they had to stay home from school. Then after a little more stress about my closing we finally did close on Tuesday afternoon. The rest of the week has been an absolute blur of sick little boys, jet lag, catching up on everything and getting started on making our new house OURS. Today was the really big push-painting, painting, painting....did I mention painting? But it is looking wonderful! The entire house needed to be painted due to some poor attempts at painting from the previous owner (no offense intended). We had so many people helping move and paint today, I am so blessed to have such a wonderful group of family and friends! I think another week or so and we should be moved in. I promise pictures when it's all done. I know a lot of you are waiting to hear about my trip to Greece and to see more of the amazing things that I saw while I was there and I am hoping to post all that tomorrow.

For now though here is a look at the fab October Cocoa Daisy kit "Happy Day" the perfect blend of colors that make me think of a blue skied fall day.

I love that this kit has an exclusive stamp AND those cute little bird tickets were made just for the Cocoa Daisy October kit as well!

Here is what I created using the kit:

We have the Tim Holtz tiny attacher as one of the add-ons this month and I LOVE THAT LITTLE TOOL! You can see a demo on how to use it here.

Thats it for tonight! Hope you all have a great weekend ;0)
