HAPPY FRIDAY y'all! It's about an hour into Friday and I'm on my way to bed after spending almost the entire day chatting! ROFL! Hmmmm ... and why does this NOT surprise you??? :)
Justify Full
I started my day with a LOVELY voice chat with Vicki - A Work in Progress as she was awaiting the shuttle to take her from her hotel to LAX for her return trip home to England! We had a GRAND time as I got to hear much about her adventures at CHA and she has LOTS of photos to share with us when she is home and settled! I can't wait!

I began to work on a preview for *Love Me Tender* as it is going into my new store and the phone rang. I looked at the area code and thought it was one of Robert's sisters and I hear a male voice on the other end as he asks for Linda! Who is calling I asked? OMGosh!!! I could hardly believe it! I was speaking with a first cousin, once-removed (he explained all of this to me and I need to study it out so that I REALLY get it!) for the first time in his 51-years of life and my almost 55!!!

I shall have to catch you all up, but I spent most of Wednesday night on the phone with my baby brother who had already spoken with Gary and then I spent over two hours on the phone with Gary this evening and then my brother again. I was sitting at the dining room table and realized that I had covered it with all of my findings when I had started researching my father's side of the family five years ago.

I've seen photos of my great-grandparents for the first time and we MAY possibly now have the correct spelling of our surname. I still need to send over to England for some documentation to help verify some of the new information I have received as there seems to have been some misunderstanding as to where my grandmother was born. I grew up believing she was born in London, England and am now finding out that BOTH she and my grandfather were born in Poland! The surname changed when my grandfather immigrated to England and I'm believing this was sometime during the Industrial Revolution when many Europeans were looking for a better way of life. I shall be doing more research into this as well!

Okay, enough of that, I am just SO excited but need to put my focus back into my designing and store preparations as well as returning later in the morning to give you the next set of acrylic frames!

My dear friend, Carole has some LOVELY Valentine's cards to share with us and I will be giving those out next week. Carole made these from my *Love Me Tender* scrapkit and they are BEAUTIFUL! Thank you Carole!

My BFF, Snowsmoon's Design has an AWESOME *Romantic Heritage* scrapkit for FREE this week and she has just posted the elements and TWO coordinating alphas! Scroll down to collect the LOVELY papers!

Click on the preview below to download from her blog and please leave her some WARM Scrapland lovin'!!! I just LOVE the greens and browns in this generous versatile treat!!!

I'm off to LA-LA-LAND and I'll see you later on with my goody for y'all! SCRAP HAPPY!

Linda :)

P.S. GRANNY 201 - The font used for my journaling on the US frame is - Leaf Queen Script, a free download. You should be able to GOOGLE it and find where to download from. I've had it for quite a long time now and don't recall offhand which site I found it on. Hope that helps!
