It was only a matter of time

I don't know about the rest of you, but I am about sick of all the stupid infomercials on Nickelodeon. This is actually one of our favorite topics of discussion at work.
Thanks to these lovely commercials my children ask me for everything from slider stations to mighty putty. Yes, they have even asked for the dreaded snuggie. My children even yell out periodically "It's my money and I want it now!!"
The other day while Jade was at school we saw one for this thing that you use basically to rub the hair off your legs. I told Jerry when she saw it she was going to tell me I should get one.
She just saw the commercial this morning. She says to me, "Mom, do you have unwanted hair on like your legs?" I said, "No I'm good I shaved my legs." She persisted, "but mom it says if you call now they will give you another one free!"
Oh! The joys of motherhood!

Ok so I am a total slacker about my blog.
I am just going to share one quick little story because it cracks me up.
A week ago snoopy had her puppies. There are 7 of them. I'll have to get some pictures up when I quit slacking. Anyways, 2 nights ago at like 2am one of the puppies starts screeching like it has been hurt or something. Then snoopy started whining. Finally I pulled myself out of bed to see what was going on. I opened the door to find out that one of the puppies had climbed out of the box and was screeching because it was lost. Snoopy just looked at me like "Well, aren't you going to put it back?" so I put the puppy back and went back to bed. I guess I have been trained. She did the same thing last night. What a punk!!

CT Call

It is time. I am doing a CT call. For those who do not know CT stands for creative team. CT members help designers by using their products in layouts and posting them to online galleries, so people can see their work. It is a great thing for both the CT member and the designer.
My requirements are simple. Just make 2 layouts per kit and post those layouts to 3 different galleries DAC, DST, and a 3rd gallery of your choice. Also post your layouts to your blog with a link to my store. In return, you will receive my kits for FREE.
If this sounds like something you would be interested in send me an e-mail ( with a little bit about you and why you want to be on my CT, a link to your best gallery, and a link to your blog if you have one.

Also, I finally got the quick page album for Love Song up in the store. Where you will also find a QP freebie.

I can't believe I forgot to mention the sale.

Look! Layouts from my wedding. Yay!!

I told you I was going to make some layouts using pictures from my wedding, and I finally got them done. I am so excited.

I made these using my kit Love Song, and honestly I think they are the best layouts I have done in a long time, especially the first one. (Layout also uses word art by Bethany)
I saved the second one as a QP, and I will get it up here to give away (yes, another freebie) in a couple days when I get the album into the store. Until then, happy scrapping!

Well, we are done with one magical time of year and moving onto another. I guess not all of you would consider Valentines day to be magical, but I like it. After All, that is when I got married.
I'm finally starting to see signs of Love around the town. Today, while we were running an errand, Jade say a sign that said XOXO. Now that she is starting to read, (I know, I'm surprised that she is reading already,too) she likes to read the signs when we drive. She was trying to sound out XOXO, which was pretty cute. I had to explain that the X's and O's are hugs and kisses. I don't think she got it.
Anyways, after the After All kit, my husband started asking me when I was going to do our wedding album, so I started a kit with our wedding colors (pink and silver) and added a few more just because I like colors. This is what I ended up with.
And for making it this far. I have a little freebie for you

After All

Finally, I have had a few minutes to put a new product up in more store. I am also very excited to let you know a little about how this one came to be.
Last June, my brother-in-law got married. I was just getting into digi scrapping, so I was very excited to work on a wedding album for them. Their wedding colors were Coral, Ivory, and Chocolate. There were not a lot of kits in those colors, so I decided to make my own kit. This was my first kit ever and the only one I did before the design contest at DAC. When I did the design contest we were allowed to do whatever we wanted the last week. I had learned so much over the course of the contest, that I completely redid the wedding album kit. Then, I got a new monitor and saw how far off I was with the colors were, and I made a few more changes. So this is the new and very improved After All. You can get it here.

And because you took the time to make it down this far. Here is a freebie for you

And I have an extra QP to give away in the next couple days when I get around to putting it up, so come back.
P.S. If you like the new blog background, stay tuned. It is a preview of coming attractions.
