Re: New CT member

I am so excited! I have a new CT member, starting today. She was a paper scrapper
and just decided to go digi. I would like to introduce you to Jenny. I found out she
lives only 40 miles away from me. I am so excited. She will be joining my other 2
very talented layout artist, Kim and Marilyn. ;)
I'll be showing you layouts by them from time to time.

I also ordered me a 160 portable Iomega EHD to put my design tool on.
My laptop drive and other EHD's a packed to the max after 4 years
and I needed the space
to put all my tool for Photoshop. So....I bought me a birthday present at a great
price. The price is regularly $160 and I got it for $87 with free shipping. :)
DH does not know it yet, but I still need another External for my kits.
I am watching a 750 GB Iomega and hope to get it the end of May.
I also need an extra battery for my laptop and Tuma Softwares Preset
viewer to see all my Photoshop patterns, shapes, brushes, etc. The "need"
never cease. It takes a lot of space to design kits. Some of my design psd file
are 300mb in size, which adds up quickly.
I also need an USB power source to protect all the stuff I need. I have a surge
protector, but with all I have I really need to be able to shut down my computer
in case the power goes down. If all else fails I will take DH's and give him my
surge protector.
I made a layout for a DeDe Smith crop last night. I used her Farm Tearz kit
and a sketch she gave at the crop. I just have to scrap these goofy picture
of our HUGE 7 month old Pit Bull puppy.
Enough dreaming. I need to hit the sack and get up early tomorrow.
See ya.

Re: checking in

I am not very good at keeping up my blog post. :)
Hopefully I will do better since I have stepped down
from the RAKscraps Creative team. It has been
a fun filled 2 years+ on the team for me, but I
need to concentrate more on designing and
my family

I am studying up on how to pretty up my blog with
some of my kit paper also. Might be a little
tricky though, because I shifted everything
over to the left to make room for my big side
bar on the right. Gotta have my music.
Oh that reminds me I saw a wonder U tube
song I want to show you all. It one of those
thing where the people are in the dark and have
white gloves on and make their hand look like
word, etc. It's amazing!! The spell out God with
their hands.

I finished my part of the Scrapdish April 2008 Collab today.
It is going to be a very fun and funky mega kit by the
fabulous designers at Scrapdish. I post a preview and
the link when it get into the store.

The RAKscraps mega kit also went up today. It will be up until
the end of the month. My very last contribution in in it.
I'm going to miss all my friends on the team there.

Here is another one of my QP's from the Detour
To My Heart QP Album in the store.

Going to have a early night tonight,as
we have church in the morning. See ya.

Re: Woo...hooo, I finished your present

Are you all ready for a freebie? Savannah and I made the cutest little QP for
you all. I should have scrapped Savannah with it, but could not resist this
fun picture of Santana, jumping the garden row string last spring. She
is such a blessing and never ceases to put a smile on MaMa face.

Savannah, came home today with a headache and her jaw hurting from
her reverse head gear. The orthodontist is stretching her upper jaw so
her top teeth will be in front of her bottom one. They say if they do it
young, then they might not have to break her jaw and do surgery as she
reaches her teens. Sure am praying for this. So.....oh yeah.....didn't think
I forgot your present did ya?
The blue paper is from my Detour To The Heart Kit , flowers and ricrac are extras I made. The dirt overlay and metal elements are from my Boyz Luv Dirt! kit,
also available at Scrapdish.
You can get it here. or click on the preview. Enjoy.

Detour To My Heart QP Album+

Hi everyone,
What a fun filled day I had. I finished up my Detour To My Heart QP Album
for the Scrapdish store. Then I made some extras and layout of the girls with
them. :) It sure feels great to finally be scrapping again.

My first layout is of Santana. I used QP #2 and added the alpha blocks(they come blank in the Detour To My Heart Kit) for her name and age.
Fonts are LD Atomic and LD Delightful
Isn't she cute with her hair piece in. She is growing up fast

The next one is QP #1 and is of duh....
The names are done with Stamp Act Jumbled. Love that font and use it
all the time. I took the inspiration for this QP from my terrific and talented
CT member, Kim. Here is her layout. I did not have a little cutie with
pigtails for my layout, so I added frames. This QP is included in the set,
with and without the frames. The frames all all included, so you can use
them on the 2 QP's that I left the frames off.
Next is Sara, again. Cool chick, huh? Gotta admit my new kit is very bright
and cheerful. :)

I made a few more, but I'll save those for tomorrow. I'll try to finish the QP
freebie for the blog tonight. I plan to make a flower garden for you.
I added Detour To My Heart to the store the end of last week, but I added
a paper clip flower to it today. I had a lot of fun with that one.

Here is a look at the Detour To My Heart QP Album. Nine pages total, plus frames.

Gotta run and work on the freebie. See ya. :)
