Whoo Hooo!! That, right up there, is my warm-up exercise for the NDIDDS at Designs in Digital!! I still need to figure out a few things, but what I do know is the kit is FREE for the next 7 days!! (this is no longer available :( ), and make sure you check back often because there will be links for free kits for a while!!
Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fuss-budget. That means that every item in this kit is created digitally from scratch, with no extracting or CU products. I love tiny detail work, and this is right up my alley! I sure hope you enjoy this kit.

Another Bit of Big News is that I am hosting the Word Art Challenge at Digi Town Square! Beginning on the first of May, I will offer 2 challenges per month. Read about them here.

Oh, and keep checking in because I have lots more fun stuff coming up--freebies, news, and who knows what else!

Until Next time-

Today I have the day off from work, so I'm working on a bunch of Digi-Scrapping commitments.
One of those is the Gotta Orchard progressive scrap, where you are given a couple of rules, and once you commit them to your layout, you can't change them when the next set of rules come out the following week. The challenge is over now, but it was a lot of fun, and of course I scrapped my most favorite subject, Isabella--here is my layout:
Yesterday was an interesting day! I had to teach a class at JoAnn Fabric on making a strip pieced pillow, and due to my previous week screw up, I knew I was only going to have one student. Half an hour into the class, here come 2 ladies for an applique class. Oh dear, the education person at the store told me that she was cancelling the class, but never bothered to officially cancel it, so I ended up teaching 2 entirely different classes at the same time! Of course, since I didn't know I was teaching the applique class, I was completely unprepared. It was super interesting, because the first student was not a quilter, and needed a lot of supervision. But all 3 of the women were gracious about the mix-up, and somehow I managed to teach both topics. Not as thoroughly as I would have liked, but I think it went ok. Once I got home, though, the wine box was tapped!

Once again, Time has just whizzed right on by me. That's because I'm so into digital scrapbooking now, and my life is pretty much wrapped around it. I'm on two creative teams, and I'm involved in several websites. I've also signed up for 2 different designer activities, but they don't start until May 1st.

So, what is going on? I've been creating some fun templates and word art. Now I just have to figure out how the heck to use one of the file sharing programs to make them available for downloading. And I'd sure as heck better figure it out quickly, because I hear tell a rumor of a blog train coming through, and this will be one of the stops!

I promise to be much better with the blogging. If only I didn't have to does tend to get in the way of life, doesn't it?

But for right now, here is a layout that I made with a new kit by Fairytale Studios, available at Digital Candy, called The Way I Are.

This kit is so cool because it isn't a kit that you immediately look for baby photos to scrap with.
This layout, by the way, is of my daughter, Bronwyn and her hubby, Al, and their 2 dogs, Barney and Loki.
And now, for a totally different type of layout with the same kit, here is one of the gal I work with:
I love this page because it is both fun and sophisticated...
Well, that is it for now, but I WILL be back withing a day or two to keep updating.
Until then, keep taking pictures!
