The Blog Train is leaving the station!

Hi all!

Wow has this month been busy!  I don't know about you but getting the kids ready to start school, starting school, going through IEP meeting for all 3 of the boys, trying to get the little one into school per the request of all the professionals that work with him, battling illness, working on the embroidery business, and on and on..... has just made last month sweep by.  Now that we are getting some sort of schedule with the kids, I am trying to rearrange my schedule to get the most done with the time I have.  I do finally have something new going in my shop today as well as several freebies you can pick up. 

Let's get to the good stuff!  The Blog Train this month is in called "Inspire Me" which you will find was definately interpreted differently by all the Designers participating this month.  The color scheme is beautiful and I hope you will like what I have done with them.

You should have come from Delicious Scraps
Your next stop will be Missy's Moments
If you happen to get lost, the full list is at The Blog Train
Now don't leave just yet as I told you, I have several freebies that you can pick up.  But first, my newest release is called Grateful, as I have been totally feeling that lately for all that I have and what has been given to me.  It is part of September Lovely Colors over at With Love Studio, so there are several other options to intermix minis.

And now for the freebies......Yeah!  I am hosting the Lovely Use it or Lose it Challenge over at With Love Studios all month and have a mini kit that matches my Grateful separates. And then I am also hosting the With Love Studio Facebook Freebie.... so be on the look out for both.
Thanks for sticking with me through my MIA this past month.  I am truely hoping that it won't be like that this month too.
Have a blessed and safe holiday weekend!

All Aboard the Choo-Choo Train!

Good day everyone!

Hope you all are doing great!  I know those of you whose children went back to school full time this week are having a little break.... and now is a great time to pick up some freebies, play some games and make some layouts. 

This month's train from DigiScrap Connect is leaving today because there are so many different blog trains and just too many for all of us to keep doing them all on the first of each month.  So now you can expect this one to come mid month every other month.

I know everyone has started getting back into the fall school schedule, or at least starting - on this side of the ocean, but we so don't want to forget the summer quiet time just yet (if you got to have any that)..... introducing "Seaside Holiday".


Here is my part for you (just click on the preview or link below the preview)


You should have come from Design by Krista
Next you should stop by Digi Deborah Designs
If you happen to get lost, get the whole list at DigiScrap Connect
Now don't forget to leave some love for the parts that you pick up and definately don't forget that the Dog Days of Summer are still going on at With Love Studio with some great prizes and sales from all of our Designers.

Have a blessed day!

Dog Days Of Summer!

Hi everyone!

So sorry for the long break.... things have been so crazy.  The kids are getting ready to start school here on Weds, so I have been running around trying to make sure they have all their appointments taken care of.  Then our embroidery business has been taking off, so I have been working like crazy to get everything done there because if I get behind there .... just dont want to think about that.  On top of all that, my insomnia and sinuses have been nuts..... then the cherry on top, my computer got an awful virus that almost made me lose everything. Yuck, yuck, yuck.


Ok so now that you are caught up on my crazy life, we are having a great time over at With Love Studios.  We are having a Dog Days of Summer Pie Eating Contest, which just means that we are giving 2 templates away per week that you need to complete layouts for and then you get prizes!  On top of that, each of the Designers are having sales at various time thoughout the month.  This week is my week to give a prize to the pie eating contest participants. Then I will have my shop on sale from the 10th - 18th..... it will be 45% off!

Now with all that fun going on.... how can you resist!  I haven't had anything new just yet but I have been working on a kit for the Feature I have coming up in a online publication.  The kit is very out of my comfort zone but I think that it came out beautifully.  Can't tell you anymore than that until its released but be on the lookout for my post.

Have a blessed day!
