Well, my first course at work is over. It went really well, but now I'm a busy camper at work.

As far as scrapping is concerned...well I'm just waiting to get more material to bro needs to send me pics, and some friends do too. I have older pics, but it's hard sorting through them! Posted by Picasa

Wow, so things are better today! Beautiful blue sky...although cloudy. But still. Taught for the first time in this new job today. Only part of the course that I'll be teaching, but still, it was great to be back in the teaching seat. I love it.

Still waiting for my brother to send me pics of the kids as little ones. I lost all of mine in a hard drive crash. None too happy about it, because I know I had better pics than him! Grrr...

It's going to be a busy week I think, scrap-wise. But I'm looking forward to the challenge.

Well today has to be one of the most depressing types of days. I'm off sick, going to the doctor tonight, and it's a typical cloudy cold damp fall day. Not to say that fall isn't beautiful. Most days it is. It just seems to really match my mood today. Gloomy. So I'm on the computer, reading new digiscrap tutorials, checking the mail, avoiding the telemarketers and waiting for 8:20 to roll around. That's when we'll leave for the doc. I'm anxious as anything and just want to hear some good news, like I've been over-reacting. But at day 28, I highly doubt I am.

Hey hey all! I'm so excited!!! I just received the news that I'm invited to join the CT for:

I can't wait to work with her amazing stuff! Just had to give myself a toot on my blog!

Well, here it first kit designed by moi! I cannot believe that I actually did it. But here it is. Be is my first kit. I would love feedback on it.

It's called Forest Frolic. (Link removed - now available at ). Have fun with it, and drop me a line if you made a layout with it!

Wow, it's been a busy day. I've been working on my own digi-kit. On this stupid computer it's amazing that I haven't lost my mind. The hardest part is developing the preview! Grrrr!

In other news, I'm one of the finalist for Blue Fairy Design's creative team call. I won't hear anything until September 21st, but I'm so excited. To be a finalist is just a great thing...but it would sure be nice to be on the team. I love her designs.

Spent a really lazy weekend overall. I spent Saturday evening with my brother and his family. And when the kids went to bed, we watched The Blue Collar Tour with Jeff Foxworthy and friends. What a hoot! My sides are still sore from laughing so hard.

Well, I think it's pretty much off to bed for me because I'm really just too frustrated with my computer to work on it anymore. But I will give you a little teaser from my kit, which I will be offering here as a freebie.

Well I'm going to start posting some of my layouts that I'm most proud of. For various reasons. I think with all of them, I learned a new technique or design feature and that's why.

I did this one as part of a challenge on SBB. It was sort of an inspiration challenge. I used the same kit from MissMint as my header, as you can probably tell.

My adorable nephew inspired me to make a great layout using pics of all his funny expressions.

Well I'm finally getting around to creating a blog for my digital scrapbooking. Hopefully in the next few days you'll see my layouts, some links to my favourite sites, and some pics of those I hold dear. Forgive my ignorance as I learn how to adapt to this software.

Hope you'll visit often, leave comments on my layouts, and enjoy my ramblings.

Oh, and a very gracious thank you to MissMint for the Blue Lavendar kit, used to create my banner.
