We had so much fun at the SS! I plan it during the day b/c I wouldn't have kids at home. And, of course, Madysen got an ear infection and had to stay home! Too funny. She was wonderful, playing quietly in the living room while I hosted. Here is my page that inspired the instructions.

There is also another SS tonight at 8:30 central! Don't forget the Daily Download--today is D3 and it's not too late to start!

Mint Chocolate Chip: the kit!

One of my favorite things I've designed was my "Mint Chocolate Chip" paper pack. I've always wanted to expand it into a full size much so that i made a mini kit for a Speed Scrap! Now, I've expanded it. And, I LOVE my new kit! Green and brown pretty much sum up my favorite colors, and you put them together and I fall in love!

So, here is my new kit: "Mint Chocolate Chip"

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THE PAPER can get the elements only (plus the 5 new papers)! Go here to buy it now...okay wait, please read until the end of the post...there is a freebie! (plus a coupon!)

I've had so much fun with this kit, I thought I'd try something new! I've made an iPhone album. I love my iPhone. I take it everywhere. I check my email, text, update facebook, the list goes on and why not take a digital scrapbook with me too! Now I do! I created these fabulous pages for my iPhone! I'm now sharing them with you...for a GREAT price! Only $1.25! (**HINT: if you don't have an can also be printed out as a brag book! sssshhhh...don't tell anyone!) GO here for the iPhone album/brag book!
Here is one I did that is blown up (picture take by Brigham Mayfield)

I've been very busy since I've gotten Daisy back up and running! (She's doing fantastic thanks to my friend Darryl!) I've also created a worn alpha to match this kit!

And, if you buy the kit this get the alpha for FREE!!!

Last, but not new date kit! So fun! "It's in the Cards: Dates"

Hold are almost there...almost to the freebie!
Now, let's see what my CT has done with my new kit (and other stuff too!)...


And, here is mine! (I did this for Britt's My Story Challenge at SM)
And, because in respect the stimulus bill being passed this week, and people needing to stretch their dollars as far as they can go...I present my loyal fans/customers with a coupon! **This is only good through SUNDAY!** So, act quickly! If you spend $ get 20% off! Coupon code: mint_discount_20

Now, as a reward for reading my entire post...a freebie! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

**Edited** I just read a thread on DST that many people are getting viruses from 4shared (in general--not my downloads); therefore, I have decided to switch to a new provider. You can download the freebie here now!
...and don't forget to leave some love or thanks! I hope everyone has a totally awesome, fabulous weekend!

I feel productive!

I have done so much today, or at least I feel that way! I finished my freelance project. I would be okay not to see a 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade grammar/writing lesson for a very long time! But, I am thankful for the work, so I won't complain!
In addition, I designed'll be seeing a new kit and other things on Friday....and yes, even a freebie!
I also did the dishes, gag. But, i needed to. And, the laundry. Why do these things never stop? It is not pretty around here since I've been working 8-10 hours a day and letting other things slide. Oh well, my kids are clean and fed, what more can they ask for ;)
Tonight, we had a speed scrap at SM! Totally fun and challenging for me! Andrea rocked the SS! Here is the LO I did in 90 minutes, tho technically, I chatted for at least 45 minutes. Then, the LO came together, and I LOVE IT!

As I said yesterday, or Monday, I can't remember now...we are having a new Daily Download starting Monday Jan 23rd! It is so great. Here is the preview! (Thank you Tater for doing it!)

I hope you all have a great night! It is time for me to be heading to bed! See you Friday!

New Daily Download

I forgot to put this in my post earlier! But, we are starting a new daily download at Scrapmatters Monday! This kit is SO fun. Brenda, Tater, Wendy, and I all contributed to this fun kit! This ad will give you a bit of a preview! I'll be back later this week to show our full preview!

I'm avoiding!

What a weekend. I thought we'd have basketball, but H woke up at 4 am with a fever and strep. Gotta love it. He did tough it out and got to baseball tryouts, but only had to do fielding. They were kind enough to not make him bat. It took a total of 10 minutes. Thank God b/c he couldn't have made it much longer. He went home and slept for like 3+ hours! And, all the time, I also had to work on this project! So, as I checked on him, entertained M, I also worked my tail off this weekend.
In between pages/lessons, I rewarded myself with some design time. I have some things coming out this week. So, be on the look out!
I am on the last day of this project and need to get back to work, but I decided to avoid it a bit. Oops! I wonder if I can go waste some time on facebook?

The cards

I forgot, I also wanted to show everyone the cards my son made for his class. The first one we did together. He used my Be Still My Heart kit to make the girls' valentines. The second, he totally did by himself using Photoshop! I told him how to make things smaller and did the drop shadows. So fun! He used my Kamping Rocks kit. I'm very proud! (he wanted no hearts or anything on the boys' cards!)

I'm making some Sonic Drink holders with goodies for my kids' teachers. I'll take pics of those tomorrow and show you!?!? I love digi scrappin'...makes things like this so much easier...and cheaper!?!?!

Is Baseball Really Here?

Amazing, seriously! I can't believe we are done with basketball (okay, we have a game Saturday.) and starting baseball! (tryouts are also Saturday.) Sunday we bought H a new bat, cleats, and sliding shorts. We also purchased some essentials for M--she'll be playing tball this year! She demanded a pink glove, cleats, and helmet! And, of course, got all three. So a girl needs pink, who cares?!!
Then, tonight, after throwing with the kids until dark, we took H to the batting cages. While there, we ran into his manager and a coach from last years team. So fun! My little man is growing up. Its amazing to see how tall he is, and now is swinging a bat that I know he couldn't get around last year! Also amazing is that he picked up right where he left off! He does love baseball. As do I. I cannot wait to start watching him play again. I'm a score keeper for his teams, usually, and believe it or not, it is actually difficult for me to watch a game if I'm not score keeping! I get way too nervous b/c I think about how he's doing too much. Silly, I know. So, in honor of baseball season, I thought I'd share a page from last year that I did. This was one of my very first LOs I did as a digi-scrapper. I used Misty Cato's clipping mask tutorial and scraplifted her page.

Sunday, February 8, 2009


I just did the Speed Scrap. I have also finished some of my freelance project. I'm taking the rest of the day to spend with the family. We might run into LR to buy H a new bat and M a new glove. H has baseball tryouts next Saturday, and M will be playing t-ball this year!
Here is my LO from the SS>picture is from our trip to NYC last weekend.

A Long, Interesting Day

Note: I haven't had time to do pages over all of the following events, but I do have pictures to share. Scrap pages to come soon!

Well, I am still in recovery mode from our travels this weekend. M and I had the fun experience of visiting my friends in New York/New Jersey! We had SO much fun!!

Here is my godson...I brought him a cowboy cute is HE!?!?!

My friend, Tracey, and I took our daughters to American Girl Place. A and M LOVED it!!!

We walked down to the Disney Store on 5th Ave., but I was afraid M was TOO tired to walk all the way back, so I suggested a taxi. Tracey hailed a cab, and a LIMO pulled up!!! WHAT!?!? The driver asked us where we were going and offered to drive us for $5...uuuhhhmmm, yeah! So we hopped in and snapped pictures the entire ride! I even made Tracey take a picture of me paying the driver!! SO FUN!

Then, yesterday, after getting home Monday night, hard wood floors were installed in the living room. Today, was the carpet in the bedroom. We are getting the house ready to be put on the market. I sat in the LR, surrounded by the contents of my house today and nearly had a panic attack. SO, instead of panicking? I took pictures so I could remember that no matter how bad my house looks, its not as dirty as THIS day!!! I'll get pics of the new carpet when everything is back to normal.

So, tonight, Hunter decided to lose another tooth. No biggy, you say: "He's lost many teeth." You are right, he has. But, never have we lost one down the drain, and NEVER have I turned off the water and opened up the drain. GAG! Of course, the tooth wasn't there, but he did write a note to the tooth fairy. (He made sure to say that if she could, would she please get the tooth out of the drain! awesome!)

So now, I'm going to eat cereal for dinner and head to bed. Too bad Lost isn't on here until after midnight...don't ask, it is a very sore subject for me. Any other Losties out there? How good is this season!?!?!

Oh, and I forgot. I do have Daisy back, thank you for all the well wishes! She was so sick, but no viruses, just operating system issues. I've been working for days to re-install everything!
