HOLD THE PRESSES!! Do you see that bright pink blinkie to the right?? ----------------------->

Yep that one! I got published in the Sept/Oct issue of Creating Keepsakes Magazine.  It's getting ready to hit stores, so be sure to check it out! I am in the Fresh Faces article. I can't post the layout on here for a couple more weeks...but believe me I will as soon as I get the ok!! In the meantime, I have some new goodies to show you!

This is the summer I discovered that I am not meant for ridiculously hot weather :D But I guess if there is a silver lining in this cloud, its that I have spent more time creating this summer than I have in a long time. Feels so good. Its therapeutic and fun!

This first layout was a challenge from some friends. Create a layout using the words or title from either the Star Spangled Banner or America the Beautiful. I was quite surprised when I googled both to discover they had many more verses then I knew. This quote turned out to be perfect.

This next layout came from a challenge my friend Suzanne the AMAZING came up with for me :) She's great like that. Always helps snap me out of a slump or use something I wouldn't have thought to use. This particular challenge had to use some type of mixed media (ie. paint, gesso); have the color blue somewhere and must use an office supply. (I used the shipping tag).

This photo of my uncle throwing my youngest daughter back into the water cracks me up everytime I look at it.

This last layout helped me deal with the hot TN summers :) I miss the snow, but am so glad we had the opportunity to play in some serious white stuff before moving here!

Well I HOPE to be able to get back into a routine of updating my blog a little more regularly. Until next time...
