Blah Blah Blogging Along

Tuesday, February 28, 2006


The thermometer read a big fat ZERO this morning when we left the house!!! Yesterday it was 4! Man I have no idea why I live in New Hampshire except that the fact that I do love the other 3 seasons! Jeesh I'm freezing my tush off! It says it's 12 now, man watch out it's a heatwave! ;) Oh and guess what, it's gonna snow again on Thursday! Jolene, if you are reading this, you want it? ;)
OK the Cape is 10 days away!!! WOOHOO! But have I started to pack or even think about what I'm going to work on? NOPE! I have no clue! How bad am I? So yes I'll be bringing everything again! But I can't wait, it's going to be so much fun! And I probably wont get any scrapping done anyway! Told you I can think of nothing else! Well I also need to work in my room so how do I pack it? I have store samples to do and I want to get them done quickly but last night I had to work so that kinda ruined those plans. I did get 4 done on Sunday tho. Maybe a few more this week hopefully. Very fun new Wild Asparagus and Kaleidscope papers oh and Center City Designs! Can't wait to play with those! They are cool! One other mfg that I can't think of off the top of my head with some great colors and patterns. Love playing with the new stuff! The Sandylion dog stuff unfortuntely wasn't so much my style so that was more of a challenge for me but challenge is good sometimes! I am just not so good with stickers. LOL!
The boys are going to see Nanny McPhee today with the daycare. BYW, they loved the Pink Panther, thought it was very funny. I am so glad I don't have to take them to the Nanny movie too! LOL! I want to see the dog sled movie and my mom is taking them to that on Sat while we get our taxes done! So I'll be renting that one for sure, of course that will have to be when Josh isn't home because once he's seen a movie he narrarates the whole thing for you! ;) Oh and on that taxes thing, I could use lots of good thoughts for a refund and not owing please! Thanks!
OK off to work! Happy Tuesday!

Good Sunday Mornin'!

Well the snow has stopped finally! We got another 5 inches or so yesterday! Winter can go away anytime now! Michael is out plowing again so he is happy! The alarm went off at 3:15am and since I went to bed from scrapping at 11:30pm that was not a fun thing to hear! Well I never heard him get out of bed so I guess I went right back to sleep! LOL!
I cleaned house and then scrapped most of the afternoon since the boys went to mom's house. I got 44 Cards for Soldiers done!!! Way cool! I hope to do some more this morning before the LSS opens. Have to run over to get some stuff to do some page samples with new CHA stuff! FUN!
Vacation next week for the boys, I feel bad because I can't take any time off. One of the guys I work with is going to FL and I am off the most of the following week for the Cape. Oh well, I'm sure the daycare has good stuff planned for them anyway. Good thing they love going there! Mom took them to see the Pink Panther (well actually Joshua paid for them to go!) He's such a good kid! Used his xmas money and treated them all. I guess they thought it was funny, thank goodness I didn't have to take them because it didn't look funny to me!
OK, off to take a shower since I have told you everything going on with me! Have a great day!

I've been Tagged

By my good friend Rachael!

See below for the rules to this one and to see who I am tagging!

1. What are your three favorite life moments thus far? I'd have to say the day I got married, and the days I had my two boys.

2. Who are the three most important peeps in your life? Oh boy can I have 4 please? My DH Michael, my two boys Jake and Josh, and my Mom.

3. Where were you three years ago? umm, same place I am now, living my my house in NH with my DH and two boys, only thing different was the job I am doing was at a different company! Yep I'm a pretty boring person!

4. If your only three fast food choices were Taco Bell, Mc Donalds, or Burger King which would you choose? Taco Bell definitley!

5. If you could meet three celebs and talk to each one for 1/2 hour who would you choose? Oy, thats a tough one, I guess I'd say Oprah, Stacey Julian (scrapbooking celebs count right?) and Mel Gibson.

Rose (the tag originator) writes: Here's the catch though if you're tagged you need to come back to my blog leave a little comment that you've tagged up. So at the bottom of the questions when you copy and paste you'll need to grab and include the link to this very blog so others can continue on and let's see how many peeps participate.Here is the direct link to Tag Up in Rose Farver's comments!

The 3 people I am tagging: Cindy, Rach, Lisa! :)

Fab Friday!

I love Friday! The end of the workweek and the start of the weekend! Its going to be another busy one but that's OK! I have 3 circle journals to work on! Thanks Rachael! ;) And more home improvments but that is so much fun because I am loving the outcome!!! And Michael and I haven't killed each other yet, another bonus!
Two weeks from today and we will be at the Cape and with Cindy!!! Woohoo! I am sooo excited to finally meet her in person!!! Over THREE years of my life I have talked with this girl over the internet or on the phone almost every day! Man thats a long time to be friends an have never met in person!!! Cindy you better be ready for some craziness girl! ;)
I got some fun big white wooden letters to spell out the word SCRAP for my scraproom wall at Michaels last night. They are probably 12" and already painted so I can just hang them and do nothing with them! I love them! I have purple walls and white trim so I'm happy! I already have the CREATE letters that I altered so I'm thinking these will be just fine as is. I'm gonna hang them tonight to see, if not I can always alter them later. Once I get the new Chatterbox purple papers! ;) Last thing I want to do is get a long white shelf and put all my ribbons in mason jars. I love that look for color! Well decorating last thing that is! I still want to get cabinets and an island and remove the table. But that's for much later.
OK, gotta get to work! Have a great day and an awesome weekend!

Random Babbles for Thursday!

Two weeks from today and I pick up the girls at the airport! Yippee!!! Of course that means that I will also be one day over 40 yuck! But I'm still stalking Cathy Z's blog to see her insight on that since she turns 40 on the same day as me! How cool is that??? Now how come I can't share in some of her talent too? LOL!
February is just flying buy! I can't believe it's almost the end of the month already! I am not complaining cause that means Spring is just around the corner! I just love spring, and the trees budding, flowers blooming, windows open, fresh air! Oh I can't wait! And for whats after spring, my favorite season of all SUMMER!!!
I finished all the review stuff I had to do in work yesterday! Man that was hard, writing feedback for my co-workers! I think that might be worse than writing stuff about myself. I hate to write the wrong thing! I also don't know what the heck they all do, we all pretty much do our own thing! Not very easy to provide feedback that way. I'm glad it's done for a year at least! Now to sit back and wait for my review to be given to me! Well I know I work hard and thats all that counts!
I have to start thinking about what I'm going to work on at the Cape! I really need to start packing up my stuff! I would like to plan better and not bring my whole room and end up with a ton of unused stuff this time. I brought so much stuff I didn't use in November. Granted I do want to have stuff for the girls that they may need since they are all coming on planes and can't bring a lot too. So maybe I'll just pack it all again! LOL! Decisions Decisions! I wonder if I'll even get any scrapping done! I think we'll be so busy having so much fun being together for the first time it will be hard! Well Chris, Andrea and I have been together at once before but add Carol and Cindy in and it's gonna be a huge gab fest! I am so excited about this I'm like a little kid!
OK guess I better get going! Have a great day everyone!

Wednesday Already?

Woohoo! Isn't it nice when things are easy? My DH and I are total opposites, I mean really really opposites! And when you are redecorating that is not a fun thing. Well lo and behold, we are agreeing on stuff!!! How fun is that!! And man does it make things easy! So we picked out most of the stuff for the den/office and it's gonna look so great! Granted he hates the color I picked for the hallway but I think once it's all done he will change his mind. (I hope!) ;)

So everyone is back at school today, hopefully the nasty bug is gone for good! Jake was a bit iffy this morning but I can't stay home from work for iffy! Yep, I am working on that Mom of the Year Medal can you tell! ;)

I started making some cards for soldiers yesterday! Finally! I got a few done and have lots more to do with the fronts of old cards I've received as RAKs and such! I am going to recycle the fronts and make them into new cards instead of keeping them in my scraproom, got that great idea from a friend and I think it's the best! If you want to learn more about the Cards for Soldiers program, go here: This is a great thing and cards are not a thing that take up too much time to make.

OK that's all the blabbering I have for now! Hope you all have a great day!

Sick Tuesday

Nasties going thru our house again! Jake has had a stomach bug since Friday and last night I started feeling yucky, couldn't eat dinner. Josh started complaining too. Now he feels better, I feel better and Jake is sick again! UGH! Not a fun thing, it comes and goes. Jake has it the worst tho so guess who I'm keeping my distance from! ;)

Two weeks from tomorrow I turn the big 40. Man what is so bad about that number? I have no idea why that is bothering me so bad. I think I need to start exercising and dieting again so I can feel better about myself and then maybe it won't be so bad? 40 just seems so stinking old! Sorry for those of you reading this that may be older! ;)

Not much going on but the nasty bug so I'll get off here and get back to work where I belong! Have a great day!

Happy Presidents Day

Nope I didn't have the day off, but I did get to work from home. Which was nice because that meant a day in sweats and no makeup! :) The boys had no school and daycare was closed so hence the day at home. And good thing too cause I didn't feel well most of the day. Worked out well!
My sweet husband drove an hour away after work to get a futon for me for when my friends come in 2 weeks! The thing is awesome, brand new and what a bargain too! He rocks sometimes let me tell you! Most of the time but dont tell him that cause he doesn't read my blog! ;)
I made my first canvas tonight. I started with a digital page I made that I printed out and went from there. I think it came out pretty good. Now if the person I made it for as a bday present likes it I'm golden! :) I used the Bluebells kit from Sweet Shoppe Designs to make the digi page, very pretty kit, and it was a charity kit too! I'd share it here but I'm not sure if my friend that it's for reads my blog so I can't until I give it to her in a couple of weeks! Sorry!
OK, I've got to go do some work, been doing a lot of that lately on my time off but that's the life of a release engineer! Have a great night!

Where have I been?

Man, I haven't blogged since Tuedsay and it's Saturday! And I get mad when the bloggers I read don't blog every day! Well no one reads my blog and if they do its not like they are gonna be left hanging from the last post so I think they will live! I mean I'm not writing for LOST or anything! ;)

Rough week! Lots of work to do, Jake was not feeling well, oh and then last night we lost power and it didn't come back on until 5am this morning. Man it was cold in here! We had 2 comforters, a quilt and a blanket on the bed. I slept in sweatpants and a sweatshirt and SOCKS!!! You have to know that I cannot have anything on my feet when I sleep so this was really something!!! Yeah, this morning the thermostat said 55 but I have no idea if it was right or not because I'm not sure if it works on electricity or not! LOL! But I do know it was darn cold! We normally keep the house at about 69.

Lots to do today, I had to get up and bake brownies for the Winter Carnival at school, they are having a fund raiser for a boy who has a life threatening disease that is called ALD (well that's the short version) the long version I can't even say nevermind spell! Gotta drop the truck off for a new muffler, clean house, and start stripping wallpaper in the kitchen to paint! Now that we found out the stair tread wont be in for a month off to the next project! :)

Oh and more big news! My friend Cindy has two new kits up at! Woohoo! Check it out under Artist Cindy Simon! They are called Torino (in honor of the Olympics) and the other is Rebecca Rose (in honor of her beautiful little girl). Very fun kits!

So better go get showered so I'm actually ready when we have to go! Have a great weekend!

Happy Valentines Day!

I hope you are all sharing this day with someone you love! I made teacher gifts and a card for DH last night, yep very last minute because I realized I forgot those! I had everything else done weeks ago! ACK! And I also had to bake brownies for a party at the daycare because they decided at the last minute to have one! And I thought I was all prepared. So I'm going to make heart shaped pizza for dinner tonight. DH wanted to go out but like the over-priced roses that are out there the restaurants are also over priced on this holiday so I say we stay in! Plus the boys will love being included! It was either that or pink mashed potatoes with something slathered in Ah-So sauce so I vote for the homemade pizzas instead! LOL! I took photos of the boys wearing their red today so watch for some valentine layouts from shortly! Hopefully not as many as with THAT photo tho! ;)

Yippee, I went and bought some more digi kits today at the re-opening of the Shabby Shoppe. They have some wonderfully talented people over there and one of the kits I got was a Charity kit! How cool is that! Love that! I got 3 kits and some fun jewel elements that I am looking foward to playing with. It's funny now that I'm not forced to digi scrap I like doing it again! When I had to do it with specific stuff that was always too girly for me or for whatever reason it just seemed like too much work! I want this to be a hobby not work, I already have a job and one I get paid well for! ;) So now once the new CHA products hit the stores I'll be really happy! Oh and when my Home Equity Line financing goes thru! ;)

Hope you all have a wonderful day! Sending you Valentine hugs!

Blizzard is Over!

Lots of white stuff all over the ground but it happened on the weekend and I made it to work, there was school today, no delays and all is well! Well Michael is darn tired after plowing from 6:30am until midnight but he'll live! ;) Now that better be the last!!! Enough is Enough! Jeesh!!! That should be plenty for all the snowlovers out there right? Right! :) Comeon Spring!

The cyber crop at 123 was very successful! We got a few new members which was terrific! And they even came into the chatroom which was awesome! It's so fun to get to know new people! I got some stuff done but not everything I planned! I think the snow threw me off! I really was not happy with most of the stuff I did yesterday at all and I only got 3 layouts done all day! That is so not like me! But I'll blame it on the chatting! ;) Which is so much more fun anyway! So now to make up the prize packs and get those out in the mail this week.
I finally got my wooden letters for my scraproom altered! I have only had the things for like a year!!! I don't know why I was putting them off so bad they really weren't hard. Of course I think I was waiting for the perfect purple pattern paper but I finally just broke down and used some chatterbox I had in my room and now they are done and are sitting on my window sill. I think they look OK. Here is a photo:

Only three more weeks till the Croppin at the Cape and seeing Cindy, Andrea, Carol and Chris!! Woohoo!!! I can't wait!

A flipping foot of snow is headed our way! I so hope they are wrong! Yeah Rachael I know you love it! Well I do not! For those of you who don't already know I do not like winter at all, I would not live in New Hampshire if I had my way I would live in sunny Florida! My husband has my house torn apart and now will be gone all weekend plowing so will get nowhere on that and I have 4 house guests coming in less than 1 month! YIKES!!!
Oh and now to recap my day yesterday! Poor Jake, we started off the day saying he was going to school, well that all ended when he tried to get his shoes on! Which I told him wheh he was getting ready was never gonna happen! But what do I know? So then it was a trip to the peditrician who then tried to get whatever was under his nail out, oh well that didn't go over too well. So she made us another appointment with a podiatrist. OK that went even worse!! Poor kid! Had to have some really cold stuff sprayed on his toe to pre-numb him, he did not like this at all, was very shaken up and then came the three shots of novicane. OK I felt like the WORSE mother in the UNIVERSE putting him through all that. I could not console him at all. He was very upset and even bit his tongue hard enough to make it bleed he was so scared! I could have cried but I wanted to keep him calm so I tried to keep talking to him and get his mind off of it. He ended up having a 1/4" long splinter under his toenail! Nasty!!! So now that it's out they think he will feel much better and that maybe the toe isn't even broken afterall! That was probably what was causing all the pain!
We did finally get out to celebrate Michael's birthday too, went and had a great dinner at a great Prime Rib place and the night ended on a good note with cake at home! :)
Hope everyone had a wonderful Friday and an uneventful weekend! Over and Out!

Never a Dull Moment!

So another trip to the Hospital is in store I think! This time for Jake not me tho! I think he broke his big toe! I know they won't be able to do anything for it so maybe they won't make me waste my time and the insurance company's money with X-rays. But he's home from school because he can't get his shoe on. I'm telling you this is too much excitement for one week. It's also my honey's bday today! Happy Birthday Michael! Love you!

OK, so this is for my pal Rach, no that is not this year, not even close! It is 16 degrees and the butterflies are not even thinking about coming out here yet! I'll be lucky if I see signs of spring in April in NH! ;) That photo is from last year actually. But I'm glad you liked it. It is one of my favorites too!

Lots to do today, and a hair appointment before we go out for bday dinner tonight so no dilly dallying with the blog stuff! Sorry! I know, it's not like I'm writing anything exciting anway! So happy Thursday!

One month from today and I get to see Andrea, Chris and Carol!!! Woohoo!!!


Wednesday, February 8, 2006

Wednesday boring Wednesday!

After all the excitement that went on yesterday there is nothing good going on today so I'm just going to post a couple of my latest digi layouts. The first one is using some of Anita Stergiou's Grungy stuff. Oh and her Bullseye Stitches. Very fun stuff Anita! These are all available at Natural Designs in Scrapbooking.

And the next one is a mixmatch of things. Papers and the flower middle are from Mindy Terasawa's First Blossom's kit available at Sweet Shoppe Designs. The flower and zig zag stitching (which I colorized) are by Dani Mogstad and are available in the Eternal Hope kit available at Natural Designs in Scrapbooking.

So that's all folks! Have a great day! Cya tomorrow!

ERs are Quiet on Tuesday!

Well at least the one I went to this morning was! I walked in, was the only one in the waiting room, went right in and was out in 2 1/2 hours and that was with an EKG, Chest X-Ray and all kinds of blood work! Yep, thought I was having a heart attack! Had chest pain and pain in my left arm this morning and yesterday so decided to call the doc. It wasn't major pain but enough to scare me since it happened more than once. He sent me over to the ER and all the tests came back fine except for some muscle problem in my back! Weird that muscle problems in my back could cause chest and arm pain but heck I'll take it! :) At 39 I'm not ready for a heart problem!
So the coolest thing happened last night! We are doing a Cards for the Soldiers campaign over on You can see the details of the first round here: Well the first round had 350 cards and they were all gone in 2 hours!!! Amazing! last night I got an email from a soldier who received some of our cards from her fiance (she is in a different battalion than her fiance) and loved what we were doing. So much so that she asked if we would be willing to send cards to her battalion too! How cool is that! Very cool but we need more cards! So if you can get the word out to anyone I'd so appreciate it! Send all your scrappy friends over to the thread above to make handmade cards to send over to the troops PLEASE!!! Thanks a million!!!
OK, thats about all I can handle for one day! Have a great one!

Monday, February 6, 2006

Baby it's Cold Outside!

Back down to the 30's! Dang Groundhog! It snowed a bit this morning too! Yeah, I know Rachael you love it! pffffffffff! Come on Spring, fight the groundhog!!!

Michael ripped down part of the wall yesterday and got half the carpet off the stairs, I really need to photograph it so I can document the before and after! That will be the fun part! The messy house will be the not so fun part! ;) We picked the railings out and oh are they gonna look sweet! I'm so excited!

So am I the only person on the planet who didn't watch the Superbowl and hence did not see one commercial that everyone is talking about? I'm gonna have to watch a ton of TV this week to catch up! LOL! I keep hearing about the AmericaQuest one with the flies so I'm gonna really watch for that one! I don't watch much TV, only Lost and Idol so this is going to be tough!

I did a fun 3D page on Sat that used a ton of prima flowers, I am gonna do a digi page of it so I can use all those fun flowers of Christine Smith's this week! Gotta find the right photo for it! Am hoping to use one of the sponsor kits too so I can kill two birds ya know? ;)

I have to write my self-assessment this week for my review at work! Is this fun? NO! I am so not good at this thing! Any volunteers to write it for me? I'll send you chocolate, scrapbooking materials, whatever it takes! NO? Don't blame ya there! Well I better get to it! Have a great day!

Rain Rain Go Away!

Well I guess it could be worse, it could be the dreaded SNOW!!! But man, if it were snow we'd be burried! And at least it's washing away some of this white stuff! LOL! I can see grass on my yard now!
So the shopping trip was pretty uneventful, no luck on a futon, they cost about $850 so we know what we'll be spending at least but we did not find one we wanted. Also, no decision on the flooring yet because, no surprise here, we could not agree. I want Maple, Michael wants Red Oak. He thinks Maple is too light, well our house is so stinking dark I thought light flooring would be a great idea! Oh and we got paint samples, I love the colors, Michael thinks they are too bright, see a pattern here? Yep, we are opposites in every sense of the word!!! I did find a gorgeous bookshelf and chair I wanted for my office but of course that was not what we were shopping for so they stayed at the store! :(
I did some serious scrapping this weekend with the CHA samples, I brought 4 layouts and a card to the store yesterday and I did three more last night! I love when I can be productive! I did do pretty simple pages but I think people like that more than the really detailed layouts when they are looking at store samples, at least I hope so! Tomorrow I'll spend some time on my Digi Layouts for my February assignments.
Well off to do the cleaning and laundry I didn't do yesterday. Have a great day everyone!

Saturday, February 4, 2006

A Shopping I Will Go!

OK, I've posted all my samples I got done last night. I didn't do too bad, got 4 layouts and a card done in 3 hours! Now I'm off to shower and we are going to look for a futon, paint and hardwood flooring! Can't wait to see all the samples! And bonus, the boys are staying with my mom so it will be so easy! LOL! No telling them to get off stuff, or stay beside us or telling them we are almost done, etc. You know the drill if you have kids!
I also don't have to clean the house!!! Michael is going to start ripping a wall down so it's gonna make some serious dust so why bother. I will clean the bathrooms but that's it! So much nicer than spending 4 hours scrubbing! It's going to be a great day!!!
Happy Saturday everyone!

Friday, February 3, 2006

Finally Friday!

It's been a long week! Two really bad days but I made it thru them! After they were over I see they weren't that bad afterall. Just seemed bad at the time. I am so glad the weekend is here!
We are going to look at hardwood flooring tomorrow!! I am so excited! I have wanted hardwood for sooooo long! I think we are going to get bamboo. It's so cool! At least for the master bedroom, and maybe maple for the rest of the places I want, which is almost all of the downstairs except the kitchen and then the hallway upstairs and the stairs. We'll see when we see the stuff IRL. Also have decided on the kitchen and hallway paint colors I think, well I should say agreed since I had decided and just needed the nod from the other half! ;) I think he is the only man who cares! He says I put too many flowers up and that it looks too girly if he doesn't say something and since 3 men (2 boys actually) and only 1 woman lives in the house it shouldn't be that way! Now really who cares if it looks nice? I happen to like flowers!
I made a new desktop for my computer out of My favorite photo of my guys and Christine Smith's instructions and her 2 Souls kit. So I am publically thanking Christine for that great kit and those very easy instructions to do this! Christine's kit is available at Oh and if you want some flowers that look just like Prima's her "Passion for Petals" are too die for!!!
For everyone that knows me well, you've all seen that photo a million times, since I've scrapped it about 4 times! It's the one with the boys on Michael's lap and they are wearing the red shirts and sitting on the black couch. I know, time for a new photo! LOL! But guess what, you are gonna see that photo again cause my clipboard with it just got published!!! Woohoo! It will be in the Scrappin, Stampin, & Stationary April Issue!!!
Got some fun stuff from the LSS last night that she picked up at CHA! New Bazzill, Wild Asparagus, kaleidoscope, gorgeous giant ric rack, and some other new products that I can't remember the name of right now Sorry! But I'm gonna make some samples so I'll be sure to share in the 123-Scrap gallery hopefully tomorrow! ;)

OK gotta go do some work now! Happy Friday everyone! Happy Scrappin too! :)

Is it Friday Yet?

Yep, this week has stunk that bad! Yesterday big fight with DH, in the morning and the day kinda went downhill from there. Then this morning Josh forgot his backpack so I had to go all the way home to get it for him and that made me way late for work cause the traffic is much heavier the later it gets! Then all heck breaks at work today! So it's only noon time and it feels like it should be 5! Yikes! Good point is that I have to leave early for a neurologist appointment today so I won't have to deal with it much longer! :)
One more week till out big 2 year birthday bash at 123-Scrap. I've got to get crackin on my sketches and other things I've got planned! Our crops are so much fun and we usually have a great turn out so I hope this one is the same! We have some terrific prizes donated from a few people so the members should be happy!
Oh here is the highlight (well kind of) of my day yesterday during dinner conversation between myself and my 7 yo Joshua:
Josh: Mama don't eat the rice, it's too hot (in a softer voice and so are you)
Me: {in a shocked voice} What did you just say?
Josh: The rice is wicked hot and so are you!
Family: Bursts into a fit of laughter
Josh: It would have been much funnier if you didn't ask me to repeat it!
So while it was very nice of him to compliment me like that I'm left wondering why my 7yo knows what hot is! Yes I will do a scrapbook page about this one! Too bad I didn't think to get a photo of him with the plate of rice! LOL!
OK, break is over and it's still not Friday but I have to get back to work anyway! Have a great day! Oh and did you buy Cindy's kit yet? If not, go here: it's called Manhattan Loft!

Wednesday, February 1, 2006

Happy Hump Day!!!

What an exciting Wed! Well some of it happened yesterday but I already posted my blog updates so I get to talk about it today!!! My good friend Cindy Simon debuted her very first Digi Kit at! It's a great kit called Manhattan Loft. Congrats to Cindy and may your new venture in the digi world be very successful!
Second big news was that Sweet Shoppe Designs opened up today, two friends Rachael Giallongo and the afore mentioned Cindy Simon are on the Creative Team there!!! Go Cindy and Rachael! I went over to check the site out first thing and bought 5 kits! They have some awesome deals for their grand opening and some wonderful designers!!! And of course seeing Rachael's and Cindy's wonderful work didn't hurt to help me spend! ;)
So I'm off to finish downloading all my new stuff so I can do some digi pages! ;) Have a great day!
