On The Go

Hey everyone! June has proved to be a busy, challenging month already. My Mom and Dad decided to come for a visit last week and we had a great time. My Mom, Kaylee, and I shopped until we dropped and Kaylee made out like a bandit! Her birthday was June 12th, so she was getting all sorts of fun stuff. On Kaylee's birthday, I took her to spend some of the money she had received and we had lunch at Applebee's, which has been a tradition with her. Then she got go ice skating and swimming with two of her buddies, Bryce and Brandon. I'm glad she has had a great time, but I'm ready for "Mom's taxi service" to slow down - hehe.

I had to take Robby to the airport this morning for a week long training, and we are getting ready to go on vacation and will be gone for nearly 2 weeks. So it doesn't appear that things will slow down anytime soon, but at least it's all fun stuff!

I have been able to get a little designing done and I have a new kit, Country Cousins out at both PPF and CLD. This kit and most of the store at PPF is 25% off through Monday night, and on Monday, my new releases (including this kit) will be 20% off at Color Line Design.

I also had a friend of mine create the most wonderful Creative Team forum for me that I am most excited about. She did a fantastic job and I think my Creative Team is loving it as well. It's really nice to have one place to go for all that. Thanks Catherine!!!! I'm planning on having a CT call when I get back from vacation and settled. I would like to add 3 to 4 more members - so be watching - if it's something you'd be interested in, I would love for you to apply.

I guess that's about it for now. I hope you all are having a great summer so far and I'll be back to post again after my vacation. I should have some photos to share with you then- hehe.

~til next time,

Getting some things completed - YEAH

Well, I finally completed my Summer Stroll kit and boy is it a biggie! It has 16 papers and 27 elements! I have posted a preview of the kit on the right side of my blog. It was a lot of fun and of course, in some of my fav colors. I hope you all will check it out!

I completed the cards for the book I was working on for Design Originals, and I'm finishing the clear album class sample for the class that Suzanne will be teaching at CHA. These have been a lot of fun to do, but I will be glad to have them turned in.

My parents are coming to visit us this Wednesday, and we are so excited about that! Papa (my Dad) takes the kids to the park and to does all sorts of fun stuff with them. They can't wait for him to be here. My Mom and I are planning a shopping day and I know I will really enjoy spending time with her especially since we don't get to see each other much since they moved to Kansas.

Zachary is now out of preschool for the summer and Kaylee's last day is next Thursday. I hope I can keep the entertained and keep them from fighting, which seems to be their favorite past time right now when they are together. They are great kids, but are at stages where they just don't play well together and it can be very trying on me, but this too shall pass, soon I hope.

I'm now also hard at work on my next kit. It will be a good one for those boy pages and has some teddy bears in it. I have so many ideas for kits that I want to do, I just can't create it all fast enough -hehe!

That's what is going on with me now, so . . .
~til next time,
