Just Uploaded to the Store....

Two new paper packs ~ 'The Basics'

Lightly grungy & crinkled dotted & solid papers ~

Some cleaner gingham & striped papers ~

And I realized something while adding these to the store ~ I designed my website on my old PC which has a lower screen resolution {800X600} and uploaded these latest items using my new laptop, which has a higher resolution. Now all the previews in the store look too small. I'm thinking I have to re-do the previews to make them larger & better to view on computers with higher resolutions. I know what I'll be doing next weekend!! I'm back to work today **sigh** so must go do my hair & make-up & leave the girls their "To Do" List. Have a great day!! ;)

It's Been Much Too Long....

since I've sat down to the computer & scrapped some layouts. So that's what I've done the past 2 days. I was just itching to scrap the pictures of our trip to San Diego & still have many more to go. I've been bringing so much work home, I haven't had any time what so ever for scrapping. And I'm not looking forward to Monday morning {after a whole week off} when I get all those screaming phone calls of "Where is my door design!!??" I will not think about that this weekend, this week is all about me & my family, and the 5 layouts I managed to get done ~

Happy 4th!!

Yes, I'm a day early, but I may not want to Blog tomorrow. I'm not quite sure what we'll be doing tomorrow since it's so hot here in the desert. The high is expected to be about 110, so we may be staying inside or by the pool most of the day. We haven't decided yet if we're going to go out for the fireworks. Anywhere you go, you have to get there at least 3 hours before the show & it's tough to sit in 110 degree weather for 3 hours waiting for a 1/2 hour show.

Hubby & I just got back from a 2 day stay in San Diego. My MIL rented a house in Vista CA, about 10 miles from the shore & paid for us to drive out for a couple days at the beach. We had so much fun. The first day (Monday) the weather was perfect ~ according to locals a "hot" 90 degrees! LOL To us Arizonans it was nice & cool. The water was cold at first, but not too bad once you were in. Hubby boogie boarded the entire 3 hours we were there & was pretty sore when we got home. The girls did a little boarding, but we mostly played in the waves. The second day (Tuesday) it was cloudy & the waves were HUGE! Perfect for boarding & playing, but very cold!! We played for another 3 or so hours then headed back to the house to pack for the drive home. It was a nice mini vacation. I actually stretched it out for the whole week!! I deserve it!
And now because you actually read this far ~ a couple new items. In the store a new paper pack ~ 'Land of the Free' which will be 1/2 off until 7/8 only $1.50!!!

And to co-ordinate with the paper pack an element pack freebie!! This will be available until 7/8, then it will be moved to the store ~

{Thank you for your interest in my freebie, but this download is no longer available.}

Have a safe & fun Fourth for those who celebrate, & for those who don't, have fun anyway!!
