Lot's of Stuff....

Hello, My Friends!

Summer is winding down, (although it's getting really hot here now!)  Kirstin has already started her freshman year in college and Katie starts high school on 9/1.  Where did my summer go?!? 

Oh, yeah....

I was a little busy...

The first week in June, we were at the Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington, TX.

Katie graduated from 8th grade, and two hours later I was on a plane to Puerto Rico.

I had a few weeks off and celebrated Kirstin graduating from high school.

I then found myself in Chicago.

The next week, I was in PA.

The next week was Nashville, TN.

Then, Katie and I took off for Hawaii for three days.  And YES.  I did take a FULL day off!  No phone, no emails, no texts.  Ken texted me that morning and I insisted Katie call him back and tell him I was taking a day off!  ;)  (This is actually a big deal.  I even manage to work an hour or two on Christmas Day when the family is napping!)  {That's what happens when you LOVE your job!}  ;)

So, I guess I had an eventful summer.  ;)

This fall, I'll find myself in South Africa for ten days, Houston, TX for Sizzix, St. Louis, Ontario (California), Seattle might be all.  ;)

I hope you've all had a great summer.  :)


Did you know we are sponsoring the CPS Blog this week?  If you aren't familiar with this awesome blog, it's where a sketch by Tami is posted and then you get to see great examples by their design team and then you can play for a chance to win!  ;)

So, for fun, I created a card using the sketch.  Here's the sketch.....

And here's my card.....
For my card I used praise4Him, Thanks2You and type4background.  :) The patterned paper is by My Mind's Eye and the twine of course is from The Twinery.  :)  Oh, and the inks, well yeah, mine.  ;)  Didn't get the dies on this one, but I bet you'll be seeing more of the dies soon!  ;)

Big Happy Hugs!
