The past couple of days my email account has been quiet...as in, I've gotten no emails from anyone at all and it's safe to say that that is not the norm. It seems that my Verizon account is breaking ties with Yahoo and throughout the process of switching strictly to Verizon I am unable to access any emails that I would have recieved starting March 29th. So, if you have sent me an email within the past few days please know that I have not recieved it but hopefully I'll be able to get back into my account shortly. If that is not the case I'm researching setting up a new email account. Talk about a pain! All my contacts and log-ins for my DT's are in my email account so I'm feeling a bit lost! If you really need to get in touch with me please give a call or leave a comment here or on Facebook.
This month I have the following layout in Creating Keepsakes magazine...I had another one in last month's publication and I have to admit, it's kind of fun seeing my pages in print! I don't think I'll ever get tired of that little thrill! Creating Keepsakes has always been my favorite publication too so it makes it all the more sweeter to have them showing me some recognition.
I have the following layout published in this month's issue of Scrapstreet (a first for me) which can be found and viewed in it's entirety here. Stacey Michaud sent me an email awhile back asking if I'd be able to submit something and of course I said yes!
Check out the sneak peek of Mosh Posh's April kit! I've been playing with it here the past couple of days and am loving it! The mix of bright colors and fun designs are sure to delight! There are tons of delicious add-ons available this month too so be sure to check those out once available too. Stay tuned for the full reveal! I absolutely cannot wait to share my layouts with you!
It was a busy weekend here...two birthday parties in two days' time. The first one on Saturday was Zoey's good friend Ruby's party and the one on Sunday was a classmate's party and was a Star Wars/Bowling birthday party. It was Zoey's first time bowling and she had a blast. Last night Zoey painted her bread that we then used to make her sandwich for her lunch at school today. Pretty easy and fun to do...all you do is add a drop of food coloring to water and use a clean, never before used paint brush or a Q-tip. We made it even more fun by then cutting out the sandwich in the shape of a flower by using an over-sized cookie cutter. Looking forward to Easter break coming up soon...Grandma is coming to visit! Hooray!
Thought I'd quick share my Petaloo layouts for this month. The layout above is of my good friend and her daughter (title is from the perspective of her daughter)...the blooms are the fun Mulberry Street Embossed Daisies by Petaloo. I love them and they have so many colors available!
The blooms that I used on the above layout of Zoey are the beautiful Mulberry Street Wild Roses. Having so much fun getting to play with Petaloo's many flowers and embellishments.
Sharing these a bit late but that's alright. Things have been so busy and I'm in the middle of a book that I love which means that I choose reading over blogging when it comes to any "me time" that I might have. The book is The Actor and the Housewife by Shannon Hale and it has had me laughing huge belly laughs out loud, giggling like a school girl and crying steady and silent tears that I may as well just leave on my cheeks as more tears are sure to follow. I was totally counting on this being a fun, fluff read, and in a way it totally is, but instead of skimming over pages at an extreme pace (which I sometimes do when enjoying those easy reads) I've been savoring and enjoying every little word of this book. I love the style in which this book was written, it reminds me a bit of the children's book Uncle Wiggly's Storybook in how the chapters are titled...if you've read any of the Uncle Wiggly Tales and then read this book you'll get what I am saying. In Uncle Wiggly a chapter will end and a new one will start like "And if the window curtain doesn't roll up so fast that it flies to the top of the ceiling, taking the goldfish with it, you shall next hear about Uncle Wiggly and the Lion." A chapter in The Actor and the Housewife will begin like this "In which two worlds collide, taxis are not readily available, and no one learns a helpful moral." I don't know, perhaps I need to get out more...but I seem to see a connection between the two.
