Here are 2 layouts I created using a wonderful kit by ChrissyW Digital
This is a wonderful kit, seriously, if you don't have it get it! She was kind enough to pass out a few freebies on her facebook page to a few people she would pick out of those that had commented. I am sooo very thankful for this freebie as it really is an amazing kit!
Please know that I did use a word-art element from digiVickie for the first Layout and A tied ribbon tag on the second layout made by InspiredbyDominic Designs

You should see more from me done with this kit, I LOVE it!

I'm Back

Yes, I have been away for nearly a year but I'm back once again and do not plan on leaving any of you!
While I was gone we purchased a new home for our family:  
We had been trying to figure out a way to do this for a long time and in April we had our chance and we took it! It's been a crazy ride since then, This home was a foreclosure and needed a lot of love. Here are the photos from when we first got it.

So far we have done quite a bit of work but this summer we plan on doing a lot more and when that work is completed I will gladly share the photos from that.
We also had a lot going on in July, I got a second job and we celebrated my oldest son's 4th birthday in the new house despite the fact we didn't have anything in it really. With the second job I hardly was home and it was worst these last 2 months. So December 13th was my last day on the job for one of them, I am now only working 2 days a week and hope to scrap a lot more than i have been.
My boys needed me home more and i needed to be out of the house less so since i'll still be making the same amount I went with it.
If you are a designer and need some ct help just let me know. I hope to start designing again here in the next few months.
I hope you enjoy the layouts I am sure to start posting shortly. Also be on the lookout for freebies!!! I love to give out freebies!

Two New layouts to share and a great freebie!

So between all of the chaos at work while my boss was away playing in Las Vegas for 4 days, the "normal" chaos at my house along with the crazy schedule's I finally found some time to create 2 layouts.. well one layout and one desk-topper for March.
You can get this kit at her store with Scrapity-Doo-Dah.

This kit is Awesome! I love the colors and the artsy style to it. It allows you to use this kit for all kinds of events, seasons, themes and much more.

On a personal note: I am still setting up my computer and getting things set up but as you can see from my march desktopper I hope to create a few things in the month ahead. 
I'll be celebrating the 1st birthday for my youngest little boy, Dawson. We aren't sure what the theme will be or the colors but once i have that figured out you'll most likely see bits and pieces of things such as invites and such. I would like to have it someplace that is kid friendly and especially baby friendly.. and out of the rain.
As for now though I'll leave you with a little goodie. Hopefully i'll find the time to post again tomorrow so keep an eye out!

Long time and lots to tell you about!

I know it has been an exceptionally long time since I have been on here and posted a single thing but there has been lots going on. As I last told you all, I got my alcohol server permit. I am still a cook at the VFW near me and I have been waiting tables on Saturday while bingo is going on as well as when needed for Sunday nights. Later this month I will be getting to bartend. My little man is now 10 months and my big boy is almost 4 (this July) No plans in the foreseeable near future for any new additions to our family. We hope that by this time next year we are in a different home than we are in now, one with more room for the kids to run and play. Hubby got a promotion and is now the head bartender at the sushi place where he works. Sadly my Dell computer broke the other day so I now have a new Samsung that I am setting up. I am still currently waiting for photoshop cs4 or cs5 to be installed on it. I now have a Wacom Bamboo pad that I have never worked with, I just got it so I will be trying to set it up and play with it soon. I hope to have a lot of new things in store for you here very, very soon. For all of you who have the Hallmark Card program I will be sharing some of the cards that I have made with it.

If there is anything that you would like to see specifically from me please, please, please don't hesitate to let me know.  Just comment on the post or send me an email, I would truly love to hear from all of you.
