I found a beautiful layout and OMG, it's just so, so....amazing!

Wow - seriously, I went into the Flutter Expressions gallery and found some real treasures!! I actually went there looking for a layout of mine and saw this absolute gorgeous heartfelt layout that completely changed the direction of my post today.

Please take a look at this beautiful layout from kelseyll:

and here is the other half of this 2 pager:

Wow did you read that journaling?? It brought tears to my eyes. Wow, that kind of relationship takes 2 very strong women working together to make sure their daughter has a good life. How often do you hear about this kind of thing? Probably not often so think about it and smile - there are good people left in this world.

Lisa used the kit called The Hardest Part and the associated word bits to make this absolute gorgeousness. Here's a pic of the kit and the image is linked:

Next one I found (oh, imagine that!) is my Little Charmer layout:

I had such a great time making this layout because it was really a lot of fun. The layout came together really quick and it was a fun kit to work with. There are a lot of things that I could've used in the kit and I chose those particular ones and am happy I did because it's one my favorites. This was done using the kit from Katherine called Say What!? - check it out here:

For those of you who love papers and some really cool, different ones - THIS is the kit for you - these are my all time favorite papers from her. If you are like me and like to get crazy sometimes, this kit has crazy :)

Check it out at the Sunshine Studio Scraps store, you won't be sorry!! I'll be back soon with some more awesome layouts from the gallery!

So you want one of those siggies like the cool kids have?

Well, I can let you in on a little secret, actually two :)

1.) I know how and where you can get one
2.) I know how to get it set up so you can link your blog, FB, galleries and anything else to it

Cool, right??

So here is the scoop - I just happen to be on the creative team for Anna at Scrap-A-Holic Designs and besides having super cool templates for layouts, she's got super cool siggie templates! Check them out:

Pretty awesome, huh? Doesn't get easier than this! You can grab them HERE.

Once you grab them, head on over to the DigiRidoo forum and see Marianne's post to learn how to link your new siggie to all the places you want people to see like your blog, your gallery and your Facebook.

As my kids would say, you'll be "too cool for school" now ;)

I'd love to see your new siggies so please link me to them so I can check them out - have a great day!!

Whew ~ That was a lot of shopping!

WOWIE! I have to tell you guys - I'm glad it's over. I really am. It's like Christmas. I can't wait until it gets here then the second it's over I'm packing up the tree, taking all the decorations down. It's like ok, I'm done - let's move on. I'm exhausted from trying to keep track of what shop had what sales going on and for what days and what times. UGH - I saw stores that had giant project management sheets of what event was when!

If I tried to post everything I bought I'd be here for 3 weeks. Seriously. I'm NOT kidding and it's not because I don't know how to post that stuff. I'll be honest with you - I have no idea what the heck I bought!! OK, there it is, out in the open. I don't know. I have no flipping idea. I would have to print a ream of account history from Paypal to tell you. I was just buying and buying! I wouldn't even be able to tell you what I bought because I have no idea what I bought. In fact, tonight I did a LO for one of my CTs and I used a kit I bought when I first started!! Now, you would think that if I bought a crap load of new kits I'd use one of those. No. Not me. Can't make heads or tails of the downloads folder. Oh well.

Maybe I should have asked for a professional organizer for Mother's Day. I'd sit her in front of my PC and put that chick to work.

Oh so back to my LO - OMG, who needed a new kit??? Not this girl!! It came out FABULOUS - might be my favorite so far but I can't show you because it's a template from the most awesomest Cintia Tavares (OMG - *LOVE* *LOVE* *LOVE* her templates!!!) and it's not coming out until this week so you'll have to wait until the 13th for me to show you but I will warn all you "super cool template loving girls" out there right now - get your PayPal passwords ready bc Cintia rocked this new set!!! Perfect for scrapping the summer parties coming!!!!

Stay tuned and you'll see for yourself that I'm no trash talker ;)

So what did you buy?? I want to torture myself seeing your lists of things you bought so I can be annoyed that I didn't buy that too so please torture me and let me know ;)

Oh wait - OMG!! I think I bought some blog wear at After 5!! Crap, God only knows when I'll find that ....

Woo-hoo I won a super cool template!

Those of you who know me know how I just get giddy about templates (of course that is only if there are not in awful colors like turquoise and brown/black or some other God awful looking mess). So I found THIS post on DST and made a comment and won the template I really, really wanted! Woo-hoo, I got #1! Check it out:

So for those of you who would like to win too - go to that post above and make your comments but there is another chance to win and a freebie template on Agnieszka's BLOG!

Go girls go!!
