OKAY - WOW. So June ended up being a ROLLER COASTER of a month. Totally a bad month all around. So needless to say I've not been in the mood to blog. BUT things are looking up. July looks to be a good month. So far so good anyway! I am now almost 6 weeks away from a new little one! GETTING so excited about that! Kids are doing well. Tanner turned 6 July 1st. WOW - where has the time gone? can't believe he's 6 already! Derrik is almost taller than me now at age 10 and Hayden my 8 year old is soon to be 9 and is the smartest thing ever! I still can't beat him at chess! LOL! I guess I need to practice more!

So lots happening! I made the design team for JULIE BILLINGSLEY! I AM SO stoked about this! She sells her AWESOME digital designs at THE Sweet Shoppe. I am just thrilled to be on her team!!!
Here is a layout I did this past week using her NEW alphas that were released today! AND if you buy them today (Saturday) you get 20% off!! Get all 3 of the alphas and you get about 40% off! That's a great deal!! This layout is also using her AMAZING kit Carnival Thrills!!

If you are into digital and need a challenge every now and then you ought to look into the fun and fab challenges at The Sweet Shoppe! Plus if you do challenges you get a discount at the shoppe there!! It's awesome! The above layout was for the July Portfolio Challenge #24. To scraplift or be inspired by a layout from Candice Greenway's fab gallery! I created a template based off a few of her layouts and went to town! And just for fun you can have the template I created! It's not labeled and it's rough but it will give you the general design for adding tons of photos and having a blast with embellies!
You can download the following template HERE:

AND here is another template for you today!! Freebie Template #15! You can get 1-14 by scrolling through past posts.
