It is Good Friday here -- so thought I would give freebie

OK, I have been having tons of fun playing with the overlays by AmyJo Smith @ TDC (click here to visit her store - her overlays are good for commercial use) and well, it is officially good friday here in NB, so I thought I would post a freebie for all. Not sure how long I will keep it up -- but at least until after Easter is over anyways :) (Happy Easter)

If you want to see an upclose preview to see the textures, click here

Sorry -- this freebie is no longer available -- soon to a store near you!

OOPs wanted to say thanks

Wanted to say thanks as well to all your advice on the co-sleeping thing. Oh, why is she growing up so fast -- does anyone have a magic pill to keep her little forever ;)

Is it Friday yet?

Thursdays I think are the worst for me -- so close to Friday, but not yet there. I do like them though because Elizabeth (elane) at SOTB organizes the FAB50 Sale (where a lot of designer's put a new kit and old kit at 50% off for the day) and then she is the hostess of the crop @ 10pm EST. For more info on that, click here

Tonight, she also has Hip Hop Bingo! Sounds like so much fun -- a lot designers put their Easter kit on Sale 50% in conjunction with this and have donated one of the kits as prizes! I really don't know what we would do without Elizabeth - she is absolutely amazing and donates so much of her time to all of us at SOTB -- I know she has helped me out A LOT!

Check out her ad, she used my Kit for it! Wooohoo!

Hip Hop (Easter) Chat Room Bingo
Thursday, April 13th
8PM - 10PM Eastern
You will receive your bingo card upon arrival in the chat room.
Lots of FUN!!! Come play along and win FABULOUS PRIZES!!!
Hope to see you there!

Totally not related to scrapping

OK, this is so not related to scrapping, but I thought I would get it out there. Is there anyone reading who is a co-sleeper with their child? I am still co-sleeping with Cassidy -- she just turned two. We have her crib butted up against out bed and open so she sleeps right beside me (usually on me). This was a step since she was totally in our bed until probably 6 months ago. Anyways, hubby loves co-sleeping, but we started talking -- I am gonna have to take the leap sometime and get her in her own bed. I think it will be more trauma to me then her -- but there are other things I need to kick the habbit of for her first i think (she still takes a bottle! and pacifier). So, I think my order of priority will be 1) Bottle has to go 2) She need to be in her own bed/room 3) Pacifier . I am thinking, maybe I should scrap this so I have the conviction to follow through -- or maybe I need to create a I love co-sleeping kit lol

New Spoltight - mcardall - Outside

OK, I haven't spotlighted this scrapper before, because I have been hiding her to myself lol. Honestly, I couldn't just pick out LO that catches my eye -- she continuously produces LOs that leave me in awe. There are only a few rectangle scrappers that do that to me with every layout (dawneephay, novita, Rachael G -- the last two were on my CT for a short time and I was in HEAVEN -- now if I can only convince dawneephay and Meredith -- evil grin -- some day -- even if for a short time like novita and Rachael lol)

Anyways, I am chattering too much, back to the LO. I love this photo -- it is totally not posed, something that anyone can take. Sometimes, I find I love photos, but I know that the average scrappers don't have 100s of professional photos -- anyways, here is a GORGEOUS shot that anyone can capture! The kit she used is PERFECT for the photo, I love this kit. The journaling is GREAT, the title awesome -- everything is so fun! Totally matches the pic -- fun fun fun and CUTE.
