July 1st, already!?!

July 1, 2006

Seriously, where does the time go? I feel like I lost all of April, May, and June in a haze. I can’t believe Joel’s been working at his new job for 3 months, and we’ve been sharing a car for 3 months, and my Mom’s been diagnosed for 3 months. It’s been a rough 3 months, but honestly, I’m really starting to count my blessings again. I have moments where I think I’m going to have a panic attack, bill day is one of those, but I’m having alot of fun too!

A dear friend has a big TOOT and I’m so happy for her, Tin, I’m thinking about you chica, miss you OOOdles!!

Is anyone anxiously awaiting the opening of Plain Digital Wrapper today? It seem Holly McCaig’s got herself a new adventure, and since I’m a hype junking, her constant drops of who’s joining in the new store has peeked my interest. It seems like today’s a big day all over the digi world, with the launch of Maya’s Studio Girls store, bringing together some of the absolute best designers out there, wow! And Dani B’s Digital Graphiti, I know what I’m saving up for, wowzer.

Dani Mogstad released the new products today at Design By Dani. And her new newsletter too, did you see my smiling face in there, so exciting. And the Dani’s Girls have begun a new adventure of our own, a Creative Team Blog, Girl Talk
I started us off on the first challenge today, an element challenge, and here’s the kicker, participants will be eligible to win a GC from the store for every challenge they participate in. I’m excited to see where this goes, there is so much energy in this team, I’m sure it will be lots of fun!

Here’s my layout I did for the challenge.
Using Dani and Kimberly Giarusso’s new Yankee Doodle Candy released today, as well as an arrow from Dani’s Get The Point Pack and a paper tear from Cabana Boy. The glitter firework’s are a freebie from the newsletter!

And I finally have a layout to share for Karen as well. Her Funky Doodles line of paper packs and doodles is so awesome!!
The papers are Funky Doodles for Him, and I colored in the doodles using colors from the papers. That is an actual font, not just stamps or pngs!! You can get it in Karen’s shop at SBB too (click Karen’s blinkie to take you there). I’m a pretty uncluttered scrapper, and doodling in real life is beyond me, so I’m stepping out of my box a bit lately, and Karen’s stuff will definitely push me, I played around with those doodles for days, and I’m pretty happy with how they turned out. Paper Tear by Steph Krush from Digital Paper Tearing.

Joel’s at work today, and this morning I got a call from his new(ly discovered) half sister, she seemed kinda nervous, but very neat. His Dad is talking about coming to visit us soon. I think Joel might be a little freaked by the whole prospect, but he’s also very greatful that they sought him out.

I had to cancel HBO and Encore yesterday, as our promo was over and couldn’t justify the $20 a month expense, and now I’m kinda bummed. How am I going to watch Big Love when it comes back, maybe I’ll get in on another promo in enough time, you’ll have to keep me posted as to when it’s starting again.

Well, I’ve got to get these layouts into some galleries and then JT and I are walking to the video store to return movies. Have a great weekend!!

    I was just thinking the same thing about June being gone! I did some major shopping damage with all the new kits and things coming out and haven’t even been able to see PDW yet. Your pages are so super cool! I just love your tears – gotta let me know how you’re doing them. 🙂 Love all those arrows too! 🙂

    Noooooo HBO????? I hope a promo comes back soon and in time for Big love! Sounds like things are going better for you and I did see your smiling face on the flower!! I LOVE your LOs you’ve done so far with her stuff! She is so lucky to have you on her team! I need to go check out the new sites.. though afraid to also since it usually involves money! LOL

    I love your awesome fun layouts! You are just oozing layout inspiration, girlie! Keep ’em coming!

    You know, I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by either. I think and pray for you often and hope the rest of the year is a fairly uneventful one for you and your family (((hugs)))

    I have checked out the new sites, but then I ended up dropping a little bit o’ money at two “old” stores within the past week, courtesy of tha man! LOL

    Hey Tania, I love your layout with Karen’s stuff!! love that face JT’s got on… (I updated my blog so you can see mine ;o) )
    This has been a hard year for you, I hope the rest of the year is better ((hugs)). I think it is kinda exciting about Joel’s family – scary but exciting…….I wonder if he has any personality traits like his Dad – you know the kind of things like the way he laughs or taps his fingers when hes nervous – its kinda strange not knowing who you are like I guess.
