Mousescrappers Blog Hop!

Hey everyone  :)

So each month my favorite place, Mousescrappers, has a design challenge and blog hop. This month I participated in both. Yippie!!!! Who doesn't love a blog hop, right!

Here is a preview of the kit that a number of designers completed.


I took a sneak peak at the designs and they are awesome! And this kit is only $3.00!!!! You can pick it up here. The money supports the Mousescrappers community, and keeps the forums running. You can also check out the past 2 kits, and grab them as well. I purchased all 3, and have already used them on a number of layouts.

Several of us designers are part of the blog hop, and giving some awesome freebies to match this months kit. I did a full cardstock set.


Next up is http://www.artistsyldesign.com/ and if you get lost along the way, here is the entire list.

Wicked Storm

We had a wicked storm yesterday. It was the remnants of that hurricane that was down in the gulf. I took some pics I thought I would share here. One was even featured on the news early this morning (too bad I was sleeping and missed it LOL) But they did email me and tell me about it.




The clouds were so low and dark. It was freaky! And we had gusts up to 70mph, which took out a few garage cans and a small tree.



My husband is a fire fighter, and he was working. When our power went out I went up there (gotta love generators) and hung out with the guys. We got power back around 9pm last night..... thankfully.

There was no damage to any of the homes either, no spoiled food, etc. It was all pretty quick, and progress energy did a great job getting the power back on.

What happened?

Ok, so for 3 years now I've had a blog here. I don't know what happened to it, but 2 years worth of posts are gone (remember, for a year I was over at Wordpress)

Anyway, I am back  :-)   Yay! Do I still have readers? LOL. According to my stats I do, so I guess that's good news.

I took a nice, long, 8 month hiatus. Don't worry, i'll spare you the details. I even stopped scrapping *gasp*. It was a looooong 8 months! The good news is that, like I said, I am back. I am scrapping again, and even designing. I just opened a new store at my most favoritest place Mousescrappers! (Holy crap, they have a store now! Exciting! I know right!) So of course i'll be blogging about my new stuff. In other news, and bloggings (is that even a word?) i'll also discuss hot topics like how I work from home for AAA, and how I mystery shop (yes, really- I get paid to shop!) You may also hear about my daughter, who has Cerebral Palsy, my bi-polar, and my Gluten Free diet. Its a mish-mash of everything!
