Looking ahead, we have LOTS going on! Annette has THREE new Collections that she's working on. She'll have a sneak peek of those when the release gets closer.
We have some GREAT things planned for National Scrapbooking Day, so be sure to check our blog and website to join in the fun. We'll be having a scavenger hunt, giving away prizes, discounts, freebies and even some contests/challenges . . . so be sure to join us.
Also, as part of National Scrapbooking Day, I'll be teaching a class here in Utah at the Happiness is Scrapbooking Seminar. Unfortunately, Annette can't join me this time. I haven't "gone solo" for a long time, so it will be weird to teach without the "other Ette" :) The ladies that run this seminar are fantastic, and put so much work into it. If you're local, you should register and join us for a lot of fun. I'll be teaching on Saturday morning...and then hurrying home to oversee the NSD activities and contests on the website :)

Here's what they had to say on the MMS website about her project:
"Mary Ruth, CT Member over at Ettes & Company shared with us this darling idea using the new DUDE Template and DUDE Pack designs. She printed out the fun monsters onto t-shirt transfer paper and ironed the designs onto onsies. What a darling gift idea, Mary Ruth!!"

Go check out all of the new goodies in the shop! LOTS of stuff for the Tall, Dark & Handsome men in your life! No excuses for not scrapping those guy photos anymore!

If you haven't taken the plunge with My Memories Suite yet, now is a great time to buy it. You can still save 25% on the software using our link in the sidebar, and they are constantly adding to the designs available for you to use.
I was talking to one of the ladies that works for MMS the other day, and was asking her how I could get a photobook published that I am putting together for my son for graduation (I've been building the layouts in photoshop through the year.) Anyway, she told me that I can import my layouts into the program, and send it in for printing through them. Wooooo Hooooo...I've seen their photobooks, and they're beautiful. So, that's what I'll be doing.
So, there's the update for MMS. Watch for another blog post later this week -- I'll be adding another collection to the shop that is TOTALLY MASCULINE. We hope you're intrigued by the words "Tall, Dark & Handsome" :)

Today is my son's birthday...he turns 18! I thought I'd wish him a HAPPY BIRTHDAY and give you a sneak peek, all at one time! So...I created a layout using the collection that I'm just finishing up...nice and masculine, which fits him perfectly :) He's a big, tough football and lacrosse player, and is just an all-around great guy :) Happy Birthday, Jake!
I know, I should be happy (and I am for the most part). It's just kind of sad to think how quickly the time goes. He's my youngest child, and now he's all excited to go off to college and then on a mission for our church. *gulp* Enjoy your kids when they're little...they grow up too fast!
Annette's family is going through some changes, too. Her son is getting married tomorrow...that's her third to get married. So, she has an exciting, busy few days to look forward to.
So, after we're both finished being emotional with our families growing and changing...we'll get busy and release some new designs. We both have Dig-Ette-al Collections that will soon be ready to go in the shop. We'll post here as soon as we put them online.
