Just OnE MoRE DaY . . .

Be sure to visit our shop and pick up our new Mini Kits and the new "Click" Pages created with the Mini Kits. They'll be on sale until tomorrow night for 20% don't miss the savings! Here are a few more "bootiful" samples from our Creative Team to whet your appetite:

I just have to tell you a little about this last layout. The "Bootiful" witch in the photo is a good friend of ours named Shelly. Shelly is also friends with RealRach, and apparently wanted to go on a recent trip that Rach took to California to hook up with some old TLC friends. Well, Shelly didn't make the trip in person, but "Flat Shelly" was there at every event (sb crops), tour, and meal that they enjoyed. *snicker* This layout really makes me laugh :) Rach, you're just too funny!

Yikes . . .

I let way too many days slip by since the last blog post. Annette and I have been busy revising and finalizing the project for the French Canadian client that I mentioned a couple of posts ago. I've also been busy creating some fun little designs that will be released later this week. If you've been to our website recently, you've seen much more than a sneak peek :) Here's an image showing you one of our new "Mini Dig-Ette-al Kits"--I know it's early, but I LOVE I thought I'd share that one here. They'll be released later this week, by the 20th at the latest (and sooner if I can get everything ready...but no promises there :)

It's sad to think the summer is almost over. The kids here go back to school next week......although I don't have any kids going back this year. Aaaaaaahhhhh...yes, I'm DONE with that part of parenthood. No more Parent/Teacher conferences!

Annette and I are both expecting new grandbabies soon...our families just keep growing! I really don't know how that happens. Neither of us are old enough to be "grandmas"....honest! *wink*

Ok...remember to go to Laura's blog and participate in her's always fun to get a clean house, get some scrapping done AND have a chance to win a prize. She also has a link to another challenge, and has done her layout for that challenge using our designs...really cute stuff, Laura!

Goooooood Monday Morning!

Good morning everyone :) Just a quick update on a couple of things for you today.

We're the guest designers for a challenge at Happy 2 Scrap. We provided a page sketch and Laura, the owner, is hosting a great little challenge! So, head on over and check it out. The challenge link is on the right side. Laura includes a great little requirement in her challenge...that you spend 15 minutes cleaning up your least favorite part of your house. *snicker* So, if you do the challenge, EVERYONE wins in some way or another. We all love clean houses, don't we?

Here's a copy of the sketch. I hope you'll take some time to make a layout (digi or papercraft) following the sketch and enter her challenge!

Also, I was notified last night by one of our customers that there was an error in the zip file for the 1280x1024 August Freebie Desktop calendar. That's been fixed now, so you can go download it again now. Sorry about that!

Annette and I are still working away on the project for the French Canadian Company...and yes, for those of you who asked, it will be a paper scrapping kit available through TVA. I'm not sure when they plan to release it, but we should have the artwork for the kit turned in by mid-week. We're working on two other projects for them that will be lots of fun too, so if you're in Quebec...keep your eyes open :)

Last Day to Save!

Don't forget that our "1/3 off" sale ends today. Be sure to visit the shop and save!

For those of you who know me, you know that I live in a LITTLE town in Utah. Today is the last day of our city's annual festival...and yes, it really is called "Wheat and Beet Days"-- oh stop laughing :) We have a big sugar factory here in town (it's not operating anymore), so the farmers grew a lot of sugar beets in the valley, and they still grow lots of wheat...thus the name of the celebration :) I know...many of you have had a good laugh over this, but it's a lot of fun, regardless of the snickers :P Our grandkids are all here to go to the parade with us this morning, and to the fireman's waterfight this afternoon. Of course, we'll hit the park and all of the booths and just enjoy an evening with the family. They end the night with a great fireworks show....and everyone except little Ambree loves them. She's TERRIFIED by fireworks so far. Maybe she'll like them better next year :)'s time to get cleaned up and enjoy the day's activities!

Yes, I'm a small town girl, and I love it :)
