It's been a couple of weeks since my last post - so many things going on at home/work right now I just haven't had the time to do much in the way of scrapping or designing.
I'm sure you don't want to read about my troubles...so will skip all the gory details and fill you in quickly with my news. First of all, I'm about to lose a job I love! My company is closing their Pensacola branch - next week will be my last with them. Luckily I've managed to line up a job with an Allstate Insurance agency and hoping that I enjoy it as much as I enjoyed working for Leisure Tyme RV! My current boss has asked if I would be interested in becoming their website manager/graphic desgner...so if I can fit a few hours a week in around my new job then I'm going to give it a shot!
Hubby has just had surgery on his face to remove some skin cancers. We were expecting quite a simple procedure - similar to what he has done every six months to have the pre-cancerous growth frozen off. We knew that this time, because those growths had developed into squamous cell cancer, that he would have to go "under the knife". Unfortunately we weren't aware that these growths are kind of like icebergs...what you see on the surface is not what's actually underneath! So, he now has over 40 stitches in his face, along with a black eye and a lot of swelling. Luckily he's not in too much pain...and the swelling has gone down a bit today.
That's the main news....won't bore you with the rest! I did manage to fit in a little dsigning and have come up with a really nice kit called "Twilight Time" which is in shades of blue, lavender, aqua and soft brown (preview pic at top of this post). I've tried a couple of new techniques with this kit and I think you'll especially like the acrylic charms, the glitter splats and the chain border. For your freebie today I have a QP made using the new kit and you can download it here. Remember that as with all my new releases you can get this kit from my store at the special introductory price of only $2.00 - for a very limited time only!
On the subject of stores...I've opened a new store which has gifts for the scrapper! You can get anything from t-shirts to mugs and mousepads to tote bags and even a doggie t-shirt! I still have a lot of designs to get into the store, but do check it out! The link is on the left side of this page under Scrappin' Sooze Gifts or you can click here to visit.
Finally, for tonight, here are a couple of layouts I did using the new kit....the first one is my beautiful daughter, Julie (photo was taken a few years ago - she was about 17 here). The second layout shows my friend's grandson having his first swing!
