Super Secret Surprise Revealed!!!

Surprise! See over there --->

On the right where I list my creative teams?  There's a new blinkie there!  For the month of October, I was part of a super team of ladies working to create the sample layouts for the 2012 Log Your Memory Challenge book, and today we get to spill the beans on our involvement.

I have been a part of LYM for the past year, and discovered the Logbook, challenges, and sight in about July 2009.  I can't even remember how I found my way to the website, but I loved the idea of capturing real, everyday moments.  That's ultimately why I remember the everyday!

I can't reveal the pages I made for the Logbook yet, but I do have a page I made for next week's challenge (Week 46).  I won't mention that I scrambled to put it together Saturday night, thinking I was late posting it as they are due on Thursdays, only to find that week 46 is NEXT week, not this week.  Not sure how I pulled that off, since the calendar I write all my scrap deadlines in was published by LYM and has the weeks number.  But in the end it worked out! I was ahead of schedule this week, and get to share a page with this fantastic announcement!

Kick It!

Ok, I've just earned a big ol' FAIL on my blog...I set this post up Thursday, and then forgot to post it! So here's a little bit about Isabel's release from last weekend...a few days later than intended!

Crisdam Designs has a new kit today called Kick It.  I used to play soccer as a kid and this kit brought me right back to those days. I decided to leave myself out of the picture (literally and figurativly) for this page and focus instead on my soccer playing dog.

She would rather chase the soccer ball than a tennis ball and has "loved" this one so long that it can't hold air anymore. But if she can find someone to kick the ball for her, she is in heaven. It's funny, I had never seen a dog do this until shortly before we picked Stella out. There was a dog who lived with Stella's mom that did the same thing...this dog would actually drop the ball repeatedly at your feet until you played with her.  Still makes me think of that dog whenever I watch our Stella nose the ball around by herself.

No more new releases for my designers this weekend, BUT I have some shopping to do! I have wish lists set up at all my favorite shops, but still have to whittle them down to a manageable amount (both $$-wise and time-wise) because time and money are valuable resources! Maybe I'll come back and show off my purchases later...whenever I'm able to make up my mind!

DSD Man Oh Man!

I love everything about DSD (Digi Scrapbooking Day)! From the games, to the sales, to the freebies and bloghops, there is so much going on this weekend!

Danyale's new goodies released today. She has 2 new items in her shop at TDC, a revamp of Imperfectly Neutral, and a gorgeous full kit, Hope Chest.
Hope Chest Kit

Here's a preview of Hope Chest, which I haven't had time to play with yet, but I am drooling over. I have some great ideas for this one if I can find the time!
ImPerfectly Neutral Grab Bag

This grab bag is a great addition to your scrap stash. I know there are times I look for a basic, neutral, go with anything alpha, and often find myself using these.  The addition of papers and paper flowers makes this a great go to pack.
I used only bits from Imperfectly Neutral to make this page because I wanted to show that using only neutrals on a page can really make the photos stand out. These are my little creatures and the neighbors just a few days ago on Halloween. It's almost like we coordinated to all wear red and black!

I'll be back tomorrow with the goodies that Isabel (Crisdam Designs) has coming out for this DSD weekend.
