So Its been a tad nuts...

Things have been more than crazy lately. After going those wonderful days without the Internet and finally thinking I was all caught up, I blew the motherboard in my PC. YEAH!!!! So I had to get a new computer (I was sooo dying for a new one but not in this fashion) I find one that the guy at the store just tells me I HAVE to have. Downfall, its vista and I have heard so many horror stories. Either way, I get it home and have the hardest time adjusting to the new screen (its a 19 inch flat and I have spent the last 3 years with a small tube monitor). I get a new encasing for my old HD and YEAH!! All my stuff is saved and I can get to it all!

Well, I spend all this time for the last few days getting all the new stuff in the stores and re loading this computer with all my programs and what not. And finally I SEE LIGHT!! LMAO! The girls have been excellent lately. They get more rotten every day though. But thankfully no HUGE messes lately- They did however the other day figure out that mommy's hand lotion makes for a great gun. Its a push handle bottle and well- Obviously has great pressure. They were all playing in their room when they started giggling hysterically. Out of curiosity I went around the corner to peek at them not to scare or stop them cuz I wanted to see what was so funny. Well when i turned my head around the corner there stands roxy with the lotion bottle and presses the lever- SPLAT All over miss Stevie the lotion goes and they all are giggling like crazy. I hollar and see Ana turn to me all covered and the wall has streaks all over. The only one not smelling all melony is Roxy (Hmmm wonder who the culprit was) But the cleaning wasn't too bad, a few wipes with a cloth and the bath tub did the trick for the girls. Needless to say all the lotions have now been put in the linen closet LOL.

Okay well I guess I will share my new creations. Here are some of the things I managed to pull off my old HD and put into my shoppes in the past few days! And some layouts I created too! Boy it was nice to actually scrap for a change :)
Just in time for the upcoming July 4th celebrations and versatile enough for even non-holiday layouts. The layout is of my youngest when she was in the NICU.
Berry Sweet
A cute and yummy kit full of teddy bears and strawberries. The pic is of me and My middle daughter Miss Ana.
Fruit Punch
This is one of my favorite kits because I had so much fun creating it. Full of bright fruity colors its great for summertime and fun pics. The layout is of my eldest miss Roxy using a template by Chrissy W at Elemental Scraps.
OO and the new designers have been announced over at BTST! Each one is providing a unique style and some FAB designs! Most of everything has been marked 25% off or more in the store so go check em out!!!
And If I couldn't be done yet.. LMAO
Today I am Queen for the Day over at Digishoptalk.

Okay so I get things going to a speed and THINK I am doing good. And you know, I should really stop thinking!! I ended up without the Internet for a few days due to the WONDERFUL roofers that were working on the building next door. They broke my dish *Satellite User Here* and well, I had to wait for the right part and all the fun stuff. Now the timing couldn't have been any better since this was also the time I had just received the most AWESOMEST news ever!! I got accepted over at GottaPixel!!!! The ladies over there are so fantabulous is amazing. I am so very excited to be able to working with them as well as know that Stacey felt my addiction to the pixel was crazy enough. LOL

I have been going through a bit of a rough time at the moment, I find for sure find out more definitely about it on Wednesday. Of course then I will let you all know as well. Its just been super crazy and actually a bit of a damper on my spirits I will admit. But depending on what I find out Wednesday will decide my future feelings so to speak about the situation.

The girls have been good lately actually. Nothing too crazy, no bekfast in bed (thank goodness). We had a good fathers day over the weekend. We went to my dads and had a cookout, everyone played outside, the boys football, the kids tag and us girls just kinda took it all in. It was actually a really great quiet day. Very relaxing to say the least.

My dad went in for his check up on his pacemaker/defibrillator yesterday and everything is doing very well. All great news. So all in all everything has been on the up and up! KNOCKING ON WOOD!!!!

I had time since the last post to manage a few projects (4 new kits are screaming at me right now to get them packaged LOL) But I got Colies New Kit In My Garden and couldn't get anything going- My mojo was gone. Until it dawned on me. GET AWAY FROM THE PUTER GIRL!! So I did. I hit print and printed out her kit and me and the girls sat down with it and created a great project for them. I present the girls' altered garden. (SHHHH Don't tell anyone that I used their Easter bucket for a planter pot! LOL)

And Also I wanted to give you all the heads up that there is still time over at GottaPixel for their Gotta Grab It Event. Last time I checked there were over 50 products all marked at 1.00 each ready for you to build your own collab! Here Is My Mini that is available!

Until Next Time :)
