BUSTIN' my buttons!

Oh I am just SO proud of robhay! Her layout "Spring Flowers and Ladybugs" was chosen Layout of the Day yesterday at 3Scrapateers!

I chose the Layouts of the Day for a number of months at 3Scraps, and let me tell ya, it takes something special to CATCH the eye in the gallery because of all the incredible art there. Robhay's layout did just that, and I am so very, very proud that she used my kit!

Of course, ALL the layouts were awesome - I just keep going back to them and looking at each one over and over. My good friend the Dude told me many times that there is nothing like the thrill of seeing layouts done with your designs. And he's right! AGAIN! Dang..I hate it when he is so RIGHT all the time! LOL But 'tis's a thrill like nothing else...I gotta admit.

THANK YOU to each and everyone of you who took the time to post layouts. They mean SO much to me! Your posting bonuses (the second half of the kit) will be there very shortly by Private Message.

I hope you'll take the time to help me congratulate Robyn by visiting her gallery and leaving a HUGE dose of lovin' for her wonderful layout! Visit HERE

THANK YOU to everyone!!

A great big THANK YOU to everyone who joined me last night at the Half-n-Half chat! It was so good to see some old friends, and meet lots of new ones! And another HUGE thank you to Linda and the Dude. Let me tell ya... they are a RIOT and every chat room they show up in just RAWKS. I was so honored they joined mine! LUB you guys!

The FULL kit of Call Me Pink & Black is in the store now - and it's HUGE. If you missed it during the HnH week, you can pick it up HERE
Linda and Dude are SO right - blogs are FUN! I can't wait to add more, but I must beg everyone's patience because I freely admit I'm an html dummy. LOL Actually, I have two very talented GEEKETTE daughters who make their livings doing this kind of stuff, so I've never had to learn it, but I'm enjoying stumbling along.

My Half-N-Half Kit is coming!

Well, I'm pretty excited :) Thursday night at 10:00 pm CST I'll launch my Half N Half kit at 3Scrapateers! Not to give any secrets away - but if you absolutely LOVE pink and bling, this kit is for you!

How do HnH's work? Well, you buy half the kit at a BARGAIN price and post a layout using those pieces in the special gallery set up just for my HnH. At the end of the week, I send you the OTHER half free! What a deal!!!

Oh... also... I have had a LOT of fun making freebies that coordinate with my kit, and they'll be posted HERE for the taking! I think you'll really like them.

So stay tuned... This blog will be updated Friday with all the details, links to post your layouts AND some fab freebies :) See you then!
