Wow! I've been on leave from designing for a few months so I could prepare for several things going on in my personal life. First, I started a new job after leaving HP 10 years ago to be a stay(work)-at-home-mom. My boys are all "older" now, the youngest will be starting his senior year in high school this fall. I can hardly believe it! But my new job is going well and I think I have a pretty good handle on things.
My oldest son Joey just graduated from the University of the Pacific with a BA in Psychology. He was invited to join Phi Beta Kappa, the oldest Liberal Arts Honors Society in the US, dating back to 1776. Plus he was magna cum laude. So proud of him! He'll soon leave for Argentina to teach English for several months, then (hopefully) will be accepted into grad school once he returns.
Here's a photo of me squeezing the life out of him. Love the expression on his face, but he's used to me by now, really he is.
Okay, enough personal stuff... here's the latest on the digi-scrapping front. To kick-off my return, both my stores are on sale at 35% off for the entire month of July! You won't want to miss this great savings. (I noticed Scrapbird is not marked down yet as I type this, but it should be soon.) Find my goodies right here:
I do have an exclusive Memory Lane sampler/freebie coming out in the next DSS newsletter. If you're not yet signed up to receive the newsletter, you can register HERE.
Here is a Quick Page freebie I made using Memory Lane. Please remember that freebies are for PERSONAL use and should not be shared or redistributed. Just send your friends to my blog to download. You can click on the preview to download.
This is a layout I made using this quick page. I used two papers in the kit and adjusted the blending modes, and I really like the background I came up with. Kind of hard to see the details on the preview, but it really is pretty. This is my uncle and my dad, respectively - the only two siblings in their family who immigrated from Italy to the United States, many years ago.
Have a great week, I'll be back soon!
