Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Off to Disney We Go!

I honestly have no idea when my next post will be, I would love to be able to give ya'll some updates from Disney, but I'm not real sure what the WiFi situation will be. I'll do what I can. I do know this, Disney Resorts says internet access is available for an additional fee, but I'm sure it's priced like everything else at Disney and I am NOT paying out the wazoo to get on the internet! I'll just have to put my big girl ears on and deal with it!

Here's a LO of Matt, Shawna, Wyatt and Lilly at the beach. I used the 'page starter' frame.

Full Blown Panic Mode!!!

Yep, I'm in full blown panic mode right about now, it's only 4 days till Disney, but it's just 2 days till we LEAVE!!! We will be leaving early Saturday morning and driving to Pensacola, where we have a hotel on the beach booked. That's the only reason I'm enduring a 16 hour drive and not flying out, I can't miss seeing the rugrats for their first time at a REAL beach. (Yucky Galveston doesn't count). Monday morning we check out and head on to Disneyworld.
Today and tomorrow I am 'gonna be running around like a chicken with it's head cut off (insert apologies to any PETA people here). Today is mani-pedi, and I am sure that tomorrow will bring that inevitable last minute trip to Hellmart. Of course, then I will have to pack some more!
Speaking of the beach, I've been noodling around with some stuff to get in the mood. Today we have a nifty 3-D sand alpha I made courtesy of a template available from Gunhild Storeide. It's in full sheets, I didn't have time to cut it all out. Just use the lasso tool and copy & paste. Password is: panic

I Smell Leftovers!

*Sniff, sniff*, is that leftovers I smell? Yep, sure enough, I couldn't stop messing with the June CC stuff. There's not a whole lot of stuff, but I think it makes a nice addition. I haven't done a clustered border for a while, so here's one for ya'll, stuffed full of seashells, string and seaweed. Then, we have a couple of 12 x 12 shadow box frames, a shell and pebble cluster and a messy bunch of ribbon to put into them. I also made a 'page starter', kind of a do it yourself QP! Just plop in a background paper and your photos. And wait, there's more! If you need a sandy background, I have included that! Password is: yummy
I split it into two parts for easier downloading, be sure to get both of them. I hope ya'll enjoy it,
and let me know what you think!

Big, No Not Big, I Mean HUMONGOUS, News!!!!

Okay, just let me say that I joke about having Depends moments all of the time, but today I actually came really close to having a REAL one! The day started out really cruddy and I was in a pretty lousy mood. I logged on to DSO to get my morning fix, and saw I had a PM from Bunny. She asked for my phone #, so I sent it. Hmmm... velly, velly interesting! Around 2:00 I got a call from Bunny Cates (the owner of DSO), herself, inviting me to be an official DSO team member!!! Now if that's not pee in your pants news, I don't know what is! I'm so EXCITED!!!
I can't give out any details at the moment, except that ya'll should definitely stay tuned for updates! I promise you, this is big, big, BIG!!!

June Color Challenge kit is here!

KimBob's swatch for the June Color Challenge at DSO looked very 'beachy' to me, so that's the general direction I took for my kit. Here's what I have so far, I wanted to go ahead and get it posted for ya'll to play with. Oh yeah, there are still some things I'm fiddling with, so definitely look for leftovers later this month! I am particularly proud of the clustered title, frame and border. Let me know what ya'll think, and if you have any suggestions for something you'd like to see feel free to ask! Password is: beach

More Angels Tears

Here are some more LO's that I have created using the "Angels Tears" collab kit from Kim Broedelet and Jenni Rousseau. This is such a terrific kit, pick it up now while it's still on sale! The pics are all of Matt the Brat and My Girl Shawna during their weekend at Panther Creek Ranch. She put the photos on my flash drive and gave me a direct order that she had BETTER see some scrap pages! I am teaching her digi, she created her first page the other night and it was beautiful!
BTW...KimBob has published some of these LO's on her blog, but she says I have to stop getting so excited I pee in my pants everytime she does, so even though I do have a Depends moment when it happens, let's just let it be our little secret, okay?
Oh WOW! When I went to get the link for Chaos Lounge, I saw that Jenni has published the Matthew LO!!! WooHoo, go me!

Ya'll have a great weekend!
MWAH!!! Vicki
