New Kit, a little contest and more!

Good morning! It's been way too long since I blogged so today I am going to do it up big - I have a new kit to show you, new layouts and a contest! Lots of fun stuff!

On a personal note, I can't believe that Aidan starts 1st Grade next week. Wow! He's really grown into a goofy boy this Summer. He's such a nut - filled with goofy smiles, expressions, dances and more. I hope that goofiness doesn't translate to him getting into trouble at school. He had no trouble last year but he is so much more animated now.

Zoey girl is living it up! We decided it was time to give her her own room and she is thrilled. I am in the process of decorating it and I am having the greatest time taking advantage of all the great altered projects at Traci Reed's Team blog and Dani Mogstad's Girl Talk. Zoey is also excited because she has a new bunny! His name is Bun Bun and he is sooo cute and furry!

Eli turned 2 on the 12th. We had a family birthday party with fun bright red cupcakes and lots of Diego presents. It looked like Diego mania in our living room.

I am so lucky to be on the best CT's! I've been a bad blogger and haven't kept up so instead I created a slide show with many of my recent layouts using kits by Traci Reed, Dani Mogstad and LaWanna Desjardin.

I am very excited to share with you my newest kit! After more than a month away from designing - it felt great to get back into it. My newest kit is titled "Grammie's Apron" and you can see it at the top of the post. It is available at Scrapbook-Bytes. I'm really pleased with how it turned out and hope you like it too! My CT is working away with it and I hope to share some layouts with you that they have done with it soon!

Okay, now for the contest! Did you know that the Scrapbook-Bytes Design Team puts together an incredible monthly megakit available for only $5.00? They are available here. I participated in the July kit and therefore have 1 to give away to 1 lucky blog commenter. So, leave a comment for me and my DH will pick a random number and that person will be the winner.

Here is a preview of the July kit:

Pretty isn't it! All you have to do is leave a comment before Wednesday at noon and you could win it!

One last thing to share - today Fantacy is having a crop at 1:00 - 2:00 in the Scrapbook-Bytes chat room. I have it on good authority that the chat freebie is fabulous. So join Fantacy - she's a lot of fun and you'll do a layout and get a beautiful freebie. For more information, visit here.

Thanks so much for visiting and staying with me this long! Have a great day!

I really like the new kit. I have been busy lately doing a book for my mom;s 70th birthday. Went to AL for a week. Her 3 brothers all came so really made her day and there were 75 people. Her brothers didn't realize how well she was like as they all live out of state. Still waiting for Sarah to come so we can get together. I am suppose to start new chemo the middle of sept so really want to do something before then. Guess I have left a long enough commet. Deb06 in SBB
